About Mrs Sara Child
I've lived in the village of Patching for over 20 years and my husband and I have brought up our two children in the village. I love sharing my knowledge of the area with guests.
Why Mrs Sara Child chose Arun District
The cottage is a really pretty brick and flint Victorian cottage. We couldn't fail to fall in love with it the first time we saw it. We hope that you will too. It has a wealth of period features, but some up to date things too which make it comfortable. We've lived in the village for over 20 years, so it's a location which is close to my heart. The village is within the South Downs National Park. The local scenery is beautiful and there are good links to many attractions in the surrounding area.

Cosy Character Cottage
We would thoroughly recommend this pretty cottage, especially for dog owners. It was cosy, warm and well equipped, with a very comfy bed and lovely large garden.There were some thoughtful extra touches too, such as dog towels and collars to use with the holiday contact on. The location is great, just a short walk through the village to the South Downs and a very nice 'dog friendly' pub five minutes in the other direction. We were spoilt for choice for things to do during our stay, with Arundel a short drive away and several beaches we could visit.
Clean, cosy and fantastic location.
Quaint and homely
Great to stay in an old house not too pristine especially when the weather is wet and clothes and shoes are always damp.
Cosy and relaxing
Sara made us feel very welcome and gave us all necessary guidance for local walks, food And even a local plant nursery :) . France cottage is set in a vey idyllic location with plenty of walks for us and our dog. We had a lovely short break and would want to come back for more.
France Cottage is lovely and Sarah made us feel very welcome. The cottage had all we needed to enjoy a happy and comfortable stay. Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed the garden, which is beautiful, the wild bunnies and the chickens and horses. We would love to stay again and happily recommend it to all.
Lovely cottage, beautiful location
France Cottage is comfortable, practical and the owners very welcoming and helpful. The decor inside has been given a lot of thought and care so it feels like a home from home. A dog towel and even a collar with the contact details for the owner's own home for visiting dogs, plus water bowls, dog and child toys are lovely details that show the thought that has been put into making this a perfect holiday or short break location. We loved the garden, safe for dogs and well looked after. The only down side we could find was that the cottage does not have a shower, but the bath and bathroom are quite adequate.
