About Property Manager
I have successfully run 2 holiday properties in West Sussex for 8 years. I love my work and enjoy seeing visitors return year after year. I always offer a personal touch - meeting and greeting guests, always being on the end of a phone.
Property Manager purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Property Manager chose Chichester
Oak lodge was built in the grounds of Oak House, mainly to provide much needed accommodation for Goodwood events. In the first year I got my first lot of guests to each event and most have been coming every year since. Good friendships have been made. The Lodge is available throughout the year and is a great location for week end or mid week breaks or as a very well equipped self contained home has provided a longer term home for people waiting to move or securing temporary work in the area. Everyone comments what a great location it is - 2 miles out ogf beautiful Chichester but on the edge of South Downs National Park and only 10 mins from the coast.

4 night get away with our 2 dogs
Thoroughly enjoyed our get away with our 2 dogs , know the area fairly well as sister lives in Chichester, welcomed by Debbie which was nice ( very friendly ) & then left alone to enjoy our stay which we appreciated after our drive down , unloaded bags etc & entered lodge with dogs , was very impressed , most welcoming , clean & spacious , dogs made themselves at home straight away , Jessie our Spaniel looking for a tennis ball which was funny so let her out to garden & she found one in bush within minutes !! Result ! Like a child ! Had a lovely stay , bed was so comfy , kitchen & bathroom great , had a fantastic stay as weather was on our side , would definitely return to the lodge as everything we hoped for , Jessie & Reggie were on their best behaviour ! the only things that would give as any Criticism to owners is as advertised as Dog Friendly need to secure the garden area with 2 gates , 1 to owners garden & 1 to front entrance as would make more relaxing for residents renting the lodge & to be fair Rex the owner did say on passing him one morn that he needs to put a gate up , also the hob needs updating as hubby tried to cook eggs & bacon etc & hob was painful , took over 20 mins plus to cook bacon , very dated but putting that aside would def return as that is trivial really but was so so slow at heating up , we found the lodge so relaxing , loved it & thank you
Great country stay
A perfect retreat for a couple in the heart of the Sussex countryside. Ideally located for exploring nearby area with amazing countryside and great local pubs. Lodge was well equipped and well presented upon arrival. Debbie was a great host and made the whole experience a great pleasure.
Excellent stay in a beautiful part of the Country.
Thank you Deborah for a lovely break in your ideal self catering lodge.
Very clean , all everyday required essentials provided , comfy and quite location 👍� everything I wanted
From my stay . Thankyou
We had a very comfortable and happy stay.
The owners were hospitable and were helpful in every way.
Absolutely spot on. The lodge is beautiful, with lovely fixtures and fittings throughout. Your own parking space and area of garden (that can be secured if - as I was - you are visiting with dogs) and a separate seated terrace area with lovely views over the fields. The owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. An easy 10 minute 3 mile drive into central Chichester. An absolute winner - we will be back!
(NB - the bedroom area has a beautiful vaulted window - which a standard set of curtains only partially covers. If you are visiting in the summer months, and you are a light sleeper, you might like to ask the owners for an extra blackout blind for the top section of the window, for when the sun rises early. They really have thought of everything....)
