Having spent twenty five years travelling through work I truely understand how we all enjoy those little things that make a difference when away from home. I have taken some of those ‘creature comforts’ from far and wide and packaged them up to ensure that your precious time away from home is equally as comfortable! I also love the area we live in and hope that we can give you a little glimpse into all the lovely things to see and do in the region and how best to enjoy them. You will find some very helpful information when you arrive!
Ruth purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2003
Why Ruth chose Petworth
We fell in love with the location. With a lovely 12th Century Church overlooking the property from the rear and great views from our upper garden over the Rother Valley and on to the South Downs to the front coupled with Petworth House and Park with its wandering herd of fallow deer makes the location, with its easy accessibility to London and the transport hubs within the South East an ideal location for family life. In April 2017 we completed a full renovation of your room and space to ensure that you can enjoy the ‘Simplicity, Comfort & Charm’ that we have created in this lovely location.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
The location! A stone built 12th Century church, which when lit at night provides a stunning back drop for our property and features in paintings by Turner and Constable. The Rother Valley rolls away from the front of The property and some four miles distant rises up to the South Downs. Sat within an area of outstanding natural beauty and within the South Downs National Park you have direct access to Petworth, West Wittering Beach, Brighton, London, Heathrow, Gatwick and the South Coast ferry terminals. Our photos provide a sneak preview, see what you think!
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Lovely property, great location
Property had everything you needed and the breakfast was a really lovely touch.... not to mention the delicious lemon drizzle cake!
Good location, plenty of walks and a great pub literally steps away.
The owners were friendly and helpful and great with recommendations of places to eat and walk nearby.
We had a lovely stay, thank you!
Gorgeous retreat in the glorious Sussex countryside. Finished to a very high quality with very warm and welcoming hosts. Beautiful walks in the countryside, great local pubs and restaurants, and within easy driving distance of Goodwood.
Thank you very much for taking the time to provide a review and so pleased you both had a comfortable stay and a great break over the weekend. Hope you arrived home safely!
