Within walking distance of the centre of Midhurst which lies at the heart of the South Downs National Park, The Old Dairy is a fantastic place from which to explore the local area and all that it has to offer.
There is something for everyone from walking or mountain-biking on the South Downs Way (local bike hire available) to visiting the beautiful National Trust gardens at Woolbeding, Polo at Cowdray Park or visit the fantastic sandy beach at West Wittering. Goodwood is a short drive away.
The Old Dairy is a detached, single storey former cow shed adjacent to our family home and sharing a driveway which forms a courtyard between the two properties.
The open plan living area has a fully functional kitchen with fridge (including small freezer compartment) oven, hob, extractor fan, microwave oven, washing machine, kettle & toaster. There is a table and chairs for two, a sofa and a TV with Freeview as well as a Bluetooth speaker and a selection of books and games. There is also a full length mirror.
The living area is separated from the bedroom by a sliding door.
The bedroom has a double bed with mattress topper and king size quilt. The duvet and pillows are feather and down and the bed linen is Egyptian cotton. Within the bedroom, there is a freestanding bath with hand held spray attachment, toilet & sink (toiletries are provided). There is a privacy screen separating the two functions but it is essentially open plan (please see photos 8 and 9) Double glass doors open on to the patio. As the patio leads into our garden there are muslin curtains at the doors to provide additional privacy during the day without blocking the light as well as blackout roller blinds to all of the bedroom windows for night time. There is also a fan as we have had a very warm summer this year!
There are USB charging points in the living area and bedroom.
The Old Dairy has under floor heating and a combination boiler which provides hot water instantly.
Outside to the rear is a small patio area with a table and chairs. There is also an outside light.
To the front is a shared parking area with 1 guest parking space. This is well lit by the street lamp opposite our home and an outside light to the front door (which will be left on for you if you are arriving after dark)
I offer self check-in and will send details once your booking has been confirmed.
There is an information folder in the Old Dairy containing suggestions for things to do, places to visit and eating out, together with a selection of leaflets for local attractions. My house manual and instructions for any equipment can also be found here.
If you have any questions or need any help then I am always available either through HomeAway messaging or in person (I am just next door, please feel free to call on me) but otherwise I will leave you to enjoy your stay.
Accommodation is provided on a self-catering basis. I will also provide a small amount of tea, coffee, sugar and milk together with washing up basics, tea towels, cooking oil, salt, pepper, kitchen roll, foil and cling film.
I am happy to accommodate infants and would ask that you bring with you any equipment that they may require during your stay.
My husband, Alistair is a keen road rider and is happy to advise on routes, please ask. Bicycle hire is available locally (a five minute walk away) If you would like to bring your own then you are welcome to store them on the guest patio or within the accommodation (please use the tarpaulin in the cupboard under the sink if they are muddy!)
We are located in a quiet lane just a five minute walk away from Midhurst which caters for your everyday needs with a supermarket, convenience store, chemist, banks, post office, excellent butcher and baker, shops, cafes and restaurants. There is also a farm shop nearby. Midhurst is located within the South Downs National Park and is surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Walk straight from our gate in the opposite direction and within 5 minutes you will find yourself on Midhurst Common where there are lots of lovely walking routes through the woodland. There is also a children's play park on the edge of the common if you are travelling with infants.
All of the places pictured in this listing are within a 15 minute walk from the Old Dairy.
If you are visiting to attend a wedding, several venues are within walking distance including The Spread Eagle Hotel (10 minutes) and The Walled Garden (20 minutes) Grittenham Barn and Southdowns Manor are both a 10 minute car journey away. If you require a taxi during your stay it is best to book in advance and I am happy to recommend some local companies.
