Chichester House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10. 5 Bedrooms. 5 Baths.

Just become available for holiday lets...

Beautifully refurbished Victorian house combines the character and charm of an older building with the sleek modern finishes of a contemporary home in a superb rural setting.

Ground Floor

The welcoming reception hall has a vaulted ceiling with a large galleried landing flooding the space with natural light whilst double doors open on to the terrace and beyond. From the reception hall, double doors open on to the summer sitting room with large french doors doors opening on to the garden. A central fireplace creates an attractive focal point to the room with openings on either side, leading through to the cosy winter sitting room and beyond to the study.

The large kitchen/family room is the focus of family living with triple aspect views and doors on to the terrace and gardens. The kitchen is fitted with a stylish range of contemporary units and stone work surfaces together with a comprehensive range of integrated appliances. Gently rising curved steps lead from the kitchen area to the adjoining tower, formerly a falconry, which has been converted to create a ground floor playroom within easy access of the main family living area. From here, a curved staircase leads up to a first floor second playroom or home office.

First Floor

The galleried landing leads to five bedroom suites including both principal and guest suites. Accessed by way of north and south landings, this allows the bedroom accommodation to be divided between family and guest accommodation or alternatively giving older children a greater degree of independence if desired.

Great house for big groups and families

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. Great sized rooms with lots of outdoor space. Perfect for a weekend away with friends with children. There's a beautiful walk not too far away and some great pub recommendations!

Sanctuary in the South Downs

  • 5 of 5

My family of 2 adults and 5 children together with my parents stayed 9 nights at the house in July 2016. The property is impressive. A sympathetic extension and modernisation of a period house resulting in spacious, well lit and modern rooms throughout. 5 double/twin bedrooms each with en-suite bath. The main living/dining room has all modern kitchen features you could need. The secondary "wing" has a more homely / cosy feel with TV area ideal for teenage children wanting their own space. The house has thoughtfully designed in a well equipped games room which includes table tennis and a multiple board games and this area proves very popular with the under 12 year age set! The house was clean and supplied with good quality linens and towels, etc.

The house is located on the fringe of the South Downs National park approx 10-15 minutes drive from Chichester. The well maintained grounds are secure and secluded with wide open spaces for children to explore safely and many footpaths and trails nearby to explore.

Chichester has Waitrose and Sainsburys for shopping requirements and is a compact, prosperous and largely unspoilt city. We found it a pleasure to explore over a few days. Also worth venturing to Arundel and Portsmouth. The area has many pubs/restaurants for all budgets.

Couples Retreat 2016

  • 5 of 5

Every year 5-6 couples meet for a child free weekend of catching up, relaxing and laughter. This house provided the perfect location for just that. Beautiful garden to soak up the sun and a lovely communal seating, dining, kitchen area for the evening. The bedrooms were comfy and well equipped. We took a walk (probably about 30 mins) to the Fox & Hounds for lunch on the Saturday. A nice walk but no pavements so had to keep eyes and ears open for cars.

Questions that I asked were answered before our visit and the property was just as fact I'd say better in real life than in the pictures.

Would definately recommend this property to others

This house is absolutely beautiful, pictures don't quite do it justice. It was wonderfully clean, with all necessary facilities and is in a beautiful area of the country.

We will definitely be visiting again!!

Weekend away

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two nights in November, lovely house and amenities. The games room was a hit. The rooms were all big and well decorated. the water is an issue for big groups who are trying to shower. We had to wait for periods for the water to come back on and for it to heat up. That was the only downside of the whole weekend! It would be appreciated if there were flannels in the bathroom just so the towels don't get to messed up. The laundry was all spotless and for such a wet weekend it was lovely and toasty in the house. Thanks to the Owner for having the heating on when we arrived.

Owner's Response: Hi Rebecca, Thank you so much for your feedback, we really appreciate this as we can only learn from what our guests tell us to improve our house. We do have a very large water tank (in fact it is made up of three tanks) to be able to cater for large groups, but I guess if there is a very high usage of people showering, having baths, using the kitchen etc all at the same time, this could have affected the water. We do set the hot water on continuous so it is on all day so I am sorry for this but happy to hear it didn't affect you weekend too much. We have asked our plumber just to check everything is running smoothly so that this does not happen again. Best wishes, Michaela
