This charming, Grade II listed holiday cottage, one of a pair, stands elegantly along the green and set back from the road leading to the village shop, tea rooms and pub. Close to the Hampshire/West Sussex border, Greenside Cottage makes a delightful retreat for families or couples, and has been lovingly restored yet still retains some original features, such as leaded windows and a wood-burning stove in an inglenook fireplace. The enclosed lawned garden is a particular feature, having been designed by an award-winning landscaper. There is a shaded seating area, which is the perfect spot to enjoy alfresco dining or an aperitif in warmer weather. There is also a bike store for those wishing to bring their own bicycles. The area is renowned for its walking and cycling routes being situated in the South Downs National Park. Compton is ideally placed for exploring the delights of the region, and is within easy driving distance of Petersfield and the beautiful, cathedral city of Chichester, which also has a golf course and boat tours around the harbour.
