The converted studio is light and newly decorated and extremely comfortable and found in a traditional West Sussex village, within the heart of the South Downs National Park.
The property is within a village with its own green, church, pub, shop, pharmacy and grocers, but backs immediately onto open countryside for walking or running. Perfect for a relaxing weekend away from it all, or a base for exploring the countryside, museums and national trust houses, for boutique shopping and antique browsing and of course, fantastic country pubs. From Goodwood to Cowdray Polo, from Guildford's water park to treetop adventures, there is plenty for everyone to do.
It sleeps four people in one large double (superking) and one twin bedroom. A sofa bed in the sitting room can be used for a fifth person if needed.
It has a generous open plan kitchen and sitting room, with a table for 6 and a seating area with two large sofas and two armchairs to ensure maximum comfort while relaxing. The bathroom has a bath with shower and loo, plus there is a second separate loo. It is ideal for families, couples or groups of friends. It has wheelchair access.
The studio is opposite the main 17th century listed country cottage, which sits within its private 2 acre garden. The garden includes a large lawn, and a heated swimming pool (summer months) and tennis court. In addition there is an enclosed trampoline and a set of treble swings. These facilities may be used subject to prior arrangement.
Access is up a private lane which we share with a few other houses, and continues onto glorious walks, runs and bicycle rides. Just 10 minutes from the A3, you will suddenly find yourself in rolling countryside, off the beaten track but close to shops and comprehensive amenities.
We are within easy walking distance of the village shop, green grocer, the village pub and church. The town of Haslemere with its boutique shops is less than 10 minutes drive. For supplies it has a ‘Cook’, Waitrose, Tescos. The town of Liphook, equally close has a large Sainsburys. While Midhurst, famous for Polo at Cowdray is 10 minutes in the other direction.
Within 15 minutes of the property (some walkable) are some of the best pubs you may ever find, including The Duke of Cumberland, The Rising Sun at Milland (delicious food and great atmostphere, and provides takeaways), Noah’s Ark at Lurgarshall for a typical lunch or supper on the cricket green), the Lickfold for both tapas and dining, and the Horse Guards at Tillington. If you prefer, you could stroll to the Red Lion for a pint on the green. We have some great local takeaways if you prefer to stay in and not cook– including the Banyan Tree indian cuisine – absolutely delicious.
We can be used as an access point for many leisure and cultural activities: Hot air ballooning is from our own village green; Petworth antiques and boutiques, Chichester (Goodwood racing, Motor Sports, Festival of Speed, and the famous Revival as well as relaxed shopping on the pedestrianised High Street for larger retailers as well as smaller boutiques); and Guildford (which has the indoor waterpark at the Spectrum; Tree top adventures at Wild Wood, and Air Hop trampolining park). Our nearest golf course - one of many nearby - is Liphook (under 10 minutes). 50 minutes south you will find beaches at West Wittering, Littlehampton and sailing at Itchenor, and at Portsmouth a fantastic shopping outlet at Gun Wharf.
In addition there are many specific places of interest including West Dean Gardens, the Roman Palace at Fishbourne, Chichester Cathedral, modern art at the Pallant House Gallery; Chichester Sculpture Park, the Weald and Downe Museum and Guildford Castle as well as the winery at Lurgarshall. Parks and houses include: Alice Holts, Petworth House and Park, Winkworth Arboretum, Hatchlands, Loseley Park. Theatres are found at Chichester (pre London debuts usually); and Guildford. Haslemere Halls provides a must see local village hall type cinema experience.
We are under an hour from Gatwick and Heathrow.
The studio is a perfect place to relax and unwind in total comfort. With so much to do in and around the area it is a great base for a perfect holiday.
We are very happy to discuss rates for longer term rentals for example over the polo season or racing season, holiday lets.
