Yaffle Cottage is a spacious and characterful country cottage in a truly idyllic woodland setting. It is ideally located for Goodwood Revival and horse racing. It is in the middle of the South Downs National Park and was designed specifically as a holiday home; every detail has your comfort and enjoyment in mind. The cottage sleeps 8 - in 8 separate beds if required.
The Lounge is cosy and welcoming with luxurious deep sofas and an oak-beamed ceiling. There is a wood burner in the inglenook fireplace.
The Kitchen has solid beech worktops, integral dishwasher, fridge freezer and underfloor heating. All gadgets are provided and the equipment is comprehensive and top quality.
Four double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes - 2 of the bedrooms (with new King-sized Hypnos beds) are on the ground floor (so no stairs) and have en-suite bathrooms with shower over bath and heated floor tiles . The other two (King-sized Dunlopillo Royal Sovereign) share a family bathroom, and there is also a separate toilet. These last two both have big French doors which open onto an Indian sandstone terrace. One also has an additional sofa bed. These rooms can also be set up with twin single beds.
There is also a utility room with a washing-machine and separate dryer.
Finally there is a second lounge with a 55” HD smart TV, reclining leather sofa and another sofa bed. This is ideal if parents and children want separate space.
The garden is secluded, totally private and completely fenced in. The cottage looks out over private woodland with secret paths and is within an area designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', ideal for walking or riding (it really is Dog Heaven).

I am new to this web-site although I rented Yaffle Cottage for around 10 years as a holiday let. Then, in 2010 someone came along who liked it so much they stayed for 6 years! I am now back in the holiday let business and am looking forward to welcoming back some of my original guests. I quote from the 'Visitors Book' (remember them!?):-
“We fell in love with the cottage & surrounding countryside. If we win the lottery an offer will be made too difficult to refuse!” The Dean Family
“Had a fab week at Yaffle. We really recommend 'Hide-and-Seek-in-the-dark'. Airing cupboard hot but can accommodate 4 adults” Neil (age 39½ )
“Excellent accommodation. Had a wonderful time. We'll be back” - (They did come back – four times). Spensley/Coleman family.
“We had a lovely stay at Yaffle Cottage. Loved the heated tiles in the bathrooms. Recommend The Greyhound for something to eat (we mean the pub, not the animal …)” The Wetheralls & Hillmans.
“... the most beautiful setting to prepare for my wedding at Upwaltham Barn. I will treasure the memories forever, as will my very excited little bridesmaids who were very disappointed that we will not be living here for ever.” Katie Jones
