A relaxing, cosy escape in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Helen's lovely cottage. The cottage was incredibly well equipped and felt very homely. We were greeted by a lovely tray of goodies for our stay, which was a treat. We had my extended family for lunch on Christmas day and Helen had provided extra chairs - we seated 9 easily - and also organised parking for extra cars. With the Rayburn and the oven and hob, cooking Christmas lunch was a pleasure. The wood burner made the sitting room lovely and cosy, it was great to have plenty of wood provided. There are lovely walks from the door, which the dog enjoyed, also The White Horse Pub a five minute walk away where we had a delicious meal with a great ambience. Helen was so helpful and a fantastic host. All in all we had a really lovely and memorable Christmas stay there. Thank you Helen!

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage that has recently been renovated with some nice finishing touches. The cottage is spacious and light throughout and very well equipped. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and Chichester is only a short drive away. Really enjoyed the local pub (White Horse). Helen was a great host - very responsive and communicative. Would be very happy to come back and stay again.

The perfect cottage with the perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

It really is a lovely cottage. Everything was perfect including the hosts.

We arrived Friday afternoon with a bottle of wine waiting for us. Tea & coffee for our stay. The beds were comfy, good shower pressure. Great to have good wifi. Every detail was thought about. Thank you so much to Helen for letting us stay in your home. We loved it & cannot wait to come back. (The pub, White Horse is a 5 minute walk, well worth a visit).
