About Gillie Farquhar-Thomson

My family moved to Birdham in 1947 and Martins Cottage has been in family ownership since that date. I grew up in Birdham and went to school in Chichester. My own family have also grown up here. We all love this area. We have everything! We have a wonderful sandy beach minutes away, The Chichester Harbour is just down the road and historic

Gillie Farquhar-Thomson purchased this barn in 2007

Why Gillie Farquhar-Thomson chose Chichester

Recently we had a small flock of sheep in our paddock. When we gave them up we decided to turn the hay and lambing barn into two semi detached luxury holiday cottages. The cottages are in a perfect situation. They sit well back from our quiet country lane, they face South West and are full of sunshine. To add to that they look out over our four acre meadoiw that is teeming with wildlife.

What makes this barn unique

I can honestly say that I have never had a complaint! Our Visitor Books are full of the most wonderful reviews. Visitors leave looking so well and relaxed on departure. The cottages are extremely clean, comfortable, light and sunny. You could not fail to have a wonderful time.

Superb holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful cottage! We were so comfortable and made very welcome by the owner and if there had been any problems she was more than happy for us to contact her. Spotlessly clean and although we didn't cook there was plenty of equipment to do so. We spent 9 days there and really didn't want to leave. A pretty garden with garden furniture and stunning views out onto a vast expanse. Thoroughly recommend a stay there.

Perfect for family get together.

  • 5 of 5

Rented both cottages to meet up with our family. Could not have chosen a better location. Our two grandsons 2&4 loved the freedom of the meadow and also watching wildlife, woodpeckers, pheasant,lots of insects and not forgetting George the dog who was also on holiday at the owners house and who came to visit when he was out for a walk and brought his ball so that the boys could throw it for him. The cottages were very well equipped and very clean.

This is a tranquil place to be and will look forward to returning in the future.

This was a superb property : spotlessly clean, exceptionally well appointed and very comfortable. It was situated in a beautiful garden and very quiet. It was near to Chichester, the Marina and lots of places of interest. We would love to stay here again. The owner was very helpful.

The location, the setting (the weather) were all perfect. We loved our short stay and have decided to go back again one day. It's a great base for exploring the area, with lots to see and do. Highly recommended.

BAYTREE is situated in an Area of Outstanding Naturel Beauty. We are minutes from the Chichester Harbour and three miles from an award winning sandy beach. Our cottages are situated away from a quiet country lane, in our four acre meadow which is surrounded by mature trees. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place yet close to so many activities and amenities that suit all ages.
