The beautiful market town of Petworth, a centre for arts and culture is  just under 2 miles away.  Spend a day looking around Petworth House, antique shops and a enjoy and quiet lunch.



The city of Chichester is 11 miles away with its wide range of shops, restaurants, Cathedral and of course Chichester Festival Theatre.


Both Goodwood Racecourse, Motor Circuit and House are 7 - 8 miles away across the South Downs.  A perfect place to stay for the many events they hold.



The historic market town of Midhurst holds a unique position at the heart of the South Downs National Park. Plenty of shops and restaurants and  Cowdray Park for polo.



A pretty little village at the bottom of the Downs, with a  pottery, tea room, Castle and Chalk Pit Museum  are well worth a visit.


“The attention to detail was all so beautifully done & authentic. The breakfast was excellent as were their cream teas. It was in a tranquil location with lots of interesting places to visit nearby.”
