Our Home

The house

This is a very lovely Georgian stone built cottage with large airy rooms and a fantastic garden. The cottage is very private with its own driveway, outdoor washing line and vegetable patch.

The house is next to the main Georgian farmhouse, where I grew up with my parents, who still live in the main house.

More about this property

The house and cottage sit on a three acres of land, where my parents keep chickens and two small and friendly dogs, who are very safe with children. You may see them on their land from time to time.

The kitchen has an AGA cooker and a large round table for the family to eat at, and it is fitted with a fridge-freezer, a washing machine, a dishwasher, and an excellent selection of cooking equipment.

The sitting room is very large and peaceful. It has a wood burning stove, two very large sofas, and a flatscreen TV with a range of channels. We also have a Chromecast, so you can watch any film you like through that.

Upstairs you will find a very large double bedroom with a traditional French wooden bed, a huge wardrobe, and plenty of space to put an extra bed. The bedroom looks over the beautiful garden.

There is also a small single bedroom with a chest of drawers, a single bed, and room to blow up one of our two high quality air beds for additional person(s).

The bathroom is large and airy with a bathtub and a shower, a toilet, a wash basin, a cupboard and a cork floor with views to the garden.

The garden

There is a large table with chairs for outdoor dining, and a barbecue.

We also have a big fig tree in the garden and some fruit trees, such as plum and apple.

We have our own established vegetable plot, where we grow many things to eat including French beans, spinach, courgette, tomatoes, fruits, squashes, carrots, onions and herbs - you are welcome to use some of the produce and to buy fresh eggs from my parents.

A cleaner can be arranged at your cost of £20 per day (depending on how many days you require her to be here).

Well behaved, fully house trained dogs will be considered.


Our Neighbourhood Beach

The house is surrounded by fields, normally home to sheep and cows from Goodwood's organic farm - it is a peaceful place, abundant with beauty.

We are located in the heart of Goodwood, just three minutes' walk from the world famous vintage motor racing circuit and airfield, where Goodwood hosts fantastic events.

More about the neighbourhood

Goodwood has wonderful rolling hills and a beautiful landscape, which is great for walks. There are a number of fabulous country pubs in the area, where you can sometimes find live folk music.

The equally famous horse racing venue is a two-minute drive away from the house. The stunning Goodwood Country Club and Spa offers a very reasonable day membership of £25 and is a one-minute drive from your door.

As we are just a two-minute drive from the small airfield. You will witness noise from vintage aeroplanes, and quite possibly from the famous Goodwood events that run just minutes walk from your door. You are likely to see the most fabulous small vintage planes flying past the house, and may be lucky enough to witness a free air display!

Goodwood's rolling hills are some of the most beautiful downs in the country and make for wonderful walks and picnics. There are also some fantastic local pubs in the area, where you can enjoy some of the best food in Sussex.

You are three minutes' drive from the Weald and Downland Museum, famous for their historic buildings and their food and music festivals, which are really fun to visit for the whole family.

Also you are just five minutes from West Dean College, where they run a range of arts and crafts workshops.

You are three miles from the historic City of Chichester, which has the famous Chichester Festival Theatre, an abundance of shops and restaurants, not to mention the beautiful Cathedral, and stunning stone built city walls.

The large towns of Brighton (on the sea) and Portsmouth (a famous port) are both an hour away. They are fantastic places to explore - Brighton is very fashionable and home to some great restaurants and bars, and of course the famous Lanes (with millions of independent artistic shops and cafés).

You can get to some of England's most famous and wonderful beaches (West Witterings) in thirty minutes, and to Selsey, where you can buy fresh fish, lobster and crab straight out of the sea from the fisherman.

London is an hour and forty minutes away by train from Chichester; it makes a pretty easy day trip, and the line goes straight into Victoria, so right into the centre of town.


About Us

We are a couple in our late thirties / early forties.

I am an NHS consultant, and my husband is an illustrator.

We are very well travelled and love nature, cooking, reading, music, film and gardening.

More about us

We are very friendly, kind, clean and quiet people, and we are happy to help out with watering plants, doing a bit of work on a vegetable patch, looking after animals, etc.

We live in a beautiful home next to the main house where my parents live. They are very kind and helpful, but you probably wouldn't see them much at all, as you have your own driveway and private garden/entrance to the house.
