A lovely cosy and bright cottage which is newly refurbished in the heart of the South Downs National Park. South Stoke is a tiny hamlet in the depths of the countryside next to the River Arun, close to the wonderful historic centre of Arundel and its magnificent castle. You can walk or cycle straight out the door onto great routes along the river and up into the downland too.
This is a lovely simple ex-farm cottage with a large open plan kitchen and dining area (all newly installed and decorated) with a huge sliding door opening onto the stunning landscape beyond and onto the decked outside eating area.
There is a cosy snug with huge sofa, wood burning stove and television, off which there is a utility room with downstairs toilet. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms - 2 with kingsize beds and one with a bunk bed. There is also a travel cot and high chair at the cottage. The bathroom is also upstairs with a bath and a shower in the bath.
You will be given a key code for the key safe. There is a parking area in front of the property. Please close gates as the cottage is within a large estate with sheep/cattle etc.
Interaction with guests
Please call me if you have any urgent problems during your stay.
Shelley (who cleans the cottage) and Mark her husband live next door, but they do have a lot of children to look after so please do not disturb them unless you think it is absolutely necessary!
