Enjoy a home away from home stay in our cosy cottage ground floor bedroom. The 5ft bed has a memory foam mattress with egyptian cotton bedding. There is a small fridge, kettle, toaster, cafetiere, microwave, desk/table, wardrobe, chest of drawers, tv, radio. Everything you need for your continental breakfast is in the kitchenette corner. Home made bread, cereal, fresh fruit, butter, jams, milk, yoghurt and juice, illy coffee & choice of teas. Watch the garden birds from the window seat.

The space
The Garden Room bedroom and Shower Room are just through our front door and off the hallway a little distance away from the rest of the house. We have recently purchased privacy/anti corona screen so guests and us can keep 2m apart. There is alcohol hand sanitizer on the hallway table.
We use high quality anti bacterial cleaning products throughout our home.

We are not overlooked and have horse fields all around at the rear and open farm land at the front. Good view of garden and wild birds & squirrels that feed on bird feeders through the bedroom window.

The shower room is the very next door to your bedroom. There is an excellent pressure shower with lashings of hot water and, toilet and wash hand basin and Mirror. Towels will either be in your bedroom or on the radiator in shower room. Complimentary toiletries provided.

We would happily accommodate a small child or infant - I could make up a small camp style bed but I have no cot for a baby so guests would need to bring their own travel cot.

Guest access
Guests are very welcome to stay at our cottage throughout the day, Sometimes we will be working from home and some days we will be away. Everything for breakfast is in your room Breakfast includes: cereal, muesli, fresh fruit, yoghurt, bread (home made) and preserves. Let me know if you are intolerant to gluten or dairy. Fresh items are in the fridge and cereals and crockery and cutlery are in the kitchen corner trolley under the kettle & toaster there is also a microwave for guests to heat ready meals. Fresh filtered water is in the bottle and please feel free to top up from our kitchen filter tap. When you have finished breakfast please leave all dirty crockery on the tray just outside your room and I remove later and replace items if needed. We are not permitting guests to share our kitchen to cook suppers due to Covid 19, we are sure you understand and thank you for your cooperation.
However, if you would like to use our chiminea there are logs available at £6 per bag. Please feel free to enjoy our garden, there are plenty of chairs, tables and parasols and there are always plenty of visiting wild birds to see feeding on the bird feeders. You may also see our chickens roaming free in the garden.
If you need to do some laundry - there is a fee of £5 per load. We have a great washing line in the garden for free or a tumble drier in the utility shed at a charge of £3.

Other things to note
Due to the Corona Virus we have gone back to offering individual complimentary toiletries, shampoo, conditioner, shower wash, body lotion and soap.

We compost green waste and your tea bags and coffee grouts. Any toast crusts get recycled into eggs by our chickens that you will probably see from window.

Whatever the weather we have lots of interesting places very close by that can be explored by foot or bicycle or car. We are very close to Chichester Harbour and all that it offers.

Bike hire with app bikes is available here.

The famous Crab & Lobster pub is in Mill Hamlet Sidlesham.l- very cosy and
Welcoming but a bit pricey. There are some lovely walks around here one to Pagham, Sidlesham and across to Church norton Via the RSPB Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve. So take your binoculars. Another pub is the Anchor Pub in Sidlesham about 1.5 miles away, the Lamb Pub near Itchenor is 2 miles away, The Ship Inn at Itchenor is 4 miles (our favourite).

Chichester Harbour Conservancy manage the Chichester Harbour and there are boat trips available to explore the harbour. Plus there is a ferry (the Itchy Bosom ferry) from Itchenor to Bosham for foot passengers and bikes. The conservancy have a selection of events/walks and courses available throughout the year. We have a good choice of beaches ranging from West Wittering, East Wittering, Bracklesham, Selsey and Church Norton. Chichester Festival Theatre is 4 miles away and has a fabulous selection of drama and music this season.

Other places of interest are: Kingley Vale Nature Reserve, Fishbourne Roman Palace, West Dean Gardens, Tangmere Aviation Museum, Portsmouth Historic Dock Yard & Gun Wharf Quay shopping.

We enjoy living where we are as we have the best of both worlds, the South Downs just a few miles to the north and the sea just a couple to the south. We love meeting new people and hearing their stories and will give you a warm welcome to our cosy cottage. When I'm not gardening I love to be out running or walking along the foreshore of the Manhood Peninsular or Chichester Harbour. Or better still on our small boat fishing for our supper with my husband. We grow lots of vegetables and fruit and we love cooking.
