We have a newly fitted family bathroom available upstairs which is shared with whoever is staying. Fresh towels are always available. There is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room where you are welcome to use the facilities to prepare your own meals if you wish and store food in the fridge/freezer. Please do tidy up after :-) .Laundry facilities are available at a small extra cost.. We do want you to feel comfortable and if you have any other requirements do please ask.
We have an attractive south-facing garden running alongside our two cottages and ample off-road parking space. we have a permanent built in barbecue guests are most welcome to use in our garden.
Our home is situated on the A29 10 minutes drive from Chichester. The A29 is a main road and although it quietens down a lot at night for those of you with sensitive ears this might not be the place for you. There is a mainline railway station one and a half miles away with a six minute journey into Chichester, we will give lifts to the railway station if needed. There are only a few buses that run each day from Westergate to Chichester, but there is a more regular service to Bognor Regis.
The historic city of Chichester with it's beautiful cathedral, famous Festival Theatre, Fishbourne Roman Palace, museums, art gallery, gardens together with it's many interesting independent shops and restaurants is about 5 miles away. Whilst there don't miss the opportunity to visit our very own shop ( (Website hidden by Airbnb) selling decorative arts and crafts from around the world.. We offer our guests a discount on any purchases they may make.
Arundel which boasts a magnificent castle set above the Arun River valley is also close by as are both Fontwell and Goodwood race courses.
The coast together with its resorts and beaches is within easy reach as is the newly designated South Downs National Park ideal for trekking, cycling and horse riding. It also boast a number of outdoor museums and Nature Reserves such as Kingley Vale reputed to be the largest natural Yew forest in Europe.
Whether you prefer the seaside or the beautiful rolling countryside of the Sussex Downs there is much to enjoy in our area.
