We have just spent a week at Elm Cottage, and enjoyed it so much that we are already making plans to return.
The attractive cottage is attached to the owners beautiful 15th century thatched house, but you have total privacy & your own secluded garden, which is a real suntrap in summer if you chose not to venture out. You also have your own private car parking space on the gravel driveway right next to the cottage.
The cottage itself is quite quirky, with the comfy double bed in the lounge area, a separate kitchen & dining area, with the shower & toilet next to this. It is spotlessly clean & well equipped & we chose to dine in or barbeque most evenings.
There is a good selection of recent DVD’s and games, and maps & guides of the local area.
Carol and Jasper are a very warm and friendly couple and were always willing to offer advice on the local pubs, shopping or suggestions for day trips.
In summary - A beautiful cottage in a great location..We will return!

Wonderful hospitality from Carol, Jasper & family, but not intrusive. Loved this bijoux cottage & gorgeous garden. A welcome basket with milk, butter, bread, jam, biscuits, olives and eggs from the resident hens, also a bottle of iced Prosecco. A good base for events at Goodwood, we stayed for Festival of Speed, less than a mile up the road to the entrance & avoiding the horrendous traffic jams.
Must not forget all the animals, Milo the cat, Pedro the parrot, Salli the Jack Russell, and the latest edition Bella the Lab puppy. Various hens & cockerel, they enjoy tucking into your left overs (no meat Products) Felt very much at home here, sad to leave.
My husband and I plus our two dogs stayed at Elm Cottage whilst we had some work done on our own home locally. The cottage is warm, cosy and equipped like home from home. We all enjoyed our stay very much. Lovely garden and ideally located to Goodwood and the South Downs. We will recommend to our family and friends when they visit us. Thanks to Carol for accommodating our stay and if you ever consider selling it, please contact us first........

Perfect did not want to leave
Absolutely stunning cottage that was just what we needed. We took along our three dogs who were welcome and had an amazing time. The owners main house was joined to the cottage but we had total privacy. Thank you so much for your hospitality carol and jasper and we will be back.
