About Mrs Jane Charlton

My name is Jane Charlton and I have two girls, Bella and Lavinia. My husband is a Human rights lawyer and we all really enjoy being so close to the sea. The cottage is so manageable and cosy - it is the first time we have ever had a garden! When I was a child, we would go to West Wittering Beach as a treat or Climping and now we can go whenever we want. I work for an artist in London who gives art classes to children and adults. As a creative person, I have met artists locally and love to take photos and paint... if I have any spare time from gardening.

Why Mrs Jane Charlton chose West Sussex

Pucks cottage is perfect for us as we can see the sea from the main bedroom and it is only a 5 minute walk, also, the country walks are within easy reach and Southbourne station is only 10 minutes walk, with direct trains to London, Victoria and Clapham Junction. Being the last property in the cup-de-sac ensures privacy and peace. As it is a cut-de-sac, there is no passing traffic, only dog walkers and the occasional neighbour driving slowly down. We all know each other. It is a real community.. You holiday starts straight away as you can walk through the gate and down to the coast within minutes.

What makes this cottage unique

The highlights of the cottage are the genuine homely atmosphere original features. Having an inglenook fireplace is our best asset along with the soothing babble of the stream. From the main bedroom, you can see the sea and at night the twinkling stars in the unpolluted sky.

Quaint cottage for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as shown on the website. We all loved the place and didn't want to leave at the end of the week! There's plenty to do in the area: canoe trips, sailing, walking in the woods, beaches to visit etc. Booking with Jane was simple and straighforward and we'd recommend this lovely place to anyone wanting to have a holiday in this area.

Puck's is a charming cottage in a tranquil local.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great long weekend in the cottage with lovely coastal walks every day.

Great fresh produce available in the nearby farm shop.

Will definitely keep Puck's cottage in mind for a future break.

Wonderful Old Property Full Of Character

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do this fabulous property justice. From the moment you see it as you reach the gate it's like a little fairy-tale cottage with a lovely front garden and picturesque stream running through the back of it.

Inside the decor is in keeping with the old-worldy feel. Beautiful wooden beams and a giant fireplace. The kitchen is very spacious with necessary mod cons. There were 4 adults and 2 little ones and sizewise it was perfect. Obviously the door frames are low and walls a bit thin but what do you expect from a place this age.

Good location, stone's throw from Bosham Quay, Chichester and nearby village that used to be an oyster hub (begins with E but can't remember the name).

Only thing that would have made it perfect is if the sea was on the doorstep from the property itself.

Highly recommended.

Beautiful, secluded, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

It is a pity. Children would love it. But the stream is an attractive hazard.

The house itself is marvellous. Isolated and quiet with real character - entering over flagstone floors and on into a super conservatory via a fully equipped kitchen.

The back garden is small and a 'work in progress'. The front garden is beautiful. Sit under the trees in the evening and join the robin in bird watching!

Too much to see in the area - so we didn't go as far as we wished.

But there must be a next time.

Definitely recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for kindly taking the time to write a lovely review. The cottage indeed has many characterful features as it is constructed from reclaimed materials. We are lucky to have a clear stream running through the garden which attracts, now, rare water voles and sometimes eels and kingfishers but we do point out to guests on the site, the unsuitability for very young children as it is about 7 to 8 inches deep. We would love to accommodate you again.

Super family stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - the weather was exceptionally good so we were lucky. Lots to see and do locally and further afield. Some great pubs. The cottage is cosy and practical containing most things a family needs. However the garden does need some TLC and is not suitable for very young children in its current state. Great for more mature families.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cottage and to include the real positives about the property and area. I did spend half a day gardening, (including lawn mowing), 3 days before your arrival but maybe it was just because the typical April weather, a shower followed by very warm sun caused rapid growth which peaked during your stay through Easter week. I hope that you might be able to enjoy our cottage again in the future.

Puck's Cottage weekend visit

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Puck's cottage over the bank holiday with our 11 and 13 year old children and my parents as part of celebrations for my mum's 80th birthday. We thought the house was beautiful and also well-equipped and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed being able to do walks straight from the cottage and out along the harbour's edge. My husband and son also enjoyed swimming at high tide and we collected driftwood for a fires on the chilly evenings. We also had a great visit to Fishbourne Roman Palace and a lovely meal at the Fox Goes Free at Charlton. Jane was prompt and very helpful in all her replies to my emails.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your charming compliments. As our cottage is the last in a short cul-de-sac of only 9 properties and set back, yes, it does mean that you can start your holiday straight away with walks/activities from coastline which is only a short distance by public footpath. There are keen locals, an artist and a weaver who regularly swim when I do up at our little pebbly beach The water is warm in the summer but wet shoes are needed. Popular too for kayaking, windsurfing and fishing. I hope that you can find the time to visit again so that you can discover the different seasonal views, colours and activities.
