We have owned this property since it was built in 2006 and all our family have enjoyed it for its closeness to the beaches and the Bestival. Although we don't live on the Island we have very professional agents who live close by who look after the property for us and are available if anything goes wrong.

Fantastic weekend away with the girls

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic well equipped cottage! There we're 6 of us girls and we wanted a relaxing break away and this was the perfect cottage in the most perfect spot. It has all amenities local and also Arundel is a short train ride away. We would definitely recommend the Black Rabbit in Arundel! All in all a fantastic weekend and we would all recommend this lovely home. Thanks Peter and Susan for a great stay.

What a lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I stayed at Ivy Cottage for 9 days in August and we used it as a base to explore West Sussex. We had a lovely time. The cottage is beautiful. It's spacious, clean, incredibly comfortable (especially the cosy sofas in the TV room!) and it has everything you could possibly need. The dining room looking out over the garden with all the beautiful flowers was a pleasure too. The owners, Susan and Peter, were welcoming and friendly and made us feel so at home. I would recommend this cottage to everyone, and I hope to return one day. Thank you for such a lovely family holiday.

Lovely weekend spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at Ivy Cottage for the long weekend. The cottage is very well appointed, and has a lovely rose garden and conservatory. We were very comfortable indeed. Susan was a very helpful host and gave us plenty of tips for things to do in the area. There was no shortage of great outings to do within a close locality. Great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. If you had come in a couple of weeks the roses would all be out which is very colourful. I am so pleased you found plenty to do in the area and that the Arundel Tournament was a success. I must find out more information about it. Hopefully you will come back an enjoy Ivy Cottage.

The cottage was lovely very bright and warm. Plenty of crockery and utensils, there is a store cupboard which is very handy, you just replace what you have used up , and anything you have left. We had our grandsons with us and they enjoyed the games. The beds are very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will more than likely return.

A fantastic family break in this lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was set in an ideal location for a relaxing family break. We stayed here over the New Year with some friends when the weather was less than ideal. However, the cottage was spacious and well equipped, making it very comfortable to stay indoors throughout these wet days. Seemingly very rural but also only a short walk to a major supermarket and a superb Indian restaurant/takeaway. When there was a break in the rain, there were also attractive strolls from the cottage itself. All rooms were furnished to a high standard and we particularly enjoyed the open log fire in the living room. We were very well looked after by the owner who took great care in showing us around the cottage at the start of our stay. Overall a lovely New Year break and we would not hesitate to recommend this to other families with young children.
