About The Owner

I have successfully run 2 holiday properties in West Sussex for 8 years. I love my work and enjoy seeing visitors return year after year. I always offer a personal touch - meeting and greeting guests, always being on the end of a phone.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Chichester

Oak lodge was built in the grounds of Oak House, mainly to provide much needed accommodation for Goodwood events. In the first year I got my first lot of guests to each event and most have been coming every year since. Good friendships have been made.

The Lodge is available throughout the year and is a great location for week end or mid week breaks or as a very well equipped self contained home has provided a longer term home for people waiting to move or securing temporary work in the area.

Everyone comments what a great location it is - 2 miles out ogf beautiful Chichester but on the edge of South Downs National Park and only 10 mins from the coast.

What makes this cottage unique

Dog friendly.

Decorated and furnished to a high standard.Proximity to Goodwood ,Chichester , Beach & South Downs National Park


Guestbook comments from the manager

Just had our 6th stay at Oak Lodge whilst attending Glorious Goodwood races and we will be back again next year! A beautiful and peaceful location with all the comforts of home. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. You even get a welcome hamper :) plenty of excellent eateries in the surrounding villages if you don't feel like cooking. We cannot recommend Oak Lodge highly enough. It is simply perfect.

Nice Lodge in a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this Lodge. But we were a little bit surprised about the noise early sunday morning because we didnt't know anything about the Goodwood Motor Circuit. Our fault. The Lodge is a great place to start all over Sussex. The hosts were very kind and our dog was welcome too. Thanks to Debbie and Tex

We really enjoyed our stay here ..... it was very spacious and comfortable and our hosts could not have been more accommodating. On arrival there was a basket of food waiting for us which was greatly appreciated. We would love the opportunity to stay here again

Very nicely kept cottage.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is a little bit rural but there are some very nice walks and the pubs where we went we're all dog friendly and very polite ,the only small point I would point out it looks like the cottage is set in a very nice garden well it is but it belongs to the main house so we didn't feel we could let our dogs run free so spent lots of time looking and walking for public footpaths .would we go again yes if it was just two people no dogs which I hope will be quite a few years from now .
