Overview

About the property

Cottage in Fittleworth, Near Pulborough, West Sussex, England - Incredibly peaceful location. Cottage set in 3/4 acre of gardens. Parking for 6 cars

This characterful cottage is set down a private lane in the beautiful Stopham estate which has been in the same family since the Norman conquest.The cottage sits in its own 3/4 acre of mature, manicured gardens and has direct access to all the public footpaths of the estate. The cottage has recently been refurbished with a brand new kitchen, bathroom and wet room whilst retaining all of its character. It has central heating throughout as well as a log fire in the living room for colder evenings. One of the 3 bedrooms is downstairs with its own wet room, making it ideal for those with less mobility.

There is parking for 6 cars and in the garden there is patio furniture as well as seating underneath the huge rhododendron bush, a large trampoline, orchard and barbecue.

It is ideally located to visit the local area. Situated 10 minutes from Petworth, 20 minutes from Arundel Castle, 25 minutes from Goodwood and 1/2 hour from West Wittering and Bosham .

The cottage has Sky TV, fibre optic broadband ,a printer and even an exercise bike!

About Jeremy Hirsch

My wife grew up in the area. We now live in London but the whole family has enjoyed many years in Sussex.

Why Jeremy Hirsch chose West Sussex

The area, but even more the private lane, is very special.

Just to walk out of the front door into the countryside never loses its appeal for us.

We love going into Petworth, either to enjoy the range of shops or have coffee and homemade chocolates in the Coco Cafe or brunch in the Hungry Guest!

The walks are amazing ..from Chanctonbury Ring or simply from our cottage door to the medieval Stopham Church

What makes this cottage unique

Being 5 minutes drive from Pulborough whilst situated in the quietest and prettiest location is a perfect combination.

Also to have a garden of that size, coupled with the fact that there are no houses opposite gives one a sense of being in the middle of nowhere.

Like home from home!

Just what we were looking for, somewhere with a secure garden for our dogs - we could let them out and know they were not going to escape!!! The house was very comfortable, plenty of room and well equipped. The bedrooms were a good size with lovely towels and bed linen. The location was perfect and the house itself in a lovely setting. Would totally recommend this property especially if you have small children and dogs.

Excellent - lovely quiet location - close to so many interesting places - great garden for kids

  • 5 of 5

Initially met up with 2 sons and their families for a family wedding over the long weekend - then we stayed on for a week's holiday; so much to do in West Sussex that we only scratched the surface. Arundel Castle so much better than expected and Parham House a real delight. Gardens at both locations were magnificent. Such a good location for exploring this area - even though we stayed over bank holiday weekend traffic not a problem as long as main towns avoided. Good food wherever we stopped especially Swan and So India.

Long weekend stay in May

  • 5 of 5

What a weekend.

Positioned in a lovely area the property was excellent with everything you could want.

Spoilt for choice for really good pub eateries with lots of things to do without travelling far.

Sitting in the beautiful garden was a joy on a sunny evening.

Will definitely stay again if visiting this part of the country in future.

The ideal getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fantastic weekend away in this property. Beautiful house, very homely with modern kitchen and bathrooms. Very clean throughout. Everything you would want in a house and all such high quality. Gardens are amazing! Had a brilliant time playing cricket and frisbee in a beautiful setting. The surrounding area has an abundance of lovely country pubs. We shall definitely be revisiting. Thank you to Jeremy for such a stress free experience.

Lovely, comfortable and happy place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for the weekend with my two adult children and their partners to celebrate my 70th birthday and we had a wonderful weekend. The house is exactly as it looks in the photos and is equipped with everything you might need. The bedrooms are all very comfortable, the sitting room and dining room are spacious and the main kitchen is perfect for culinary adventures! The sun shone and we went for lovely walks in the nearby beautiful countryside. We ate at a lovely restaurant on Saturday evening, The Star in Petworth, where we had great food and exceptional service. Altogether a perfect birthday weekend.
