Newly Restored Sunny Cottage With All Mod Cons

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Beautiful contemporary cottage overlooking courtyard with large walnut tree.Private and peaceful, and plenty of parking.

The cottage is situated in the tiny hamlet of Blendworth in the South Downs National Park, between Horndean and Rowlands Castle. It is newly restored and fully equipped for self-catering. The vaulted living spaces gives it a stunning wow factor! We leave a hamper of basics and fresh flowers to welcome our guests and get them started. It has its own terrace with fragrant herb-filled raised borders.and faces a charming sunny courtyard with a walnut tree and a vine-clad pergola with a large table and chairs for alfresco dining.

About the Owner

Sally and Richard have lived in the farmhouse for nearly 30 years. Now retired, we have just converted this old foaling box into an enchanting holiday cottage. We look forward to welcoming people to this beautiful part of Hampshire so they can discover for themselves how wonderful it is!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“This was a great place for the four of us to stay! Beforehand, Sally had been very helpful in making sure our stay was going to be well organised and helped us with arrangements for our dog whilst we were out for one of the the days. She found a local dog walker for a small fee. She helped us with local knowledge so that we could organise our itinerary and get the most of our visit. The house was immaculate when we arrived and there were plenty of little touches to make sure we felt welcome. She had gone to a lot of trouble to make sure everything was clean and just right. The welcome food basket of provisions was highly appreciated. Beds were very comfortable and furniture in the lounge cosy. Sally lives on site and made sure she was available if we needed help. The extensive grounds are for the use of guests as well and the local setting is beautiful. We really enjoyed our short stay and would have no hesitation going back. Thank you Sally!”

Fabulous little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely find. The cottage is even lovelier than the photos, if that's possible, and provided plenty of space for the four of us. Amenities, decor and design all excellent - everything you can think of is provided. Sally and Richard were extremely hospitable and welcoming. The cottage has a lovely patio for dining al fresco, and the welcome basket and goodies were simply overflowing. We would definitely recommend this to our friends. Lots to do nearby and very close to great pubs, New Forest, and the sea. Thank you!

This beautiful cottage was an absolute joy to stay in for a log weekend with our baby and another couple of friends.

The cottage is so tastefully decorated, immaculate and the attention to detail is the best I have seen. From an array of board games, to all the utensils you could need in the kitchen, everything has been thought of to ensure this feels like a home from home.

Sally and her family were very welcoming, as were her lovely dogs, and the neighbours peacocks! and the welcome hamper was the icing on the cake!

Cannot recommend highly enough!

We very much hope you'll make the journey down south again to explore some of the other terrific places and activities we have here in Hampshire/West Sussex. Look forward to seeing you all again one day! .

Facilities

From the Owner

You could spend a cosy winter weekend walking and curled up reading by the fire, or in the summer you could explore local beaches and try watersports. You could play golf at one of half a dozen spectacular courses. You could bring your paints and find some stunning subject matter in the landscape, or you could go birdwatching in Pagham. You could check out the local historical sites, or visit modern art galleries and sculpture parks in Chichester and Winchester. There is so much to do locally, that it is difficult to list it all here. We have created a 'house book' which is full of ideas of places to go, and things to do. There are lots of local pubs and restaurants if you don't want to cook!
