Country cottage sleeps 4/6

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Village cottage in the South Downs near the sea

This cottage is located in the village of Slindon between Chichester and Arundel in the South Downs.

Macaulay Cottage sleeps up to 6 guests and has private parking for one car. There is a small living room opening onto a family kitchen which in turn opens onto a paved garden area with tables and chairs. There is a utility room for washing and drying and ground floor outside toilet.

On the first floor is a double bedroom which looks out over the pretty street and a bunk bedroom with full size single beds and family bathroom. On the second floor is a wonderfully bright and spacious master bedroom.

Well behaved dogs are welcome with permission but are not allowed on the furniture or upstairs. There is a fixed fee of £20 per dog for your stay.

The village of Slindon is set in the heart of the South Downs and there are spectacular walks right from the door. The village has an excellent community shop and cafe and a small pottery shop.

Please note that payment via the Owners Direct site can be made by debit or credit card but if you would like to book direct I take bank transfers from UK bank accounts. If you would prefer to do this please give me a ring or email me with your full name and address to prepare the direct booking paperwork (this also saves you the 6% handling fee charged by Owners Direct).

The nearest town is Arundel: a tiny market town 49 miles from London near the sea on the South Coast of England.

Arundel Castle, which regularly hosts exciting jousting tournaments and days of historical interest for all the family, is a wonderful place to visit with tours around the castle including beautiful walled gardens. There is a museum by the main entrance to the Castle and the imposing Arundel Cathedral to visit.

Whether you enjoy a gentle stroll or are a seasoned hiker there are breath-taking walks through Arundel Park which begin at the top the hill in town and go on for miles over the South Downs.

At Swanbourne Lake, Mill Lane, you can hire rowing boats or visit the Arundel Wetland Centre which has a multitude of bird wildlife www.wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/arundel. There is also mini golf, bowling and tennis in Mill Road near the Castle main gates. If you enjoy swimming the Lido is on Queen Street or for horse riding Arundel Riding Centre is in Park Place. You can take a leisurely boat trip from the bridge in Mill Lane in Arundel Centre or just sit in one of the cafes overlooking the water and watch the world go by.

Arundel has some wonderful festivals including the vibrant Arundel Festival and Art Trail in August and the romantic Arundel by Candlelight in December.

Arundel is very small and intimate: you don’t even need to get in the car as nowhere in town is further than about 10 minutes walk! There are fantastic antique shops all over town and many restaurants, cafes and one-off boutiques.

If you are looking for a little culture in the areaPetworth Park is home to the National Trust’s finest art collection and a vast deerpark landscaped by Capability Brown. There are Roman villas at Bignor and Fishbourne or the Weald & Downland Outdoor Museum which has historic houses and buildings from the 13th Century to Victorian times for you to explore. For the more mechanically minded Amberley Working Museum is a great step back in time.

Goodwood is a huge draw to the area and their special events include Glorious Goodwood, The Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival. Fontwell Racecourse is even closer to Arundel town for regular jump race meetings.

For afternoon/evening entertainment Chichester Festival Theatre and the Minerva Theatre has a wealth of highly acclaimed plays. In Portsmouth there is a huge historic dockyard where you can go aboard old warships and ships dating back to 16th Century. From Portsmouth you can also take a hovercraft over to the Isle of Wight. For a great day out shopping and to soak up the atmosphere Brighton is a large and vibrant town.

There are many beaches in the area if you are looking for a seaside break - the closest is Clymping approximately 10 minutes away by car and there is also West Beach, Littlehampton and Middleton to be visited. Most of the beaches in this area are part sand part stony but if you prefer miles of white sandy beach and sand dunes you can head up to West Wittering.

Suited us fine

Accommodation suited us well for a family of five plus small dog. Well positioned in a very pretty village and easy access to centres like Arundel and Chichester. We had a great time

Lovely spacious yet cosy property.

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what we were looking for and was just like the pictures in the listing. It was nicely furnished and felt roomy but cosy. The outside patio space was lovely as we had really good weather so we used this area a lot. We would definitely recommend the property to friends and family and we would definitely consider staying there again.
