Coultershaw is situated in the heart of the South Downs National Park in the Rother Valley. This rural area has a wide variety of landscapes ranging from managed farmland, open chalk grassland, woodland, and wet meadows. Very local to Willow Tree cottage there are footpaths and the River Rother to explore with a wide variety of flora and fauna to enjoy. The Coultershaw Beam Pump is close by as is Badgers a popular gastro public house. The Former railway station at Coultershaw is now converted to Bed and Breakfast with accommodation within bespoke carriages and offers cream teas. Petworth is just two miles distant.

Petworth is a picturesque market town with a good selection of shops and restaurants. Adjoining the town is Petworth House and its 600 acre deer Park, owned by the National Trust. In July, the annual music and arts festival takes place in Petworth, a popular event with something for everyone. There are numerous sporting activities available in the area, including several local golf courses, racing at Goodwood and polo at Cowdray Park.

Built in 1860, Willow Tree Cottage is a fine example of a Victorian
cottage and has the benefit of a river view from the garden.
Full of period character the property is not a listed building and
is in excellent order throughout. Access to this pale pink painted,
charming semi-detached cottage is via a wrought iron gate with
a stepping stone path leading to the front door and extremely pretty cottage garden.

A very attractive feature of this property is the segmental arched windows and doors which appear in most of the rooms. The interior is homely and one can imagine settling down by the wood burning stove in the sitting room - perfect for winter evenings. This room takes in the staircase affording a high ceiling and a good feeling of light and space.

The garden room, with half glazed door, at the far end of the house, sits adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room. It is a wonderfully versatile room. The many windows overlook the garden which in the summer is a profusion of roses. It could be used to entertain dinner guests, undertake hobbies or could equally be a work from home space. There is a walk-in storage cupboard with stable door.

Both practical and good looking the kitchen breakfast room has
a range of matching wall and base units, granite effect worktops
together with space for the all the usual appliances. There is an
ingenious wall switch which turns off the water - no more locating and turning off the stopcock, it is all done with the flick of a switch. Flooring to the working area is terracotta tiling and setting it apart, the dining area has wooden floor boards and an illuminated wall mounted displaycabinet adds a nice touch.

Upstairs the main double bedroom is to the front of the house.
This room has a built-in wardrobe and a pleasant view of the bespoke railway carriages which form part of The Old Railway Station bed and breakfast. Another bedroom, currently used as a twin room, is positioned on the back of the house as is the family bathroom which has a bath with shower over, wash basin and WC.

A particular feature is the garden, a haven for small wild birds.
The borders have been thoughtfully planted by the current owner to provide a tranquil and scented oasis. To the foot of the lawn is a decked seating area which overlooks the River Rother. It is possible with purchase of a rod licence to dangle a fishing line. Fence panels secure and denote the garden boundaries. The property has two garden sheds one with power and light. Parking spaces are available to the front of Willow Tree Cottage adjacent to the entrance gate of the property.
