Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The cottage is believed to date back to the late 1700's constructed of local stone with brick quoins under a pitched clay tiled roof, the rear being brick with half clay tile hanging to the upper section. The property has been the subject of sympathetic improvements in later years, yet still retains a wealth of charm and character associated with a property from this period. Adorned with wisteria and climbing roses complementing this idyllic picture postcard cottage. The ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance porch leading into a triple aspect sitting room with a wood burning stove. A family room, with a beautiful open fire, leads through into a formal dining room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units under a vast expanse of worktops. In addition there is an electric Rayburn. To each end of the kitchen there are two further rooms, a utility room with plumbing for appliances and a separate WC at one end and a boot room housing the boiler at the other. The first floor is of equal merit providing three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. In the past the property had four bedrooms, the fourth bedroom has been opened up to provide a large landing and study area.


The property is situated at the end of a no through lane, in a picturesque tranquil hamlet between Lodsworth and Tillington. Surrounded by glorious unspoilt countryside within the South Downs National Park providing miles of footpaths and bridleways for walking and riding, yet within easy reach of the mainline station at Haslemere which provides fast access to London Waterloo. The nearby towns of Midhurst and Petworth provide most everyday needs, whilst the town of Guildford in Surrey and the Cathedral city of Chichester, both with renowned theatres, are within easy reach and provide more extensive shopping and leisure facilities. The A3 provides fast access to London, the motorway network, Gatwick, Heathrow and Southampton airports.

There are excellent recreational facilities in the area, with polo at Cowdray Park, racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, golf at Cowdray Park, Pulborough and Liphook and sailing out of Chichester Harbour and other centres along the South Coast.

Petworth 4 miles, Midhurst 8 miles, Haslemere 8 miles, London 54 miles, Haslemere to London (Waterloo) about 53 minutes (distances approximate).


There are secluded gardens that wrap around the cottage, with level lawns to both the front and rear. The garden is complemented wonderful mature trees including Magnolia, Maple, Silver Birch and Walnut and well stocked herbaceous borders. There is a detached barn style garage with an electric roller shutter door. In addition there is a garden shed and composting area. The gardens provide a tranquil area for outside entertainment surrounded by stunning open countryside. In all the gardens extend to 0.334 Acre.
