Lodsworth Cottage, as the name implies is an important house located in the centre of the popular and well served South Downs village of Lodsworth.
Listed Grade II, Lodsworth Cottage has a rich history, amplified by neighbouring houses of character within the conservation area of the village. A succession of dutiful owners have defended its boundaries by retaining a substantial garage offering secure off road parking and an excellent garden of over 0.5 acres which has established trees and hedges which offer privacy and interest.
Over their tenure, the current owners have upgraded the property with a new roof, drainage and electrics and have remained faithful to the largely unaltered layout of accommodation which has, at its core, a fantastic dining hall warmed with a large woodburning stove, and drinks cupboard (this room is easily partitioned if desired, subject to consents) and a substantial drawing room with open fire and a delightful aspect over the immediate garden. An Aga serves the kitchen/breakfast room which connects with a larder, pantry cupboard, sitting room and back stairs. The back stairs are accessible from the back door which leads to an adjoining garage suitable for the storage of two cars. There is an array of WC, woodstore and utility which combines with the cottages own discrete pedestrian access to the village.
Two staircases lead to the first floor which could easily be partitioned to provide a staff flat if required. The master bedroom is accessible from both and currently enjoys the use of bedroom 5 as a dressing room which links with the master bedroom via the bathroom.
The guest bedroom has its own shower room and a lovely aspect with dramatic views over the garden to the neighbouring hamlet of River, the other side of the Lod Valley. Two further bedrooms serve the first floor with an intercommunicating door between them as well as a good sized family bathroom. Bedroom 6 is located on the second floor but also features access to a substantial unconverted loft area which currently is home to a scalextric circuit and plenty of occasional storage.
Gardens and Grounds
Outside, a decorative and well planted garden equipped with a period greenhouse and garden store leads to a more substantial private garden with views over the Lod Valley. The lower garden benefits from a summerhouse with well equipped kitchen and terrace area which lies under a delightful pergola. The current owners have landscaped a flat area fit for a marquee or goal posts.
There is a more decorative garden to the front of the house which leads to the front door and an exclusive garden access adjacent to the garage.
Lodsworth Cottage is situated in the heart of the hugely popular village of Lodsworth which, together with Lickfold and Lurgashall, forms the greatly sought after ‘Golden Triangle’. All three villages boast highly regarded public houses - The Hollist Arms, The Lickfold Inn (named Best New Pub in Good Food Guide 2016) and The Noah’s Ark. Lodsworth is also home to the award winning Lodsworth Larder which is run by the community, and provides a wide range of local produce. The village also boasts a church, recreation grounds, tennis court, croquet lawn, and a range of village societies.
