Situation

Wellcroft is situated in a delightful elevated position on the edge of the small village of Patching which is set amidst farmland and woodland on the southern slopes of the South Downs within the National Park. The village is approached by country lanes and is noted for its period cottages and houses. Lying to the south of the property is 13th century Church of St John The Divine.

The historic town of Arundel lies 5 miles to the west and is dominated by the medieval Arundel Castle, home to the Dukes of Norfolk and their ancestors for nearly 1000 years. The town offers a wide range of amenities including a number of boutique shops, restaurants and public houses. Findon village, which also provides local facilities, is about 3.5 miles to the north east.

The property lies within the South Downs National Park and in the area are excellent sporting and recreational facilities including horse racing at Fontwell and Goodwood, motor racing and golf at Goodwood, cricket at Arundel, the West Sussex Golf club near Pulborough and sailing on the south coast. There are good road and rail communications with a main line rail service to London from Arundel and Angmering.

Outside

The property is approached by a no-through lane from which a drive rises to a large parking area to the north of the house. Adjoining the drive is a water feature with a waterfall set within a rockery.

The beautiful gardens lie principally to the south with terraces, sweeping lawns and a variety of mature flowering trees and shrubs. The property and gardens benefit from a high degree of peace and seclusion and adjoin open farmland to the west and north. Situated to the north of the house and garaging is a productive kitchen garden with greenhouse, work shops and potting shed facilities.

In all the gardens extend to about 1.7 acres.
