Idyllic country retreat.


The rural village of Lodsworth is a thriving and active community of around 700 residents where there is always something going on. It is also located within the South Downs National Park with the protection that implies.
Pinecroft benefits from a delightfully tranquil and secluded location in a quiet lane less than a quarter of a mile from the village centre with its well-regarded pub The Hollist Arms.

The Lodsworth Larder is an award-winning community run village shop providing for daily needs whilst the nearby towns of Petworth and Midhurst provide a wider selection of shopping and amenities. For the full range of high street shopping, leisure and cultural amenities Chichester is ideal.

Road connections are good with the A272 providing the east-west link to the main A283 and A286 radial roads for connection to London, the airports and the national motorway network. The main line station at Haslemere offers ample parking and a fast and frequent service into London or Portsmouth.

This attractive area also benefits from a very good selection of state and private schools within easy reach. Lodsworth itself caters for a number of clubs and activities for all ages, including the recreation ground, playground,
tennis court, cricket nets and outdoor gym. Further afield, additional sporting and recreational opportunities include golf at a number of clubs in the area, racing and flying at Goodwood as well as the popular Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed meetings. In addition, the surrounding countryside offers a wealth of lovely routes for walking, riding or cycling.


Understood to date from the 1920’s, this former orchard keeper’s cottage has been sensitively and tastefully restored over the last 21 years by the current owners.
Retaining the original proportions whilst adding larger open living areas, the property now provides flexible, family accommodation over 3 floors. Pinecroft is built in the typical Sussex style of brick and tile hung elevations under a plain tiled roof. Recent improvements (2018) include the handmade bespoke kitchen, with top quality appliances (including 2 ovens) and cleverly designed storage solutions. The kitchen is part of an open plan arrangement with a generous informal dining area and comfy lounging space with wood burning stove. French doors lead onto an outdoor dining area and inviting cottage style garden. Further entertaining and relaxing space is available with a formal dining room and light filled snug with open fire.

First floor accommodation comprises four bright and spacious double bedrooms with en suite to the master and a family bathroom. Stairs to the redeveloped attic space lead to a useful study or further smaller bedroom, further office or teenage den/playroom and another bathroom. This area would also be an ideal ‘nanny’ or au pair flat.

Gardens and Grounds
Pinecroft is approached from the lane directly onto a large gravelled forecourt with space for about four cars. A rustic timber gate opens to a path leading between lawns and attractively planted borders to the front porch. The remaining grounds are to the rear of the house and comprise a generous paved terrace area that is ideally suited to summer dining. From here well-tended lawns slope gently towards the boundary where a mature yew hedge provides a high level of privacy and seclusion. The gardens are planted with an attractive collection of flower borders, shrubs and ornamental trees for year-round colour and interest.
