Property code: 80539

This cosy cottage is ideally suited for walkers and couples wanting to explore the abundance of historic towns and Sussex coastline, just a short distance away.

A true walkers paradise in the heart of the South Downs National Park, this charming cottage is perfectly appointed for two guests and one small / medium dog. Located on the grounds of the owner’s home, this lovingly presented cottage offers an ever-comfortable base for two weary walkers and their faithful friend. Explore both countryside and the nearby coastline by day, heading home to put your feet (or paws) up in the cosy lounge or furnished outdoor space on an evening.

 

This single storey property has been updated with a neutral décor to offer a wonderfully bright and cheerful space to stay. On arrival, pay attention to the hot and cold outdoor taps outside, a valuable pitstop for cleaning off muddy paws and walking boots. Hang coats up in the handy porch area whilst your canine companion makes a beeline for the electric wood burning effect stove, a cosy spot for drying off and snoozing. A separate washing machine is available for you to throw in muddy towels and dog coats leaving you free to sink into a cushy armchair and flick through the TV, resting and recharging for another long day of walkies ahead.

 

Head out from your doorstep to enjoy walks in the South Downs National Park, finding the vast rural space just moments from home. Let your pup lead the way to the local town of Arundel (7.5 miles), enjoying a waterside walk along the River Arun and stopping off for a well-earnt pint or bite to eat in a welcoming local. You’ll find the coastal towns of Worthing (4 miles) and Brighton (13.5 miles) nearby and well worth a visit, as well as the dog-friendly pebbled shores of Goring Beach just 3 miles away.

The cottage was just a short walk from the local micro pub which also made you feel welcome and they allowed dogs as well. In the cottage there was loads of leaflets telling you were to go. We used the dRead moreog walking book for the local area which was great. I would use this cottage again in a heart beat. Made to feel really welcome. Hide

Would certainly recommend this cottage. It was our first stay at a dog friendly cottage and it was such a relaxing week. All the equipment was there and in good working order, and also lovely views of Worthing and the sea from the garden. Not only was the cottage really comfy, Worthing itself needs at least a week's stay to appreciate the town. TheRead more owners Chris and Ian were very welcoming and helpful with their suggestions of car parking and dog walks. Just such a lovely week there. Hide

I can say that it is absolutely what you see is what you get. Very well appointed and comfortable in an excellent location next to fields with a footpath and a view across Worthing to the sea. The owners, living adjacent to the let, are contactable should there be any issues/help needed. In addition to the interior, there is a sun trap conservatoryRead more and your own garden area with patio and umbrella, perfect for this weather. I would consider Downs Gate for any future let should this arise. Hide
