The Experience

From little Rogate you cross the river and enter the South Downs National Park. Do not be distracted by the lovely rolling landscape, keep an eye open for the Mizzards sign: in summer it will be half-hidden in the hedge! Then it’s up the bumpy lane, into the gravel drive, to find a big old farmhouse in front of you, and a converted, two-storey lambing barn: your cottage. Harriet and Julian make you feel at home the second you arrive. Enter a bright hallway with a cosy sitting room off it, freshly painted in cream, a cheerful sofa, a shiny wood floor, logs for the fire, books to keep you happy. The neat kitchen opens to an enclosed south-facing terrace, and at the top of the carpeted stair are two bedrooms, traditional and cosy. Views are of the owners’ garden graced with a small pond, a pool open in the summer months, and Harriet’s sculptures. Visit Petworth House, The Mary Rose and the Victory, Glorious Goodwood, or walk the South Downs Way. You can stock up in Rogate and enjoy a pint at the pub, or find delicious food at the Three Horseshoes in Elsted, three miles away.

A charming and comfortable cottage in a lovely setting . The owners were welcoming and helpful . It was a good base for visiting the area and we found many interesting and beautiful places to visit.

My mum and I stayed here recently and had a wonderful, peaceful weekend in the rose clad cottage. Harriet and her dog crumpet made us feel very welcome. The gardens and the surrounding countryside are heavenly with great walks, nice nearby country pubs and total tranquility. We will be back and would thoroughly recommend it, bliss! Kate and Eileen

Absolutely loved staying at Mizzards. The owners were so welcoming and helpful. The cottage was a joy, beautiful, well equipped and comfortable. The location is stunning, we couldn't wait to return to the cottage after our days out.


Mizzards is a fantastic place. It is deep in the country in a wonderfully quiet and secluded spot, yet within easy reach of some great pubs and very easy to get to from London. I was there during a particularly cold spell, but the large open fire warms the cottage pretty quickly, and Harriet and Julian very kindly brought over extra heaters which kept it very cosy. I had booked in for two weeks but ended up staying for three and was sorry to leave!

I visited Mizzards with my fiancée and we had a wonderful stay. From the secluded and quiet location to the stunning grounds (even with Autumn approaching), Mizzards is a rare find. Harriet and Julian (and even Crumpet, their impecably behaved terrier) couldn't have been welcoming or made our stay easier. The cottage is very comfortable and we had everything we needed. We will definitely return soon.

We had a great stay here. Beautiful quite place, lovely cosy cottage. We enjoyed walking and going to the local pub. Harriet and Julian were very welcoming and were very happy to give us advise on where to walk and even lent us their map. We will be telling our friends about it and hope to be back next year.
