This newly renovated Georgian house is on an attractive street a hop from Chichester Cathedral. Use a code to access the outside gate and let yourself in using the key safe. The smart, well-equipped kitchen is stocked with the basics – coffee, tea, milk and oil – and has a comfy armchair for those chatting to the cooks.
Eat around the old farmhouse table in the dining area, which opens out onto a small redbrick patio adorned with colourful flowers in pots. If it’s lashing down outside watch TV, read or play games in the cosy sitting room. Find a shared bathroom and bright bedrooms on the first floor: two have super kings (one en suite), and a twin on the top floor.
For a culture fix, the Chichester Festival theatre and the Georgian Pallant House Gallery are nearby. A car or bus will take you to the beach on the Witterings in under half an hour, or to the historic market towns of Arundel and Petworth. You’re close to the chalk hills and forests of the South Downs, perfect for walkers.
