Nestled in the heart of Sussex, The Granary is a beautiful and tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Situated next to the owners period farmhouse, you are surrounded by green, giving you a real country living experience.
Carefully refurbished to a high standard, this cottage has been sympathetically designed to accentuate the building’s original purpose as a grain store. The building is over 300 years old and there are beautiful exposed oak beams throughout, giving the cottage a characterful and comfortable feel.
The kitchen and dining area, as well as a great spot to enjoy your surroundings, is fully equipped so you can self-cater effectively during your stay. The kitchen includes kettle, microwave with grill over, fridge, compartment freezer, toaster and dishwasher.
The Granary has one large double bedroom which is situated on the ground floor, and the large bathroom has a walk-in shower. Upstairs in the living room you will be wowed by the high vaulted ceiling and the stylish log burner at the end of the room. There is a large cosy sofa, perfect for snuggling down after a long day exploring the countryside and watching the large flat screen TV.
This property also comes with WIFI and parking. There is a sitting area outside where you can enjoy eating al fresco. There are easy walks directly from the property.
This property is not dog friendly, however, there is a small friendly dog on the land.
The nearest large town to you is the lovely Storrington only a few minutes’ drive away. Storrington is a buzz of local cafes, restaurants and independent stores; you can easily waste away hours in the day taking in what the local stores have to offer. Storrington Museum is well worth a look as is nearby Parham Elizabethan House and Gardens.
Nearby towns and villages worth visiting are Haslemere, Pulborough and Arundel. Filled with independent stores, restaurants, antiques shops and markets this old town really does shine out in the local area. The cobbled streets of Arundel are riddled with history not to mention the enormous Castle watching over the town and grand gothic cathedral at the top of the hill running through the high street.
If you like what you see in Arundel you will definitely want to visit The Cathedral City of Chichester. Chichester offers a vast array of high street shops and restaurants, live theatre and two cinemas. Brighton and Portsmouth are easily accessible via the excellent train routes. Here you can explore the famous Spinnaker tower, old 'Spice Island' dockyards and from there you can even make your way to the Isle of White with a ticket to Ryde, by ferry, catamaran or hovercraft!
Goodwood is also just to the south and is the venue for two of the most famous sporting events in the U.K. - the Goodwood Revival and the Goodwood Festival of Speed, attracting visitors from all over the world.
