Yanks in Hampshire

"Although the security gates put us off a bit at first, we came to appreciate the sense of security within the "compound" and the peace and quiet it offered. The cottage appeared to have been the former stable for the main house, and retained its charm. The village is right at your doorstep and is lovely, and convenient, with a Landis grocer and village hardware (DIY) steps from the house, as well as a small crafts shop, a wonderful tea shop, three village pubs, an Indian restaurant, and a train station with direct service to London and Portsmouth. All this within walking distance of the cottage. The cottage was very comfortable for this American couple and our Yorkshire friend. The kitchen is small and a bit challenging for the volume of cooking we did, but we managed with a small refrigerator and a small cooker. A bonus was the private garden for our use with apple trees and one giant fig tree, actively fruiting. Our primary interest was cycling and walking, which are lovely in the area, although we did visit the docks in Portsmouth. Can't speak to indoor activities since we had dry weather all week. This was a lovely visit to the UK for these two Yanks."

We're really pleased you had an enjoyable stay at the cottage and also in the UK. Thank you for writing such a generous review. We hope we will see you back here at some point in the future.

September 2016

Deer Leap Cottage is in an outstanding location but in need of some TLC.

"The location was excellent, being only a few minutes walk from the station, giving easy access to Portsmouth and the Historic Dockyard (change at Fratton not Havant.) The local small supermarket was well stocked with prepared meals, fresh fruit and veg, and all other daily food needs. Food at local pub not great. Easy access to Chichester, Fishbourne Palace, West Dean Gardens,Uppark, Petworth, Goodwood House, and many more tourist attractions, as well as the beautiful Chichester Harbour. Good secure parking for 2 cars. The cottage was adequate for 2 couples, but both double beds were uncomfortable. One of the bedrooms was very dark and musty. In September there were cobwebs dripping from the vaulted ceilings. The cottage was always very warm and there was plenty of hot water. There were full laundry facilities, but the tumble dryer was so full of fluff it was a fire risk. As per details, there was no dishwasher, but no draining rack, scourers, etc, and we needed to clean the utensils and a greasy oven tray before using. We could have done with some dessertspoons and more crockery. There was no freezer, only a larder fridge, so not able to freeze the ice packs for our picnic bag. Despite the issues mentioned, we had an amazingly hot, sunny September week and thoroughly enjoyed the area, which was full of pleasant, friendly people. "

Calm and peaceful retreat, right on the village green

"The cottage itself is set in the grounds of the main house and faces onto the house. The private gardens made available to guests is just beautiful and we spent the sunny days enjoying this space. The cottage has been lovingly decorated with taste and to a high standard. The living and kitchen space is large and bright and welcoming. The bedrooms are large and the bathrooms are well fitted. With the two bedrooms at opposing ends of the cottage, each with their own bathroom it's perfect for two couples or family with older children. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials and things you would need for light cooking, although do note there's no freezer or dishwasher. We found the cottage needed just a little more care and attention. There was a wasps nest above the sitting room during our stay, which meant for very careful use of the space. We weren't made aware of it and there were a few close encounters! The mattresses were not to the standard expected for the price requested (?100+ per night) and should be replaced. The dryer only works if you hold the door closed. And even allowing for a cosy cottage feel, the abundance of cobwebs around lights and windows wasn't to our taste. "

Other Reviews

“The accommodation is excellent. Quiet and well presented. Owners left some goodies, Bread butter milk etc. This is always helpful and well received. The location was great. Close to a pub a shop a tea room. All you need for a real break. It's an amazing little place, and I love the name, Rowlands Castle, close enough to bigger towns, easily accessed by train if you don't want to drive. I would return without a doubt.”

Enjoy time away in this superb cottage for four right in the heart of picturesque Rowland's Castle, perfect for visiting Chichester and historic Portsmouth

One of the nicest villages on the Hampshire Sussex border and set around a pretty village green, this is a great location to explore and enjoy the South Downs, as well as placing you nicely for both Portsmouth and Chichester.

Cottage on the Green sits within the grounds of the owners' home within a private walled garden that has beautifully maintained grounds. The cottage has its own courtyard. Step out from the cottage and you are immediately on the green, with local pubs and shops on your doorstep, it is a location that has that traditional village feel.

The cottage is on one level and is superbly presented to offer very comfortable accommodation for up to four guests. The living room and kitchen occupy the central space in the accommodation and are lovely and bright. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends and both bedrooms have private shower room facilities. With a combination of French doors and roof lights, the cottage is filled with light making it feel immediately welcoming. Facing south it catches all the sunlight.

The private gardens to the side of the cottage are exclusively available for guests and offer a quiet area to simply relax.

Rowland's Castle and beyond

Rowland's Castle is set around a traditional village green and the remains of the old castle sit very close to the cottage. It borders the southern fringe of the South Downs National Park offering easy access north to the South Downs Way that passes by at Butser Hill and through the Queen Elizabeth Country Park. Both the cathedral city of Chichester and the historic dockyard at Portsmouth are 10 miles away, along with the natural harbours of Chichester and Langstone both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and popular with both wildlife enthusiasts and those with a passion for sailing.

Chichester city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls, which helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot. It is a cosmopolitan, vibrant and friendly city proudly combining two thousand years of heritage with a lively lifestyle.Chichester is also home to the famous Festival Theatre. It is renowned for its quality of productions as well as featuring many world premieres. We have a link to the theatre from our website under “What’s On”.

Head north from Chichester and Trundle Hill offers spectacular views back to the city as well as a great view over Goodwood Racecourse. The Cottage is within a 30 minute drive of all the Goodwood events that occur through the season.

Historic Portsmouth is famous as the home of HMS Victory and also more recent years the Mary Rose. . The historic dockyard sits right next to Gunwharf Quays and the Spinnaker Tower which offer spectacular views over Portsmouth and the Solent. The mainline railway station links Rowland's Castle with Portsmouth Harbour which makes a trip to Portsmouth even more accessible.
