Holiday cottage, Strettington, West Sussex
Loved our stay at Goodwood Oak Lodge
"We had a wonderful stay. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was excellent too. A home from home and a thoroughly enjoyable stay in the beautiful countryside."
"A well equipped and comfortable lodge. A good location with easy access to the coast and villages. Although it did not bother us too much, some mention of heavy traffic noise at peak times should be made in the property description."
On the fringe of the South Downs National Park just a mile from Chichester and within three miles of Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Goodwood Oak Lodge could not be better situated for the ideal Sussex holiday. This contemporary lodge is in the quiet hamlet of Strettington just east of the city. Modern, bright and stylish it borders the open fields of the Goodwood Estate and the famous Goodwood Racecourse atop the Downs is only two miles away.
The Goodwood Oak Lodge is perfect for two people looking for a quiet and relaxing few days away yet wanting plenty to see and do that is close by. The lodge has its own small private and mature garden that is set next to the owners’ home. Its open aspect and vaulted ceilings make it really spacious coupled with the floor to ceiling windows that maximise the light. The bedroom is fitted with a king sized double bed and in addition there is a single pull out bed which could work well for a young child. Please note that a supplement will apply for the use of this bed. The lodge has an ensuite shower room off the bedroom and is heated throughout with underfloor heating.
Strettington borders the Goodwood Estate. Goodwood House home to the Earl of March is within 0.5 miles of Goodwood Oak Lodge and is set in magnificent grounds that extend onto the South Downs. The house is open to visitors during the year and we carry a link to Goodwood House under the ‘Places to Visit’ section of our website. On top of the Downs is the racecourse considered one of the finest flat courses in the world with views stretching over the Downs to the Solent.
Head east along the line of the Downs and you quickly reach Halnaker Mill. It is a disused tower mill on the top of Halnaker Hill that is clearly visible from many places around Chichester. Approach from the north and you will find a path to the mill along Stane Street, the old Roman road that links Chichester with London.
A couple of miles south west of the city you come to Chichester Harbour. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty with a plethora of wildlife that shares this delightful area with the sailing activity that abounds. The harbour is made up of a series of tidal creeks and Bosham is probably the best known of the quayside villages and offers much of interest. Bosham is always bustling and is a joy to visit. The arts and craft centre, a popular visitor attraction contains many small craft shops and the Anchor Bleu pub which is so central to the village and overlooks the creek is very popular for lunches. Itchenor and Dell Quay are similar quayside villages where it is just enjoyable to take in the activity that goes on.
