Holiday cottage, Lyminster, West Sussex
"Very friendly host but still felt private. The cottage is small and cosy but had all we needed. Lots of places to explore within a short driving distance."
"Excellent location and met our needs perfectly. Clean and tidy property with hosts that couldn't do enough."
This is not a cottage but a small studio room with no outside space.
"Although everything was provided as stated I was disappointed by the whole experience. It is very close to a busy noisy road. The decor is dated and cramped. It was adequate for one person but certainly tight for two!"
We are sorry Grooms Cottage was not to your liking. A studio cottage is just one room with separate bathroom facilities. The owners' gardens that are immediately outside are there for you to enjoy.
"I had another excellent stay at Grooms cottage. Great location. Dora, the owner, was very helpful. Would definitely stay there again."
Lovely Studio Cottage
"The Cottage, although small, it was perfectly laid out and had everything would could have asked for. The owner was very pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. Thoroughly pleasant stay and weather was excellent also!!!!"
"This is a small studio cottage which is cosy and welcoming set in the grounds of a large house. The parking directly outside is useful. The hostess is lovely and very helpful. The road noise is contained through having double glazed windows and the property has a bath which was good for me. The only thing that wasn't so good was that the internet was very poor and I did need this to contact my nephew and nieces whom I had come to see. Overall though a good place to stay."
A very homely stay
"We stayed at this cottage with our 3 month old and as new parents, we were a bit hesitant to stay in a cottage instead of a hotel. We never regretted our decision. The cottage is very close to all attractions, shops and has ample parking. Although so close to the main house, it offered good privacy and comfort. Mrs. R was very welcoming and supported all our needs in the best way possible. Will definitely come back to stay again :-)"
"Dora Regan couldn't have been more helpful with lovely flowers to greet us and a spotless accommodation with lots of little extras so very kind we had a an excellent stay and highly recommended. "
I stayed for 9 nights whilst working in the area.
"The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Cottage was ideal for my needs. I would definitely stay there again."
"We had never stayed in a 'studio' before, but were pleasantly surprised. The fold away bed was a great idea to make use of the space and was very comfortable. The accommodation was really clean and the owner was welcoming"
Grooms Cottage is in a delightful setting within the grounds of the owners' country home. Just two miles from Littlehampton and Climping beaches, great stretches of coastline to walk, and with the historic town of Arundel and its castle less than two miles to the north this cottage is in a very good setting for a convenient break away.
Although only a studio cottage there is good space here when the bed is lowered. The kitchen and dining area is nicely separated from the main living and sleeping area and there is the addition of a bathroom with a shower attachment above the bath rather than a shower room, something you do not often find in a studio cottage.
The grounds of the owners' home are extensive and guests are invited to enjoy the gardens in front of the cottage.
Please note that the cost of heating and electricity is not included - meter readings will be taken before and after your stay.
Lyminster is a small village immediately to the north of Littlehampton and within two miles of historic Arundel. The cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy so much within Sussex offering an easy drive to Chichester to the west and Worthing and Brighton to the east. As we have mentioned the Sussex beaches are also close by.
Arundel only two miles away is a historic market town dominated by the symbolic castle and the rising spire of the cathedral. The view as you approach Arundel from Grooms Cottage is impressive. It offers a variety of craft and antique shops as well as restaurants and tearooms. It’s a great place to visit and enjoy its hospitality.
Arundel Castle is the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk and is set in 40 acres of sweeping grounds and gardens. The castle has been seasonally open to visitors for nearly 200 years. It is one of the great treasure houses of England and is home to priceless works of art in stunning rooms. Climbing the 131 steps to the Keep which dates from the 11th century to take in the views over Arundel and the South Downs is definitely worth the effort.
The River Arun winds its way around the town and is a magnet for wildlife. With more than 60 acres of ponds, lakes and reed beds, Arundel Wetland Trust attracts some of the world’s most spectacular ducks, geese and swans. The best way to enjoy the river is on a river cruise stopping off at the Black Rabbit pub or proceeding further north where the river hugs the scarp wooded slope at the foot of the Downs before reaching Amberley.
Climping Beach and Littlehampton’s West Beach are within a ten minute drive. This is a beautiful unspoilt length of beach of Special Scientific Interest and at the eastern end beside the mouth of the River Arun is the West Beach Café built by local craftsmen using materials sourced locally. It is worth a visit, the fish and chips come highly recommended!
