"We had a week at lovely Honeysuckle Cottage. The location close to the centre of Petworth is convenient but also very quiet. The cottage is very comfortable. It was lovely to find that not only was the kitchen well equipped but also food basics were provided and a light supper for our first evening. The owner was very helpful and easily contactable by phone/text. "

Yes this cottage enjoys the best of both worlds with views over the valley and proximity to town. That is good to hear that you found the cottage so welcoming and the owners as we know are very attentive.

Other Reviews

“Gorgeous cottage with great views and friendly owners. Petworth is a lovely village with all essentials available. Nothing to dislike!”

M Warner
“Lovely accommodation close to everything Walks from back door no need to use the car Would return visit”

Mrs Scott
“Lovely accommodation, we were made very welcome by the owners, a bottle of wine and a light lunch in the fridge. Lovely views across the valley from the patio and plenty to see locally. Petsworth House was worth a visit and the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, about 20 mins drive was a great day out.”

J Turner
“It was a lovely cottage, very cosy and comfortable . It was lovely and quiet with amazing views, but close enough to walk into Petworth.”

S. Sheppard
Honeysuckle Cottage is as advertised and even better. Furnishings were good quality and bed is very comfortable. Cottage is kept spotlessly clean and all appliances are in excellent condition. The cottage is very bright and there is a small patio and pretty garden facing South and overlooking The Shimmings. Location is perfect for walking into Petworth or to visit Petworth House and Park.
D&C Lansley
The owners went out of their way to make us welcome. Lovely people. Cannot fault anything about cottage. The furnishings were great, the first cottage to have really comfy settee, A lot of thought has gone into making their guests feel at home and little added touches like soaps and leaving tea and coffee and washing up liquid really go above and beyond what was expected!
M and J Tait
" An absolutely fabulous cottage, superb location and views. We really appreciated the complimentry bottle of wine and sandwiches on arrival. A truly relaxing and peaceful break."
Mr & Mrs Murton
" Lovely cottage overall-great attention to detail."
Mr and Mrs M Barton
" Perfect cottage in a perfect setting. We had a truly relaxing weekend. Everything was thought about within the cottage."
J Morris
" Wonderful cottage, lots of additional luxuries (we found a bottle of wine tucked in the fridge for us, very nice), beautiful surroundings, lots of nice walks, and friendly shop keepers. If you like old time British villages then you will love Petworth with its cobbled street, antiques shops, historic grounds, and information on old buildings such as the old coach house. Depending on what time of year you go the Museum Cottage looks like a good place to visit. Country pubs aren't difficult to find, and takeaways are in the village so meals out are easy. My wife and I will definitely be going back to Petworth, and more specifically to Honeysuckle Cottage."
S Thomas
" The cottage was just perfect. It was a pleasure to stay in a property where such attention to detail had been paid. The whole experience was very positive, from booking to departure. Thank you so much. We intend to return sometime soon."
Mr and Mrs Brian Walker
" Very well equiped and cozy cottage. Great Views. Petworth nice friendly town to stay in. Not too far from assorted places of interest and beaches."
Mrs Diane Blake
" The cottage was absolutely perfect for us - a real home from home, everything we could possibly have wanted."
Mrs Wendy Jefferson
" Had a lovely time thank you. Would recommend the local food shops."

A chocolate-box holiday cottage in the perfect setting next to Petworth House

Commanding views over the Shimmings Valley to the east and with Petworth House and its park situated immediately behind, Honeysuckle Cottage is in a prime location for you to enjoy the beautiful West Sussex countryside yet have the convenience of the pubs, restaurants and shops that the quaint market town of Petworth has to offer.

This is a charming one bedroom split level cottage with a pine spiral staircase that offers comfort, attention to detail and character in abundance. Patio doors from the lounge open out onto the terrace with its views over the cottage garden and Shimmings Valley beyond, perfect for an alfresco breakfast in the morning sunshine, and at the other end of the day somewhere to relax with a glass of wine after a day out and about. Upstairs the cottage has a double bedroom enjoying the same views over the valley, the perfect vista to wake up to. The bed is king sized to ensure a comfortable night's rest for two, with high quality White Company bed linen to finish it off. The adjacent bathroom is well equipped, with WC, basin and bath with hand shower attachment. The distinctive circular window adds to the charm, and a selection of locally produced Artful Teasing toiletries is provided together with a choice of lightweight waffle bath robes or fluffy towelling robes along with slippers to help you to really relax. The cottage has Wi-Fi and two i-Pod docking stations, so your entertainment needs are well catered for. The kitchen is fully equipped, so there is no need to eat out if you prefer not to. It even has a Nespresso coffee machine, for which a small selection of pods is provided. If you have a particular favourite variety please feel free to bring them with you. Honeysuckle Cottage has been consistently awarded the Visit England Gold Award for self catering accommodation, together with a Four Star rating for many years now, proof, if proof were needed, that the owners of Honeysuckle Cottage are committed to providing the very best quality of holiday cottage possible.

Petworth and beyond

This historic market town is best known as the location of the stately home Petworth House and deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown. The house and its grounds are now owned and maintained by the National Trust. The magnificent country house contains an internationally renowned art collection with numerous works by Turner. Petworth itself was immortalised in his paintings.

The town is full of quaint houses and cottages, many within their own courtyard settings. They are interspersed with antique shops, tearooms and restaurants so it makes the ideal place for a stroll following your enjoyment of Petworth House and Park.

Attractive villages surround Petworth such as Fittleworth and Byworth to the east and Lodsworth and Lurgashall to the west. Journey further and you reach the market town of Midhurst nestling next to Cowdray Park. The Cowdray Estate is most famous for its polo club particularly in June and July when the polo set meet for the Gold Cup. The Cowdray ruins are also of note since they were important early Tudor courtiers' palaces built from 1520 and form an impressive backdrop to Midhurst.

The drive south from either Petworth or Midhurst over the South Downs to Chichester is equally picturesque. Taking either road will lead you close to Goodwood about eight miles away, famous for its horseracing and more recently for the motorsport events that Lord March is so passionate about. Motor racing enthusiasts flock to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the early summer each year, and the Goodwood Revival is a huge draw every September. For those preferring horsepower, with four legs rather than four (or more) cylinders, the famous Goodwood Racecourse plays host to a number of race meetings each year, most famously Glorious Goodwood in the height of the summer. Full details of all of the Goodwood events can be found on our What's On in Sussex web pages. The South Downs all around Goodwood offer plenty of good walking opportunities and provide you with classic Downland scenery and fine views towards Chichester Cathedral and the Isle of Wight beyond.

The cathedral city of Chichester is one of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK. Chichester has played a key role in the affairs of Sussex since at least Roman times. The city's broad streets are packed with listed buildings headed by the towering presence of the cathedral, now home to a family of peregrine falcons who swoop over the city at dusk . The city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls and this helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot. There are plenty of good shops and restaurants, and if you enjoy the theatre the Chichester Festival Theatre is worth considering as the quality of productions is first class, many of them transfer to London's West End following a successful run in Chichester.

This is just a flavour - consider as well Arundel Castle home to the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk which is a 20 minute drive away, while the South Coast and its beaches are within 30 minutes.
