Definitely 5 star

"Excellent property, everything works, comfortable and quirky. It being winter we could not really take advantage of the outside space. Would hope to return in warmer weather to take enjoy long leisurely bbq's. Would recommend for family gatherings. "

Lovely spacious property

"Our group of 12 had a wonderful stay at the House on the Brooks - there was plenty of space for everyone in the communal area and in the spacious bedrooms. The house was spotless and well-stocked with essentials - and even some treats (the champagne and chocolates were a lovely touch). The only slight negatives are that just one of the four en suite bathrooms has a stand-up shower - and the location isn't the most idyllic, as it's next to a small business park and within earshot of a busy road. However, the view from the house over neighbouring fields is very peaceful. Would definitely recommend!"

Class property

"Really lovely property that has been very well furnished. We loved the four types of bedrooms and en suite facilities. The house was well maintained and we loved the welcome pack of Champagne and chocolates, particularly as we arrived on Valentine's Day! Our only quibbles were that the lounge area wasn't conducive to relaxing as a family and watching TV and the wifi was not always strong. We would stay there again and recommend it to others. "

A great place to stay with a group of friends

"We had a great stay for New Years Eve. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The house is in the middle of nowhere so I would suggest taking a car, however we did not have cars and had plenty of things to keep us occupied. The area is beautiful and perfect for a long walk! The house itself is a great size and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The bed are comfortable and all necessities are provided. Thanks!"

"The house has everything you need, quiet location, beautiful rooms and a huge space for big groups and families to enjoy. Great value for money and we'll worth the journey. We're already planning a 2nd trip"

The first, and lasting, impression of the house is that it is absolutely beautiful. The attention to detail and the thought that has gone into it is fabulous. It was so well equipped and we never needed to go beyond the beautiful surrounding fields over the weekend, which was just as we wanted. It was the perfect place for our retreat and we would love to come back.

" Wonderful weekend, birthday extravaganza! The house was perfect for our needs. Quiet, restful, four lovely rooms, peaceful views - all we wanted. Thank you "

Sue and Robin Sykes
"Amazing place! I would come back in a flash. Had so much fun and wherever you look there are interesting artefacts and things to look at. Very spectacular. "

Sharon Newman
" First of all, we would like to express our heartfelt thanks for your welcome and hospitality. The house was beautiful, unusual, intriguing, spacious and catered for our absolutely every need.

We would recommend the house to anyone who wants a luxurious, rustic escape or to be hidden from the world... or indeed to anyone who wants a special time away with friends. The main living area is so homely with masses of room and the outdoor eating space is really lovely when the sun shines.

Next time I hope to find time to paint the views and swim in the river! "

" We stayed at House on the Brooks for 2 nights. This little hideaway is perfectly located to travel around Chichester and Bognor. It is absolutely delightful, obviously built with a lot of love and thought, immaculately clean, safe and a cosy place to relax in. We felt totally at home within minutes of arriving and it was lovely to meet the owner who was only too pleased to answer any questions that we had. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather so were able to spend a lot of time in the grounds and we went for some lovely walks. We also had a disabled person in an electric wheelchair with us and the house was suitable for them to get around, inside and out. Not only is the House exactly as described, but the owner has gone out of his way to add little touches which made the difference. We wouldn’t hesitate on recommending House on the Brooks and can’t wait to return! "

" House on the Brooks is really very special! On arrival one can see immediately how much care and attention the owner has taken to build this beautiful, comfortable, artistic and luxurious house. My mother commented at soon as we entered about all the stunning fresh flowers, which was a lovely touch! The rooms have all been designed with real flair and each one has its own theme - we had great fun choosing our rooms! The Owner was there to greet us and took the time to show me how everything worked and also took us down to the river to show us some easy nearby walks. He also had some great recomendations of local pubs! and was very helpful and friendly at all times and was always available if we needed anything."

Live close to nature in this truly exceptional re-creation of a “Saxon Hall”. Four bedroom suites with four bathroom suites this stunning building is in the most beautiful rural setting within the South Downs National Park.

Framed by the South Downs, and looking onto the Rother Valley, an undisturbed valley tucked away next to the Arun Valley, the views of the ancient brookland meadows with their wild flowers, dragonflies and wetland birds is magnificent when flooded and enchanting when in bloom. The meadows here are a registered wading bird breeding ground.

The House on the Brooks is built on the same field as the Hardham Roman Camp, with the Roman Road of Stane Street passing close by. The “Saxon Hall” style designed interior with the roof timbers exposed, was built by the master craftsman, Rodney Elliot who was born in the parish, along with a team of other local craftsmen and women who have all enjoyed making this place special. There are four themed bedrooms; The Classical Room, The Arts and Crafts Room, The Nautical Room and The Indian Room. They are beautifully furnished and presented and there are televisions in each room. From the luxury of your bedroom you will enjoy an outlook most special, this truly is a wonderful setting.

Three of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, the fourth a large walk in shower room. There is the same attention to detail here on both style and themed finish in these bathrooms and the Arts and Crafts bathroom is dressed very effectively with work from the Keswick School of Industrial Art in the Lake District.

The bedrooms can be set up with single beds, or have the beds zip linked to form super king sized beds. Each bedroom can sleep up to three with an additional single bed if needed. The owner will contact you after you book to see how you would like the rooms to be set up.

We see this home as being the perfect retreat for a group of friends coming together for that special celebration. There is a team waiting to take as much care of you as you would like and we can arrange for professional catering should you want to make the occasion even more special.

The River Rother passes to the side of the house offering half a mile of private fishing and along its banks you have easy access to the start of the Rother Valley Walk and a network of footpaths that will encourage you to walk and enjoy such complete solitude. Find yourself watching cormorants, buzzards, heron, huge numbers of duck and geese all depending on the season when you choose to visit.

Hardham and beyond

The House on the Brooks falls within the boundary of the South Downs National Park. Pulborough Brooks is just a mile away in the Arun valley and has many excellent walks across the Brooks and along the banks of the River Arun offering uninterrupted views south towards the South Downs. Part of the Brooks contains one of the RSPB’s major reserves in the south and just two miles from the house. We carry a link to the RSPB reserve within ‘Places to visit’ on our website.

Also nearby is the West Sussex Golf Club which is regularly judged one of the outstanding inland courses in Britain with ‘a priceless oasis of heather, sand, heath and trees beneath the Sussex Downs’. For any golf lover, staying at Riverside is very convenient indeed.

Four miles south east in the direction of Storrington and nestling at the foot of the South Downs is Parham House, a magnificent Elizabethan home that is a real jewel. Again it is featured under ‘Places to visit’ - a half day there is time well spent.

Heading northwest from Pulborough is the historic market town of Petworth. It 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 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 and tearooms so it makes the ideal place for a stroll following a visit to Petworth House and Park.

This area of West Sussex has a variety of events that occur through the year from Goodwood racing and the Goodwood motorsport meetings, to the Arundel Festival, racing at Fontwell and polo at Cowdray. Details on all of these are found under our ‘What’s on’ heading.
