Fontwell is a convenient mid way spot between Arundel and Chichester. In addition to being in the perfect location for the premiere motorsport events at Goodwood each year, Littledown Barn is just a mile from Fontwell Park Races a unique figure of eight track and a jewel for West Sussex.

The National Trust village of Slindon is just two miles from the cottage and is the largest traditional estate on the South Downs. With over 25 miles of public rights of way, there are plenty of walks or cycle paths to suit all ages and abilities. From hazel-shaded lanes and neatly cultivated fields to woodland and hedgerows, every season brings a new delight to the walks. There are countless places and excuses to stop and stare including views of the Isle of Wight, Chichester Cathedral & Halnaker Windmill.

A short distance to the east of Fontwell lies Arundel, a historic market town dominated by the symbolic castle and the rising spire of the cathedral. It offers a plethora of craft and antique shops as well as restaurants and tea rooms. It's a great place to wander and just enjoy the streets lined with Georgian and Victorian buildings. Arundel Castle is the seat of the Duke 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. The 11th Century Keep has amazing views over Arundel, the South Downs and towards the Sussex coast. There are 131 steps to climb in order to get to the top, and it's well worth the effort.

Chichester, the cathedral city of Sussex, is a twenty minute drive away and is a great destination for a day trip as the city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls, making it 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. A trip to the Chichester Festival Theatre close to the centre is worth considering since it is famous for the quality of theatre production, many of which premiere here before moving on to the London theatre scene.

The beaches at Climping and Bognor Regis are just a twenty minute drive from Littledown Barn. Climping is a beautiful unspoilt length of beach of Special Scientific Interest. At its eastern end, beside the mouth of the River Arun, is the West Beach Cafe; built by local craftsmen using materials sourced locally. It is worth a visit, the fish and chips do come highly recommended!

"Great little property that was not very little. Whilst only set up for two, with just the one bedroom, there was plenty of room for us and it felt almost spacious. Very tastefully fitted out with decent quality furniture and an excellent bed. Pippa was a delightful host and made us very welcome. Location good in a lovely part of the country. We had a great week. "

A very relaxing Autumn break

"We received a warm welcome from Pippa when we arrived . Littledown Barn was a very relaxing place to stay - quiet and a beautifully comfortable bed. The many extras provided were greatly appreciated - including eggs and bacon in the fridge, croissants and jam, gin and pre chilled cans of tonic ( not forgetting a lemon!) . Very well placed for visiting Chichester and Arundel."
