Holiday cottage, North Mundham, West Sussex
"This is a nice property let down by poor maintenance.When we arrived one of the bedrooms was not made up and there was a mattress on the floor making it look very unsightly.The toilet flush in the downstairs bedroom was not working properly and the shower in this room was constantly dripping.The kitchen area needs some attention with a loose and delaminated door and some of the chairs in the lounge need cleaning. The owners were very nice and apologetic but we felt these problems should have been addressed prior to our arrival. I think this property could be top class but the owners need to keep on top of the place to keep up standards. "
We are sorry for the confusion on your arrival regarding how the beds were to be made up and apologise that it appeared unsightly. There had been a mis communication with the housekeeper on the bed configuration. The issue with the toilet and shower has been resolved. We are aware of a few issues with the decor, through a busy season it is sometimes not so easy to fully keep on top of these, however the cottage will be fully refreshed over the winter in readiness for next year.
"Our second stay - great location for the coast and inland to the South Downs. Very comfortable and well equipped. "
Nice place to visit with lovely swimmingpool
"A nice quiet place to visit with a friendley host. The house in itself is lovely. It lies near wonderfull places to visit and not to far from the sea, about 15 min drive. The swimmingpool was nice and warm, but spend a lot of time cleaning because it lies near trees. It didn't bother us and we saw it as a good morningexcersise. The downsides were that the kitchen wasn't clean (spiderwebs, plates, pans, cups, rubbers of refrigirator, cupboards, some doors didn't properly close which we adjusted with a screwdriver etc.) and that you could feel the spirals through the matresses. In the end the house was good, but it needs proper cleaning and new matresses."
An architect designed cottage constructed with thought and imagination, this is a great place for four or five guests to really relax with excellent space around them in a wonderfully bright environment.
This desirable cottage has double opening doors from its vaulted living room onto a terrace and outdoor heated swimming pool, available between the months of May and September. Facing west it is a perfect sun trap and a leisurely and restful location. Guests also enjoy shared use of a tennis court with North Mundham House Studio. The studio is just across from the cottage and can combine nicely to offer accommodation for up to eight in total. Renting the two together can be perfect for a gathering of friends or a couple of families.
North Mundham House Cottage has two bedrooms set at opposite ends of the accommodation. Both can be configured as either a double with a king sized bed, or the beds can be split to form two small single beds 2' 6" wide which are recommended as best suited to children. The downstairs bedroom has an ensuite shower room while the second bedroom up a half flight of stairs has use of a shower room on the ground floor. The second bedroom also has a third 2' 6" small single bed that can be made available for family use.
The kitchen is comprehensively equipped and combines with an open dining room to make a great social space. Separated by a couple of steps that lead up to the vaulted living room these two rooms make for a really spacious living area. Outside the cottage does share the pool with the studio and enjoys some beautiful and peaceful grounds within the owners’ home.
The North Mundham House Cottage is perfect for both Chichester and Goodwood events being just two miles outside the city centre. Located to the south east it is three miles north of Pagham Harbour and also close by to Chichester Harbour.
This part of the coastline is a haven for unusual birds and wildlife with Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve and Chichester Harbour both being areas of outstanding natural beauty. If you are feeling energetic the walk south to Pagham offers wonderful countryside views and much tranquility.
Pagham Harbour is an internationally important site for nature conservation while Chichester Harbour also combines its wildlife attractions with sailing centres such as Itchenor, Bosham, Dell Quay and Emsworth. Between these harbours there are beaches at Selsey and the Witterings, the latter offering unrivalled views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight.
Chichester the cathedral city of Sussex. It has played a key role in the affairs of Sussex since at least Roman times. The city has broad streets that are packed with listed buildings headed by the towering presence of the cathedral.
The city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls, which helps to make Chichester 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 by 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. For the film buff the cinema complex and nearby restaurants to the south of the city also make for an enjoyable evening out.
Across Sussex there is always much to see and do, a lot is so easily accessible from here so staying at North Mundham House Cottage gives the best of both; beaches close by and an easy springboard back inland to explore the South Downs or for visiting the very popular Goodwood events.
