Relaxed and rested

"From when we first arrived we knew it was going to be a great holiday. Pat was very welcoming and later on in the week Nick popped round for a friendly chat and to check everything was o.k. The cottage is beautiful with a very comfy double bed, a snug living room with a very nice wood burner which we thankfully didn't need as the weather was glorious Sitting at the breakfast table watching the birds in the garden early in the morning was a delight as well with the only other sounds being the cows and sheep in a field a few hundred yards away The main shower room was spacious as well and the little welcome pack on the kitchen table was a nice touch We didn't need to use the Aga as we ate out mainly and had cold food when we got back Would really recommend Rose Cottage either as a great base top explore Sussex or simply to relax and unwind"

A little gem

"A beautiful cottage in a lovely location. Well equipped with very high end fixtures and refurbished to an excellent standard. I have never cooked on a electric aga before but it was so easy I am now considering a purchase of one. Exceptionally clean, lovely gardens and we couldnt fault it in any way at all."

A great week in heaven

"What a week when you go some where you have never been you sometimes wonder if you booked the right place. At Rose cottage we were at home as soon as we went though the door. Everything you needed , clean and well thought out. If you are N. Trust members as we are you will be more than happy the walking is great. Plenty of maps and books in the cottage. We hire about four cottages a year and I can recommend this one. Mick C"

Fantastic cottage

"Wonderful cottage with breakfast room to enjoy morning coffee watching all the birds and cozy living room with fireplace to enjoy. Evenings. Aga was a new experience, which was nice and toasty, plus fun to cook with. Owners were very helpful, welcome package with milk, coffee, tea, and logs for the fire. Stairs are quirky, but only takes one trip up and to learn the best way to navigate. Bathroom and kitchen are top notch."

Good base for the Goodwood Revival

"I stayed with my dad, sister & my daughter as our base for the Goodwood Revival and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage has been furnished & decorated to a high standard. We loved the spacious bathroom. The garden room is an excellent addition to the cottage. It was well equipped and the owners were very helpful and friendly."

Wonderfull stay in a cosy cottage

"We stay for one week at Rose Cottage. It was a wonderfull time. The cottage is so nice and new and well-appointed. The bathroom was appointed with a fantastic shower and really spacious. The gardenroom and the open kitchen is lovely. The one thing you have to know - the kitchen and a few doors are low-ceilinged. We had a wonderfull stay and Pat and Nick Moss were very nice and helpfully to us. I?m sorry for my bad english. "

Comfortable summer holliday

"It is a very comfortable house, due to the aga burner, the fantastic bathroom and the really good beds. The owner was nice and made us feel at home immediatly. Excellent l'occitane soap. Our children liked the garden and the sofa. "

Other Reviews

“We were extremely happy and impressed by the Rose Cottage itself, the friendliness of the owners and location as well. It contributed majorly to our overall stay at the Festival of Speed in Goodwood and made it a truly posh and exclusive experience. As for communication with your company I couldn't be happier, your efficiency and patience with me was truly admirable :-) Thank you again!"

We loved the cottage and the location too. We had a lovely break and found the owners very helpful.Hope to book Rose Cottage again!
Lurcook
“A delightful little cottage to stay at. Excellent facilities. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had a wonderful relaxing visit (Sunday to Friday).”

L. Mill
“Rose Cottage is an absolutely beautiful cottage, furnished and decorated with great craftsmanship and attention to detail, in a totally peaceful setting. Pat was very welcoming and helpful, and we particularly appreciated the welcome basket with eggs from their own hens, and the Occitane toiletries in the bathroom. There are lovely walks right from the cottage door, and the Lickfold Inn down the road has fabulous (if expensive) food. Highly recommended.”

S. Kinder
"Wonderful accommodation in a wonderful spot, rented from very friendly and helpful owners. We had good weather so we went out, but in case of bad weather we still would have had a great time indoors."

Mid way between Petworth and Midhurst, this very traditional holiday cottage is superbly presented yet retains all those period features

Enjoy the scent of roses across the front every summer! This traditional country cottage has been superbly renovated, tastefully extended while keeping all those traditional features you would expect in a home of this period, such as the traditional latched door that closes off the staircase to the first floor.

Rose Cottage is in the small hamlet of Lickfold that nestles beneath Black Down, the highest point in the South Downs National Park. The cottage is next door to the owners' home and is superbly presented combining character features with modern comforts. Downstairs there is a large and bright open plan kitchen and living space that looks onto the garden beyond. The kitchen is comprehensively equipped with an electric aga and also a bread maker. It's a great social space to relax. To the front of the cottage is a snug living room with a cosy woodburning stove.

The cottage has two upstairs bedrooms accessed by a steep cottage staircase more common with buildings of this age. We therefore advise that the property is not suitable for a family with children under six years of age because of the stairs. The principal bedroom has a king sized double bed while the second bedroom is fitted with twin beds. There is also a 'Jack and Jill' cloakroom between the bedrooms. Downstairs there is a large shower room with a fabulous corner walk in shower.

The cottage has its own private garden behind to enjoy the summer days. and a small cottage garden to the front.

Lickfold and beyond

From the cottage you see the pine and heather covered slopes around Black Down which are a favourite walking spot and there are many numbers of wonderful trails and footpaths to follow. Black Down also has strong literary associations with the poet – Alfred Lord Tennyson. It was also a favourite with many well known artists including Helen Allingham.

Just a mile north from the cottage is the Lurgashall Winery set in 38 acres against Black Down Hill. The Winery commenced production in 1985 and offers regular tours and wine tasting as well as having tearooms in the award winning 17th and 19th century farm buildings that are on site.

Lickfold is just a tiny hamlet with its own pub just 200 metres from Rose Cottage at the other end of the green. The nearest villages are Lurgashall to the east, a delight, just two miles along picturesque lanes. and Lodsworth, a similar distance to the south. The village larder beside the pub is worth a visit just to see the Ben Law designed building constructed from locally sourced wood from the nearby Cowdray Estate. From there either head east towards Petworth or west towards Midhurst.

The historic market town of Petworth is best known as the location of the stately home Petworth House completed in 1696 and the deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown. The House and its grounds are now owned and maintained by the National Trust and feature the Summer Festival of musical concerts held within the park which make a perfect setting to enjoy a picnic and open air concert.

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 the house.

In Midhurst the grand Tudor ruins of Cowdray House form an imposing backdrop to Midhurst, a market town full of character and old world charm. The town is home to many fine 17th and 18th century buildings and provided the setting for many stories by past resident HG Wells. Today Midhurst is closely associated with Cowdray Park well known for the Polo held from spring onwards and in particular the Gold Cup events which are hosted each summer.
