Holiday cottage, Petworth, West Sussex
"Very good high quality apartment in great mid town location. We enjoyed it. Just a suggestion, quite small, you need to supply a non slip bath mat to avoid accidents."
Ideal location in Petworth
"St Mary's is a beautiful and comfortable apartment situated immediately opposite the National Trust Petworth House and a few minutes walk from the town centre. The property is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The owner made herself available to us by giving her mobile phone number but after letting us in to the apartment left us to it. This property I feel is quite expensive compared to some we've stayed in (which has included houses with gardens and parking). There is no parking available here but we were able to pull up outside the front door to unload our bags and then parked in the main town car park a few minutes walk away and cheap parking fees. It can be a bit difficult to identify the front door (between two shops) as there is no name or number on it but the owner had issued instructions for finding it... might be helpful to have the name on the door. The apartment is well equipped and includes lovely linen and towels... no hand towels though which would have been good for hair wrapping and for use in the kitchen. In summary this is a very lovely apartment in a perfect location for exploring Petworth... a lovely deli and a Coop supermarket within a few minutes walk... a nice pub with lovely garden (The Angel) is nearby and Petworth House and parkland literally across the road. Would definitely stay again if visiting Petworth in the future."
"A very well presented property and the owner was most welcoming. Very well positioned for enjoying Petworth and the surrounding area. "
Beautiful place to stay.
"St Mary's cottage was a home away from home. We loved the quirkiness of it - the fact that when the washing machine went into a spin, the whole flat shook, made us think we were taking off. Also loved the uneven floors - going down hill to the bathroom and things rolling off the chest of drawers as the floors were so uneven. Beautifully clean, although we had to wash their towels during our stay and ask for the linen to be changed after a week. Only downfall was the fact you had to risk life and limb trying to load or unload the car as there is no parking outside, the front door is right on a major highway. We also had to park in the village square if there was rom, but had to ensure we didn't stay there too long otherwise we could have risked getting a parking ticket.. "
"What a lovely cosy apartment , a real home from home! After exploring the South Downs and surrounding areas, it was so lovely to return to beautiful Petworth, and in particular st Mary's . We could not have asked for better accommodation ."

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.
Petworth is full of quaint houses and cottages, many within their own courtyard settings. They are interspersed with antique shops, pubs and restaurants, so it makes the ideal place for a stroll at any time during your stay.
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.
