Great accommodation for two on a working dairy farm close to the South Downs

The Bull’s Box was once home to the resident bull on this working dairy farm in West Sussex! Today it is a beautifully converted farm building, that offers exceptional accommodation for two people within a skilfully converted courtyard of three farm buildings, all of which are now holiday cottages. This working farm is set on high ground just outside the village of West Chiltington with wonderful views over a northern panorama from the driveway of the farm.

The Bull’s Box is newly converted and has retained the original features that these classic old buildings have. The exposed roof timbers and vaulted ceiling space really open up the accommodation, and clever use of up-lighters show it off to good effect. This cottage is comprehensively equipped for two people with a large kitchen and living area and a double bedroom and shower room en-suite.

The courtyard shared with the other two holiday cottages is private and tucked away from the farm and so provides a quiet and relaxing outdoor space to relax, read and dine.

The Bull’s Box is just outside the South Downs National Park amidst beautiful scenery. It is central for much that Sussex has to offer, and there are beautiful walks over the fields to the west towards the award winning vineyards in Nutbourne, two miles away.

West Chiltington and beyond

West Chiltington lies in the lea of the South Downs. It is a hidden treasure, full of charming cottages, winding lanes and friendly shops and pubs. This sprawling village has a 12th century church, a quiet charm and like many Sussex villages provides a tranquil retreat from the pressures of modern living. All this, and only 50 miles south of London.

The attractive church of St Mary is un-restored and has a spire covered with oak shingles and a roof of Horsham Stone. Ancient paintings dating from the 12th, 13th and 14th century can be clearly seen on the walls inside the building.

The village stocks and whipping post are preserved outside the church and are believed to have been constructed in the mid 17th century. A small very interesting museum stands behind the church. West Chiltington is a village full of charming cottages, winding lanes and friendly shops and pubs. It is this unique charm that makes the village so special.

The South Downs National Park is three miles from the village, West Chiltington being approximately half way along its entire length.

The Wildbrooks on the flood plain at nearby Pulborough offers many excellent walks along the banks of the River Arun and uninterrupted views south towards the Downs. The Pulborough Wildbrooks also contains one of the RSPB’s major reserves in the south and it all falls within the National Park. We carry a link to the RSPB reserve within “Places to visit” on our website.

Three miles away on the edge of nearby Storrington and nestling at the foot of the South Downs is Parham House a magnificent Elizabethan home that is a real jewel. Again have a look at it under “Places to visit” - a half day there is time well spent.

To the west from West Chiltington 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 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. 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 Glorious Goodwood, the Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival, to the Arundel Festival, racing at Fontwell and polo at Cowdray.
