Petite in size but large in expansive views and stunning location, this cute cottage is a breath of fresh countryside air!

The Cow Hide enjoys an elevated position within a small hamlet with stunning views across the Arun valley towards Arundel Castle. With pastoral views directly in front of the cottage and easy pathways up to the South Downs this is an idyllic spot to appreciate all that the countryside has to offer.

The cottage is all on one floor with a living area perfectly proportioned for two. A comfortable sofa is positioned so you can enjoy the full expanse of the views through the bi-fold doors. There is a television and Wifi available should you be able to drag yourself away from the countryside scenery. There is a breakfast table available and a kitchenette with a full fridge and freezer compartment, toaster, kettle and microwave available for light meals but, with all of the local dining options in Arundel and in the local surrounding villages, it is unlikely you will even need this!

The delightful bedroom is accessed from the living area and is a comfortable and restful space ideal to recover from your days sightseeing. The bathroom is equipped with a shower cubicle, WC and basin.

The terrace is really everything you could want from a bolthole with panoramic views encompassing everything from the local friendly cows, the wetlands and River Arun and Arundel Castle in the distance. With outside seating available it is truly the perfect spot for a glass of wine and to enjoy a relaxing evening.

There is one parking space available in the gated driveway.

Wepham, Burpham and beyond

Wepham has an exceptional position set high above the River Arun and overlooking the historic town of Arundel. Walking further from Wepham you will find Burpham, which is the end of the trail! A delightful village with attractive period properties and a Norman church which is definitely worth a visit for the views across the South Downs alone! A feather in the cap of Burpham is their local hostelry, The George Inn, which is a delightful gastro pub and a local favourite.

Arundel itself sits between the South Downs National Park and the Sussex coastline. It is very popular for a reason as it offers so much - from Georgian and Victorian buildings to the impressive Arundel Castle which is the seat of the Duke of Norfolk and an abundance of restaurants, tearooms and boutique home and antique shops. Arundel Castle 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.

The Arundel Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust is more than 60 acres of ponds, lakes and reed beds which make it a magnet for wildlife and attracts some of the worlds most spectacular ducks, geese and swans. Why not take a river cruise to enjoy everything that this stunning stretch of river has to offer? A stop off at the Black Rabbit pub is also a must with lovely decking over the river and a chance to spot the local wildlife whilst enjoying a light lunch.

Just a short drive and you can be enjoying the delights of Climping Beach and Littlehampton's West Beach which are beautiful and unspoilt. Sometimes all you crave is a bit of space and the simple sounds of the ocean and these are quieter than most along this coastline. The local café will serve up a hot drink and food along with a warm welcome, which you can enjoy while drinking in the coastal views or watching the windsurfers and kitesurfers get pulled along by the air like puppets.

The nearby Goodwood estate is, of course, renowned for their wonderful motor sports meetings, the Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival, which boast an intoxicating mix of cars, stars and motorsport royalty. For the equine lovers amongst you, there is also Glorious Goodwood with five days of thrilling horse-racing action set against the magnificent backdrop of the rolling Sussex countryside - one of the sporting and social highlights of the flat-racing season.

You can also take advantage of the proximity of the cathedral city of Chichester with its ancient city walls and many museums and galleries. There are also plenty of good shops and restaurants and, if you enjoy the theatre, the Chichester Festival Theatre is worth booking due not only to the quality of productions but the fact many world premieres are featured here as well.

Lovely NYE weekend getaway

"We had a wonderful stay at the Cow Hide for New Year Eve. It was the perfect peaceful getaway we were expecting. The area was lovely and worth exploring, with some trails easy accessible from the cottage. The cottage itself was impeccable and nicely decorated, with all the amenities you would need. Underfloor heating was really nice, keeping our feet warm. The views from the cottage leave you in awe and feeling blissful. Our host, Caroline was great, she looked after us and was very kind, made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely come again in the summer as we didn't get to see the cows due to bad weather. Recommend this place to anyone for a nice countryside break."
