A charming, cosy cottage set on the edge of the South Downs National Park with the peaceful countryside on the doorstep; ideal for walkers

The Old Workshop is one of two holiday cottages set on a small working farm surrounded by wonderful Sussex countryside and within walking distance of a charming Sussex village. Cleverly converted from a former working carpentry barn, the conversion has been carried out to a high standard and the lovely vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers give the properties a unique sense of history with all the mod cons.

The cottage is completely open plan with a lounge area consisting of a sofa and coffee table, making it a perfect spot for watching the Freeview TV or making use of the WiFi. A dining table for two overlooks courtyard to the front of the cottage and there is a fully fitted kitchen area with electric hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer.

The bedroom area has a double bed and fitted wardrobes. The bathroom has a large walk in shower cubicle, basin, heated towel rail and WC.

There is a sunny outside courtyard area with seating available where you can enjoy a morning coffee and watch the comings and goings of the horses in the yard. There is also access to a shared laundry area with a washing machine and dryer available

Should you be looking for a larger property then we can also offer Churchfield Stables, which sleeps two, and is opposite to The Old Workshop. If both cottages are booked together a reduction of 10% will be applied to the rental cost outside of peak season.

West Chiltington and beyond

The Old Workshop is in the charming village of West Chiltington which 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 parish church of St Mary is just minutes from the cottage and 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 South Downs National Park is three miles from the village, West Chiltington being approximately half way along its entire length and not too far from Chanctonbury Ring..

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.
