All you want in a holiday home.

"A beautifully presented holiday property with absolutely everything you could possibly need. All in pristine condition. The owners really take a pride in making it a home from home. So much to do in the area. We spent several hours in the Mary Rose Museum. Don't be fooled by the estimate of 2 hours in the guide book. You couldn't possibly see all of it in that time! Loved Amberley village. It is so pretty. The Pottery there is well worth a visit. Everything made by the potter on site. Lovely things at very reasonable prices. Couldn't see everything in the area in one visit so hope to be back again sometime."

Sehr hochwertige Wohnung in ruhiger Lage

"The Stables liegt in einer sehr ruhigen, l�ndlichen Seitenstra�e in Walberton. Das Objekt ist ca. 9 km vom Meer entfernt (Bognor Regis), liegt allerdings strategisch gut f�r Exkursionen nach Chichester, Arundel, die South Downs oder Portsmouth. Das Haus ist �berdurchschnittlich gut ausgestattet. Neben den �blichen Ger�ten, die man in einer Ferienwohnung erwarten darf, verf�gt The Stables beispielsweise �ber eine Gefriertruhe, einen Induktionsherd, einen offenen Kamin oder drei (!) Fernseher (in jedem Schlafzimmer ein Apparat sowie ein zus�tzlicher im Wohnzimmer). Alles ist sehr hochwertig, angefangen �ber die Fliesen im Badezimmer, den Wohnzimmersofas (sie lassen sich ausziehen) bis zu der Dekoration der einzelnen Zimmer. Das es hier sehr sauber ist, versteht sich von selbst. Auch die Form der Wohnung - sie ist wie ein �L� geschnitten - gefiel uns sehr gut: W�hrend unsere Kinder im einen Geb�udetrakt residierten, hatten wir Eltern am anderen Ende unsere Ruhe. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und standen uns mit guten Informationen zur Seite. Insgesamt haben wir haben uns sehr wohl gef�hlt und kommen gerne wieder. "

Short stay over half term

"We stayed for a few days over February half term. The Stables is well equipped, clean and comfortable. Vyvyan was a gracious host coming to introduce herself on the first day and also saying good bye on the last, but still ensuring that we had our privacy. The Stables is fully enclosed by the fence so quite safe for little ones and we enjoyed lighting up the fire every night and there was plenty of wood to hand. Highly recommend this place for a short or long stay. "

A beautifully presented holiday home

"We Enjoyed everything about The Stables holiday home. It was immaculately clean and provided everything you would need. The location is quiet and allows good access to Chichester, the South Down's and the seaside. We would recommend this property for both families and couples and we would be happy to holiday there again. "

Other Reviews

“The owners were delightful and so thoughtful, they went out of their way to make our holiday perfect. (except the weather) which they could do nothing about.”

J & N Tonks
“We have just returned home after our second stay at the Stables and have to say we had a good rest. Everything is perfect and comfortable and all the facilities are the best that your could provide. We would certainly recommend it to friends and it is always possible that we will return. The area is so lovely and we have sampled it in the autumn and again at the beginning of summer.”

D Empson
"A very well equipped , quiet , comfortable , clean bungalow with two high standard rooms with en- suite . It is central to many wonderful places to visit and a week was too short a stay to see them all."
Anonymous
“This was a very comfy, well-equipped cottage & ideally situated for visiting the South Downs & the south coast. We had a great week & would recommend The Stables to others. We would happily stay again if we were looking to holiday in that area again.”

A Guntrip
A gem of a holiday cottage. Absolutely immaculate, the furniture and fittings were all of very high quality and we immediately felt at home. The extra touches like wine, milk and biscuits on arrival were much appreciated. The owners were delightful and very welcoming. We would recommend this cottage to anyone.
J. Perry
Hospitality was top of the list for the owners of The Stables at Walberton. They welcomed us when we arrived and came to wish us well as we left. The wine and biscuits on arrival was a personal touch that made us relax so quickly. The incredibly high standard of fixtures and fittings helped us to enjoy every moment in this wonderful holiday home. An iPad docking station, hand soap by sinks, tea bags and coffee provided are the extra touches that made us feel so well looked after. Can't believe we were so fortunate to secure this booking.

A great location in Sussex! Luxury holiday accommodation for four that is perfect for Goodwood and Chichester

We often say that Sussex is such a superb county to visit since so much is on the doorstep. This is certainly the case with the Stables, a beautifully converted old stable building that is finished to an exceptional standard. Situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Walberton, it is perfect for Goodwood, Fontwell Park, Arundel, Chichester, Pagham Harbour, the coast, the South Downs and much more.

The Stables has been cleverly converted with guests’ comfort very much in mind. There is a bright and spacious central living room with exposed beams and a superb central fireplace with log burning stove that is the heart of this property. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the accommodation each having ensuite facilities. The principal bedroom is fitted with a king sized bed while the second bedroom has twin beds that can be easily moved together if required. There is underfloor heating throughout and a wetroom for both showers. The bathroom attached to the principal bedroom also has a bath.

The kitchen is modern and comprehensively equipped, fitted with the latest induction hob. The area works well having a small breakfast bar, or possibly more a social perch to sit and chat while meals are being prepared! The dining table will comfortably seat six should any friends come over for dinner.

The outside space is completely private and also secure. It combines an area for secure parking and since the Stables is within four miles of Goodwood this is very useful for anyone bringing a classic car to either the Festival of Speed or the Revival Meeting.

Walberton and beyond

Walberton is a convenient mid way spot between Arundel and Chichester. In addition to being in the perfect location for the premiere motorsport events at Goodwood each year, the Stables is also within a mile of Fontwell Park Races a unique figure of eight track and a jewel for West Sussex. Right next to Fontwell is Denmans Gardens a delightful four acre garden that is full of ideas for the keen gardener to take home with them.

The beaches at Climping and Bognor Regis are within five miles. Climping is a beautiful unspoilt length of beach of Special Scientific Interest. At its eastern end, beside the mouth of the River Arun, is the West Beach Café built by local craftsmen using materials sourced locally. It is worth a visit, the fish and chips do come highly recommended!

Further west Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve is another area of outstanding natural beauty and a place of special scientific interest. The harbour has a small entrance to the sea so remains tidal and has extensive walks that link Bognor Regis and Aldwick in the east with Siddlesham and Selsey in the west.

A short distance to the east from Walberton, Arundel is a historic market town, dominated by the symbolic castle and the rising spire of the cathedral. It offers a plethora of craft and antique shops, as well as restaurants and tearooms. It’s a great place to wander and just enjoy the hospitality on offer there.

Arundel Castle is the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk, and is set in 40 acres of sweeping grounds and gardens. The castle has been seasonally open to visitors for almost 200 years. It is one of the great treasure houses of England, and is home to priceless works of art in stunning rooms. Climbing the 131 steps to the Keep, which dates from the 11th century, to take in the views over Arundel and The South Downs is definitely worth the effort.

Five miles to the west of the Stables is Chichester, the cathedral city of Sussex. It is one of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK that has played a key role in the affairs of Sussex since at least Roman times. The city’s broad streets are packed with Listed buildings, headed by the towering presence of the cathedral. In the late spring and summer the cathedral spire is home to a family of peregrine falcons who swoop over the city at dusk

The city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls, which helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot. It is a cosmopolitan, vibrant and friendly city proudly combining two thousand years of heritage with a lively lifestyle.

Chichester is also home to the famous Festival Theatre. It is renowned for its quality of productions, as well as featuring many world premieres. We have a link to the theatre from our website under “What’s On”.
