A lovely little bolt hole

"This is a charming little cottage, ideal for a couple and a dog. The owners Emma and Hugo were lovely, displaying the perfect balance of interest and concern without being intrusive. Prior to our visit Emma e-mailed details of local pubs and eateries which was very helpful. I would recommend the cottage to anyone wanting a break in the beautiful West Sussex countryside. I don't think you will be disappointed."

Another great stay at Yew tree Granary

"We had another great stay at Yew Tree Granary. Our host left us a lovely bottle of wine to enjoy in the garden in the sunshine. The property was very clean as usual. We have been returning to this cottage for a few years now. We find the location great for exploring Sussex and the fact we can take our little dog along is ideal."

A short break.

"A pleasant stay, lovely countryside and walks nearby.Cottage basic and small but adequate, bedroom comfy, could do with a little attention and redecoration in places and was a little chilly in the evenings. Emma the host was friendly and welcoming. "

Short stay

"Cottage was easy to find using postcode on satnav. The bedroom, lounge and bathroom were a good size whereas the kitchen was really small, all cooking is either on a two hob stove connected to the sink or with a combination grill/microwave oven. This meant that most meals were ready meals from supermarkets, which is not our normal fare. We stayed a week during February and it was fairly cold and though there are heaters in the cottage we did need to use the movable oil filled radiator in the lounge. Bedroom was warm enough. Cottage was supplied with plenty of leaflets of things to do in the area, which was great ."

Thank you for your feedback and yes you stayed at the coldest time of the year, but we're glad that the moveable heater helped provide you with good warmth. This is a compact cottage and in particular the kitchen is limited on space and function. We do try and convey this in both our photographs and description so we're sorry that it did not quite work for you. It's in a great area though within the South Downs and we are pleased you found the leaflets useful in helping to plan your day.

Ideal location for South Downs & coast

"Had a fabulous holiday in this cute cottage and ideally situated to visit the South Downs and coast. Emma was very helpful & friendly. Would definitely consider staying there again."

Other Reviews

"We stayed for only 2 nights but had a fantastic time. Welcome was brilliant...so helpful and accommodating. Cottage was like a dolls house but so lovely. Excellent value for money. Beautiful position with excellent pubs and walks near by. Thank you both for making us all so welcome. We all loved the use of your garden when we got home from dinner on Saturday night, and Henry and I loved the space for a game of ball on Sunday morning before we left. Will definitely recommend!!! And soooooo jealous of that view!!!!"

“The property was charming, very well kept and stocked and is situated in a really beautiful area close to many places of interest. The owner, Emma, was extremely friendly, helpful and informative and we had a very relaxed and enjoyable holiday.”

A. Bullivant
"I came because I needed some time just to chill out and relax as I had been unwell. For me it was a perfect
space, small ,warm and cozy,and comfortable. I slept better than I normally do at home, and I'm sure that I will revisit."

J Peart
"Although the kitchen in the property was very small, it was very well equipped and a lot of things I had packed after past experiences were not necessary. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in that area."
Mrs H. P. F.
"Yew Tree Granary is a perfect, comfortable, relaxed little hideaway with wonderful friendly owners. The property is beautifully furnished and the description is accurate. We chose the Granary as we wanted to explore the nearby South Downs. An Ordnance Survey map is provided in the property to help plan your walks. Emma the owner also gave some great eating out suggestions as well as a lovely warm welcome. Would definitely recommend!"
N. Smith
"We had a very nice stay. The accommodation was cosy and clean with comfortable furnishings. The kitchen is tiny but functional for two people. You can cook a simple meal on the two-ring hob or use the microwave. Our host Emma was very friendly and welcoming. The digital radio was a nice touch too, something you don't often find in small holiday rentals."
T. Horgan
"This was the perfect break for my Partner and myself. It's very peaceful. Especially when you live in London!! If your looking for a little break in the beautiful countryside this is the perfect spot."
J. Berry
"Emma was a wonderful hostess and made sure we were truly welcome. The little kitchen was just right for our needs. We did appreciate being able to bring our little dog - she is an essential part of our holiday. The location in Hardham was very convenient for the South Downs, Seasides and interesting historic properties. We have no hesitation in wanting to come back! The accommodation was excellent and made no demands."
N. Posnett
"Our stay at the Granary was very cosy and our hosts very welcoming and friendly people indeed."
G. Meneaud-Lissenburg
"Relaxing stay in a peaceful cottage type property. Emma made us feel very welcome and could not do enough for us. Lovely countryside. Even the dog had a great time. Highly recommended."
M. Hall
"A comfortable cottage in a beautiful area. Lots of National Trust options nearby for 'rainy days' when the weather is not suitable for outdoor pursuits. Loved the village of Amberley and enjoyed our cycling and walking within a 20 mile radius of our accommodation."

A perfect walker's cottage within the Arun Valley and a great outlook to the South Downs

What a great little cottage for walkers. If you enjoy the countryside then you won’t be disappointed basing yourself here at Yew Tree Granary. This quaint cottage borders the River Arun next to the Pulborough Brooks. Behind it you are in the Rother Valley where the River Rother meets the Arun just a mile away at Stopham. Head either way and there are great walks right on the doorstep.

This super little cottage is within the grounds of the owners’ home. It is presented very well offering comfortable accommodation on the one level for two people and although compact it does not feel lacking in space. If you are an avid cook then you may find the kitchen a little limiting since it is fitted only with a two ring hob and a combined microwave and oven, so sufficient for light meals. On the other hand though the local pub is less than half a mile away!

The cottage has a shower room which is a good size and the bedroom with double bed has good wardrobe space. Outside there is a private patio that enjoys the most fabulous views over the Brooks towards the South Downs. A nice place to enjoy a glass of wine following a days walking!

Hardham and beyond

Yew Tree Granary falls within the boundary of the South Downs National Park. Pulborough Brooks which forms part of the Arun valley has many excellent walks both over the Brooks and along the banks of the River Arun offering uninterrupted views south towards the South Downs. Part of the Brooks contains one of the RSPB’s major reserves in the south and just two miles from the granary. We carry a link to the RSPB reserve within ‘Places to visit’ on our website.

Four miles south east towards Storrington and nestling at the foot of the South Downs is Parham House, a magnificent Elizabethan home that is a real jewel. Again it is featured under ‘Places to visit’ - a half day there is time well spent.

Heading northwest from Pulborough 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 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.
