|The Old School House is a grade II luxurious 2 bedroom cottage, near Petworth, was originally built in 1870 as a school and has since been sympathetically converted into three cottages, providing us with an elegant home from home. The south facing spacious living area looks out onto the garden and beyond to the rolling Sussex hills. Opening the French windows leads on to the patio, perfect for alfresco dining or for relaxing with a chilled glass of wine on a warm summers evening.|
Downstairs has a spacious entrance hall, which leads through to the well appointed kitchen and to the elegant, yet comfortable living/dining room. Also from the hall the stairs lead up to a large open landing, which provides access to the two bedrooms and bathroom. Bedroom 1 has a king size bed, & built in wardrobes, bedroom 2 has twin beds with built in storage, a TV and DVD player. Both offer views across the South Downs.
Guests at the Old School House also have the option to rent our beach hut at West Wittering.
The Cricketers (Local Pub): A pleasant walk through the church yard and across a field brings you out onto Duncton High Street very close to our local pub, a 16th Century coaching house called 'The Cricketers'. Here you can enjoy home cooked food and a drink either inside the pub, next to an inglenook fire or in their large delightful garden.
Local Activities & Attractions: Great country walks are right on our doorstep, with both the newly designated South Downs National Park and the Rother Valley within easy access. Alternatively there are a number of bridle paths in the area, great for horse-riding and mountain biking.
There are many local attractions, including Goodwood, Cowdray, the Chichester Festival and a great theatre in Chichester. During the summer months, there are open air concerts at Petworth House.
For the antique hunter Petworth has a large selection of antique shops and an antiques market.
There is trout fishing at Duncton Mill, with day tickets available from the 11th October.
