In the heart of a very diversified area with endless adventures on offer, this exquisitely appointed cottage wants for nothing - private and tranquil and lushly green. I spent nine blissful ( quiet) nights there!

We have just had a wonderful time at garden cottage. Home from home facilities. Very comfortable good night's sleep. Beautiful garden. As for Anita the owner ! What a lovely, interesting lady. So helpful, nothing too much for her if it was within her power to fulfill it. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay. The only complaint... More

We are just winding up a glorious 5 days here at the Garden Cottage in Petworth. Our host, Anita, is truly a delight, and spoiled us terribly while we were here. We wanted for nothing. The sitting area is spacious and bright, the small kitchenette ideal for preparing light meals, and may we add, well stocked with cereal, fruit, milk,... More

I stayed for a few weeks in November. The accommodation is excellent and the hospitality provided by Anita made me feel at home. I would highly recommend this place. There are many activities in the area for those new to West Sussex.

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Garden Cottage recently with our daughter. What a special place this is! Hidden away as if in a secret garden is the most welcoming B&B we've ever encountered anywhere. The accommodation and facilities are just perfect and access, even for our daughter with partial paralysis, is very straight forward. Just around... More

The cottage is set in a lovely mature and secluded garden. The sitting/dinning room is very comfortable and welcoming and has a small kitchenette off it which was exceptionally well stocked. Main bedroom is not that large but has a very comfortable bed (if perhaps a little too soft for our particular taste) and the en suite bath + shower... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Garden Cottage because it really is so lovely. The accommodation is just perfect. The breakfast is out of this world, in fact as we walked around Petworth after breakfast I felt so full and satisfied, I nearly needed a lie down! This is the best bed and breakfast I have... More

Such kindness! We arrived in Petworth unexpectedly, and when Anita was out, - but she returned our call and rushed back to prepare, and lay out the red carpet welcome which I'm sure is afforded all her guests. Unfortunately I was having some trouble walking due to a wonky hip, and having baulked at Anita rushing me to A&E I... More

If you are looking for a home from home right in the middle of beautiful historic Petworth then look no further than the Garden Cottage. Anita could not be more hospitable and the accommodation is spacious, being a self-contained unit with bedroom, living/dining room, small kitchette and bathroom. Breakfast was huge and delicious with Anita really going the extra mile.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Garden Cottage is a wonderful place to stay as it is in the centre of Petworth, with the National Trust Petworth House and Park just a 5 minute stroll away; with Arundel Castle, Goodwood House and Chichester Cathedral just 20 minutes drive away. Climping Beach is 5 minute drive beyond Arundel and we are on the National South Downs Way, surrounded by beautiful countryside in all directions. There are numerous antique shops, restaurants, a bank, pubs, boutiques, and "life style" shops in this small and ancient town (dating back to the Domesday book). Other highly recommended country pubs are within 5 minutes drive by car and most have gardens to sit in. Our local convenience store is a 2 minute walk away and open from 7am until 10pm for last-minute food shopping. The cottage is well equipped with wifi, freeview TV, Radio, hairdryer and bathrobes. For children and babies cots, highchairs, toys, potties and plastic table cloths can all be provided if required. There is a play park 3 minutes away for young children and acres of land to run in Petworth Park with trees to climb and deer to be watched from the top of the hill. Gatwick airport is a 45 minute drive and Heathrow airport is 1 hour 15 minutes away. Pulborough (West Sussex) train station for Gatwick airport and London Victoria is 8 minutes by taxi. ... more   less
