We are a mature couple who travel extensively, staying in a wide range of hotels, villas, apartments, guest houses etc. This Victorian house, with just two guest bedrooms, is in our opinion exceptional, with very convivial and welcoming hosts in Phil and Sandra. We were greeted with tea,coffee and cake served in the large and comfortable guest lounge.....and a glass of sherry in the bedroom! The room was the larger of the two, with a very comfortable king size bed. The bed linen was top quality, and the towels were the softest,fluffiest imaginable. Breakfasts were excellent, with lots of choices. The village has two pubs a very short stroll away, by the huge village green, both offering high standard pub grub. The village shop/post office is opposite. We stayed two nights over the weekend of the Goodwood Festival of Speed (we were in the area for a friend's birthday party in Billingshurst) and took advantage of a deal which included a huge top rate picnic hamper for lunch after the first night. Petworth house and grounds provided the perfect venue for al fresco dining. There are lots of other pretty villages and towns nearby, and the coast is within easy reach. Altogether, a memorable experience and I am sure we will be back.
