“Great little cottage for a short stay away”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

This is a lovely little cottage. Perfect for two people (double bed). It's a studio, with seating/sleeping area combined, and a separate, large eat-in kitchen with everything you need. It also has a lovely little garden with BBQ, table and chairs and lounger chairs. It was quite chilly outside when we were there, but the cottage was lovely and warm. The owners live next door; they're very nice and on hand if you need anything. They've thought about what people really need. There was a welcome basket on arrival with everything you need for when you've just arrived - most importantly tea, milk and a little bottle of wine! Also various toiletries in the bathroom in case you've forgotten anything. Great value at the price.

“Cosey”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Arrived to a very warm welcome from Carol. There was a lovely Welcome Pack on the table and added touches such as Dog Towels and Chews, toiletries and flowers.. The annex is small but very well equipped. It was so warm and welcoming we did not want to leave. The garden was private and secure. The location was gorgeous and a real treat. It was near to Chichester and other major tourist spots but tucked away and very quiet. We would certainly recommend it to anyone and wish Carol and Jasper all the best with their new venture, Bluebell Shepherds Hut which was absolutely brilliant.

“Perfect mid-week break”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My partner and I stayed here for two nights last week for a relaxing break. We were delighted when we arrived, the grins and pleasantries continued for the entirety of our stay.

We were greeted with a hamper of goodies that we were most grateful for. The cottage itself was beautiful, quaint, cosy, warm, welcoming and every detail had been thought of - initially appeared the coffee machine required a type rating to operate, alas home written instructions were to hand, quick and easy - thank you :)

It has been beautifully decorated to give an ambience of your own front room away from home, just what we needed. The location is great, and a handy info guide quickly informed us of a handful of local pubs, places to eat and things to do - we took full advantage of this!

Overall we had a fantastic couple of days staying in this wonderful part of the country, thank you Carol and Jasper, Elm Cottage is a perfect getaway! We'll be visiting again

“The perfect festive break”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We've recently arrived back from a 3 day break at Elm cottage and it was wonderful. The location was perfect, close to a number of walks and local amenities such as shops and pubs. The cottage was clean and well maintain, Carole and Jasper were so welcoming to us. On arrival we received a hamper with lots of goodies, these were gratefully received- especially the bone for our dog Wooster!

We'd 100% recommend visiting here, we're already looking at dates for the forth-coming year.

“Fabulous place to stay and a wonderful area to visit”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Carol and Jasper were very welcoming but did not intrude on us at all. The cottage is incredibly well stocked....you will want for nothing. Comfortable and very clean it had a great atmosphere and just the right amount of space to sprawl and relax. The lovely garden was fully enclosed and safe for our dogs which was really appreciated. A fantastic base to use to access the surrounding area...coast, countryside, historic towns are all within easy reach.
Highly recommended but we have ensured we have already booked our stay next year in case any readers of this review decide to steal the same week.

“Beautiful cottage - We will return!”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015
2
people found this review helpful

We have just spent a week at Elm Cottage, and enjoyed it so much that we are already making plans to return.
The attractive cottage is attached to the owners beautiful 15th century thatched house, but you have total privacy & your own secluded garden, which is a real suntrap in summer if you chose not to venture out. You also have your own private car parking space on the gravel driveway right next to the cottage.
The cottage itself is quite quirky, with the comfy double bed in the lounge area, a separate kitchen & dining area, with the shower & toilet next to this. It is spotlessly clean & well equipped & we chose to dine in or barbeque most evenings.
There is a good selection of recent DVD’s and games, and maps & guides of the local area.
Carol and Jasper are a very warm and friendly couple and were always willing to offer advice on the local pubs, shopping or suggestions for day trips.
In summary - A beautiful cottage in a great location..We will return!

“Excellent Cottage”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Wonderful hospitality from Carol, Jasper & family, but not intrusive. Loved this bijoux cottage & gorgeous garden. A welcome basket with milk, butter, bread, jam, biscuits, olives and eggs from the resident hens, also a bottle of iced Prosecco. A good base for events at Goodwood, we stayed for Festival of Speed, less than a mile up the road to the entrance & avoiding the horrendous traffic jams.
Must not forget all the animals, Milo the cat, Pedro the parrot, Salli the Jack Russell, and the latest edition Bella the Lab puppy. Various hens & cockerel, they enjoy tucking into your left overs (no meat Products) Felt very much at home here, sad to leave.
