Attraction details
Owner description: Das Cottage Museum ist ein für West Sussex typisches Wohnhaus, welches so eingerichtet ist wie zur Zeit seiner ehemaligen Bewohnerin, der Näherin Mrs. Cumming (ca. 1910) und gibt so einen Einblick in das Leben in dieser Region vor hundert Jahren.

This tiny cottage is worth a visit if you are in the area - it won't take long! Many things gathered under this roof from an era long forgotten. Friendly people explain what things were used for and make your visit worthwhile.

What a lovley old cottage. It felt like Mrs Cummings was still living there. Really great that her things are being kept for people to see. How people used to live. With a toilet in the back garden. No bathroom. The sitting room has a coal fired range for cooking and heating.
A lot of work has been done to restore it . In the garden care is taken to choose plants appropriate to that time.

From the moment you walk in the door, it is the smells that hit you - 'just like my grandmother's house, 50 years ago'. And what fun to spot household items which yes, had been in grandma's house. An authentic step into the past, and definitely worth a visit.
