About Us

Located on the Chidham Peninsular, within Chichester Harbour's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the 4 single storey cottages were converted from Cobnor Estate's original farm buildings. The cottages are run by the estate that also includes a diversified farm and leisure activities.

All the cottages have a spacious open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with controllable central heating and use solar PV and water heating to reduce our impact on the environment. Check out our green credentials by downloading the PDF below.

With the South Downs National Park on the doorstep, the cities of Chichester and Portsmouth a short drive away, and the harbour within spitting distance, there is always something to see or do whatever the weather!

There is parking available within the gravelled courtyard area, and some undercover parking too.

The gardens are landscaped and planted to ensure some colour throughout the year, with bird feeders outside each cottage attracting a good variety of birds.

Our old Sussex barn provides indoor play space, with ping pong, skittles, table football and a selection of toddler toys.

Outside are acres of space and includes an outdoor play area. Access via a wheelchair is possible via a coastal path that follows the shoreline. This path passes our wetland reserve, great for bird watching during all the seasons, and then into our private woods.

We were delighted to be listed by the Telegraph as one of  "10 incredible UK cottages with moorings" and the Guardian's "10 of the best ethical holidays: reader's travel tips".
