About Us

Located on the Chidham Peninsular within Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the 4 single storey cottages were converted from farm buildings and are run by Diana Beale, current custodian of this small family estate of 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.

We are committed to providing quality holiday accommodation enabling our guests to enjoy all this region has to offer and have been assessed 4* by Visit England.

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 and access via a wheelchair accessible path around the shore, passing our Wetland reserve for some bird watching and into our private woods.
