An idyllic 3 bedroom cottage in the heart of the South Down National Park, with incredible views over the Sussex Weald. Coopers Cottage is a beautifully decorated and wonderfully comfortable converted 18th century farm building, with its own small private garden and stunning views. It is ideal for walking in historic Petworth Park and Ebernoe Nature Reserve, visiting Petworth House, award-wining local pubs and shops, Goodwood Festival of Speed, polo at Cowdray and is great for cyclists.

The space

This charming cottage is surrounded by countryside, ancient woodlands and truly magnificent views. It is ideal as a romantic hideaway for two, a family holiday home for 6, or a stylish getaway for friends. Coopers Cottage is a 18th century farm building that has been carefully restored and reconfigured into the perfect holiday cottage. The cottage has been stylishly and elegantly decorated, and has been designed to give you a truly comfortable stay. You have your own parking area for cars and bikes, and a small fenced private garden with a table and chairs, with a short brick path up to the front door. The double height sitting room has old stone walls and original beams. There are two sofas with beautiful silk Ikat cushions and a shearling throw to cuddle up with, as you sit and relax, or enjoy the view. There is a collection of books, binoculars, games, sky TV and Wifi. The modern kitchen is light and airy, with a large farmhouse table and chairs. The Master Bedroom has a King sized French Sleigh bed and an en suite bathroom with a roll top bath. There is a double bedroom with a Queen sized brass bed and a good sized twin bedroom, which share a family shower room. The beds are made up with crisp white bed linen and warm bed throws, with smart fluffy towels.

The views from the kitchen, sitting room, master bedroom and bathroom are simply stunning...miles across the Sussex Weald, which is breath taking and uplifting, even on a chilly February day! The view changes throughout the year, in Autumn the colours can rival New England and in Spring the woods are full of bluebells. You will find a well-positioned table and chairs in the garden, overlooking the view, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee, or a glass of wine in the evening! From here you can watch buzzards and kites soaring across the sky and at certain times of the year, you can hear nightingales in the surrounding woods.

Guest access

Coopers Cottage is accessed up the farm drive, past the host's house, with your own parking outside the cottage garden. There is a brick path up to the front door.

Interaction with guests

We will interact as little or often as the guests would like and to ensure that they have everything they need.

Other things to note

The kitchen has an electric oven, an electric hob, a fridge and a washing machine, with a table large enough to sit 6 in comfort. There is no dishwasher or tumble dryer (a clothes dryer is available). The master en suite bathroom has a bath with a handheld shower and the Family shower room has a shower cubicle. The bedrooms, the family shower room and the kitchen are all accessed from the hall. The sitting room is accessed down a short staircase off the kitchen. All of the rooms are on the ground floor. There is central heating throughout. We would ask you to bring your own food, drinks and toiletries. The cottage is on a farm and at times of the year it can get muddy! We would recommend that you bring wellies! We have a tennis court which can be used only by prior arrangement. Please bring trainers, your own rackets and balls if you have arranged to play. We have a herd of pedigree Sussex cattle and South Down sheep, a dog and a farm cat. Please respect the animals and always shut gates and keep children supervised. We would kindly ask you to respect that the host's garden is solely for their family's use.

If you love the British countryside, a 100% authentic cottage live with all details and a very good taste when it comes to furnitures, and accessories, this place will be perfect! It is super tidy, and you feel comfortable right away! Petra was a very welcoming host, and right there when we had any questions. We hope we will come again soon!

Fantastic accommodation in an equally beautiful setting located in the heart of rural West Sussex. Great pubs and walks on the doorstep.. We won't hesitate to return.

I stayed at Petra's during Goodwood Revival, which was a perfect a "base camp", close to the track and also close to other attractions in the areas (such as Petworth house). There are a number of great pubs close by; while Petra was always available to give tips and recommendations. The building itself was spacious and perfect for a small group with a cozy open living room. The Petworth area in itself is very beautiful and the view from Petra's house was lovely – the mornings were wonderful with the sun slowly rising over the hilly and green landscape. Would love to stay here again when I'll get back for Goodwood Festival of Speed or Revival meeting next year.

Petra's place is second to none! Stunning location with gorgeous views and simply beautiful cottage (and incredibly comfortable with every need catered for - love love loved the deep bath!). The beds were like sleeping on clouds, the decor lovely, and our girls adored the wide outside space. Breakfasts outside with a panoramic view of Sussex. Bliss. And what can I say about Petra and family? They were some of the warmest, most welcoming people we have ever met. It was a stay for our wedding and Petra put herself out to accommodate and support us, they were so thoughtful. It really made our wedding the most relaxed and joyous occasion! We would definitely love to stay again - if you're lucky enough to stay too you will see what we mean. More than 5 stars!

Very comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting. We were six adults and had plenty of space for a long weekend. The cottage is well equipped for cooking and relaxing. We enjoyed sitting outside (when the sun was out!), a game of tennis and meeting Pud the friendly Labrador. Petra was a great host who answered all of our questions and provided lots of useful information on the local area. We would definitely like to stay again if in the area.
