The Old Bakehouse is situated in a beautiful setting, surrounded by great countryside with plenty of footpaths offering fabulous rural walks. Close to many excellent pubs and within easy access of Petworth, Midhurst and Goodwood.
Lickfold lies within the South Downs area of outstanding natural beauty and between Lodsworth and Lurgashall. It's a small village in a rural area with the old market towns of Petworth and Midhurst each a 10 minute drive away (as are the polo grounds at Cowdray) whilst Goodwood is a 20 minute drive.
The property is a small cottage probably 200 years old with some fairly low beams and is all single storey. However, there are a couple of steps into the sitting room and it does have some narrow doorways making wheelchair access tricky. The house is available to rent as a self catering property and there is parking in the driveway for 3 vehicles. There are 3 actual bedrooms and a comfortable double sofa bed in the playroom, that easily becomes a fourth bedroom. It has a lovely garden with seating, tables and chairs, bbq and an enormous trampoline (please adhere to normal trampoline rules). There are a few old bikes that we are happy for people to use, enough space to kick a ball around, and a few other garden games including a table tennis table for days when it's not too windy!
Inside there is a big selection of DVDs for adults and children and a dart board. There are only a few kids games, although there is a separate kids playroom with large TV and DVD player.
Please note we will be charging higher rates during Glorious Goodwood, Festival of Speed and Revival - please enquire.
There is Wi fi throughout the house. Please help yourself to basic kitchen ingredients, though we would ask you to either replace or let us know if you finish anything. We are happy for you to bring a dog, though we would request that you let us know and that they are not allowed onto any furniture and are kept in the wooded floor areas if wet and muddy! We have a double sofa bed in the playroom that you are welcome to use, however there is an additional charge for bedding.
Interaction with guests
Either ourselves or a friend will meet you with the keys and we will arrange for collection of them at the end of your visit.
Other things to note
We will provide milk, juice and croissant for your first night, however we also have cereals and jams that you are welcome to. 1 mile up the road in Lodsworth (next door to the pub) is a brilliant award winning community shop that sells absolutely everything! We provide towels, t towels etc
Please respect our cottage both inside and out. We would request that any outside noise is limited to 10pm out of courtesy to our neighbours.
