Bramley Cottage is a charming 3 bedroom property with attractive, mature gardens in the glorious South Downs - a fabulous location for exploring West Sussex and Britain’s newest National Park! The cottage is also perfectly placed for groups attending one of the many events at Goodwood as the village lies at the foot of the Estate - the racecourse is only a mile away and it is just 5 miles to the Motor Circuit.
The pretty village of Singleton with its many traditional flint-fronted cottages is also home to the famous Weald and Downland Museum - a unique collection of 50 historic buildings which have been dismantled and rebuilt in this stunning 40 acre location. There are plenty of demonstrations and crafts on display - it really is a great way to immerse yourself in over 950 years of history.
The local countryside is quintessentially English and the surrounding hills offer plenty of scope for both walking and cycling. The chalk grasslands and the ancient woodland of the South Downs Way lie just 3 miles away on the other side of Singleton Forest. Explore the local nature reserves at Levin Down, West Dean Woods and Kingley Vale or travel a little further to the RSPB reserves at Pagham Harbour and Pulborough.
A short drive of less than 20 minutes brings you to the Georgian elegance of Chichester with its historic cathedral and plethora of pubs, restaurants, cafes and independent shops to explore. Ten more minutes and you reach the stunning Sussex coast. West Wittering’s Blue Flag beach is an inviting sandy expanse and give fabulous views over Chichester Harbour and across to the South Downs. Explore the sailing villages of Itchenor, Bosham and Dell Quay or take a nature cruise around the Harbour AONB. Alternatively discover the ‘bucket and spade’ delights of Bognor Regis, a wonderful example of the traditional seaside town.
The medieval splendour of Arundel Castle about 16 miles from the property, while the attractive market town of Midhurst and the brooding ruins of Cowdray Castle are 5 miles away.
