    I stayed here for the weekend with my two adult children and their partners to celebrate my 70th birthday and we had a wonderful weekend. The house is exactly as it looks in the photos and is equipped with everything you might need. The bedrooms are all very comfortable, the sitting room and dining room are spacious and the main kitchen is perfect for culinary adventures! The sun shone and we went for lovely walks in the nearby beautiful countryside. We ate at a lovely restaurant on Saturday evening, The Star in Petworth, where we had great food and exceptional service. Altogether a perfect birthday weekend. 10 May 2017 - 18:42:00

    What a weekend. Positioned in a lovely area the property was excellent with everything you could want. Spoilt for choice for really good pub eateries with lots of things to do without travelling far. Sitting in the beautiful garden was a joy on a sunny evening. Will definitely stay again if visiting this part of the country in future. 01 June 2017 - 08:41:00

    Initially met up with 2 sons and their families for a family wedding over the long weekend - then we stayed on for a week's holiday; so much to do in West Sussex that we only scratched the surface. Arundel Castle so much better than expected and Parham House a real delight. Gardens at both locations were magnificent. Such a good location for exploring this area - even though we stayed over bank holiday weekend traffic not a problem as long as main towns avoided. Good food wherever we stopped especially Swan and So India. 03 June 2017 - 09:46:00

    Roomy 3 bedroom detached house in quiet country lane which we used as a base, for 6 of us, including 2 children 5 and 9 yr old., to visit, Chichester, a local bird sanctuary, Arundel Castle, Littlehampton for a beach day, the remains of a local Roman villa and lovely walks in the woods opposite, good pubs, the White Hart and the Swan Inn, but delightful place to stay and relax for a few days. One hour's drive from our home in Wimbledon and good trains from Victoria. Sainsbury's delivered when we arrived so we didn't have to do any shopping! Great kitchen with all appliances, large dining room, study and conservatory, meant we could spread out. 13 August 2017 - 16:28:00

    Everything was very comfortable and the countryside lovely. All the appliances worked well and my adult children loved the trampoline! The house was spacious tastefully decorated with comfortable beds plenty of towels. Easy access to multiple supermarkets and pubs and plenty to do also was very excited to catch a glimpse of a badger one night! 25 September 2017 - 12:38:00

    What a wonderful find! We chanced upon this lovely hideaway by chance and managed to book it at very short notice from the charming and helpful owners. Weve had many mediocre rentals throughout the UK Ashlyns knocks spots off most on account of three details. Firstly, the house cannot be faulted for comfort: well-appointed bedrooms upstairs with superb beds and crisp, fresh bedding. And downstairs, as well as a well-appointed kitchen with everything we needed to feed out family of four, a charming country sitting-room, well lit and an oasis of calm after a busy day exploring the local area. Secondly, the garden, even during a chilly February weekend, is lovely the trampoline a huge hit with our two children (8 and 4), likewise the nearby woods, perfect for short walks. Finally, despite its tranquil setting, the house is within striking distance of places of interest. We managed Petworth House, Arundel, West Wittering beach and a walk on the South Downs. Thankyou, Jeremy and Sally, for a restorative weekend in your lovely cottage! 25 February 2015 - 20:12:14

    Brilliant cottage. Large comfortable rooms. All equipment etc just like being at home. Decent pans in kitchen, thick sheets and towels, wood, firelighters and matches waiting to go, books and games, even a bird book and binoculars on seat next to picture window to garden. Bowl of fruit and bottle of wine waiting on arrival. A real gem. And in a beautiful part of England. 16 March 2015 - 14:16:38

    Spot on as they said in other reviews - the cottage is very cosy and very comfortably equipped with everything you need down to logs & kindling for the open fire, a real feeling of a home from home, the garden is delightful and the location, - well away & out of earshot from the small fairly quiet main road at the beginning of the lane - in a beautiful idyllic rural valley takes one back to a more peaceful age gone by! We had some lovely walks straight from the front door thru varied countryside & lovely secluded woodlands. The owner was very friendly, helpful, flexible and quick to respond. a great relaxing week. 26 March 2015 - 19:56:03

    We had a very comfortable stay at Ashlyns with our every need catered for with modern bathrooms and excellent beds. It proved to be a convenient location to access various activities, including the fabulous CASS Foundation with its monolithic Sculptures.. the gardens are lovely. 10 November 2017 - 09:02:00

    We had a great weekend visit. Weather was super cold so we loved the central heating and log fire. We cooked a lot and the cottage had everything needed for big meals and dining. 13 December 2017 - 12:20:00

    We celebrated a very happy Christmas in this lovely, comfortable, warm house. It was excellently equipped for all the cooking, eating and drinking and the sitting-room was perfect for present opening and game playing, especially with the tree and decorations kindly provided by the owner. We had three bracing walks over the weekend in the beautiful surrounding countryside - what more could be needed for a perfect festive celebration? 29 December 2017 - 10:53:00

    We absolutely loved this cottage. It is so comfortable with lots of character, space and tons of little extra's. We visited over the New Year period and spent time relaxing by the fire and playing board games. We also went for a lot of walks, mainly from the front door. There are footpaths through the woods and fields to The Swan which does a good lunch. We all enjoyed exploring by foot in all directions. Petworth is the closest town and it's lovely to wander around with lots of antique shops and cafes and there's also the NT stately home and grounds to visit there. Many other attractions are close by, but we were so comfy we hardly left the area. We all thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing countryside break in a lovely welcoming cottage - Thanks so much! 08 January 2018 - 09:38:00

    The house itself is pretty, cosy, warm and spotlessly clean. The owners have thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay comfortable, which makes this place such an easy and relaxing holiday accommodation. The area is beautiful. Peaceful and quiet but only a short drive from a supermarket in Pulborough and the lovely Petworth is 5 minute drive in the other direction, with its superb pubs , restaurants and quirky shops. Just perfect, would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. 23 October 2017 - 15:58:00

    The property is nice and good access to lots of fun places. The real fire makes it nice and relaxing 15 November 2017 - 14:58:00

    Its all about the owner. Have you ever stayed somewhere with overbearing owners, who are inflexible and controlling about what you can and can't do etc? Well these owners are a happy mix of relaxed nature but caring about their property and they genuinely want you to enjoy your time. So for me, the most important aspect is being able to be free to use the house and treat is as my own -which is exactly what happened. Needless to say, we had a very fun and relaxing time and felt truly on holiday! 04 May 2017 - 13:29:00

    Just back from a fantastic weekend away in this property. Beautiful house, very homely with modern kitchen and bathrooms. Very clean throughout. Everything you would want in a house and all such high quality. Gardens are amazing! Had a brilliant time playing cricket and frisbee in a beautiful setting. The surrounding area has an abundance of lovely country pubs. We shall definitely be revisiting. Thank you to Jeremy for such a stress free experience. 18 May 2017 - 20:39:00

    Just what we were looking for, somewhere with a secure garden for our dogs - we could let them out and know they were not going to escape!!! The house was very comfortable, plenty of room and well equipped. The bedrooms were a good size with lovely towels and bed linen. The location was perfect and the house itself in a lovely setting. Would totally recommend this property especially if you have small children and dogs. 10 July 2017 - 12:59:00

    Ein wundervolles, liebevoll eingerichtetes Cottage in traumhafter Umgebung - optimal ausgestattet und sehr gepflegt. Lange Spaziergnge starten direkt vor der Haustr, viele Ausflugsziele im direkten Umfeld (besonders Petworth, Parham, Chichester, Winchester, Arundel und vieles mehr). Schner, groer Garten, auch fr Hundebesitzer sehr gut geeignet. Absolut empfehlenswert. 04 August 2017 - 05:22:00
