Garden House is the end of an early Victorian Mansion. Our house and terrace are south facing. We are in the heart of the South Downs, a five minutes walk from the centre of Midhurst and an easy drive to Goodwood, Petworth and the Cowdray Park Polo. During the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival we have a two night minimum.
Our guest room is very light, comfortable and private. With a large double bed or twin beds, it has an en-suite power shower, hand basin and w.c. There are tea-making facilities and TV. There is another bedroom with a small double/large single bed sharing the family bathroom.
There is so much to do and see around here. Breathtakingly beautiful walks and rides. World class gardens like West Dean and the Chilli festival, Woolbeding (open Thursdays and Fridays), events at Goodwood, Petworth and Cowdray.
There is a reliable bus service to Chichester, Haslemere and Petersfield. All three towns have train stations. These connect with Heathrow, Gatwick and Southampton airports.
Enter through the green door in the wall by the single garage marked Garden House There is free parking on the street outside. Bikes can be locked in the garage. There is a good selection of pubs and places to eat in walking distance.
Picnics can be provided on request at an extra cost
Guests can share the use of the conservatory, terrace and garden with us and our two small dogs. There is a high chair and travel cot available.
We will be at home when we have guests. David has a book business which he runs from home. Patty is a gardener and a local representative for the National Gardens Scheme. Having travelled the world Midhurst is now our home we enjoy meeting new people.
David plays real tennis at Petworth and golf at Cowdray Park. There are stunning gardens locally like West Dean (where Patty volunteers) with its Chilli Festival and courses, Woolbeding National Trust (open Thurs & Fri), Uppark and Petworth Park.
This is a non-smoking house. We allow well- behaved dogs for a small extra charge, but no other pets. Friends of our guests are welcome downstairs, but only with our prior permission. As a b&b not a hotel we expect our guests to be out during the day.
