The accommodation is set over many different levels with two of the bedrooms on the first floor along with a family bathroom, and the third bedroom, a double with en-suite, is on a second floor level.
Rooms that can be used for storage are situated on the lower ground floor and can be accessed either from the sitting room via a wrought iron spiral staircase, or from the rear garden down stone steps and through French doors.

Comfortably furnished with a selection of sofas to sink into, along with a warming woodburner, this cottage is a lovely place to return to after a day exploring the sights and sounds of Portsmouth or the cobbled lanes and impressive Chichester Cathedral, or Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Hampshire all short distances away.
On warm summer days make the most of the extensive garden and enjoy a ball game together or dine alfresco.
