  • "We had a 4 night stay at The Stables and really enjoyed every minute of it."

    The place was spotless and really nicely decorated, the bed was fantastic, really comfortable and we loved the fact it was so big.There was also a really lovely bathroom with a great sized walk in shower.The kitchen was also very well designed. The are outside was so nice too, very quiet, just the sound of the birds, we also saw rabbits , deer and a barn owl.We found that The Stables were situated in just the right area to visit all the places we wanted to see without too much of a drive out. We will definitely recommend to our family and friends and would love to come back sometime Thanks very much Jo and Neil, the welcome hamper was a really nice touch

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was lovely to meet you both and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Stables. Wonderful that you got to see the owl. We've heard it on a few occasions but never been lucky enough to see it as yet. Hope to see you both again in the future. Property Owner

  • "We’re just back from an amazing stay at The Stables."

    It was so lovely to look out onto the view of the paddocks, we had a wonderful view of the horses grazing and also the three deer that like to wander onto the property. The accommodation was of an extremely high standard, not one corner has been cut. The Stables is all on ground level providing plenty of space for two people. The superking sized bed was so comfortable giving a wonderful night’s sleep. The bathroom was very modern and the shower was exceptional. The lounge/diner were perfect with a comfy sofa and also a lovely modern kitchen that had everything you’d need to provide that home from home feeling. Our hosts Jo & Neil were so friendly and welcoming, they provided a welcome basket with all the necessities you’d need to make tea and for a light breakfast and even bottle of Prosecco. We also got to meet the resident horses which was a lovely touch being huge animal lovers. The Stables was an ideal base to explore Bosham and the surrounding areas, we had a fabulous weekend and hope to return again in the near future. We cannot recommend The Stables and of course, Jo & Neil highly enough.

    Thank you so much for your great review. It was lovely to meet you both and we're delighted you had such a fabulous stay and very much hope to see you again. Property Owner

The property

The Stables is located on an equestrian smallholding adjacent to open countryside in the village of Chidham in the heart of the beautiful Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the edge of the spectacular South Downs National Park.

On the doorstep is all the beauty of the natural harbour and its surroundings and, to the North, all the attractions of the National Park making this the perfect location for couples who love the countryside and natural coastline.

The Stables occupies the ground floor of a detached brick-built barn which has been lovingly converted to a very high standard creating a little bit of luxury in the heart of the countryside.

Character oak features and comfortable, quality furnishings make this a relaxing place to be, whilst level access, wider doorways and wet room style shower make the apartment suitable for any guests with limited mobility.

The private entrance door leads into the lounge, where full height windows allow you to relax on the sofa and take in the view, perhaps read one of the books or play one of the games provided for guests.

The west facing decking area with table and chairs provides the perfect place for alfresco meals and to take in the views over the horse paddocks towards the adjacent farm fields.

Beyond the lounge is the dining area and well-equipped open plan kitchen with modern integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer and the dining area has an oak table and chairs.

The cosy bedroom has a 6′ super-king bed which can also be adapted to two twin beds on request, the mattress is superior quality to ensure a good night’s sleep, and there is plenty of drawer space, a double wardrobe and an oak dressing table and stool, with French doors providing a view across the paddocks and leading out directly onto the decking area, with the doors having a clever lock that allows for ventilation whilst remaining totally secure.

The large shower room includes a level access wet room style shower with fixed and adjustable shower heads plus complimentary vegan, eco-friendly toiletries are provided for guests’ use.

Sitting adjacent to a separate stable block and 4 acres of open paddocks where the resident horses graze, The Stables enjoys views from the lounge, bedroom and decking across the paddocks towards the adjacent farmland of Chidham peninsula.

If you’re not travelling by car, The Stables is conveniently located only 15 minutes’ walk from Nutbourne railway station, 200 metres from the 700 Coastliner bus route and just a 1-minute cycle ride off South Coast Cycle Route 2.

Staying in the very heart of the countryside, you can watch the local wildlife and birds from the decking or see the horses grazing in the fields as the wild deer wander through.

During the Spring you may be lucky enough to hear the cuckoos and from Spring through to Autumn you may well see the resident buzzards as they swoop between the trees.

The closest local pub is just a moment’s walk away, as is the harbour edge of Bosham Channel where you can join the shoreline path and walk around Chidham peninsula enjoying spectacular views across the Bosham and Thorney channels.

Just a short drive away is the beautiful harbour village of Bosham with its sailing club and historic church, famously featured in the Bayeux Tapestry.

Further afield lies Bosham, the Goodwood Estate, the cathedral City of Chichester and the beautiful South Coast beaches of East & West Wittering, Hayling Island and Bracklesham Bay.

To the west is the historic Portsmouth and Southsea, and further to the east the flamboyant seaside town of Brighton.

The beautiful cathedral city of Chichester is only a short journey by car and offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and cafes.

All this and more awaits at The Stables.
