  • "We had a fabulous stay at Filbert Pod."

    The owner Pauline and her husband were very welcoming and left initial hamper package for us. The hot tub was lovely and although the farm is on the edge of the village(shops within easy walking distance- Coop, pharmacy, butchers and chippy!) you would think you were out in the countryside. We saw lots of rabbits and even fox cubs. Would highly recommend

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you were able to enjoy the peace and quiet of our little oasis whilst being able to easily access the shops , beach and South Downs . Property Owner

    We were seriously impressed by the cleanliness of the property when we arrived. Everything looked unused! Pauline and Paul were brilliant hosts, quickly fixing the WiFi connection when we couldn't access it. They were extremely helpful and attentive but didn't interfere with our stay. The hot tub was an added bonus too and we used it every day - even in the rain! Would highly recommend staying here and we would love to come back.

    Filbert pod was really lovely with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. There were lots of thoughtful little extras too including a cold bottle of fizz waiting for us. The hot tub was incredible and totally private. We enjoyed walks on the beach and visited local pubs. The spit and sawdust pub in Burnham looks a bit shabby and we weren’t going to bother but glad we did. It was particularly welcoming and we had a lovely hour of playing board games there and chatting with the friendly locals (we didn’t eat there so not sure about the food). We met the lovely Pauline who was very friendly and gave us lots of tips on where to go. Would highly recommend. If I could change one thing, it would be for a more secure fence to make it easier to keep our dog in. She could easily get under the fence and we didn’t want her to bother the horses (although it does state clearly that the fence isn’t completely dog secure it would make for a more relaxing stay). Despite this, we highly recommend and would love to come back one day.

    Thank you for your great feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and explored the local villages ! Although as you say it is not possible to make the fence totally dog secure , we have taken your comments on board and have provided some extra measures to secure around the gate , which hopefully will help for future guests .

  • "Our stay at Filbert Pod was exceptional, the pod is comfortable, clean, and well laid out."

    We used the hot tub every night during our stay, and this made our short break even more relaxing. The site is well placed to allow access to many places of interest in the surrounding area, it is also quiet and secluded, so if privacy is a factor that is to be considered when booking a place to stay in the area you need look no further than Filbert Pod. Pauline, our host met us on our arrival and was kind and considerate. A welcome pack was included in the pod which added to the personal touches that made an enormous difference to our stay. We would highly recommend Filbert Pod and will be staying here again in the future.

    We were pleasantly surprised how big it was, home from home comfort. They had furnished it with everything you need. Nice and quiet area, only horses for neighbours . We used the hot tub as soon as we arrived and continued to use throughout our stay.

    The hosts were very attentive keeping the hot tub well maintained during my stay and Pauline sent me a welcome message upon my arrival and also checked later in the week if I needed fresh towels or anything else . Lovely bottle of bubbly and milk in the fridge when I arrived and some homemade goodies. The lights around the hot tub made for a perfect way to end the day. I don't drive and had no issues getting about as although the pods are in a rural setting there is a bus stop only five minutes away where you can get to Littlehampton in only 11 minutes and frequent services to Chichester and Bognor. I would definitely recommend as a place to relax and unwind and the property is maintained to a high standard.

  • "The pod was very clean, well designed and well equipped."

    There were lots of thoughtful extras provided, including homemade gin, Prosecco, coffee bags, biscuits, milk jam etc. Thank you for these, they were much appreciated. The key safe system was very convenient and worked well on arrival and departure. The bed could do with a fitted sheet, as the plasticised mattress protector made it slippy, meaning that the sheet came loose easily. The restricted access either side of the bed then made it difficult to remake the bed regularly. We weren’t 100% certain, but there may have been a leak in the bathroom, as water kept pooling on the floor around the base of the toilet. We tried to eliminate various sources such as drying towels and swimming costumes, but it still kept happening. It was extremely wet weather during our stay, which may not have helped. The hot tub was very private and not overlooked, which was lovely. Unfortunately owing to the wet and windy weather, we only used it once. We also couldn’t locate the controls to make the jets work, but we should have read the instructions before climbing in! However, maybe a sign on the back wall of the pod itself indicating what to press might help future clueless users like ourselves! The Sykes Cottages listing should make it clearer that there are three pods near to each other on the same site. The other two pods were luckily vacant when we stayed, but we would have felt encroached upon if they had been let whilst we were staying. We also had imagined a rather more remote and picturesque setting on the farm, instead of being next door to a riding corral and manure pile within a fairly compact site and a town setting, which made for some unpleasant smells. However, these were minor concerns during our stay given that the other pods were vacant. But for future reference would be an important consideration.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you encountered any problems during your stay. We always communicate with our guests and had we known that you had any queries , we would have been more than happy to rectify these issues immediately. The property , a former dairy farm to the original manor house, has a 16 century listed dove cote and is located on a site of just under five acres, surrounded by arable fields with distant views of the south downs and yet within a village location with easy access to the sea ,local towns and tourist attractions. We are sorry that you didn’t notice the photographs of our two horses in the listings which are out in the field in the daytime and stabled at night. The manure heap is located next to the car park , at the front of the property and is a considerable distance away from the pod and is clearly out of view. However , we appreciate your concerns and are pleased that in spite of these and the weather ,you managed to enjoy your short stay . Property Owner

The property

Nestled in a scenic countryside location overlooking fields of horses, yet just three miles from a beach, is this high-end pod, Filbert Pod.

This studio-style open-plan pod is a wonderful choice for couples eager to enjoy the wonders of West Sussex and escape normality for a little while.

Enter the property via your own private decking and step into the modest but amply-equipped living space; settle down on the sofa and create a fun-filled itinerary for your trip, before gathering at the dining table and enjoying a home-cooked meal prepared in the kitchen.

Why not close the day in your private, outdoor hot tub?

De-stress among the bubbles and stargaze in a secluded spot, sitting next to the filbert nut tree and adjacent to a 15th-century, listed dovecote.

As night rolls in, tuck yourself up in the double bed to catch your rest, before awakening with a refreshing shower.

Admire the idyllic splendour that surrounds the pod with a refreshing beverage on the patio, whilst you contemplate where to visit next.

Filbert Pod is a truly inviting home for you and your partner.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1088826, 111080, together sleeping up to 6 guests.

The Old Dairy Pods

These three timber pods enjoy a fabulous location within a lovely plot of land in the rural village of Yapton. Presented to a lovely standard with a private patio area and off-road parking spaces, these little homes are an ideal escape for couples looking for a break from normality. Internally, the pods are designed in an open-plan studio layout with a kitchen and a romantic dining area, so you can enjoy home-cooked meals when you’re not dining at a local restaurant. Wash away the day in the en-suite shower room before getting comfortable in the double bed and dreaming about the next adventure. Catch the last of the summer sun as you enjoy a refreshing beverage from the patio furniture while your four-legged friend stretches their legs. The South Downs National Park is an excellent space for walking, cycling and exploring, with chalk cliffs that stretch for 260 square miles. Head into the historical market town of Arundel, home to a medieval castle and quaint antique stores, here you can enjoy a hearty meal at a rustic pub and meander around the charming streets. The Roman city of Chichester is also within easy reach, hosting a beautiful Cathedral, as well as Goodwood motor circuit and racing for a thrilling day out. Settled between Arundel and Chichester is the spectacular grounds of Goodwood Racecourse, so why not get dressed up to the nines for a luxurious day out? Explore all these wonders for yourself, with a stay at these heart-warming Sussex pods.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

ARUNDEL, WEST SUSSEX

Worthing 8 miles; Goodwood 8 miles; Chichester 10 miles

A popular tourist destination for couples visiting Sussex, Arundel is a historic and picturesque market town. It sits just outside the South Downs National Park with the River Arun winding through it. The town is known for its thriving events calendar with independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, cafes, delightful drinking spots and great attractions. Leisure pursuits include walking across the South Downs to canoeing, boating or cycling; there is something for everyone in Arundel! Arundel Castle is open to the public from April to October, whilst Arundel Cathedral stands majestically over the town and is open every day. This beautiful building is well worth a visit, but be ready for the steep climb up the hill and along cobbled streets. Within easy reach is the rural village of Yapton, another historic location once thriving with smugglers. Within the village is St Mary’s Church, built around 1180 AD, along with local shops, pubs and a bespoke coffee shop all within walking distance. Climping Beach is a nearby, romantic and quiet pebble beach with an expanse of sand at low tide, perfect for windsurfing and dog walking. Less than an hour's drive away you'll find the cathedral city of Chichester, Brighton and the historic Portsmouth. Arundel is surrounded by diverse landscapes for the best of Sussex countryside and coast.
