  • . This delightful, character 17th-century cottage is located next to the square in the picturesque village of Westbourne, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and Chalk Cottage is one of 66 cottages mentioned in it. This lovely, quaint village has a shop and post office, a selection of pubs with dining, and a historic church, all a few yards away. Dating back to the Georgian period, this deceptively spacious home would have been the coach house which allowed the carriages to access the former Lamb Hotel. The bedroom and bathroom on the first floor would have formed an arch for the horse and carts to proceed underneath – the ground floor has since been built, in more recent years, to provide the current living/dining room and kitchen. Steeped in history, Chalk Cottage boasts features such as sash windows and exposed wooden beams in the bedroom. The living/dining room has alcoves and there is a fire surround housing an electric woodburner. A door leads from the kitchen to an enclosed, secluded courtyard, ideal for enjoying an aperitif or al fresco dining.
    There is so much to do in the area, with excellent walking, hiking and birdwatching in the South Downs National Park. The market town of Emsworth is only a 10-minute drive, with a train station, a host of cafés, pubs and restaurants, as well as a mill pond and estuary where many birds and other wildlife can be seen, and where scenic waterside walks can be enjoyed. Many attractions and National Trust homes are within easy reach, as well as Chichester with its cathedral, leisure facilities, Goodwood and Fontwell races. Also, historic Portsmouth with designer shopping outlets, historic dockyard, ferries to the Isle of Wight, Spinnaker Tower and more. Beaches including Emsworth and West Wittering are also nearby. Slightly further, visit The New Forest to the west and Arundel Castle to the east. Golf, riding, sailing walking, cycling can all be enjoyed nearby. Hot air balloon flights can be arranged with the owner. Shop, pub and restaurant 220 yards.

Chip shop, Indian and co-op within 5 mins walk. Doggy biscuits, cookies for us and milk on arrival was a lovely touch.Would definitely recommend and return again."

    "We had a really lovely stay at Chalk Cottage. We really felt at home and the cottage had everything you need for a comfy stay. It’s location is fabulous and just a few yards from all of the village’s amenities including a very nice curry house and two pubs which also provide food. The village shop and post office is also a few steps away. We will definitely be back. Carolyn and Philip Brown"

    "Lovely accommodation, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Would not hesitate to book Chalk Cottage again!"
    Juliet ‐ 7 Jul 2019
    "This cottage is well located, comfy and well equipped. We have stayed here twice and would return again. You need to be flexible with parking as you sometimes need to park up the street."
    David ‐ 25 May 2019
    "The cottage itself is well appointed and quite comfortable. It is situated in the centre of the village close to a dog friendly pub and an Indian takeaway, both 30 metres. There is a lovely bakers about 50 metres which bakes on the premises. There is a Cooperative village store directly opposite and a good chippy about 100 metres away.Although the cottage is comfy and well appointed it is small with steep stairs to the bedroom and bathroom. It must also be said that the backyard is very small so if you have anything larger than a jack russell be warned.Parking is on street and on a first come first served basis so don’t expect to park right outside."
