The South Downs is the UK's newest National Park, it stretches from Winchester in the West to Eastbourne in the East and offers over 600 square miles of pristine English countryside. It is paradise for hikers, mountain bikers, road cyclists and anyone who loves a countryside stroll.

From the South Downs National Park, it is easy to explore cosmopolitan Brighton and the county towns of Winchester, Lewes and Chichester. There are family-friendly activities galore and more picnic spots than you can shake a stick at. We love the little village of Ditchling with its two pretty churches, an award-winning museum and delightful tearooms. Further west, Arundel is packed with cute little antique shops and places to grab lunch. Those of you who like hiking and a challenge can walk the length of the park on the South Downs Way, it covers 100 miles of some of the England's finest countryside.

    "I think this is probably the best cottage we have stayed in. I always have a little niggle in each place - not enough glasses, only one frying pan, stiff towels, no soap, etc - sound petty, I know, but things that just annoy you a little bit. My biggest bugbear - nowhere to hang coats and leave shoes, especially in bad weather and especially in areas where you may well be out in the countryside getting wet and muddy. So my heart swelled at first entrance to be greeted with a huge hall, more coatpegs than you could wish for, and ample room for all our shoes and boots! Hurrah! And from then on, everything just got better. Beautiful décor and comfortable furniture - check. Spacious open plan downstairs great for kids to run around in - check. Excellent underfloor heating which meant we were toasty warm all week, unlike in other open plan cottages - check. Huge kitchen for easy mealtimes - check. Plenty of glasses and frying pans (!) - check. Welcome homemade biscuits and fresh milk - check. Beautifully neat bedrooms with loads of space - check. Super low lighting on the stairs and in the master bedroom, super for dealing with a toddler and a baby - check. Selection of toys and games to keep children entertained - check. Lovely terrace and garden - check. Friendly and helpful owner - check. Peaceful and picturesque location - check. TV channel devoted to the resident owls - check!Can't recommend it more highly, although hope this won't mean it will always be booked when I want to go!"

    "We booked S14090 as a special treat for our first anniversary and spent a very enjoyable week using it as our base for exploring. Its position is excellent, with a regular train service to London only minutes away in Petersfield, but the barn and Froxfield Green itself are extremely tranquil and restful. The Barn is well equipped and comfortable, with a lovely log burning stove which we used three times during our stay and very effective under-floor heating which I would think is very welcome in the autumn and winter months. We were able to explore many great places including Hampton Court Palace (1 hr 15 minutes away), Portsmouth Historic Dockyard (30 minutes), several National Trust properties (including Mottisfont and Uppark, the latter being only 15 minutes away), and Winchester (30 minutes). We even managed to get into London for a Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall! Jan, the owner, lives in the cottage next door and is very friendly and welcoming but very respectful of privacy - we knew she was there if we needed her, but she never interrupted our holiday. All in all an excellent experience and a cottage to be highly recommended."

    "S14156 is a delightful holiday retreat, suitable for all ages (our party ages ranged from 7 years to 71 years!). We were made to feel most welcome and it was ideally situated enabling us to explore during our holiday, with many sites and events to see and do. On damp days or when in need of a rest the house was a quiet haven, we could relax in the private garden or wallow in the well equipped rooms playing games, listening to music or watching tv. If the need for cooking arouse (seldom as there were many family friendly obs and eateries around) the kitchen was well resourced so made the cooking a little less of a chore on holiday!A great stay, was ad to leave"

    "We had a excellent time staying at Owl Cottage would highly recommend it is extremely well equipped cottage and was spotless. The homemade brownies & fresh fruit was a lovely surprise. The garden area was a sun trap for relaxing in after busy days out. My daughter aged 3 loved watching the resident Owl on the television and feeding the owners chickens each day. We visited many local attractions including Marwell Zoo, Peppa Pig World, Moors Valley Country Park, Petersfield, Southampton and the Isle of Wight really great location for exploring without too much travelling if you have impatient children."

    "We loved our week in S14090 as it was so lovely, peaceful, cosy and set in beautiful rural countryside. We enjoyed our walks from the cottage and loved being able to have a fire in the evening. The cottage has everything you could need and we very much appreciated the welcoming delicious home made mince pies, bottle of wine, milk and fruit on arrival. We would definitely stay there again. However if you are wanting WiFi this is perhaps not the place to stay...but it does force you to disconnect from social media and the internet which is perhaps not a bad thing."
