Great place to stay for a couple, well equipped and beautifully clean, the owner has thought of everything that you might need and there are excellent country gastro pubs and a cafe within walking distance if you cant be bothered to cook.
We were taking part in a craft fair at Westdean College nearby, so Matchbox stable could not have been more convenient for us.
In addition to that, this is a a very beautiful part of the world between Chichester and Midhurst with some world class historic and cultural attractions to visit. To name a few: The Wield and Downland open air museum, Cass sculpture park, Westdean Gardens, Classical Petworth House, Elizabethan Parham House, Roman mosaics at Bignor and Kingly Vale nature reserve with its ancient yew trees. Goodwood is just around the corner and it turns out that Matchbox Stable was once in fact stabling for a horse named Matchbox that won the Sussex Stakes in 1894.
The South Downs are simply stunning so I highly recommend a visit we had a very enjoyable stay.
Absolutely great value. This lovely little cottage has everything you could possibly ask for. Great location with several lovely walks of different lengths on your doorstep. Margaret has thought of everything and we immediately felt at home from the moment we opened the door. Two great pubs within walking distance that serve really decent food at not outrageous prices. We sincerely hope to return for a longer stay. Thank you!
Matchbox Stable Cottage was welcoming, clean, warm and cosy. It had everything you need for a quiet, restful holiday. It also had WiFi, with good connection, although I tried to stay off-line as much as possible. Margaret, the cottage manager, is helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for visiting the West Sussex countryside and coastline. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay. Thank you.
