This property enjoys a beautiful location within the conservation area of Catherington, on the edge of the South Downs National Park, which is home to extensive heathlands, forests, farmland and historical sites, as well as many dog friendly pubs. Set in a peaceful spot and backing onto the 32 acre Catherington Down, a site of special scientific interest, here you are surrounded by beautiful countryside and picture perfect villages including Hambledon, East Meon, Droxford and Emsworth (all within 8 miles). The amenities of Petersfield (9 miles), Portsmouth (10.5 miles), Chichester (14.5 miles), the steam railway of The Watercress Line (16 miles), Winchester (19.5 miles) and Southampton (24 miles) are within easy reach. Many attractions including Goodwood Race Circuit, Butser Ancient Farm, Fort Nelson, the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Gunwharf Quays, the Weald and Downland Museum and National Trust properties are also within 16 miles. The cottage is located in the grounds of the owner s spacious country home, but with privacy assured as it is entirely separate with its own entrance door. This converted Victorian former stable building was fully refurbished in 2022, while keeping its period character. Once inside you will find an open plan living space for two people to relax and dine in comfort, and there is a spacious wet room style shower and WC behind a sliding oak barn door. The lounge area is comfortable and welcoming, with Smart TV, environmentally friendly bioethanol wood burner and window seat overlooking the private meadow and beyond to the South Downs National Park. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Heading upstairs via the reclaimed Victorian cast iron circular staircase you will find a super king size bed (which can also be arranged as a twin on request) set into the eaves. Settle into 500 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding and hypoallergenic duvets for the most comfortable sleep. The bedroom also features antique chests of drawers for storage, a dressing table and stool, a velvet armchair in a reading nook, and a stunning, free standing roll top bath positioned to enjoy the wonderful countryside views and the stars through the three enormous roof windows. These make the bedroom light filled and airy, but blackout blinds will ensure cosiness and good sleep. In support of local business owners, you will find toiletries, welcome goodies and handicrafts featured within in the property. Adjacent to the property is a gate into the guests' private enclosed wildflower meadow and access to 5 acres of pastureland. Here you can sit on the bench and watch the world go by. The cottage has an off road parking space for one car.
