Newtimber Holiday Cottages - Orchard
“Hide away in the grounds of a 17th-century moated house in the South Downs National Park” - AA Inspector
HASSOCKS, WEST SUSSEX
Our Inspector's view
Located in the grounds of Newtimber Place, a beautiful 17th-century moated house within the South Downs National Park, the cottages have ample parking and bedrooms on the ground floor. The heating is underfloor and is provided by a heat pump taking the heat from the nearby field. Some of the electric comes from solar panels in a field (not visible from the cottage). There are a number of walks from the cottages, which are only 7 miles from the popular city of Brighton and Hove. There is a riding school and golf courses nearby and the nearest public swimming pool is a 15-minute drive away.

About the area
Discover West Sussex
Divided from East Sussex back in 1888, West Sussex is so typically English that to walk through its landscape will feel like a walk through the whole country. Within its boundaries lies a wide variety of landscape and coastal scenery, but it is the spacious and open South Downs with which the county is most closely associated.
In terms of walking, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Studying the map reveals a multitude of routes – many of them to be found within the boundaries of the South Downs National Park – and an assortment of scenic long-distance trails leading towards distant horizons; all of them offer a perfect way to get to the heart of ‘Sussex by the sea,’ as it has long been known. If you enjoy cycling with the salty tang of the sea for company, try the ride between Chichester and West Wittering. You can vary the return journey by taking the Itchenor ferry to Bosham.
West Sussex is renowned for its many pretty towns, of course. Notably, there is Arundel, littered with period buildings and dominated by the castle, the family home of the Duke of Norfolk, that dates back nearly 1,000 years.
