Hello prospective guests. THANK YOU for stopping by. I look forward to your stay at Kingley Vale House.

This glorious house has a fascinating history, built by French prisoners of war in 1790 from flint gathered in the local fields.

I am often away so let the house in its entirety - I will not be there other than to welcome you perhaps.

Since I bought the house seven years ago I've been resurrecting it from neglect. There are still improvements to be made but that's where AirBnB comes in!

הנכס
Kingley Vale House is situated between the villages of East Ashling and West Stoke, and close to Lavant and Funtington.

The house sleeps 8+, and taken with my other property within the garden sleeps at least 12.

Please take care to let me know how many are staying as the booking price will alter. If you’ve guests popping in for a night or two call me for advice!

Here is the link to the Kinglet which can sleep up to 5 depending on your arrangements:

Chichester is three miles away, as is Goodwood, internationally renowned for exceptional motorsport ( the Festival of Speed) horse racing, especially the Qatar Festival in August, and Goodwood Revival in September, amongst many other events.

West Wittering is twenty minutes away and sports some of the nicest beaches England can offer. The sun almost always seems to shine there and I can guide you to outstanding restaurants and little-known routes to the beach so you can avoid the A27 traffic!

This 18th Century house was built as two identical cottages, combined some years ago. I bought Kingley Vale House in 2014 and put my skills in interior design and project management to use ( I have a business doing the same for private and developer clients ). The house needed a lot of work and extending to provide a decent family room and kitchen.

It's featured in national magazines so if it looks familiar, perhaps it is!

'KVH' (as I call it) used to mark the western boundary of the Goodwood estate and is built in the same manner and materials as Goodwood House, with a huge amount of care by the French prisoners of war. The galleting flints in the walls, and square-knapped window surrounds are something to be marvelled at and are seldom recreated today.

So I have a lovely light glazed entrance porch leading to three places: out to the garden, into my lovely huge kitchen / sitting room, and to the original part of the house which includes the dining and drawing rooms, the snug, office and the first floor where the bedrooms and bathrooms are.

The garden is a work in progress, like all good gardens. My priorities are scent, hardiness and plants that can cope with the proximity to the sea (only two miles as the crow flies) and the woods. Beyond the garden is a field which was scrubby woodland but is now grassed and great for playing on the huge swing in the oak tree, running around or relaxing and leads to the neighbouring woods where you can walk and soak up the peace and quiet, the stunning bluebells and spot deer, foxes, squirrels and, high in the sky, the soaring buzzards.

The ground floor is pretty much how I would like it to be; the first floor is gorgeous but I am hoping at the end of 2020 ( with the help of you wonderful AirBnB folks) to be able to refit two more bathrooms and redecorate one of the double bedrooms. There are lots of other improvements and updates I would like to make, and I value your post-visit comments which inform the upgrades I will be making.

I'm passionate about garden design as well as interiors so I'm improving and planting all the time to make an idyllic home-from-home in the woods. I look forward to introducing you to Kingley Vale House.

אזורים נגישים לאורחים
Everything! I will not be at KVH except to welcome you if I can.

Kitchen with dining area, sofa, television and four pairs of French doors to the garden. I have a full size Aga, larder fridge, and Miele dishwasher here. There's an oak island where I prepare food and you're welcome to cook and enjoy my extensive range of equipment. On request I am happy to stock the fridge for you with the goodies from local and artisan producers.

Next to the kitchen is the downstairs loo with a vanity area, and the larder where I have my huge American fridge freezer and all my dry goods, bakeware, Sodastream, Nutribullet and my cookbooks. All the essentials!

The hallway leads to the

Boot Room or Utility Room where you can wash and dry your clothes and where I plate up and prepare for dinner parties. It has a dishwasher too and lots of space for hanging up coats. It has a separate door to the outside so it's a great way to enter the house if you've been out for a walk.

Dining Room, with a beautiful handmade table and chairs, a drinks cupboard and knockout designer lighting. It's such a beautiful and atmospheric room. I can host and cook dinner parties here for you by arrangement.

Drawing Room, with a George Smith velvet sofa, beautiful antique armchairs and a gorgeous open fire with plenty of logs from my wood to keep you cosy in the winter months. It's also got my lovely piano so that those with skills can tinkle the ivories. I'm a singer so it makes me very happy to have such a beautiful piece in here.

This leads to my study, with lots of interesting books, and to the snug, where children often prefer to cosy up if the adults are chatting or watching something boring in the kitchen !

I've central heating throughout and underfloor heating in the kitchen and entrance.

Upstairs I have four lovely bedrooms:

The main bedroom has a huge Superking bed, with gorgeous bedlinen and throws, bedside lighting, handmade shutters, a small sofa and fitted wardrobes.

It shares a small bathroom with the neighbouring double room which faces the garden and has fitted wardrobes.

The next bedroom is a double, with fitted wardrobes, its own brand new bathroom and a huge and fabulous shower.

The last bedroom has a good king-sized bed, and its own small shower room.

Kingley Vale House is set on its own in gorgeous native woodland, and is surrounded by a lovely mature garden.

I have a huge swing but PLEASE do not use it in case someone gets hurt. Thank you.

As this is an old house, there are odd quirky door handles; I'll explain the quirks when I introduce you so you don't get stuck!

My renovation is a work in progress and I'm so blessed that you are considering a stay in my house so that I can make it even better for your repeat visits!

Chichester, West Sussex, בריטניה

Goodwood ! If you are coming for Revival or the Festival of Speed the traffic and parking can be, well, busy. But it's worth it. Go! Amazing!!! It's internationally known as a venue for historic car racing.

Outside the motor circuit the Goodwood Estate is also famous for horse racing - Glorious Goodwood particularly, its two golf courses and the health club and spa. There are two lovely restaurants too and much to explore, including the incredible Cass Sculpture Park.

I'm also so lucky to be at the foot of Kingley Vale, a National Nature Reserve. It's absolutely beautiful. Please visit if you're up for a climb and the most staggering views of the South Downs and the coast.

The wonderful city of Chichester is only about three miles away. It boasts an incredible Cathedral and the very famous Chichester Festival Theatre, where all the best plays preview before they hit the West End!

The shopping in Chichester is swish and there are many very lovely restaurants.

Outside the city and near to Kingley Vale House are a range of really special pubs which are well known for their cooking. Check out The Good Food Guide : the Richmond Arms in West Ashling is of particular note.

The village of East Ashling is a short walk away and has a superb pub - the Horse and Groom. There's also a reliable bus service in the village to Chichester.

The walking is incredible locally and you can literally set out from the back door. I can lend wellies ...try coming in April or May to see the staggering carpet of bluebells.

I could go on - please ask for more information on your favourite pastimes locally. I've also left more comprehensive information in the Visitors' Book.

Hello. I'm Sarah, an interior designer....46. I have two lovely teenage girls. I'm from North Norfolk but live in West Sussex and work between Sussex, the Home Counties and London mostly. I split my time between my family in Norfolk, my boyfriend in Buckinghamshire, my work projects and home so am not here all the time!

Yes ! Of course I'd love to meet you, but won't get in your way.

Your privacy and relaxation time is valuable so I'll plan to be here to show you around and so that you can ask any questions, then will disappear for the duration of your stay.

But if you'd like any help, just call me.

Or if you would like to entertain friends and need me to drive you to Goodwood or prepare and cook for a party let's discuss how I can make your stay perfect.

We can cater for up to about 24 people for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or more for a drinks party, by prior arrangement.
