Getting the taste for country life

Living in a country cottage sounds idyllic but it doesn’t suit everyone. To discover whether country life is right for you, one option is to rent a rural or village home before investing in buying.

For anyone looking to try out country life, Henry Adams Lettings offer a wide range of rural and semi-rural properties for rental in the villages and countryside across West Sussex and into Hampshire and Surrey.

One such home is in Upperton, a village near Petworth. The 2 bedroom, stone fronted cottage oozes character with a log burner in a pretty living room with whitewashed walls. The kitchen has a butler’s sink & modern appliances and a useful cellar/utility room offers practical storage. Available at £995 monthly, the cottage has a double bedroom and second smaller bedroom suited to use as a study or dressing room. There's also a courtyard garden and parking.
“This is a particularly lovely cottage and all landlords who place their properties with Henry Adams Lettings can have confidence in our experience of successfully letting rural and village homes of all shapes and sizes,” said Emily Perry, Manager of Henry Adams Lettings in Midhurst.

“Often tenants are seeking something a little different from what the rest of the letting market has to offer so countryside homes can be highly sought after.”

An exceptional country house  to let is a beautifully restored Grade II listed cottage in Heyshott. The 4 bedroom home has an abundance of charm with exposed beams and impressive inglenook fireplaces as well as a bespoke designed kitchen. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and the views of the South Downs are breathtaking. This unique property is available to rent at £2,700 monthly through Henry Adams Midhurst.

“We get a number of enquiries from families moving out of London who would like their family to enjoy a country upbringing but who don’t want to be too far from local shops & amenities, or from London,” said Emily.  

“Renting a countryside or village property provides the perfect opportunity to experience rural and village living without the long term commitment to buy and while some tenants will go on to purchase, many of our tenants choose to extend their letting arrangements as they settle in to country life.”
