Full description

Old Farm Cottage is a well presented and picturesque property situated on one of the most sought after roads in Eastergate.

The property has been totally refurbished by the current owners and has been completed to a very high standard. The kitchen/breakfast room has a very spacious layout and vaulted ceiling along with a well equipped kitchen and access outside to the rear garden. The kitchen leads through to the sitting room which is dual aspect looking to the front of the property and out over the rear garden. The room also benefits from an open fireplace, a centre piece of the room. On the ground floor there is also a bedroom and the larger of the two bath/shower rooms.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom is a generous double room and has the advantage of plenty of built in storage. The second bedroom is also a double and has a feature fireplace. The third bedroom is the smallest of the four and would work best as a nursery or perhaps a study.

The gardens wrap round the side and rear of the house and there is parking for several cars to the front along with a carport and garage. There is a room over the garage that could be used as a home office or a bunk house for guests. There is also a substantial shed in the garden ideal for garden enthusiasts or simply as storage.


Old Farm Cottage is ideally situated to benefit from immediate access to the local village store, as well as a nearby (CAMRA) public house and schools. There is a further range of local shops, public houses, schools and mainline railway station to London Victoria in Barnham. Fontwell racecourse offers a season of horse racing whilst to the north west Goodwood is famous for its many event days including the world renowned Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival for motor racing enthusiasts and a season of flat horse racing including the Qatar Goodwood Festival. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars and festival theatre. The historic town of Arundel offers a great variety of attractions including the Castle, arts and antiques. The area to the north is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs National Park.

Why live in 6 Villages?

Each of the Six Villages of Barnham, Eastergate, Westergate, Walberton, Fontwell and Yapton has its own distinct character and friendly, active community. They’re within easy reach of London, excellent beaches and the South Downs National Park, which means people who live here have the best of all worlds.

The smallest is Barnham, which sits at the centre of the Six Villages, and is the best connected thanks to its mainline railway station that serves Bognor Regis, Brighton, Chichester, London Victoria, Portsmouth and Southampton. It’s known for its iconic Grade II Listed windmill, which is now a private residence, and its neighbouring Windmill Shopping Village that has many independent shops, workshops and a tearoom. There’s also a real olde worlde pub, The Murrell Arms, and two local schools – Barnham Primary and St Philip Howard Catholic High School.

Eastergate has a primary school, Eastergate C E Primary School, a general store, Post Office and parish hall that hosts a playgroup, sports clubs, theatrical performances and family events. The sports field doubles up as a community recreation ground and is the home ground for Eastergate Cricket Club and the local stoolball club – a traditional Sussex game that’s similar to cricket.  

Westergate has plenty of shops and the Six Villages Sports Centre, which has a gym, sports hall and football and cricket pitches. There are also two schools in the village, the Aldingbourne Primary School and Ormiston Six Villages Academy.

Walberton is the second smallest of the villages and has a very traditional look and feel with a duck pond, a single pub that’s served the locals since the 1800s and a village hall that’s the hub of community life. The local school is Walberton and Binsted C of E Primary School and a selection of village shops are clustered along the main street.

Fontwell is world famous as the home of the Fontwell Racecourse, which holds horseracing fixtures, car rallies and other large functions throughout the year. There are some magnificent houses in the local area and a small parade of shops in the village centre.

Yapton is known as the village that never shuts its doors, which harks back to the days when smugglers would hide their contraband in the nearest house when excise men gave chase. The village has its own primary school, Yapton C of E Primary School, a selection of shops by the village green and the Yapton and Ford Village Hall, which is used to host community events.
