Full description

Records show there has been a priory on this site since the registration of the Doomsday book dating back to 1085. The priory was then re-constructed in the 1600's from the burnt out remains, there are still ruins from the old building in and around the walled garden where the swimming pool is now situated.The Old Priory is an absolutely charming Grade II Listed Farmhouse which has been running as a successful B&B for over 30 years by the current owners who are proud of their AA 4 stars listing and excellent repeat customer base. However, one could use the property as a generous family home with annexe accommodation in the barn and potential for further annexe accommodation in the double garage which already has utilities available. Set in delightful walled grounds with a formal lawn, charming courtyard, swimming pool, with summer house, hot tub and gazebo. The gravel drive provides ample parking.

The main farmhouse accommodation has many character features one would expect from a property of this era including high beamed ceilings, sash windows, French doors and feature fireplaces. The dual aspect sitting room has an Inglenook fireplace with a Sussex Beehive chimney stack and French doors opening onto a walled courtyard garden and leading to the utility and pool shower room. The formal dining room leads to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of bespoke pine units, Range style hob, eye-level ovens and breakfast area. There is also a cosy snug/study with fireplace, French doors and oak panelling. On the first floor, the principal bedroom has a dressing area and luxury en-suite bathroom, there are three further bedrooms, one with an en-suite, one with a WC and basin and shower room. The second floor has three interconnecting rooms and a WC. The Barn is currently three double bedrooms all with en-suites.

Why live in Bognor Regis & Aldwick?

The town of Bognor earned its seal of royal approval when King George V came here to convalesce in the 1920s. Fast forward and Bognor is now favoured as a commercial hub, with many large retailers moving to the area to take advantage of the wealth of commercial property available. There are also many new residential developments on the edge of the old town that blend well with the period properties and apartments on the seafront.

Bognor Regis is one of the sunniest places in the UK and our award-winning beaches are a great place to go to soak up the rays. The huge expanses of sand are bordered by a long esplanade that stretches for nearly three miles and provides the launch pad for the annual International Bognor Birdman competition.

We have a broad range of school options and plenty of recreational facilities for families. One of the best is Hotham Park in the centre of town, which has plenty to entertain the young ones, including a crazy golf course, a miniature railway and a boating lake. It also hosts several major events over the year, including Proms in the Park, a Country Fair and the South Downs Music Festival.

You’ll also find many places to eat and drink, especially along the esplanade and along the High Street, where fresh, locally caught fish feature on the menus. Local shopping is also good, with all the major chains you’d hope to find and some quirky independent shops too.
