Full description

Situated at the end of a long driveway approach the cottage sits within its gardens and grounds of just over half an acre and is bounded on its western and northern sides by pastureland. Part timber framed with exposed external timbers and distinctive herringbone brickwork evidence suggests the property dates as far back as the late 15th Century with more recent additions in the 1950's. Diamond leaded light windows and stonework at the back compliment the appearance.

Internally the accommodation extends to almost 1700 sq ft of floor space, including the garaging with good head height throughout the cottage.

Outside, there is ample parking with access into the detached double garage. The majority of garden is laid to lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and trees with pathways leading to an unused brick built stable block, with a small yard at the front and potential for conversion to a home office, or other, subject to planning permission. The property benefits from all mains services including gas fired central heating.


A delightful Grade II listed period cottage dating in part back to the late 15th Century in just over half an acre.


The cottage is situated between Storrington and Thakeham, off the B2139 and is approached by a long driveway servicing four other properties. Although within the parish of Thakeham, the nearest facilities are in Storrington, approximately 1.5 miles where there is a good range of local shops, including a Watirose store, library, doctors surgery, dentists as well as a wide variety of sports and social clubs.

Why live in Storrington?

This picture-perfect village lies at the foot of the South Downs National Park, halfway along the South Downs Way. Properties here include bungalows, family homes and the famous Wells cottages that were individually designed by the architect Reginald Fairfax Wells in the 1920s to look and feel like 17th century buildings with thatched roofs, small windows and whitewashed exteriors.

Many of the homes in Storrington have wonderful views across rolling countryside and a conservation area just off the bustling high street ensures Storrington will remain as beautiful as it is today for generations to come.

There are lots of specialist shops in the town and convenient amenities such as the large recreational ground with its football and cricket pitches, the Chanctonbury Sport and Leisure Centre and an abundance of community groups offering classes in all sorts of interesting activities from ballroom dancing to photography. For a spot of culture, visit the Parham House and Gardens or the local Storrington and District Museum and for outdoor pursuits, take time to explore the natural beauty of the South Downs on foot, bike or horseback or, for a truly spectacular experience, take to the air in a glider.

Our local schools belong to a cluster group called STARS (Storrington Area Rural Schools) and, between them, offer a choice of paths from Reception through to Year 13. Steyning Grammar School is included in the list of STARS and is a popular choice as it’s non-selective and has its own Sixth Form.

Storrington is well connected too; the nearest train station is in the neighbouring village of Pulborough. The five-mile journey only takes 10 minutes by car or you can take a bus; the bus timetable is synced with the train timetable to make life even easier for local commuters.
