"The cottage was ideal for our short break in this lovely part of West Sussex. We were made very welcome on our arrival and throughout our stay. We would not hesitate to use the cottage again on any future trips to Sussex."
Wonderful place in the country to isolate for two weeks
"Having flown in from California, my wife and I needed to quarantine for a fortnight. Rather than stay in a city, we opted for the country where we figured we could get out and walk a short distance without encountering anyone else and breaking the rules. Yew Tree Granary turned out to be perfect for us. There was almost no traffic and no pedestrians on the layby where it is situated so we could enjoy a short stroll to break the day up. Our hosts, Emma and Hugo, were great, not to ignore the dogs, Teisel and Otto. The kitchen, though tiny, worked for us, wifi was great and we comfortable sitting inside and outside. The only negative in our stay involved Amazon delivery. Of our three Amazon orders, only one was actually delivered to us. Amazon claimed the other two were delivered but if they were, they weren't to us. Sainsburys, on the other hand, got our three orders to us with no problem."
A lovely cottage well situated for visiting the south downs
"A well positioned cosy cottage. Emma is a perfect host, extremely welcoming and offering lots of valuable advice for walks etc"
Charming property in lovely location
"This property is just as advertised, so although the kitchenette is small, we were prepared for this and coped well.Other facilities were excellent. Emma is the perfect host: she is helpful, informative and friendly without being intrusive. Her husband and dogs were also good neighbours! Our dog was made as welcome as we were. Hardham is a good base for exploring the local countryside and we found getting around straightforward (we have no car) and enjoyed the glorious surroundings - the good weather certainly helped, though there would have been enough to do had it been inclement. We recommend Amberley (go to the tea rooms especially if you like a large slice of cake!) and Petworth (even if you can't visit the house, the park offers a lovely walk). "
Good position. Good host.
"A comfortable stay and met our needs .We were made to feel very welcome. Comfortable and clean bed ensured we had a good night's sleep "
A comfortable property with welcoming owners.
"The Granary is a comfortable property well situated for walking on the Downs and for vising nearby tourist attractions - the local RSPB reserve is a good spot for Nightingales. On the first couple of days the weather was a little cold, but the heating worked well and after that the sun was glorious. The property is just as it is described so we were ready for the small kitchen, and two pot cooking was not a problem. On other evenings we ate out - local pubs recommended by the owners were good and the Thai in Pulborough was excellent. We really enjoyed this part of Sussex and would love to come back to the Granary. "
"Lovely warm friendly cottage Emma was so helpful and obliging she could not do enough for us. Ideal place to visit all the lovely places on South Downs also the coast great walks everywhere,hope to go back some time ."
Great short break
"Cottage fine with comfortable bed, cooking facilities a bit restricted - but no problem as we ate out in local pubs or had takeaways. Close to south downs so plenty of good walking. Brighton and other attractions an easy drive away. "
"We had a very comfortable stay at Yew Tree Barn,it was nicely situated to explore the area. We have a small dog and we were able to take him out in the lane early in the morning rather having to drive to find a field .There was everything you would need for a short stay. The kitchen was a bit small but we didn?t cook anyway so not a problem for us . It was dog friendly and the owner had left treats for him,we had a great time ."
The Granary - enjoyable stay
"Wanted a place for myself and my dog within an hours drive and found The Granary. Perfect cottage in a good location with everything you need. Kitchen not made for two and doesn't have an oven, but microwave/cooker was just fine. Bed was very comfortable and had no problem sleeping. Very convenient for the coast - Littlehampton, Climping, Rustington, Bognor and Worthing. Great walks all around. Didn't eat out as nice to just stay in and enjoy the cottage. Will definitely book again."
"A warm friendly welcome from Emma set the scene for an enjoyable stay at Yew Tree Granary which is ideally located for exploring the South Downs. The cottage is small but with a clever use of space. The website makes it clear that the kitchen is restricted in size so I was prepared for cooking being limited. But the limited work surfaces and tiny sink proved challenging, although I got used to it. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of hanging and drawer storage. All in all very good value for the money paid."
A cosy cottage
"We had a great few days in this cosy cottage. Very comfortable with everything we needed. Emma was a delight and very helpful. The White Hart pub was just a short walk away across fields and streams, a great way to spend the evening. Lots to see and do in the area. We would definitely return."
good short stay
"This was a good place for a short stay - small but comfortable. Good walking on the downs and across the river meadows, very picturesque villages, fantastic wall paintings in the church next door."
Cosy Warm Cottage
"We had a very comfortable stay at Yew Tree Granary Cottage. We had a lovely friendly warm welcome from Emma when we arrived, she couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage was very cosy, and although small, had everything we needed. The location was very quiet too. The only thing that let us down was the weather. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to explore the countryside plus not to far from Arundel and Petworth. We would both love to go back there one day."
"My dog and I stayed over the Christmas period and absolutely loved this rural gem! The hostess, Emma, is so lovely and welcoming. I recommend to all! "
Welcoming cosy very friendly
"Really enjoyed our stay. Our host Emma was very friendly & welcoming, our dogs also hit it off. Lovely little cottage had everything we needed in a peaceful location. Pub and shop were not in walking distance but it didn't matter. Good location to explore West Sussex. Would definitely stay again & recommend. Snacks & dog biscuits ere a nice touch as was tea & coffee supplied."
Yew Tree Granary September stay
"We enjoyed a lovely,relaxing break here,very quiet. Emma was very welcoming and helpful. Location was perfect for exploring this part of Sussex. We would definitely use Yew Tree Granary again."
A lovely little bolt hole
"This is a charming little cottage, ideal for a couple and a dog. The owners Emma and Hugo were lovely, displaying the perfect balance of interest and concern without being intrusive. Prior to our visit Emma e-mailed details of local pubs and eateries which was very helpful. I would recommend the cottage to anyone wanting a break in the beautiful West Sussex countryside. I don't think you will be disappointed."
"Kitchen a bit small. Needs a mirror in bedroom for drying hair. Television only changes channels when you get right up to it. "
"Had a relaxing stay, lovely cottage and had everything we needed in it. The owners were very welcoming."
We were very pleased of the friendliness of our Landlady.
"Everything was better than we expected. Especially the warm welcome by the hosts. The stay was relaxing in the quiet surroundings of West Sussex. The Location was a perfect starting point for our visits of so many beautiful parks and gardens nearby."
A very pleasant stay
"Cosy, comfortable and full of character. Difficult to get used to confines of kitchen but this is clearly advertised and reflected in the price."
Another great stay at Yew tree Granary
"We had another great stay at Yew Tree Granary. Our host left us a lovely bottle of wine to enjoy in the garden in the sunshine. The property was very clean as usual. We have been returning to this cottage for a few years now. We find the location great for exploring Sussex and the fact we can take our little dog along is ideal."
"Really nice place to stay Emma was very helpful. Very quiet as it's set back from the road .will visit again .must say the bed was so comfortable. Thank you Emma for making us very comfortable."
A short break.
"A pleasant stay, lovely countryside and walks nearby.Cottage basic and small but adequate, bedroom comfy, could do with a little attention and redecoration in places and was a little chilly in the evenings. Emma the host was friendly and welcoming. "
"Cottage was easy to find using postcode on satnav. The bedroom, lounge and bathroom were a good size whereas the kitchen was really small, all cooking is either on a two hob stove connected to the sink or with a combination grill/microwave oven. This meant that most meals were ready meals from supermarkets, which is not our normal fare. We stayed a week during February and it was fairly cold and though there are heaters in the cottage we did need to use the movable oil filled radiator in the lounge. Bedroom was warm enough. Cottage was supplied with plenty of leaflets of things to do in the area, which was great ."
Thank you for your feedback and yes you stayed at the coldest time of the year, but we're glad that the moveable heater helped provide you with good warmth. This is a compact cottage and in particular the kitchen is limited on space and function. We do try and convey this in both our photographs and description so we're sorry that it did not quite work for you. It's in a great area though within the South Downs and we are pleased you found the leaflets useful in helping to plan your day.
Fantastic place, very comfortable.
"Fantastic place, very comfortable. Would stay again. Very friendly. Ideal location for many places locally."
