My husband and I had a fantastic stay here, it exceeded all my expectations. The room was spacious, warm and clean. The bed was the most comfortable I have stayed in with the softest linen. Without a doubt that is the best shower I have used, with underfloor heating in the bathroom too. Those luxurious little touches such as the...

This is a very nice beautifully equipped B&B. Very quite rural setting but only 10 mins away from the shops/restaurants of Chichester. Greeted by the charming hostess Helen and her 2 adorable children and 2 pooches. we were made to feel very welcome. The full english brekkie wasn't half bad either. Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone discerning.

We only stayed one night but will be returning next time we are in Chichester as this B&B is a great find. Martin was full of information about the area when I called to book and recommended a local seafood restaurant for the evening which was great. Our room in the converted barn was spotless and everything felt new and...

We enjoyed 3 nights at Lockgate Dairy. No sign of any lockgates, but we stayed in part of a converted barn with superb accommodation. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge and kitchen diner with Miele dishwasher and washing machine. A huge breakfast which you need to specify if your appetite is not enormous. A proper fresh fruit salad was also...

Very nice B&B establishment, Martin the owner was very welcoming. Room was excellent and breakfast was terrific. It could be a little tricky to find but Martin had sent some directions in advance so was not an issue. There is no exterior lighting from car park to entrance and can get very dark, I used my mobile phone torch. Located...

Had a very peaceful one night stay. Owners very accommodating and attention to detail is excellent. Large variety of breakfast items on offer. We ate at Samphire in East Wittering which is firm favourite of ours. Will be back.

My partner and I stayed at Lockgate Dairy whilst needing to visit the local area for business. What a wonderful place! The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean, super soft pillows and duvet, the bed so comfy and very good quality bed linen (I'm an interior designer and a complete bed linen snob!) I love the layout of the Old dairy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lockgate Dairy offers superb, 5-Star B&B accommodation. Once, a working dairy, Lockgate Dairy is set in rural, open farmland away from all busy roads. It is an ideal place for down time at the end of the business day, and a peaceful night's sleep. Road noise is banished, here. The extra little touches you'll notice and a hearty breakfast, the next morning, will see you right through.If you're in the zone more for pleasure rather than necessity, for a short break, then Chichester is famous for its cathedral, the Festival Theatre, the Novium Museum (based at a Roman bathhouse) and high quality restaurants of varied cuisines. With wide streets and plentiful parking, the town is one of the South's most pleasant shopping experiences, unusually, still dominated by independent shops and plentiful interesting architecture.Immediately surrounding Lockgate Dairy is flat countryside ideal for walking, cycling and exploring Chichester Harbour (sailing, boat tours) with numerous charming waters-edge hamlets and pathways, the expansive sandy beach of West Wittering and the nature reserve at Pagham.Drive just 15 minutes and you could be revving it up on the starting grid at Goodwood motor racing track or looking down Runway 33, about to launch into the skies from Goodwood airfield (formerly RAF Westhamptnet, a satellite WW2 airfield to RAF Tangmere where Hurricanes, Spitfires and Typhoons were once based.Drive a further 5 minutes you're into glorious South Downs scenery. There, Goodwood horse racing is a sure bet as is the amazing Weald and Downland Musuem. ... more   less
