We have been staying at Canute Cottages in the Old Dairy on a regular basis since they opened. The standard of furnishings was excellent then and still is. You can walk down the lane to the edge of Chichester Old Harbour (approx 3,500 acres) and follow a wheelchair accessible trail along the edge of the harbour to The Point where there is a bench to sit on and watch the 'world sail by'.
There are all sorts of facilities for children in the old barn which in July had a webcam trained on an owl's nest in the roof of the barn.
This is one of our favourite places - sooooooo relaxing!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Canute Cottages consists of 4 award winning self catering holiday cottages converted from farm buildings and grouped in a courtyard on the Chidham peninsular, right in the middle of Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.(AONB) The cottages are all single storey, two are wheelchair accessible with one having a wheel-in wet-room. Plenty of play-space for children and a huge play barn with skittles, ping-pong, table football, toddler toys and more for those wet days. The cottages are to a high standard (Enjoy England 4*) and very well equipped. We have many repeat visitors, some coming several times a year to enjoy the space, peace and beauty of this part of the harbour. Close to Chichester, Portsmouth, and the South Downs, there is always something to do in the area, famous for the Chichester Festival Theatre, Goodwood for horse racing and motor sport festivals, historic ships at Portsmouth and the Roman Palace at Fishbourne. We welcome disabled guests, families, dogs and sailors - we have our own private slipway to launch your canoe or sailing dinghy.( by prior arrangement) ... more less
