Property description

Holme Street House is set in 10 acres of private land, over 2 acres of which are delightful tended gardens. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool (April - Sept approx) in its own walled area. The house is well equipped and beautifully furnished, having been our family home. The accommodation comprises farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with AGA; spacious but cosy beamed dining room with table seating 10-12; tranquil sitting room with open fire & baby grand piano; family room with wood burning stove, double sofa bed, TV etc (Sky); downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs there are four large bedrooms with lovely views over the gardens, 2 with double beds, 2 with zip and link twin beds which can be joined to make super king beds. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with shower over the bath, and two further bedrooms have washbasins. There is a further family bathroom with power shower over the bath. Children are welcome - a good selection of books, toys & videos are provided.


IMPORTANT NOTES re the 'Get a Quote' section on this page: Due to recent changes and the limitations in HomeAway's new system, 'quotes' generated by this website are not quotations from the owner and are often incorrect, particularly if they are not Fri/Sat bookings or full week bookings. Please contact Lucy Cheeseman (the property manager) directly for accurate pricing information. However, I will outline how I work out the rates here. A weekend (Friday, Saturday) is priced at the rate on the website, to stay one night more the nightly rate for that period is added to that, for two nights it is the nightly rate x2 which is added on and so on. For a booking of one week, the price on the site is correct. For midweek stays the basic price for two nights is £75 less than the weekend rate, and then the nightly rate applies, to be added on to the two night rate, for mid week stays of longer than two nights.

Local Amenities: The house is about 1 mile from the village, with easy parking. Within the village there is an excellent greengrocer and two butchers - all of these stock locally grown/organic produce. There is a co-op which has all the basics, including fresh bread, a chemist and a post office. There is also a very good wine shop. The tea room sells lovely cakes, also light lunches. There are two good pubs - one at the end of the lane, a three minute walk from the house - the food here is excellent, summer and winter. There are also two supermarkets within a five minute drive from the house, and a fish and chip shop.

In Storrington, about five miles away, there are several very good restaurants.

General Notes: Due to the size of the property considerable maintenance of the grounds is needed, and the gardener will be on site for approximately four days each week, with his hours sometimes split across the week depending on what work is needed. He is very discreet and will endeavour to keep out of your way if you are using a particular part of the garden. He also knows a great deal about the house and grounds, so is a useful source of information should you need anything. The pool is heated by air source heat pump, so is somewhat dependent on external air temperature.

Other Amenities

  • A further note on seating - the lounge & family room both have seating for 8, but a number of the chairs are easily portable from room to room if 10 are staying. There are toys & games available for guests' use, and a selection of videos & DVDs. Due to age (the house is 250 years old), the stone floors on the ground floor are somewhat uneven, with steps to some of the rooms, hence saying the property is unsuitable for wheelchairs, or elderly or infirm. The washing machine and tumble dryer are situated in the cellar down stone steps, which are reached through a door in the hallway. The large garden is a particular feature of the property, and includes an orchard and a wooden wendy house for children. The field (7 acres) is sometimes grazed by sheep, and has a small lake, stocked with roach and carp. You are welcome to bring fishing rods! ...moreless
