About Jeremy Hirsch
My wife grew up in the area. We now live in London but the whole family has enjoyed many years in Sussex.
Why Jeremy Hirsch chose Fittleworth
The area, but even more the private lane, is very special. Just to walk out of the front door into the countryside never loses its appeal for us. We love going into Petworth, either to enjoy the range of shops or have coffee and homemade chocolates in the Coco Cafe or brunch in the Hungry Guest! The walks are amazing ..from Chanctonbury Ring or simply from our cottage door to the medieval Stopham Church
What makes this Cottage unique
Being 5 minutes drive from Pulborough whilst situated in the quietest and prettiest location is a perfect combination. Also to have a garden of that size, coupled with the fact that there are no houses opposite gives one a sense of being in the middle of nowhere.

Lovely weeks stay at Ashlyns
Very well equipped house and lovely garden which our 2 dogs enjoyed. A peaceful location and plenty to visit in the area. Made use of the local village shop which had everything in it. Nice to sit in the conservatory and enjoy the garden.
Great Location and Great Character - Richard and Yvonne
We decided that Ashlyns would make a great property as a base for our sons wedding. We were not dissapointed, it ticked all our boxes. The house is overflowing with character and it will take forever to appreciate all the ornaments, books, pictures and paintings contained within the property. Note, do not expect ikea/habitat/ john lewis - this property is a cut above. It does have all the amenities of a modern house and is really well equiped for 6 people. As for the garden, just beautiful, during our visit numerous different birds visited the garden. There is plenty of space for a game of croquet - albeit on a rather bumpy lawn. A 20 minute casual walk takes you to the Swan in Fittleworth - has the same quality and character that Ashlyns holds. (Sunday Roast was the best pub roast we havde had). Finally I would like to thank Jeremy for his super fast response to all our communications. We did have a problem during our stay (something that no one could have predicted) Jeremy's response was quite superb and we were very grateful . If you choose Ashlyns for your vacation or as a base for touring the area I can be confident you will not be disappointed.
The cottage and garden were utterly delightful and we had a most enjoyable and comfortable stay.
Wonderful property with beautiful garden
We were lucky enough to spend a very relaxing few days over the New Year period in this lovely cottage in Fittleworth. Fabulous location close to woodland walks, Petworth house close by, plenty of family and dog-friendly pubs to choose from. The cottage is extremely well appointed and the garden is amazing, our 2 kids and dog enjoyed themselves thoroughly! Jeremy was very helpful and we would definitely recommend and stay again.
Cozy and quiet stay
A charming and well appointed house, quiet and secluded with beautiful garden. Perfect for a short relaxing stay or as a base to explore the South Downs.
The perfect getaway home from home.
Beautiful property in lovely surroundings. We were given plenty of information before arrival making it all much more relaxed. Absolutely everything was catered for and thought of. It literally felt like home and had everything we could possibly need. Perfect family home with a huge beautiful garden. Ideal for young and old. Lots of lovely touches. Thank you for a super holiday.
