Little Annexe at The Old Rectory

South Harting, West Sussex | Sleeps 4 | Bedrooms 2 | Parking: Yes | Wi -Fi: Yes

From £150 per night (2 night minimum stay)


There are some homes that just ooze sophistication, and the Little Annexe is definitely one of them. Attached to the owner’s property, the Old Rectory, Little Annexe is a testament to their sense of style and superb attention to detail.

The ground floor rooms and hallways are decorated in a palette of greys and greens, while the two double bedrooms are sumptuously and individually styled – one in rich berry colours, the other in delicate pastels, but both with rich upholstery, crisp white bed linen and plump cushions. The two bathrooms are light and bright with gold accessories. The kitchen is similarly stylish and well equipped, including a coffee machine to get you up and about on those weekend mornings! Although the beautiful countryside views from the bedroom windows will help, too….


Outside a patio is at your disposal for summer evenings, and inside, the electrcic wood burner will keep you cosy on winter nights.

Little Annexe is dog friendly and it is just as well – the South Downs Way is just a 20 minute walk up the hill, so it’s the perfect spot for doggy adventures. Throw in a village pub, and close proximity to Goodwood and coast, and this may just be the perfect weekend bolthole, at any time of year.


Kitchen: Fully stocked, including dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, oven, Nespresso coffee machine and safe. Complimentary tea and coffee.

Living Room:  Triple Sofa (can be a double bed), TV, Dining table for 5, bluetooth speakers. Electric log burner. 

Bedroom 1: King size bed, incredible views of the South Downs, en suite shower room.

Bedroom 2:  Two twin beds, incredible views of the South Downs, en suite bath and shower room.

Parking: Off road parking for up to 2 cars.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome and high chairs, cot beds, stair guards etc can be supplied on request

Dogs: More than welcome

Please note that a family with children and a friendly dog live next door in the main house and you may, at times, hear them briefly. 


Little Annexe is situated in a pretty village in the South Downs National Park. Ideally situated between the coast, Goodwood, Petersfield and Chichester. The nearest train station is Petersfield, 7 minutes away and takes 1 hour to get to London by train or car.

Things to do

Food & Drink The White Hart is a charming old village Inn, just two minutes walk away, with a great menu and a warm welcome – so there is no need to travel far! But there are any number of wonderful Sussex country pubs in this area, so anyone wanting to explore will have plenty of choice. Try the Three Horseshoes at Elsted for a pint of ale and stunning panoramic views of the South Downs, or the Lickfold Inn for fine dining or their delicious bar snacks (try their gourmet scotch eggs!). Chichester is a short drive and offers everything from pizza to Thai food and the fantastic ‘Farmer, Butcher, Chef’ restaurant on the Goodwood Estate. For a seaside vibe head to East Wittering or the Boat House Chichester Marina.

Things to Do South Harting is a superb stopping off point for the South Downs Way, so hikers and cyclists will be in heaven. There are miles of other country walks and trails nearby too. The Goodwood Estate is just 16 minutes drive – so easily accessible for The Festival of Speed, Revival, Glorious Goodwood, or just a trip to the golf course, spa or aerodrome. Polo at Cowdray Park draws fans to Midhurst throughout the summer, culminating in the Gold Cup in July. Chichester offers great shopping, as well as more cultural delights such as the renowned Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery.


Beautiful place – we had a lovely stay. Very comfy beds!

My husband and I had one night stay in Katie’s beautiful cottage, it was well equipped, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. It is in a perfect position near to the village store, church and local pub. All in all 10 out of 10. 

So helpful, great site and our hosts were incredibly accommodating. We found a brilliant place to stay at very short notice, so many wonderful properties to consider for another time too! Would definitely recommend Little Annexe at The Old Rectory, wonderful place for a family break. 

Magnificent sanctuary and a magnificent host. We needed somewhere to relax and re-charge and that is exactly what we got in a stylish and cosy setting with the support of a wonderful host. Thank you so much. 

We had a nice stay, every step was made easy from booking to checking out and we were kept really well informed by the host. The accommodation itself was spotless when we arrived and had a homely feel to it. A very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Thank you. 

Little Annexe at The Old Rectory is a wonderful peaceful place in the middle of the South Downs National Park. The host has created a beautiful place and everything you could possibly need during your stay. We very much enjoyed our stay and didn’t want to leave again. We can very much recommend this little haven, even if it was for one night. 

 The place is beautifully decorated and spotless with lovely personal touches to make it feel like home. the views out of the window are great and the village has a great dog-friendly pub, it all has a genuine country-life feel. 

We used Cabins and Castles to find a holiday cottage. They have such an amazing range of fantastic properties. We had such a great holiday and will definitely be booking through Cabins and Castles again. 

The Annexe is absolutely stunning. Beautifully decorated and well equipped for a truly luxurious stay. I cannot recommed it highly enough.
