Standing in the grounds of the owners' 17th century Grade II listed cottage, The Creamery is an impressive oak timber clad barn which, until recently, was used for making a local cheese. Its conversion into spacious, high quality holiday accommodation has been carefully researched and it now provides a delightful country retreat in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the borders of Surrey and Sussex.

A stay at The Creamery is a chance to immerse yourself in country life; the owners run an interesting 10 acre smallholding with geese, a few pigs and bantam chickens and make a vintage Sussex cyder, using the champagne method, which has received high praise in the BBC's Food & Drink programme and from Jancis Robinson in the Financial Times.

From The Creamery there are marvellous opportunities for walking in the private woodland surrounding the property with direct access to Black Down (National Trust), which at 917ft., offers far-reaching over the Sussex countryside. Visitors also have the use of the owner's hard tennis court. For keen golfers there are courses at Chiddingfold (2 miles) and Shillinglee (1 1/2 miles), while for keen fishermen, day tickets are available on local waters. Other sporting activities in the area include polo at Midhurst and horse racing at Goodwood. The area has some fine historic houses and gardens, including Petworth and Winkworth Arboretum and a number of very good village pubs and restaurants within a short drive. Haslemere (4 miles), Petworth (8 miles) and Midhurst (9 miles) are the nearest small towns, with Haslemere providing a 50 minute rail link to London.

The Creamery is ideal for two families wishing to spend a holiday together, but is also suitable for a smaller party out of season when the lower pricing becomes applicable.

The accommodation is practical, light and very spacious with attractive oak flooring and leaded light windows. Fittings and furnishings are to high specifications (eg. heated towel rails and power showers). The very large open plan living room, which comprises the whole of the 1st floor, is a feature of the accommodation.

Useful Links:


Ground floor: Entrance hall. 2 double bedrooms, both with a kingsize bed, adjacent to a bathroom/w.c. with shower attachment to the bath. 2 twin bedrooms.

Utility room with external access. 1st floor: Very large, open plan living room incorporating an oak fitted kitchen, dining area with long solid oak dining table and a large sitting area with a Jotul woodburning stove.

What our guests say

Excellent place to stay for a family gathering

The Creamery was a brilliant upside down house with all facilities required and the owners were very welcoming and on hand if we needed anything. The nightingales were in full song which was lovely. We would definitely go there again when we next go down south. Thanks.

Lovely house - perfect for 2 families or one large one!

Spent at lunch very "Thanksgiving" at the Creamery. James and Kathy very helpful. Great pubs nearby at Chiddingfold and Lurgashall - recommend Sunday lunch at The Crown.

Guest's review on TripAdvisor, December 1 2014. 5 of 5 stars.

“A wonderful house in the Sussex countryside!” The Creamery is a gorgeous property, clean and spacious with a great open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area at the top of the house. The wood fire and well stocked wood shed were a great addition on the windier, rainier days. We were travelling as a party of friends and the house was a good space to catch up, watch films and cook in the very well equipped kitchen. Kathy and James were very friendly and offered a lot of guidance regarding the surrounding towns and countryside. Although there is enough sleeping space for a party of 10, I think that it would be a rather crowded house with that many people and that the property would be absolutely perfect for a party of 6-8 (because of seating space in the dining and lounge area upstairs). The location of the property is wonderful and very close to lots of beautiful National Trust areas - although a car would be essential for travelling to the nearest places.

A wonderful spacious and comfortable home from home. We had a super week - walking in the woods, listening to the owls and watching birdlife. Some excellent pubs and good walking country too - Kathy was so helpful - many thanks and we hope to be back soon.

Wonderful, cosy Christmas - the children loved the toys and the chickens - a great holiday back in the UK - very helpful hosts.

Mr M Hebburn, December 2013

We recently returned from a wonderful weekend break at The Creamery. It was a fantastic place and I would highly recommend it to others.
