I can highly recommend the Clock House - absolutely perfect for couples - in a quiet location with parking but right in the heart of Chichester (just minutes to walk to the shops, restaurants and the theatre), with a really pretty courtyard terrace with outside seating and lighting. Totally refurbished to a very high standard with a log burner, a heated bathroom floor, luxury bedding, fluffy robes - too many lovely touches to mention ie fresh flowers, complimentary welcome pack. The attention to detail all adds up to make it a great place to relax and enjoy. Will be back with our bikes - great for easy cycling to Bosham, Chichester Harbour and the Centurion Way or the South Downs for those who want a more challenging ride.
We have been visiting Chichester for 15 years and we can honestly say this is the best place to stay !! We feel like we have struck gold finding this place ! The location is perfect, a stone throw away from the town centre with the added bonus of off street gated parking !
It's is a ten minute drive to Goodwood, 15/20 minutes to West Wittering beach and a 2 minute walk to all the shops and local restaurants.
The house it self is finished to a high spec and is bursting full of character and a romantic/relaxed ambiance.
Lovely extras including Molton Brown products, fluffy bath robes, heated flooring, a docking station, board games, books, local chocolates, a fresh crusty loaf and fresh orange juice all to add to your experience. We did not want to leave !!
Rachel, the owner is so helpful and can't do enough for you if you were to need anything or have any special requirements (eg picnic hampers and much more)
Highly recommend and can't wait to stay here again !
This was one of the best nights away we have ever had. The guest house was breathtaking,cosy and oozing charm. Nothing was too much trouble as my husband added extras to the stay,, we had nibbles and champers ready for us to enjoy whilst sinking into the luxurious sofa in front of a ready -laid fire,,, perfect setting with candles for our special time away. We opted for a hamper evening 3 course meal from the local restaurant ,,it was delicious and fresh, we just warmed in oven and ate at the table that was beautifully arranged with flowers and little muffins in a dome, it was so thought out -this was like stepping into a dream. After the meal and chilling out, I had the pleasure of a deep bubble bath using the toiletries provided I was in heaven! The fluffy thick towels were just gorgeous and the charismatic bedroom blew us away. This ticked all the boxes for us. Good value but great that you're in control to book extras like breakfast hampers etc. We would stay again as we felt spoilt rotten and it was easy to book and communication was great.
From the moment we drove into the charming courtyard (what a plus to have parking in the centre of the city) we felt so relaxed and immediately adored the facade and attention to detail. Window boxes and table and chairs made us want to sit out straight away and enjoy the warmer weather we were lucky to have. On entering we were blown away by the decor which perfectly matched the style of the house with the added bonus of a wood burning fire which always makes it for me. Rachel (the owner) had left various notes to guide us in our stay but the items that showed just how important our stay was to her were the wonderful photo books she had created including all the details we needed about the house to make our stay trouble free and things to do in and around the area. If we hadn't known the area too well, this would have been invaluable and saved endless hours of trawling through the internet to find something to do.
We popped out for dinner but to be honest I wanted to get back to our little place and snuggle down! There were DVDs provided for us to watch and board games to play but the bed and it's soft sheets and perfect mattress were calling and I had the best night's sleep I'd had in a long time.
In the morning, after a hot, long shower with gorgeous molton brown products, we sat down to a hearty breakfast with ingredients from a local restaurant that you can opt to buy before you stay. The ingredients were top notch and even my 'foodie' husband was amazed at the quality. We left with sinking hearts, wishing that we could have stayed longer in this heavenly haven.
Thank you very much for a truly memorable stay in this unique house and environment. End to end booking and during stay communication excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Attention to detail and quality is excellent ,e.g Lovely fresh flowers , and all the extra touches were appreciated. Too many to mention but main highlights:- overall cosiness and character of house, amazing big fluffy towels, tasteful decorations, pictures, lovely wood burner although we didn't need it as house was warm ! lovely breakfast, comfy bed , lovely hot shower, (nice heated floor!) car park space was a bonus for Chichester !location to town centre an restaurants excellent, ( recommend lemongrass Thai). House and Chichester guide books were very useful and further quality ! Would strongly recommend
