“Rural tranquillity, urban extras”
Reviewed 5 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Harry's at Spire Cottage nearly has it all. We gave Harry's 4 out of 5, but we really wanted to make that 4 and a half. Harry's has three great attributes, a great location, a beautiful fitout and a lovely landlady in Jan. The cottage is located in farmland in the village of Hunston, on the doorstep of Chichester. You can get about on the local bus and taxis, but a car is probably needed. The village has a couple of shops and the Spotted Cow, a pub with quite a sophisticated food menu. A walk into town alongside the canal is a must. It isn't far and you get to see the view of Chichester Cathedral across the water meadows, painted by the famous artist JMW Turner between 1827 and 1831. Harry's is also well situated for visiting Portsmouth, Petworth House and Arundel Castle. Unfortunately, you'll have to put up with the congested roundabouts on the A27, but that happens to everyone. The cottage has practically everything you'll need, but we wonder about how cool it might be in the summer heat. Having Jan next door is a real bonus, for sorting out little problems or answering questions about the area. On our arrival, the smell of the freshly baked loaf in the kitchen and the jar of homemade marmalade were two of the little added extras of Harry's that made staying here thoroughly worthwhile.

“Wonderful - dog friendly - great location!”

Wow! What a stunning little place. Fresh flowers on the table, freshly baked bread, home made marmalade, lots of little extras that made it a 'special' holiday home. Ideal location, close to Chichester but down a peaceful lane so no noise at all apart from the birds! The garden is fenced so safe for our dog which was great. Walking distance to a couple of shops and a lovely village pub. Would highly recommend and we wouldn't hesitate in staying here again if in the area! Thanks Jan!

We were spending two weeks here from where we live in Spain. The whole reason for visiting the area was to try to get my husband to move back to the UK..... the weather put an end to that ! We are both really glad to be on the ferry heading south. The highlight of the whole trip was Harry's. The bad weather didn't matter. Jan was brilliant, helpful but very much respecting our privacy. Everything at Harry's was top class and we were greeted with flowers, wine, hot bread and other "goodies". Thank you Jan. Our little rescue dog, Charlie, was made to feel very welcome and Jan's own dogs were lovely ...... if you stay be prepared for ball throwing! We would like to return some time if only to put up the very smart parasol !

“Excellent holiday rental”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This very tidy, modern, clean property has everything you will need. Great location near Chichester, every amenity you could want, also dog friendly, our cockapoo loved it.
Nice big bed and large shower, even supplied with yummy home made bread and marmalade. Enjoyed throwing ball for Oliver over the fence. Also Netflix is very handy, would stay again in a heartbeat.

What a lovely place. Very modern and stylish accommodation in an unspoilt rural location. An excellent base for visiting the many attractions in the area. We felt very much at home during our stay. Would not hesitate in staying again when visiting the area.
