THE PROPERTY

A beautifully presented period cottage set in just over two acres of garden and grounds and within easy travelling distance of both the coast and Chichester harbour. Trading as a motorhome and caravan campsite, this property offers an ideal opportunity for those looking for a lifestyle change or with home and income business. Fieldgate Campsite is ideally situated some five miles to the south of the cathedral city of Chichester and within a convenient distance of Chichester harbour, the beaches of West Wittering and harbourside walks around Pagham Nature Reserve. The house itself is a pretty period cottage which has been sensitively updated and improved, creating a welcoming home of great character. The sitting/dining room is over 23' in length with an attractive fireplace fitted with woodburning stove. The central hallway has a cloakroom and provides access to the dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room, with a good range of fitted units, integrated appliances and breakfast bar. A second fireplace with woodburning stove also makes this a very welcoming and cosy room. On the first floor there are three bedrooms with shower room en-suite to the main bedroom and a well appointed bathroom. Outside a low brick wall encloses the front of the property with a parking area to the north of the house, which also provides access to the garage, outbuildings and caravan park beyond. The immediate garden around the cottage has two sheltered sitting areas and stone shingle pathways leading to a productive area of kitchen garden planted with soft fruits. A brick and stone built garden store provides useful storage for garden tools. Campsite Licences have been granted from both the Caravan and Motorhome Club and Chichester District Council, allowing for a maximum of eleven pitches, five of which have a twelve month licence and six a licence between March and the end of October. A garage and garage/workshop provide ample storage for ground keeping equipment, tractor mower storage and workshop. A shower block provides a changing area, two shower rooms and a cloakroom. In all the property amounts to some two acres. For further details regarding the campsite business, please contact this office.
