Wakeham won the Country Life 'House of the Year' award. It is set in the middle of our farm, with multiple woods, valleys & a river. It is a minimalist house in a classical shell. Its core is a triple-height atrium wrapped around by balconies which lead to the bedrooms. It has a 12ft deep pool, a shallow pool for beginners, a tennis court, and a brilliant sandpit. It is very good value compared to other local houses. I enjoy Airbnb & it's sense of community and this is a chance to give back.

Lo spazio
This is a lived-in house, not a property set up mainly for rent - so it has family photographs all over the place. Just at the moment it also needs minor repairs and redecoration, which will happen over the winter and spring. It is not a hotel! But it has striking architecture, is in very good condition, and most people love it. It is suitable for families but not for toddlers - it has hard slate floors to fall on, plain coloured walls that don't want to be marked or scuffed, a glass table in the atrium, and so on.

The atrium and kitchen are the main living spaces. The study is small - a big desk and two comfortable chairs and a small fireplace, plus a TV with a Freeview box and an Apple TV box. The atrium is triple-height, and large. In bad weather there are two open fires, including a huge fireplace in the atrium - and the underfloor heating works well. There are lots and lots of books, ranging from thrillers to philosophy (and there is also a large children's book section) - please put them back on the shelves where you find them!

The kitchen (which seats 9) is extremely well equipped with top of the range Miele kitchen machinery, assorted other machines, and plain white porcelain crockery. In decent weather you can eat under the portico which leads directly from the kitchen, and where we have put a large table.

Upstairs, one double room has an en-suite bath and the other an en-suite shower. They are well set up with Egyptian cotton sheets, and comfortable pillows. The bunk rooms - one of which is set up as close to a 1950s spaceship as I can manage, and decorated with a lot of pictures from the Dan Dare strip of that era - each contain bunk beds for two children (or very tolerant adults). The bunk rooms share a family shower and WC.

There is also a downstairs toilet, and one in the external laundry/utility room.

Dove ti troverai

Rogate, Inghilterra, Regno Unito

This house is in the South Downs national park and has stunning views of the Downs as well as of its own farm. It's in easy range of Goodwood and of Polo at Cowdray, and Midhurst and Petersfield have a good range of restaurants and coffee shops.

It is about half an hour's drive to Chichester (with the Festival Theatre) and 40 minutes to Winchester. Good wet weather activities nearby are Fishborne Roman Palace near Chichester, and the National Trust properties at Petworth and Uppark (and the very over-priced antique shops in Petworth, to browse if not to buy).

If you have not already done it, going around HMS Victory in her dry dock in Portsmouth is really worth while - you can get right down into the bottom of the hull - and there is a submarine museum in Gosport that I have never been to but which ought to be very good.

Lavant Street in Petersfield has an excellent independent greengrocer and butcher. Cowdray farm shop in Easebourne (just beyond Midhurst in A272) is a simply amazing food supplier/delicatessen with a huge range of everything you could possibly need, often organic, though it is pretty expensive. The Hungry Guest in Petworth is also a very good delicatessen and has now added a butcher's shop and a fishmonger of its own.

The farm shop and Café at Durleighmarsh - about one mile west of Rogate on the north of the A272 (look for signs on main road) - has a good range, is very close, and a fresh fishmonger is there two days a week

Durante il tuo soggiorno

I live here a lot of the time. We will leave the house really clean for you when you arrive and we ask that you leave it as you found it, when you leave. I am available on the phone or by email , and am seldom more than a couple of hours drive away. Other family members live elsewhere on the farm.
