On the outskirts of a ‘delightful’ village of ancient inns and medieval buildings, this ‘handsome’, ‘extensively modernised’ old farmhouse stands in ‘well-maintained’ ornamental gardens, with ‘many secluded spots in which to read or enjoy some privacy’.
‘The warmth of the welcome, the good food, the atmosphere and the unspoilt environs are hard to beat,’ writes a regular Guide correspondent in 2016, of the Wild family’s hotel in a ‘charming’ village near Chichester harbour.
Near the gates of Waddesdon Manor, this half-timbered, ornately patterned Grade II listed building was built in 1887 to house the architects and craftsmen working on the manor itself. Today a hotel with ‘comfortable’, smartly styled bedrooms, it is run by the Rothschild family trust for the National Trust.
‘Top of its class’, this ‘wonderful’, well-run country house hotel and spa beneath the South Downs wins praise from guests who appreciate the ‘beautiful’, ‘well-maintained’ grounds and the ‘intimate’, ‘relaxed’ atmosphere within.
Beloved for its ‘wonderfully old-fashioned’ aura, this ‘majestic’, ‘splendidly luxurious’ Victorian hotel exults on the seafront, basking in the praise of ardent fans who have long lobbied for a full entry in the Guide.
The scene gets to the rustic heart of village life: in Sarah and Charles Ullmann’s ‘popular, stylish’ early-19th-century inn, find oak beams, flint walls, leather armchairs, fresh flowers and, on cold days, a blazing fire.

The South and those who live there are seen as a bit soft by the rest of Britain. The weather is a few degrees warmer, the landscapes are softer, and the beaches in the summer are filled with holidaymakers. You can go hunting for fossils along the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, work out how they built Stonehenge, and wander around the Palladian architecture of Bath. There is much to see from the castles at Windsor, Leeds, Hever, and Bodium to hundreds of miles of coastline filled with superb beaches.
