At Two Rose Cottages there are two individually-designed double bedrooms: the Cobden Room with en-suite bathroom and shower; and the Wells Room with en-suite shower room.
Each room has a generous hospitality tray, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen freeview TV, iron and ironing board, dressing gowns, hot water bottle, nightlight, toiletries (shampoo, lotion, bodywash) and other comforts.
The Cobden Room is distinctly vintage, but nevertheless totally up-to date in all its carefully-planned details. At the rear of the house, it overlooks the garden, a huge old oak tree and South Pond. The gentle night sounds of the bird-life around the pond are very soothing.
It has a lovely en-suite bathroom with shower, and hand-stenciled blackberries trailing across the walls.
The Cobden Room is named for the great modernizing Victorian, Richard Cobden, the driving force behind the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1832. He was born near Midhurst, educated in its famous Grammar School, and buried within walking distance of Two Rose Cottages, in nearby West Lavington’s mysterious, Gothic churchyard.
The Wells Room has a distinctly contemporary feel, with brushed steel and stripped beech, although it completely respects the simple traditional character of the cottage.
The room is at the front of the house, where it receives the morning sun. The road outside has only light traffic, and opposite is extensive woodland, where the owls and foxes call at night.
It has a fully-equipped full-size en-suite shower room.
The Wells Room is named for H.G. Wells, the father of science fiction and Midhurst’s most famous son. You will find books by H.G. Wells in our little library, or maybe even on your bedside table.
