Enjoy a classic weekend away with a difference in the fantastic Swimming Pool Retreat - unique holiday accommodation within the South Downs National Park. The Swimming Pool Retreat is finished and presented to a very good standard. Where else would you find your own indoor private pool lined with individual mosaic tiles with your own home wrapped around it? With a Brazilian slate floor surrounding this amazing centrepiece and granite work surfaces in the kitchen area, this is accommodation that lends itself perfectly to weekends or short breaks away for two people wanting something just a bit special and exclusive and it is not available for bookings longer than six nights. The accommodation is kept at a controlled temperature making it comfortable throughout both the winter and summer.

Located in the ground of the owners’ home in Slindon Wood, a 1400-hectare estate, the garden is occupied with two alpacas. Today it is owned by the National Trust. Within the Estate, there are over 30 miles of rights of way that criss-cross the estate to explore. Included within this is Stane Street, the Roman road linking London with Chichester, offering a particularly picturesque walk through the woods from Eartham to the top of the South Downs at Bignor where it meets the South Downs Way.

The village of Slindon is only a mile away and as it also comes under the care of the National Trust there is a strong emphasis on maintaining the tradition and resisting unnecessary change. Visit in October or November for the famous Pumpkin Festival held at Pumpkin Cottage! The Swimming Pool Retreat is in the perfect location for the premier motorsport events at Goodwood as well as of course Glorious Goodwood. Just over three miles to the east of Goodwood it is within a ten-minute drive taking in some of the most beautiful country roads over the Downs. The beaches at Climping and Bognor Regis are within five miles. Climping is a beautiful unspoilt length of beach of Special Scientific Interest. A short distance to the east from Slindon Arundel is a historic market town dominated by the symbolic castle and the rising spire of the cathedral. It offers a plethora of craft and antique shops as well as restaurants and tearooms.
