Hobbs Farmhouse is a lovely Grade 2 listed farmhouse set within 4 acres near the hamlet of Bilsham, near Yapton.
It is 8 miles to the southeast of Chichester/Goodwood and 3 miles to the west of Arundel. Clymping beach is a few minutes drive away
Hobbs used to be a working farm. We are set within 4 acres and rent part of the land out for grazing sheep. We offer 2 rooms for Bed and Breakfast. Please note that we do not have ensuite rooms. We have a guest bathroom and this is used by both rooms.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests are free to use the dining room, breakfast room and gardens. The Duck House is an additional space for use in the summer as it is unheated!
We have a large duck pond to the front of the house. Please be mindful of both ducks and water when turning your cars. Although we do not invite children to say with us as Airbnb hosts, we are aware that guests may from time to time have family and friends to visit who may have children. The duck pond is not fenced in and children would need to be supervised at all times.
There is a hammock in the walled garden which is becoming a firm favourite with guests when the weather is good.
There is a small fridge available for guest use in a separate room. We will show you this when you arrive. Can be used for small food items/drinks.
There is a small step down to the guest bathroom from the bedrooms
which guests, particularly people with limited mobility, need to be aware of. There are 2 lights to either side of this step and a hazard strip placed as a reminder.
We have recently bought 4 hens which are free range in the walled garden. Please do not exercise your dogs there.Dogs can be exercised on leads in the front garden and off lead in a field at the back which we will show you. A farmer grazes sheep in one other field so especial care should be taken to ensure that there are no accidents when walking dogs.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are relaxed and friendly and here to offer information if needed . We know that people need their own space too and think we are sensitive to what people need!
We offer a cooked breakfast option, inclusive in the overall price, but this needs to be booked in advance the evening before for forward planning purposes. There is a tick box form in each of our rooms which can be completed to indicate timing and choices and this can be left on the dining room table.
We are happy to welcome dogs to our designated dog room on the first floor.
We have a secure walled garden in which to exercise your dog and another 3 acres for use on a lead as we let out some of the land for grazing sheep.
We have ducks on the duckpond and they don't like to be chased!
We welcome responsible dog owners and well behaved house dogs. Sorry, but no dogs that are likely to be noisy or aggressive to other dogs or people.
Dogs will not be allowed in the dining rooms if we have other guests in. If not we can waive this .
Please don't allow your dog on the bed or other furniture in the guest bedroom. We request that dogs are not left alone in the room when you go out.

Rupert and I bought Hobbs Farmhouse in 2012. We fell in love with it as soon as we followed the estate agent through the front door..and found two mallards and ducklings following us up the path! We have kept much of the character of the house -old fireplaces/bread oven/outbuildings.
My background is in Health and Social Care and Rupert is a retired naval officer.
I also work part time as a professional declutterer and organiser and am a member of the UK Association of Declutterers and Organisers ( yes there IS one!) We are not 'minimalists' and enjoy collecting items for our house. Recently we bought 'Cleopatra' - a ship's figurehead which lives in our dining room.
Rupert and I love dog walking our cocker spaniel, Molly and enjoy the occasional break away to parts of the UK neither of us has been before. We also love old buildings, best to when you live in one, and regularly visit English Heritage and National Trust properties when we get a chance.
In my spare time I try to grow the odd veggie and learn about plants. We inherited a lovely walled garden with fruit trees and bushes.
Rupert is a part time artist - seascapes, landscapes,pubs and dogs and we are on the Chichester Art Trail 2016 in April/May.
