The front door opens into a little lobby; off it, opposite, is the utility room/downstairs loo, and on the right, the kitchen, presided over by a large stuffed trout over the sink. The walls are pale green, there are terracotta tiles on the floor and the curtains are off white. There’s a sturdy pine table, big enough for snacks and informal meals, and all the machines and gadgets you could want. The worktops are granite and there’s a Belfast sink. Opening out of the kitchen are the stairs leading to the first floor, and the 19′ square drawing-room/dining-room.
It’s painted a cool off-white, with thick ochre curtains at its four windows. Fabrics are olive green, yellow and off-white; Colefax and Fowler velvet on one of the chairs, a grey-green and white striped sofa, a lime green buttoned high backed Victorian two seater, and fungly greens on the needlepoint rug in front of the open fire. To the right is a green-and-white painted bookcase, and on the left of the room, by the circular mahogany pedestal dining-table, an antique Irish dresser is packed with Masons Ironstone dishes. There’s also a large, handsome desk.
Opposite the fireplace, a door opens into a trellised passage in the courtyard: down some steps and you are in the garden.
At one end of the corridor above is the master bedroom, its handsome mahogany four-poster hung in white. The ensuite shower-room is white-tiled from floor to ceiling and has a vast washstand running its entire length, with a battery of film-star-dressing-room lights around the enormous wall-to-wall mirror, just to emphasise the difference between luxury cottages and any other kind. Like non-luxury cottages, for example.
At the other end of the corridor, there’s a twin-bedded room with two handsome wrought iron beds and several black-and-white prints.
In the middle is the single bedroom with a faux bamboo four-poster bed curtained in white and papered in Colefax and Fowler Chinese Peony, in pale green and white. They share a bathroom, which has a power shower, lavatory and washstand.
Goodwood has its own enclosed garden, with a lawn, yew hedges and terrace with garden furniture, umbrella and barbeque; it is surrounded by yellow and cream roses, honeysuckle, and lilies. It faces south-east towards the entrance of the Abbey, which is framed by two enormous copper sycamore trees. Opposite the terrace is a romantic arbour, with its back to the yew hedge.
