Goodwood is on the right-hand side of the courtyard as you go in, and is one of the two cottages built originally for the stable grooms. It is warm, inviting and cosy, without being either cramped or twee.
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.
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.
