In the heart of historic Chichsester, The Old Grocery offers luxurious self-catering accommodation within easy walking distance of independent shops and restaurants. We offer a truly personal ‘home from home’ experience, perfect for an unforgettable getaway.

The Old Grocery gets its name from the local census from 1871 onwards which shows a local grocer, Mr Henry Stoner, his wife Charlotte and their lodger Mr Harris, the grocer’s assistant, lived at the house. The property has been beautifully refurbished & now offers luxurious accommodation to provide a tranquil and indulgent holiday experience.

The stylish living room is great for unwinding in with friends or family after a busy day sightseeing. Watch your favourite show on the large widescreen smart TV and DVD/Blu player. We also offer a brilliant variety of board games for some evening fun.
