The Perfect Pit Stop For Your South Downs Journey

Goodbye & Farewell 

We have made the very sad decision to finally close down our Bed & Breakfast after 30+ years

We would like to thank each and every one of our lovely guests that have stayed with us over the years. 

We will no longer be taking anymore bookings with immediate effect. All existing bookings will still be going ahead as planned.

Thank you all once again for letting our little B&B thrive for so long, but it is now time to enjoy our retirement 

Kind Regards


About image

Harkaway is our small family-run guest house situated at the foot of the South Downs, just ½ mile from the South Downs Way in the heart of the beautiful village of Bury. We have 3 bedrooms accommodating up to 5 guests in total. We offer a full English, vegetarian or continental breakfast. Our guests have their own entrance and drinks-making facilities are freely available. Flat screen TV in guest dining room. Harkaway is open all year round and is a non- smoking house.

Bury is a tranquil village nestled at the foot of the South Downs. It is an ideal location as a base for walking and cycling, with numerous footpaths and bridleways just a stones throw away. We have plenty of space in our locked garage to store your bikes when cycling the South Downs Way.
Many other attractions are just a short drive away, including the spectacular Arundel Castle and the historic Goodwood Racecourse
