Early History of the Millstream

Bosham has been inhabited since Roman times, and is close to the famous villa at Fishbourne. The Romans were responsible for the village’s millstream as there was no fresh water, and built a basilica there. In 850, the original village church was built on the site of the Roman basilica, and in the tenth century was replaced with Holy Trinity Church, situated beside Bosham Quay, that still serves as the local place of worship. There is a tradition that a daughter of Canute the Great drowned in the millstream and was buried here, although there seems to be little evidence for this. (Canute had a palace in the village.) Legend has it that Bosham was the site at which he commanded the waves to “go back”, so as to demonstrate to his overly deferential courtiers the limits of a King’s powers.


Delightful & quiet

Millstream Cottage is situated in a delightful and quiet location within the center of a historic village a few houses down from the Millstream Hotel with its nice dining facilities. “Old Bosham” has a fascinating history—take a five-minute walk to Saxon church, where the chancel is featured in the Bayeux Tapestry. For venturing out and just 4.5 miles away, the historic cathedral city of Chichester boasts extensive shopping facilities, plus a variety of social and recreational activities in a quaint hamlet setting. Find a sports centre with swimming pool, multi-screen cinema, plus numerous casual to fine dining options. For cultural pursuits, visit the award winning Pallant House Gallery and the renowned Festival Theatre.

Boutique hotel quality with comfortable

At Millstream Cottage you really can have it all: boutique hotel quality with comfortable, spacious and flexible self-catering. We were delighted to have such a well-stocked kitchen with every conceivable appliance and gadget along with plenty of essential ingredients, including herbs, spices, oils, vinegars & sea salt. There’s a lovely tranquil seating area outside next to a stream with resident ducks, which is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening sun.. See the review on Airbnb.

Beautiful property & lovely owner

This is a lovely luxurious cottage a short walk to the beautiful Bosham Quay. The house is tastefully furnished with lots of lovely details, including massage cushions. We have rarely stayed in a holiday cottage done to such a high standard. Paula is a talented host with a good eye for detail. See the review on Airbnb

Bosham is a village rich in history

My parents and I had such a nice time celebrating my Mum’s birthday at Millstream Cottage. Bosham is a village rich in history, and we appreciated it more by staying a few days at this relaxing home that had everything we needed. See the review on Airbnb

Millstream Cottage is perfect

Millstream Cottage is perfect. Clean, tasteful, clear instructions and a premium level is sustained throughout the property. Even though we only stayed for three nights and didn’t need to cook, I looked through the cupboards the level of detail is second to none. See the review on Airbnb
