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.

Bosham Habour

The exceptional quality you of can expect from the new-to-market Millstream Cottage can be gleaned from the hundreds of 5-star reviews awarded to our Paris, London & South of France holiday rentals. Here’s a sampling!

- Paula

Doesn’t gets any better than this!

I can almost guarantee that you will not receive the level of attention, quick responses, a detailed overview of the unit, and the full amenities that this place offers unless you are staying in a 5 star 1k+ a night hotel/property. Paula’s unit is what made our trip what it was. See the review on VRBO.

Jeremy L, Madison, Wisconsin (USA)

Exceptional Flat in London

Our experience with Paula at Greenhaven has set the bar very high for other properties and experiences. From prior to our arrival and continuing throughout our stay– which had to be unexpectedly extended– Paula was a fabulous host. Paula’s place is clean, well organized, highly functional and beautiful. See review on VRBO.

Beth R

Beautiful property & lovely owner

We have used VRBO to reserve properties all over the world, so we have some experience. This property was in the top and we loved the entire experience, starting with the email interaction with Paula to secure the property. The apartment is lovely and exactly as advertised. Perfect location, great amenities, and really thoughtful little touches to make the stay so special. See the review on VRBO
