The Corner Cottage is one of Singleton’s iconic, historic houses. Since 1731 it has housed or played host to esteemed residents and visitors to the village. Most notably Doctor Garratt OBE, MD, pioneering physician and beloved in the locale, made this his home and, somewhat setting a trend, would vacate the house during Goodwood Race Week. More recently The Corner Cottage was home to author, Ian Serraillier, equally esteemed as forward-thinking educator and best known for his international novel, The Silver Sword. Even now Singleton residents fondly remember visiting him and his family to play in the beautiful walled garden at the heart of the village. His daughter, Helen, was hugely helpful to us in the restoration of the house, recalling that jockeys would arrive in numbers to bed down in the loft on the eve of the great races.
We have made a self-contained two bedroom cottage from the wing of the house once known by the community as the village surgery. As a nod to history we have named it “The Old Surgery”.
