Wow! Hearing that amazing roar as The Red Arrows hurtle past my office window as Goodwood’s Festival of Speed gets into full swing has just reminded me of a feature I wrote a couple of years ago for Build It magazine. At the time, self-builder Jeff Dobbie had just finished an amazing project. This involved knocking down a property he referred to as “like something from The Amityville Horror” and replacing it with this smart family home (pictured) blending seamlessly into the surrounding West Sussex countryside.
Since meeting the amiable Jeff, he has taken another step along the self-build route and converted a garage block into a rather lovely B & B called Bex Lodge Studio. Now, anyone who lives in the Chichester area can tell you that finding available B & B accommodation during The Festival of Speed is pretty tricky and, I would imagine, that Bex Lodge is already booked up this weekend. However, it’s definitely somewhere to bear in mind for future Goodwood events and, of course, other times of the year.
