The bluebell or “Hyacinthoides non-scripta” is a bulbous perennial plant, found in Atlantic areas from north-western Spain to the British Isles. It is known in English as the common bluebell or simply bluebell.
With half term coming up we have been investigating all the great things on offer in the local area for our little guests...
Here's to another fabulous year of events in and around Sussex starting with the Constable exhibition at Petworth House!
After having a number of guests to stay who are taking part in clay pigeon shooting events, our daughter invited some friends over to have a bash and see what all the fuss is about...
It seems I chose a very wet Sunday to go to Parham House for the deer spotting and foraging event last weekend but I wasn't going to let a little English rain put me off...
With the summer days still here it is hard to imagine that the delicious "game season" is just round the corner; meaning our specials menu will be fuelled with locally sourced game. Last year our West Sussex venison went down a storm so we will have that on the menu again.
With the weather warming up, I thought it would be a good time to write about our lovely local beaches - especially as 2 of them have just won blue flag awards (http://www.blueflag.org/Menu/Criteria) for the cleanest beaches in England - Littlehampton and West Wittering!
With summer well under way and the weather looking good for the foreseeable future there are lots of things to do locally over the next few weeks on the doorstep of Chequers Hotel Pulborough!
- West Wittering
- East Wittering
- Festival of speed
- Glorious Goodwood
- Goodwood Revival
- West Chiltington
- Summer holidays
- River Arun

Given that Chequers is centrally located in the foothills of the South Downs National Park we thought it was high time we had something to say about it!
