Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Chichester
3 bedroom railway carriage house sleeps 6, near Selsey, West Sussex
Step back in time and enjoy nostalgia mixed with modern comforts in this unusual property, constructed over two 1926 railway carriages. The railway carriages in their original form run either side of the good-sized lounge/dining room. Situated on the beach at Selsey with fantastic sea views from the first floor lounge & balcony to as far as Brighton. Within easy walking distance of the local Bakers, Butchers and Gourmet Fish and Chips or fresh fish from the local fishermen just a two minute walk away.
All the bedrooms in our 3 bedroom home are contained within the railway carriages with original carriage doors. Lounge/Dining Room with stairs to first floor Lounge and Balcony overlooking the sea. Ground floor walk in power shower.
Enclosed garden with children’s climbing frame, rotary clothes line and private steps onto the beach.
Unlimited Broadband Internet Access.
Fishing: East beach (at the top of the garden steps!) has some popular fishing spots. The experts sit for hours trying to catch the bass, the novices wait until the summer and until the fish are jumping (you will see them from the balcony) and catch some mackerel for the barbecue.
Diving: If you are interested in scuba diving, Selsey has an active aqua club who can give lots of friendly advice. Their website intro says:
The Selsey Bill branch is a relatively new branch of the BSAC, formed in 1997 by a group of very experienced divers from the local area. Our most experienced divers can date their diving history back to the early 1970’s; some still even have their twin hose regulators hidden away. As a result we have many years of experience of diving in the local area and further afield..
We play an active part in supporting the local community through various activities and have very good contacts with both the local fishermen and the Selsey lifeboat crew; several having trained as divers with our group.
