great location right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a fantastic location in Pagham and right on the beach. Our toddler loved the railway carriages, and the inside of the property was clean, well maintained and suited our needs.

The railway carriage house was really unique.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and the welcome tea, coffee, milk and sugar. (The property gardens would benefit from a bit of weeding to make it that extra bit luxurious). The house was clean and comfortable and we'd definitely recommend it to others, but not too many people, so that we could save the availablility for our return visits. The location is very sort after because it's right on the beach.

The local activities were a bit limited...the boot sale consisted of one stall and the amusement arcades were a bit shabby and worn out. The cafe was pleasant though. There's a few handy shops and choices of takeaway as well as some traditional pubs within a few minutes driving distance. Our main reason for staying in the area was fulfilled - our visit to Arundel Castle so we were happy.

Fantastic place for a peaceful break

This is now our third time of visiting Oceanswell, it has the most amazing location and is a truly wonderful place to spend some time by the Sea.

Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Ocean swell - a unique experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 3 children) stayed there for one week.

Arriving, we found some coffee, tea, cookies , a bottle of red wine and useful informations how to manage our stay in ocean swell,

Everything was as expected and described in the advert. The cottage is lovely, rooms are unique and airy and everthing is painted with nice colours - kind of 'caribian'?

Just a few steps out of the garden you will find the sea and miles of beatiful beach on both sides. We had superb weather, but there were only a few people on the beach - very comfortable after 3 days in London

Basic facilities (store, pharmacy, fastfood..) are accessible by foot, anything else in Chichester or Bangor Regis by car.

All in all a great stay - thanks to Sabina.

Oceanswell - A swell experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I has a great time at Oceanswell. As we where told, you walk to the end of the garden and then your are on the beach, 25 yards from the sea - brilliant.

We walk a lot as a family and so one day we walked to Bognor Regis along the beach, another day round the harbour to Sidlesham

Also Days out to Chichester, Selsey & Singleton.

All in all I would have to say that we enjoyed our selves, and will certainly think about revisiting in the future

A lovely bungalow with the sea on your doorstep

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday in this charming bungalow. Everything was as described in the advert. Everything inside was decorated with taste and lovely colours, and the rooms with railway carriage features were particularly nice. It was also spacious enough for a family of five.

The owner was very welcoming as we had some milk, tea, coffee and delicious cookies waiting for us on the day of our arrival. It was great to have the beach at the end of the garden and Pagham harbour, which is not far away, was beautiful. I will recommend this place to friends and family, as all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ocean Swell.
