Make a self catering cottage in Chichester your home away from home

Situated behind a stunning natural harbour between Portsmouth and Brighton, Chichester is an exciting holiday town that offers a bit of the city, country, and coast all in one destination. Just over an hour away from London by train and car, Chichester benefits from having all the modern amenities of a city without all the fuss and the overwhelming size. The town is perhaps best known for its racecourse and Glorious Goodwood, and for hosting the Goodwood Festival of Speed each year, but will appeal to non-motoring enthusiasts as well thanks to a wide assortment of family-friendly attractions, history, beautiful countryside, and stunning beaches.

HomeAway has a number of beautiful holiday cottages in Chichester to choose from. Weekly rates begin at just £275, which is competitive with similar holiday apartments in Brighton and other south coast locations. Select rentals are also available on a nightly basis. Chichester holiday homes range from one to three or more bedroomed properties and can easily accommodate groups of six or more. In addition to being fully furnished, many rentals are pet friendly and enjoy easy access to the coast.

Things to do

-Beaches: Chichester self catering rentals are close to two Blue Flag beaches. The closest is West Wittering Beach, which features lovely views of South Downs and Chichester Harbour and features a lifeguard on duty in the summer months. Also within ten miles of Chichester is Hayling Island Beach. Very popular with visitors in Portsmouth holiday homes and Chichester and beyond, Hayling Island is a popular sailing destination and offers great days out for the family.

-Culture: The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the biggest event of the year in Chichester. Held in late June or July, the festival brings together vintage cars in a series of races. Supercars and F1 cars make regular appearances at Goodwood, adding to its appeal. In total the festival attracts well over 100,000 visitors each year and is one of the biggest events in the British motoring calendar. The horse-racing festival, Glorious Goodwood, held on the last weekend of July, is an opportunity to see power, speed and racing of the four-legged kind.

-Family attractions: The South Downs Planetarium and Science Centre is a fun and educational place to take children of all ages. It hosts special shows on almost a daily basis and will get kids excited about space and astronomy. Another excellent spot for the family to visit is the Fishbourne Roman Palace, which is the largest Roman home in Britain and surrounded by beautiful gardens.

-Outdoor activities: Chichester holiday homes sit between the Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and South Downs National Park. Both places are havens for wildlife and are great places to explore the outdoors either on foot or on a bicycle. Within South Downs National Park is Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve. The reserve is home to some of the oldest trees in the UK, some of which are 2,000 years old.

The accommodation is really well laid out and decorated to a very high standard with plenty of homely touches and spotlessly clean. We loved the place and the kids loved it too. It was perfect for our short stop over the weekend and the hosts are on hand if you need any help. The location was ideal with yachts sailing past at the bottom of the road and located only minutes from the local pub. Itchenor is a lovely little place an ideal spot for a weekend away especially if you have nautical tendencies. The beach at Wittering also makes a great day out for the kinds with miles of clean sand......all in all a perfect weekend break was had by all........

We were delighted with the property which was exactly as described on the website. It was beautifully presented, very comfortable and had everything we needed. Cate and Fred were very welcoming and helpful. We are an older couple and we were happy that it was single level with car parking at the door and the fact that it was in the pretty little village of Halnaker not far from Chichester suited us perfectly. There was lots to do and see around Chichester which is a really lovely city. It is in a perfect position for anyone wanting to visit Goodwood. For us it was a perfect end to our holiday as we were able to relax before setting off to Heathrow for the long flight back to Australia. Thank you Cate and Fred.

Everything you could want and more - well appointed house, a stones throw from the sea and a private well maintained garden. Correspondence from Shaun and Russell in the run up to our holiday was excellent and little touches such as homemade scones made it extra special. A hidden gem and we can't wait to return - thank you!
