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.

Stunning house, perfect location

5 of 5
Two friends and I with all our children stayed here for a few nights in February half term. It's stunning - beautifully decorated and a homely house. It's got everything you'll ever need and more and we all came away saying we wished it was our home! The kids loved the house...it's warm and open plan and it's about a 20 second run to the beach which we did each morning and each evening for sunset. The Witterings are an ideal place to stay. Lovely cafes, sweet shops and the beach is magnificent. If you want a lovely house for a family or friends weekend, it's ideal. Esther is lovely and the house was immaculate when we arrived. Book it!

Great holiday in a fabulous house

5 of 5
We had a great family and friends holiday in a fabulous house which has been updated to a high standard and well equipped. The heated pool is great, very clean and it was great for us all but especially the teenagers. There is no fence around the pool so keep an eye on small children. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed eating outside on warm evenings at the dining table under the pergola. Watching films on the huge TV screen was a firm favourite late evening. The media set up, with the ability to pipe music into any of the downstairs rooms or outside was perfect. The owners were quick to answer questions we had and could not have been more helpful. Certainly somewhere we will visit again.

Comfortable and well equipped in a great location.

5 of 5
The annex was very cosy and had all we needed to make our short stay very pleasant. In a good place for lovely coastal walks, it was a pleasure to return to for the evenings; clean and furnished and finished to a high standard with extra touches such as tea, coffee, local marmalade and toiletries.
