Make a holiday cottage in West Sussex your home away from home

Dominated by a beautiful coastline and South Downs National Park, it comes as little surprise that West Sussex is a popular holiday destination. It spans the coastline from the picturesque town of Chichester east to Shoreham-by-Sea, stopping just short of Brighton. A holiday in this part of the UK offers an ideal blend of coastal and countryside attractions all in one compact space.

HomeAway has a very good selection of holiday cottages in West Sussex to choose from. They start from as little as £175 per week (for holiday homes in Chichester for example), which is a relative bargain in the area. Most of the West Sussex holiday cottages on offer range from town apartments to sprawling cottages by the sea, with a range of one to four bedrooms; families will find plenty of rentals that sleep four or more people. In addition to being fully furnished, certain rentals boast an extra set of amenities that can include a swimming pool, BBQ, or the ability to accommodate pets.

Things to do

-Beaches: West Sussex is home to some of the best beaches on the South Coast. West Wittering Beach is a good place to start. Located near Chichester, the sandy Blue Flag beach offers stunning views of Chichester Harbour and is a favourite place of wind and kitesurfers. Selsey Beach is another popular beach and represents the southern tip of West Sussex. It stretches for eight miles and is a wonderful place to walk. Other beaches in West Sussex that are sure to please are Littlehampton Beach, Bracklesham Beach, and Climping Beach.

-Outdoor activities: Visitors staying in a West Sussex holiday cottage have all the beauty and splendour of South Downs National Park at their doorstep. Those staying in towns like Arundel or holiday homes in Bognor Regis, for example, can enjoy easy access to the park. Closer to Chichester, holidaymakers can visit the Kingley Vale Nature Reserve, which is home to a remarkable forest with trees up to 2,000 years old.

-Family attractions: Butlins at Bognor Regis boasts a waterpark and fairground that are perfect for a day out with the kids. Children will also enjoy a trip to Hayling Island to play on the beach and take a ride on the Hayling Seaside Railway. Over in Arundel, the stately Arundel castle is a fun place to visit as a family.

-Culture: The Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester is a major event on the cultural calendar of West Sussex and is held over the course of four days in late June or early July. And don’t forget the racecourse hosts Glorious Goodwood, but also has a full calendar of meets. Visitors staying in a West Sussex holiday cottage closer to Brighton can easily enjoy everything the exciting seaside town has to offer. Throughout the summer months, Brighton hosts a number of festivals like the Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe Festival.

It was also very well equipped and more ! The welcome package was very much appreciated from the lovely owners, Jo and Gavin. It was tucked away in a side street off the High Street, so very convenient for the shops and walk to restaurants and pubs. A pretty garden to relax in after a day's outing was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended .

We were made to feel very welcome, with excellent communication and advice from Jo (the owner) both before and during the trip. The house itself is perfect (even bigger than it looks in the photos!) It is well appointed, with ample space for cooking, dining and relaxing. The beds are comfy and the showers are great - all very welcome for a weekend break. We were unlucky with the weather so weren't able to make the most of the incredible grounds, but the peaceful setting was appreciated nonetheless. The house is well sited for a number of easier and longer walks. The local pub is well worth a visit too (good for a rainy day). On the whole we would definitely recommend the property. We had a fantastic weekend and hope to return again very soon!

Compact but plenty space for a holiday cottage. Description a bit misleading but didn't cause a problem. Very comfortable bed. Spotless bathroom!
