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.

The provisions they supplied were by far the most generous of any other accommodation we've let! Our grandson had a great time using the tennis court and the 3 bathrooms made getting ready very easy with 5 of us in the let. Also have to recommend the Star and Garter in East Dean.

The owner Sarah ensured that all the arrangements went smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble, even a very late request that allowed our stay to come to an even more leisurely and enjoyable We chose Kate's Kitchen who prepared a delicious meal for us on the Saturday evening. She also recommended a number of eating places. The Bluebird Café is good for lunch. It is a 20 minute stroll along the beach path. We finished our week end with a meal at The Lamb in Angmerring village where the food and service was excellent. The Rocks itself is a beautiful house in an idyllic setting. The décor is high end and gives guests a sense of occasion. There was plenty of space for everyone with lovely bedrooms and en suite bathrooms. As "guests of honour" we had the first floor suite. The views from the spacious veranda onto the beach and across the shore are wonderful and very relaxing. The Rocks is a first class house that would add to any celebration. We all had a very enjoyable and memorable time.

The cottage is clean and fresh-looking, well appointed and comfortable. Equipment and bedlinen were immaculate. There is good use of space and all our party (eight of us) were delighted with our stay. Jo was accessible, pleasant and accommodating. I recommend this place without reservation.
