Overview

About the property

6 bedroom house, sleeping 12-15 people. Perfect for Goodwood.

Beach House offers a way to have an all year round unforgettable family holiday. The house boasts some of the best views available on the beautiful West Sussex coastline looking over to the Isle of Wight. This stunning 6 bedroom coastal house sleeps 12-14, (with all except one room being en-suite). The property can facilitate a different mixture of people staying, from large families to perhaps two families or groups of friends sharing. A light, open plan living room with gas fire, TV with DVD’s, CD’s, books, and games. The well equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher, gas cooker, double oven, large fridge/freezer, microwave and coffee machine. This leads to a informal dining space, there is also a separate dining room. The French doors open onto the patio with garden furniture and BBQ, and you can access the beach in less than a minute. Upstairs there are 3 large double rooms, 1 twin with a (double) day bed, a double sleeper bunk room and single. Not forgetting to mention the sauna

Selsey offers quiet, clean beaches for swimming, diving, windsurfing, fishing, fossil hunting, making sandcastles or just looking out over the view to the Isle of Wight. The famous East and West Witterings are also just 20 and 40 minutes beach walk away. One of the main local attractions is Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve, (just a short walk along East Beach shore) for the south coast’s finest bird watching, which has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Selsey village shops, takeaways, restaurants and other amenities can provide a relatively car free holiday if you choose. West Selsey has a leisure complex with 2 superb pools, slides, gym and a funfair. A walk around the RNLI Lifeboat itself shouldn't be missed. The nearby golf clubs provide challenging rounds. For the active, Selsey has a diving school and nearby sailing, mountain biking and boarding, water-skiing, wind surfing, hiking and horse riding can all be arranged. Selsey also hosts the Selsey Festival, Lifeboat Week, Firework Night and the Christmas Parade.

Chichester Cathedral is a sight not to be missed as well as world-famous local events and areas such as Chichester Festival, Glorious Goodwood, Festival of Speed, Chichester Festival Theatre, Fontwell and Goodwood Races, the South Downs, Weald & Downland Museum, West Dean Gardens, Brighton and many other possibilities. Venturing a little further afield, a day trip to the Isle of Wight is highly recommended as is Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth, a retail outlet with many bars and restaurants.

The house is also great as a base to visit other locations in Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey etc. London is also only an hour and a half away, easily accessible by train or car.

A beautiful house that created lots of family memories

  • 4 of 5

With 6 adults and 8 children we needed lots of space and that's what we got! A few things could have been improved - the garden would have been great if it wasn't such a wasteland (the drop on to the beach made it unsuitable for little ones to play) including decent furniture to enjoy BBQ's outside, the Wi-Fi was so inconsistent but we wanted to research days out so this was frustrating plus we had one very rainy day so stayed in but the tv system was so dated it was impossible to work out! Communication was hit and miss with the owner but when the freezer broke on the first day and we informed her, I wasn't expecting to not hear from her again after her text. For 14 people a freezer would have been helpful so we were thinking it would be fixed. The double room with day bed had no opening windows in anything but the bathroom - it got so hot in there that we had to put children to bed in other rooms and move them in later in the night. Finally, the dishwasher was useless and I don't think it had been used for months - I wasn't expecting to wash up after every meal for 14 people - we had to do it in 2 sessions to fit everything on the drainer.

Overall we had a lovely week away and would happily visit again knowing what we now know. The rest of the house was very clean and tidy - the bathrooms were immaculate and the shower downstairs was very useful post beach! It was really appreciated that the towels were provided and that there was enough seating for us all. My children all loved the spiral staircases and were elated with the games room! Hide and seek was enjoyed by all. Finally, the view was enough to outweigh any issues we may have had. A fantastic week away!

Fantastic home from home with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with stunning views. We stayed here for 50th wedding anniversary celebrations and had a wonderful time. The house is huge, suitable for young and old and great for the dogs. The owners made sure we had everything we needed and the house is fully equipped.

Car: recommended

Selsey has an old fashioned feel to it, yet still has everything that you could need. Located just 8 miles outside of Chichester, this really can be a holiday where you get away from it all or are active everyday, the possibilities are endless. The famous East and West Witterings are also just 20 and 40 minutes beach walk away. One of the main local attractions is Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve, (just a short walk along East Beach) for the south coast’s finest bird watching- which has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the local area there is also The Roman Palace at Fishbourne, Haredown Mountain Boarding, Goodwood Hotel, Spa and Golf Club, Paultons Park, Fishers Farm, the South Downs and countless other possibilities. The house is great as a base to visit other locations in Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey etc. London is also only an hour and a half away, easily accessible by train or car.
