What makes this house unique

Simply put, we feel that holiday time is precious and we personally would not like to stay anywhere where comfort is compromised by providing tempur mattresses, high quality bed linen, bone china etc....you will find an eclectic mix of vintage and new which adds character to this beautiful seaside home.

Lovely house, very well equipped and the perfect location for our big family get together.

  • 4 of 5

Totally secure garden meant that the dogs were safe when let out. Loved the Aga ....made the house so cosy to come back to after a good days walking/cycling although a few basic operating instructions would have helped with the timings for our cooking! Everyone slept soundly in lovely bedding. A really great long weekend break ......thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area and would love to return. Very helpful owners when we had a problem locating house keys upon arrival!

Chic little home near the sea

  • 4 of 5

A real home from home. Comfortable, well equipped and airy. A short walk from the beach and local shops makes this house the ideal location whilst remaining private and quiet.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and just loved it. The house is equipped with everything you need and is great for family dinners and entertaining. I bet the house is even more stunning in summer!

American and English family get together

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as we expected from the listing information and very well maintained with comfortable beds which was important to a bunch of old people. The East Wittering village was just round the corner from the house with a great pub and very good restaurants. Not having to drive to pubs or restaurants was perfect. I would certainly recommend this property for family of all age's.

A bit too "Shabby Chic"

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped property. A bit too "Shabby Chic" for me and twin bedroom very small for 2 single beds. Also no instructions for using Aga cooker and as Aga on all the time it was very warm in the kitchen but we did have a very hot week.

If holidaying with very young children the aga could burn little hands.
