About Jackie Rippon
We are a normal family who enjoy spending time away from the hustle and bustle of modern working life. Getting away from it all is number one on our list of priorities and being spoilt comes a close second!
Jackie Rippon purchased this Bungalow in 2015
Why Jackie Rippon chose Earnley
We love this area of the South Coast as it boast some great facilities and things to do, it really does cater for all! Everything you need only a short distance away. Located in a great Holiday Village site, the Chalet is only 2 miles from a brilliant sandy beach and the surrounding countryside is beautiful and peaceful but not too sleepy! Easy to get to from the A3 or A27. We feel relaxed as soon as we get here and hope you will agree.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Beautiful, tranquil location, with private beach access, ideally suited to both families or for quiet get aways and romantic retreats. The location of the property also boasts great relaxing or adventurous activities such as surfing, rambling, fishing breaks or just spending a few days catching up with a good book. The holiday site has a swimming pool, country pub and convenience store amongst it's many amenities but retains its quiet, peaceful ambience which is a far cry from a Hi-de-Hi holiday camp.

Great chalet, good facilities in holiday park, quite location, lots to do
We had a fab time. We are a family with a 4 year old and a dog and it worked well. Dog friendly holiday park. Beach 10 mins walk from chalet, lovely heated pool. We went in June and were very lucky with the weather! Jackie very helpful. We had a good long weekend but could have stayed longer.
Thanks for a lovely stay!

Excellent location for exploring this lovely part of Sussex
Extremely comfortable, very well equipped and lots of thoughtful touches like basket of toiletries. Very cosy even in a chilly Spring with plenty of hot water and heaters.
