Great location and pool but house could use some TLC

  • 4 of 5

We had a great few days in West Wittering, enjoying the pool and the beach (a short walk away) on a daily basis due to amazing weather. The village is really unspoilt and very small with little development (more facilities in East Wittering a short drive away). The nearby deli and pub at the end of the road were both good for eating out. The house itself was clean and had most things we needed. I spoke to the management team once (only because they needed to let in a workman during our stay - otherwise I wouldn't have bothered to phone) and he was happy to come and fix up the Sky box and bring us some clean tea towels! The general feel of the house was a bit dated and worn in terms of decor/furnishings etc. The lack of a shower in the upstairs bathroom was a bit of an issue, although the downstairs ensuite was a lot nicer so we just used that. A new kitchen and upstairs bathroom would go a long way to improving the feel of the house. Overall a great holiday though.

Cosy cottage for a perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 days over Christmas at Farthings. It was exactly what we were after - a cosy comfortable home from home. The log fire added to the festive atmosphere and the house had everything we needed to enjoy a pleasant family stay. Now to return in the Summer when we can make use of the garden, pool and proximity to the beach!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say? This is the most beautiful and comfortable cottage we have ever stayed in, in the most peaceful and tranquil of settings, even though the beach is only a short 10 minutes walk away.

Our first day was spent mainly exploring the house and surrounding area and the short drive into East Wittering to check out the local shops and picked up a few supplies. We were surprised there were so many handy shops within a small area, everything you could need. A Tesco and Co-Op for most food bits, plus a butcher (in the hope of a bbq later in the week). A very nice fish and chip shop which we knew would come in handy, plus cash machines and pharmacy if needed. As well as the usual gift shops that you'd expect to find by the sea.

Our hope of the bbq came the very next day with the sun shining all day, we knew this would be a day for staying to enjoy the lovely pool and it didn't disappoint at all. It was just perfect having a nice secluded pool all to ourselves and the actual pool shaded enough by trees not to keep getting out to reapply sun screen, although once on the sunbed, it was a real suntrap area and had to make sure we were topped up with cream.

We had 'typical' British weather in the fact that our first Monday was a bank holiday and so it poured of rain but never mind.... My little boy found what he called 'the gentlemen's club'.... A pool table and darts board. He and my dad spent the best part of the day in there, although he did let my mum and myself in occasionally!!

The rest of the week was spent enjoying all the local area and on one day got a bus from the end of the lane, into Chichester and enjoyed the day there and got the bus back, which handily stopped right outside the pub at the end of the lane, where we had a lovely meal to finish the day.

I think this is one of the nicest holidays we have had and although we were busy doing something all of the time, it felt so restful too.

We will definitely be booking up again and you have EVERYTHING you need for a great holiday!

Lovely holiday cottage

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Farthings several times - a recommendation in itself. We love the area which is a real "get away from it all", and enjoy long walks on the beach or in the surrounding countryside followed by a cream tea at the nearly cafe or barbecued sausages from the local butcher. The property is generally well maintained and clean and having a private pool and garden is a great plus.
