3 bedroom beach bungalow to sleep 4/5

'Oceanswell'

A bungalow built around railway carriage right on the beach with glorious sea views. Ideal location for Goodwood.

Quirky accommodation. The main bedroom is reached via the second bedroom. There is a small box room suitable for a child or a height challenged person. (There is headroom but not long enough for a full length bed.)

Ideal for a couple or a couple with children or just good friends. Crockery and utensils are provided but please bring your own towels.

Pagham beach is a mecca for windsurfing kite surfing and sailing.

A great place for relaxing and exploring the area. The nearby South Downs is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bring your mountain bike and ride the trails.

The cathedral city of Chichester is 7 miles away.

Charming, quirky & fun

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. It was as described, right on the beach, well equipped, clean and welcoming. Maybe a bit of TLC needed in terms of outside decoration, but definitely worth the price. Great walks, excellant fish & chips - be nice if renting the property included membership of the beach clubhouse.

beach side holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cute little converted railway carriage. It was basic but had everything you needed. It was clean, warm and had real character. A relaxing break on the beach front. Will return with my Grandchildren. The front of the home is a little scruffy at first sight but once inside it is cute and quirky

great location

  • 2 of 5

property was clean and the location was excellent, but disappointed with the property. I would recommend some updating, new fridge, the security of the property front doors was poor and the gardens need to be better maintained. would not recommend to anyone

Quirky cosy property with direct beach access

  • 5 of 5

Great quirky property with all the amenities you could need. Lovely views from the sitting room through patio doors, making the room light and lovely to sit in. The railway carriage features make the cottage wonderfully different. Great location for visiting Goodwood and local attractions. Thanks for the lovely stay!

Oceanswell

Quirky railway carriage/house on the beach. We loved it, it was right on the beach and the weather was good, what's not to love? There was everything we needed, the beds were comfortable. The place was clean and welcoming. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here, we hope to come again.

In need of some TLC

  • 2 of 5

Dealing with the owner was very easy - she responded quickly and clearly.

Effort has gone on the inside of the property to make if feel more homely and the general cleanliness was good. It's location is clearly the main selling point, with access directly onto the beach. There is a cafe and a small arcade near by and a shop just up the road.

However I felt let down by the property. The gravel garden front and back was completely overgrown and it made the property look almost derelict on arrival and the outlook now includes a sea container as next door are in the middle of building a new property.

And maybe this is the crux of the problem. Without a large refurb programme, this quirky property is heading in only one direction. The smell of damp was very noticeable and even though we fully aired the house every day, the damp got into all of our clothes.

I think the owner is at a cross roads with this property. Either it needs some money thrown at it, or like the neighbours, something more dramatic thrown at it.
