Beachside House

  • 5 of 5

Holiday started well with a kind & helpful welcome from the housekeeper. The layout of the house was intriguing, having 4 floors in a 2 storey house. The house (almost on the beach) was beautifully maintained & decorated, and had contemporary furnishings. The only fault for me personally (a pensioner) was that I would have appreciated a handrail on the stairs.

The 2 sundecks/balcony's were wonderful. For sun worshippers one of them was always in the sunlight, or conversely, shade, for those of us who cannot cope with extreme heat. We had the 2 hottest weeks last summer. I spent hours in the shade in the mornings on the glass fronted front balcony reading & just enjoying the wonderful view over the sea to the Isle of Wight. The same view was enjoyed from the lounge through the huge patio windows. At low tide one could walk for miles along the sea shore, & even the horses from the local stables came for their dip in the sea & a canter along the beach through the shallow water.

When I accidently locked us out of the house the housekeeper came to our rescue. We cannot speak too highly of her helpfulness & care, & she is a great asset to the owners. Having a safe parking space just outside the house was great. We enjoyed some lovely meals which were good value for money at the nearby Pond Barn Restaurant. We had a really lovely holiday.

Great place to stay, very comfortable with lovely views and good access to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is spacious and has everything you need. We like to sometimes cook in the house and the kitchen is very well equipped. There is plenty of space to eat in the dining room and a large sitting room to relax. All the bedrooms and both bathrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms have good showers. We were at the house in November but it remained warm, which was great! The house is very clean and well decorated and is good value. We will certainly go back.

Windy Bracklesham Bay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with our two young grandchildren the evening of the big storm Brian they loved the great view from the balcony of the waves crashing onto the beach, The house is well appointed and fixtures and furnishings of good quality , It proved to be a good base to explore the west Sussex coastline. Only one point to note the door to the electrical box in the entrance lobby needs to be secured. We will recommend number 16 to our family and friends without hesitation.

Perfect few days.

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing with everything you could possibly need. A real home from home. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Very comfortable. Sitting on the front balcony with sea views during the day and billions of stars at night was fantastic. Billy s on the beach for breakfast was great. All in all a brilliant place to stay. Will definitely be back.

Well equipped, cosy and clean holiday house

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Marineside this Summer. The house had everything we needed and is warm and cosy. The two balconies are well situated for sun in the morning and afternoon and the kitchen has everything you could ask for. Our kids loved the bunk beds and exploring the house which is over 3 floors. Despite mixed weather we had a lovely stay and would recommend this holiday house to other families interested in spending the Summer in West Sussex.

With views across to the Isle if Wight, Bracklesham Bay village is 0.5km away & has a small selection of shops & restaurants typical of any English seaside town - including fish & chips, ice creams & buckets & spades etc. Nearby East Wittering has more extensive quality shopping including bakers, butchers, fishmongers and mini supermarkets. Windsurfing & sailing is popular in the waters off Bracklesham Bay & The Witterings. The colourful sails racing at great speed over the water is a spectacle to watch. Walking on the sand at low tide for several miles in either direction is also popular. The Bracklesham beach area is renown for fossil hunting and at low tide small items can sometimes be found - a pastime for children. West wittering is a UK top 10 beach and is 10 minutes away by car or, for the more adventurous, can be reached on foot along the beach front at low tide

The main nearby town is Chichester which is a short distance away - about 15 minutes by car. The ancient Roman city is famous for the theatre, cathedral, art galleries, museums, restaurants, canal & shopping centre. It also offers offers bars, clubs, multi-screen cinema & a good rail link to London.

Other Activities: kiteboarding


Two 18 hole courses side by side, plus par 3 pitch and putt, driving range, putting green & crazy golf

at Hunston village, approx 4 miles away
