About Robert Whitehead

A growing family!

Robert Whitehead purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Robert Whitehead chose West Sussex

We bought Mariner's as a holiday home for our family and friends. We love Chichester but wanted the option of a seaside retreat - Selsey gives us both.

What makes this bungalow unique

A rural retreat by the sea and only a few miles from Chichester city centre.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

wonderful Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for the 5th time with my elderly mother. The Cottage is situated in a very quiet lane with easy access to East Beach. This part of Selsey is very quiet and non commercialised which we love. Facilities as described and very clean with the owner being very helpful if required. A good welcome pack is provided which is great when you first arrive. It now feels like home from home for us and would definitely recommend to friends and family. We hope to return next year.

Fantastic holiday location and accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic 10 days in this charming, well equipped bungaow. Everything that we could have needed was supplied, everything that we hadn't even thought of was provided, and the food in the fridge for our arrival was a lovely touch. It was more like staying with friends. Its ideal location, close to a quiet beach, meant that evening strolls were only a minute away, and our children played for ages on the pebbles and in the water during the days. The roman town of Chichester was only 15 mins away, with a convenient train station, and the interesting Novium museum. The roman palace at Fishbourne, with beautiful mosaics, was truly amazing. The busy town of Portsmouth with its historic dock and plenty of shops is within easy reach. With such a variety of attractions nearby, beautiful garden to just sit in, and enough books,films and music to keep you entertained all year, without even going out, we were really please to have discovered this gem to stay in. Many thanks from us all.

Amazing Holiday. Perfect Cottage and Location.

  • 5 of 5

Within minutes of walking in we knew that we had made a great choice. Spotless, everything here that you could possibly want. Really decorated in a maritime theme to a very high standard and tastefully done. Bags of storage space, bright airy. Lovely garden, again well thought out and lots of quiet spots. A lovely welcome pack awaited us. I would and have already recommended Mariners Cottage it is faultless. We walked to a lovely deserted beach every night at the end of the road. There is a parade of shops not too far away. The cake shop is brilliant with a great array of savouries and lovely cakes. I was not struck on the fish and chip shop. We tried Dens in the High St and that was excellent. Julies fish and crab shop is excellent. We had three crabs and were the best in my life. Wow I could go on forever........we will return to Mariners. Just hope that the present owners keep it going as they have created a bit of Heaven for us. Many many thanks.

Wundervolle Ferien in Selsey

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten 2 wundervolle Wochen im Mariners Cottge, in denen sich England von seiner besten Seite zeigte.

Das Cottage ist bestens eingerichtet, sehr sauber und läßt keine Wünsche offen. Schon bei der Ankunft war fürs erste Frühstück vorgesorgt, Milch, Butter, Toast und Tee war vorhanden.

Besonders hervorzuheben ist der sehr gepflegte englische Garten, in dem es nur so grünt und blüht. ( Ron, der Gärtner, ein netter älterer Herr gab uns viele Tipps). Es war ein großes Vergnügen sich nach dem Schwimmen im nur 100m entfernten Meer im Liegestuhl bei einer Tasse Tee im windgeschützten Garten aufzuwärmen und die Sonne zu genießen.

Es gibt Pubs in denen man gut und preiswert essen kann (The Lifeboat Inn) oder auch mal abends zum Pubquiz gehen kann (The Fisherman`s Joy).

Einen tollen Sandstrand findet man in West Wittering, ca. 15km entfernt mit allen Möglichkeiten an Wassersport.

Somit kann man das Mariners Cottage für einen ruhigen und erholsamen Urlaub in Südengland nur wärmstens empfehlen.

Thank you, Rob, for a wonderful holiday
