Reminiscing in Selsey

  • 3 of 5

On arrival the cottage was really cold. Further to that we immediately had to go shopping for essentials i.e. Dish cloths, scourers, bin bags and loo rolls. These we would have expected to be in the cottage. The small sitting/dining room with only a two seater sofa was not adequate considering it is a three bedroom property. We were glad of the upstairs tv room. However, we had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend visiting the local area and going to The Festival Theatre in Chichester.

Owner's Response: We are glad that your party enjoyed Selsey and all the attractions the surrounding area has to offer, and that you found "Longacre" comfortable. We are concerned, however, that you appear not to have enjoyed the accommodation quite as much as our other guests. Thank you very much for bringing to our attention the lack of toilet paper and dish cloths. As a matter of course, we always provide these items, in addition to kitchen towels, hand towels and washing-up liquid, and make sure that the kitchen bin has a bin liner. However, at the end of this season we decided to employ a cleaning company to ready the property for each group of guests, as we were spending a good deal of time abroad. They have done an excellent job but it is probably our own fault that they had not been instructed to ensure that the above-mentioned items be provided for each new group of guests. We apologise for that and will make sure that this matter is addressed. We take on board your comments regarding the size of the dining/sitting room compared to the size of your party. A good deal of our guests choose to eat in the kitchen/diner and there is the option of using the two armchairs and bringing down the large floor-cushions from the upstairs TV room to augment that space. However, as we deal with many families, it is generally found that the children or young adults tend to use the upstairs "Big screen" room whilst the "Oldies" (that's us!) cosy up by the log fire downstairs. Which brings me to your first point. We are sorry that you found the house to be cold on arrival. This was because it had been unoccupied for the previous week and, naturally, the central heating had been turned off in order to conserve energy. However, we do find that the rooms heat up very quickly once the CH is activated and we ensure that, during winter months, there is sufficient fuel for the open fireplace to at least "get you started". Consequently, we do hope that this discomfort did not last long. And in future we will endeavour to make arrangements for the heating to be turned on in advance for future winter and autumn guests who may arrive while we are away.

Lovely property for all ages and abilities.

  • 5 of 5

We took my elderly parents (one with limited mobility) as well as my two young children, away for October 1/2 term. The children absolutely loved the den upstairs, giving them their own space away from the adults (allowing them to play) the large TV and bathroom was an added bonus. Having an open fire of an evening was lovely and allowed us to all spend quality time together as a family. The BBQ was also a hit with us of an evening. As the downstairs of the property had two bedrooms and shower room, it meant that my father did not have to worry about managing stairs. The beach is a short walk away as is the town centre which meant my father was able to join us on his mobility scooter. Would recommend for all ages and those with limited mobility and hope to be using the property again soon.

Cosy and well-equipped home-from-home

  • 5 of 5

Great property for us (couple) and our two dogs. It genuinely felt like being at our own home in a different location! Super comfy beds, lovely kitchen with all mod cons, choice of living rooms and fantastic safe garden for the dogs (and us!). Beach is an easy couple of minutes walk away, shops also within walking distance. We would love to come back for longer next time!

Characterful, cosy, in a quiet location with a large garden good for kids and dogs alike...!

  • 4 of 5

A wifey birthday weekend away and meet up with friends. It was lovely to meet the owners; Helen and Dave on our arrival who gave us some history about the house and how it had been in the family for many years. The character of the house still shows through today. Barney our dog had loads of places to explore in the large enclosed garden. The house was so cosy and comfortable that one day we almost didn't leave the house. Already looking to go back again in the spring.
