About Barnaby Wilmott

We carefully chose our property as somewhere that we would like to stay. We enjoy walking and water sports so the location is ideal for us.

Our philosophy is to provide just that little bit more than our guests expect. Please call if you have any particular interests.

Barnaby Wilmott purchased this house in 2003

Why Barnaby Wilmott chose Littlehampton

We love the area. It is close to where we live. It is fantastic being next to the river. There is always something to see whatever the weather.

It's great to be able to walk out to the local pub or even just to get a newspaper first thing in the morning.

What makes this house unique

We have all the home comforts we need and our favourite restaurant just 5 minutes walk away. We like to just sit and chill out by the river, enjoying a drink or a meal to suit the occasion.. We both enjoy watching the bridge gracefully slide open whenever big ships go up the river to unload.

Lovely modern house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely modern house with the River Arun at the end of the patio. Within a few minutes walking distance along the river-edge prom to the popular Harbour Lights cafe restaurant and a tiny bit further on to Lidl, Sainsbury's and the main, pedestrianised shopping area. Sadly, despite the advert still showing it only a few minutes walk from the property, Waitrose has moved to Rustington a couple of miles east. It's very quiet in the house with comfortable beds and well-equipped kitchen. Wall tv's in the lounge and master bedroom. In short, thoroughly recommended.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the kind words. Sorry about Waitrose, at least there is still a Sainsbury's nearby. The Arun View is also nearby just a few minutes walk away.

Beautiful setting, peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic holiday home. We stayed with our 10 year old and 14 year old kids and had a lovely holiday. Our son thoroughly enjoyed catching crabs off the pontoon each morning before breakfast, and our next door neighbour was really friendly and helpful.

The house was in the perfect location for accessing the train (just around the corner from the train station), and had the convenience of a parking space in front of the house, off the main road. Littlehampton has sufficient shops and restaurants/pubs within a 5 minute walk from the house, including a Lidl supermarket, and lovely walk along the seafront to blow the cobwebs away.

The house had all modern appliances and the luxury of a bathroom, ensuite shower room and downstairs toilet. We couldn't have asked for better and will certainly return if we ever plan to stay near littlehampton again.

Thank you!

Lovely house, great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with the family for three days, everyone really enjoyed it and had a great time, love Littlehampton. The house was just a stone's throw away from the beach and Harbour park, which was very convenient, local shops/amenities few minutes walk away too, so everything is within walking distance. The house was superb, has everything you would need and you get a great view on the river.

Thank you!
