Hi Alicia

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you very much for our stay at your cottage. We had such a lovely time and we cant wait to come back ...if that's ok with you!!

The house was absolutely perfect and my dogs loved that the living room was upstairs (they aren't allowed upstairs at home!) There was everything we could wish for in the house and my bed was so comfy!

Selsey was perfect even in the blustery weather.



We shall definitely be back again. Absolutely perfect. Thank you so much!

A total Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was completely wonderful - the attention to detail and love lavished on the place was really fantastic - from the beautiful linen and towels to the fantastic Victoria Sponge (how many eggs to get it that fabulous??!!) that awaited us on our arrival - nothing could be have been better.

Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous place: clean, characterful, well-stocked and appointed. Perfect location about half a minute's walk from the sea and well-enclosed by high hedges with only one small gate, so great for families and for privacy. Good communication from the hosts and welcome scones on arrival! Couldn't have asked for more.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful holiday in this comfortable and unique property. Everything you could want and more - well appointed house, a stones throw from the sea and a private well maintained garden. Correspondence from Shaun and Russell in the run up to our holiday was excellent and little touches such as homemade scones made it extra special. A hidden gem and we can't wait to return - thank you!

Quirky Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

'Seagulls' was perfect for our family of four adults, four children and the dog! It is in a great position for the beach, one minute walk! The garden was fully enclosed, which was great for the kids and dog.

Shops were a five minute walk, which includes a great fish and chop shop!

It's a fifteen minute walk to the Lifeboat Pub which served lovely food.

A great holiday all round, especially if you want peace and quiet.

This was a fantastic property, clean well equipped and exactly what we were looking for in a family weekend. All rooms were fantastic kitchen well equipped and the main room upstairs a great asset for when we put the little ones to bed. We could relax and not worry about waking them.

Plenty of china etc did not lack a thing. Would recommend this to anyone.

I think the owner had thought of all our needs.
