Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Great stay at Seagulls.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Seagulls.

Very unique home, with cute décor, but plenty of space for a larger group. The welcome packet was a nice surprise and showed an attention to detail which is always good to have!

Shaun was very easy to work with over email correspondence.

We hope to stay again in the future.

Quirky and charming space for a family Christmas.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to get together with family over Christmas. There was plenty of room for everyone and the wood burner created a lovely cosy space. The quirky bedrooms created lots of interest and suited our family set up perfectly. I was most impressed with the kitchen which was able to support cooking Christmas meals for 8 as well as storing plenty of food. The view of the sea from the upstairs window was unbeatable and it was a joy to be able to go down to the seafront every day. We could not have hoped for a better accommodation and the owners made sure it was decorated beautifully for us - it was extremely welcoming. I was truly sorry to leave at the end of our stay.

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!
