Beach House, Near. Chichester, West Sussex, UK, Near West and east Wittering
A stunning 1950's beach house, quirky and different, has appeared in many magazines. The sea is at the end of the garden so no excuses not to swim!
Excellent access for Goodwood and the Chichester theatre. Great wind surfing, paddle boarding and kite surfing. We are on the same beach as West Wittering, but less crowded and more peaceful. The local shops are in East Wittering and have everything you need. I have a self contained annexe near the front of the house with its own entrance and which does not intrude on your privacy. My house keeper lives nearby and is always on hand to help if needed.
There are 4 double bedrooms 3 bathrooms all the beds are made up with top end linen and luxury bed toppers. Only one bedroom has a sea view and has an ensuite bathroom. There is a double bedroom with an ensuite on the ground floor with a shower. The 3rd double Bedroom has the use of the same bathroom as the twin bedroom. The kitchen has oven, fridge, microwave, full range of cooking utensils. Fully stocked with plates glasses bowls etc. We supply towels.
TV is a smart tv and has net-flicks there is a DVD player. Fast Internet. We also have a very large selection of art book for your enjoyment . There is constant hot water and very good heating as well as a wood burner fire, so the house is lovely in the winter as well as the summer. The Garden is fully secure with gates and there is parking for 4 cars. There is an outside bath with hot water for washing of the sand or relaxing in.

About Crena Watson
I'm a photographer mostly working in London and Paris. I would like to rent my house out to people who are looking for something a little different from the norm, and want to relax. It's great waking up and having the sea right there in the garden.
Crena Watson purchased this house in 2009
Why Crena Watson chose West Sussex
I bought this house in 2009 as a retreat from London life it's peaceful but not too isolated. It is convenient for London and Chichester is only 7 miles away. It has a lovely warm vibe in summer and winter.
What makes this house unique
It's not often you find a house that has the beach at the end of the garden, it's also great having Chichester so near, so one can be a beach bum as well as having a little culture! The sea here is safe, great for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and wind surfing. Long walks on the beach to East Head owned by the National trust.
Goodwood is close by, also Pallant House Gallery and the Chichester theatre.

Stunning house with amazing views
Me, my husband and 2 children stayed at the Beach House for a week. What a truly amazing experience. The house itself is fabulous, and unbelievably well equipped. There is everything you could possibly need. The views of the coast are stunning, what a way to wake up every morning. Thank you again Crena x

Great holiday, lovely property in perfect location with excellent facilities.
Beautiful, stylish, interesting, comfortable, functional house, right on the beach!
We had a very special long-weekend away at this gorgeous house. We spent the whole time feeling incredibly lucky to be there. There are so many different places to sit and read and to admire the view. The beds are incredibly comfy and every room is lovely. The house is full of interesting objects, books and furniture. The sea is right there at the end of the garden which is really special, and perfect for a quick dip, then a run back to the garden for an outdoor hot shower! Crena was welcoming and helpful- a perfect host. The location is great too. We had a lovely walk along the beach to East Wittering for lunch (Samphire- delicious!), and then on to West wittering to admire all the posh houses along the seafront. We decided ours was the best though and would love to come back one day.
Fantastic holiday let in a great location
A lovely house in a great location right on the beach. Everything was there for us towels, drying up cloths, lots of good quality china, glasses, cooking utensils and cutlery. There was ample space for all eight of us.
The property was fabulous, beautifully decorated, lovely ambience and incredible aspect to the sea.
We had a wonderful time, lots of fresh air and warm fires. An amazing location for a beautiful house, I would highly recommend it.
Beautiful house, wonderful views, an amazing place to stay
Crena was there to greet us when we arrived, very welcoming, explained bits and bobs about the house, then left us to it. The house is really lovely, so many quirky art items and furnishings, including lots of really beautiful pieces of furniture, more books than a library! Such fun checking out each room! Love the string garden chairs, going to have to get some ourselves! The beds were so comfortable, with top quality bedding, it was like sleeping on fluffy clouds! The kitchen has everything you need, including kitchen towel, tea towels and dishwasher tabs. Plenty of towels (incl. bath mats) and loo rolls available too. All these bits and bobs usually take up an entire suitcase so it's such a bonus to have them all included, it really does make such a huge difference in taking the stress out of the holiday. We spent every day in the house, garden or on the beach directly outside with the odd trip into Wittering to visit butchers, greengrocers and bakery for our food supplies. The summerhouse is fab for a cold, wet or windy day when you want to be as close to the sea as possible yet all snuggly and protected. No matter what the weather the views were amazing, even the day we had sea fog right up to the back garden, it made for some amazing photos with dew laden cobwebs and plants and rainbow clouds as the sun tried to peek through. We had the local seal having his brunch of two fat fish on one morning! The last day the sea was like an ice-rink, not a ripple. We never tire of looking out at all the ever-changing views.
Thank you Crena for your hospitality, you have allowed us to have a wonderful, relaxing, stress-free week looking out from a stunning house at a stunning view, just what we all needed.....
Wishing you all the very best for the future xx
