Overview

About the property

Beautifully Renovated 'Railway' Cottage In Peaceful, Beach Front Location

Seaspray sits directly on Pagham Beach, a wonderfully peaceful location. Based around a Victorian railway carriage Seaspray has been lovingly renovated to include all the comforts of modern living including central heating and double glazing. Seaspray is perfectly positioned to watch the sun rise over the sea and set in the back garden. The area is known to be the "sunniest" in Britain so whilst it is raining inland the beach is often bathed in sunshine. Even on a wet day it is a swift retreat from beach to comfy sofa. Pagham is a relatively unknown area of coast with empty beaches on most days. The area is undeveloped and has kept it's charm of yesteryear whilst being close to towns and cities.

Sorry no dogs (except guide dogs) and we do not have WIFI.

About Samantha Falconer

I am just one member of a large family enjoying Seaspray. Along with the rest of my family I have visited Pagham most years be it for a holiday or a day on the beach.

Owning Seaspray has been a dream fulfilled. I am incredibly proud of the hard work that has gone into both buying and renovating the bungalow by not only me but my whole family.

Samantha Falconer purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Samantha Falconer chose West Sussex

My family first visited Pagham in the 40s when my Grandmother and Aunt were evacuated during the war. Thereafter the family would visit annually for week in a rented bungalow on Pagham Beach Estate. Pagham became an idillic escape and as a family we must have stayed in a dozen different bungalows.

We are on our 5th generation of Pagham holidaymakers and very little has changed over the years. However, one by one the original railway carriage bungalows are being replace with modern versions.

After many years of steaming up the estate agents window we fulfilled a dream in 2010 of owning a beach bungalow at Pagham came true. The whole family set to renovating Seaspray. We are delighted to share our dream with holidaymakers to Seaspray and hope you love it as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

We are regularly amazed at just how much better the weather is on the beach compared to our inland home. Often we have sat smiling on the beach in January wearing t-shirts.

There are a range of brilliant attractions nearby but time and again we find we rarely leave the beach.

Seaspray is the perfect retreat with something for everyone. We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday, the house is absolutely amazing!



It is so well equipped (better than anything else I have ever stayed in), it felt very home from home especially with all the provisions for children such as toys and plastic plates, cups and cutlery.



Being on the beach was simply wonderful, I got up early with the kids every day and to be able to sit and watch the sun come up over the sea was perfect.



We would definitely love to come and stay again.



Many thanks and kind regards

Kate - September 2012



What a beautiful home, we have had a wonderful stay and enjoyed every second of our time at Seaspray.



Such a perfect place for a family holiday, we hope to be back soon.



Thanks so much

We’ve had a great time staying at Seaspray – love the house.



It’s extremely well-equipped and bags of space, fantastic being right on the beach. Thank you.

A very comfortable holiday cottage on the beach

  • 5 of 5

A lovely holiday cottage right on pagham beach, you can enjoy the sunrise over the sea from the comfort of the sun lounge on a clear day. The charm of the railway carriage has been preserved whilst you have all the comfort of a recently renovated modern holiday cottage. You can tell it has been loved!

Back again for the third time

  • 5 of 5

Four school friends of many years ago enjoyed another wonderful stay. Seaspray was as perfect as ever, being clean and warm, with plenty of room for us. The view of the sea is amazing, and for us the weather was very kind. The Lamb pub was our place of choice every evening, with 'locals' night on Thursday. Excellent value.

Good stay with elderly parents

  • 4 of 5

We came for a few days at the end of June 2016. Initial impression when arriving was "looks a bit ramshackle" - but go inside and it's much better than that! Quirky, clean and with everything we needed. My elderly parents (Mum is 94 and uses a walking frame) managed the outside steps fine as it has a handrail, and inside they had the double bedroom with no step, all was on the level, they were able to cope. I brought a WC seat raiser, but they managed everything else fine. It was great for them, including the good view particularly when the weather was a bit grey and windy. Dad could wander along the beach safely and talk to fishermen. A very good place to take them away to.

We found the Beach café fish&chip shop the first night, but suspect the SmallFry chipshop next to the Co-op is better.

Pagham itself is a bit basic, not much there, from the shops it looks a bit in recession, no pub in walking distance. The walk to the harbour and lagoon is nice.

All in all, a good place to take elderly people, to look at the sea and enjoy the views, sunshine, and sea air, and have a quiet wander.

The owner very helpful with information.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Seaspray and that it was a good location to bring your parents too. Pagham is certainly quieter and less uptodate than other seaside locations, the plus side is the lack of crowds. Unfortunately there is no pub on the beach estate, but if you come again do visit the there are three pubs in the village centre which is approx 1 mile away. We hope to welcome you again. Very best wishes Sam at Seaspray Pagham

Very lovely stay, best view ever and very kind neighbours

  • 4 of 5

Allthough Seaspray has its age, the cottage was very comfortable, and decorated very tastefully. We rented it as a fall-out base to visit family and explore the surroundings, and Seaspray met up to all expectations. Nice extra was the freshly caught crab and lobster sold by the neighbours.

As for the owner, I can only say that Samantha is an absolute delight to deal with. It's not always easy to get apt information from abroad, but Samantha was kind enough to answer every question we had, and even work out a solution for a charger we had forgotten.

The only downside was the state the garden was in, but I think that was due to the periode we were there.

Overall, I can only recommend this holiday home, and I truly whish to return some day!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay so much. Apologies that the garden was not up to scratch, we will get right onto this, I can only think the combination of some wet weather and heat has caused a surge of growth. We look forward to you staying again. Best wishes Samantha
