About Julia Porter

My husband and I live in Surrey as part of the London commuter belt, then fate helped us find this fabulous retreat with its direct access to the beach. Its perfect for family holidays and weekends and breaks with friends to escape the rat race. We love it so much we have recently been fortunate to buy the house next door for you to enjoy.

Julia Porter purchased this house in 2013

Why Julia Porter chose Bracklesham Bay

We fell in love with this property as the upside down living gives us a breath taking view of the sea and the surroundings. The sunsets over The Isle of Wight can be so magical.

What makes this house unique

Chichester is just a hop skip and jump away, if you need a shopping fix or a cultural experience at Chichester Theatre. The A27 just 7 miles away, gives you speedy access to Portsmouth and Southhampton with access to ferries for The Isle Wight or the Maritine Museum or in the reverse direction you can zap to a multitude of Goodwood events a mere 30 mins away!

Amazing beach house done to top spec, fantastic 3 day break with lots of sun shine. The welcome lemon drizzle cake has to be the best I have ever tasted.

I stayed at this property with my group of NCT mum's for our annual trip away (6 of us in total) and we all had an amazing weekend! Despite being November the views, sunsets and changes in the skyline were incredible. I'm surprised we even left the armchairs watching it constantly! There was plenty to keep us busy with all the beach walks, visiting the local area, cafes and restaurants. We didn't even get time to go to Chichester which would have been on the agenda if we'd had more time! All I can truly say is that we all agreed it was the best location and property in the 17 years we have all been going away!! It is a truly special place :) And we plan to return next year!

Welcome - Delicious home baked Lemon Drizzle cake on arrival. Julia so friendly, accommodating and welcoming.

House - Lovely coastal decor, so well equipped, everything you need (and more) in the kitchen and for the beach.

Position - Best Spot in the Bay, Sunsets to die for!

A very special place that holds some lovely memories for all my family.
