Lovely cottage - comfortable, well equipped and good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying at Little Creed Cottage. It's a cottage that you can settle into very quickly and feel at home. It is very comfortable, exceptionally clean and very well equipped. The tips and summary notes for equipment are very thoughtfully done.

We really liked the location. Easy to walk or drive down to Bosham for a stroll, and easy to access main roads to head to main towns or into the Downs.

With its lovely view across the fields, the cottage feels secluded and peaceful, and you don't really need to leave the cottage at all, as it is just a very nice place to be.

Lovely cottage, excellent facilities and beautiful view of the downs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here before when our granddaughter was 10 months old and the cottage was just as lovely this time. We were met by the owner and shown everything we would need and where the instructions were kept. Immaculately clean and well equipped. Our granddaughter is now two years old and ten months and loved the garden, the lavender cottage games room and the gazebo. Bosham is still one of our favourite places and is near to where we used to live. It is an easy walk to the harbour from the cottage. We had the advantage of excellent weather during our stay and could eat outside on the patio. Try to avoid the A27 and Chichester roundabouts by using the back roads to skirt around delays. Co-op nearby stocks a good range of foods if you don't want to risk the supermarkets!

West Wittering beach is excellent but gets very busy especially at weekends. Use the turning to Dell Quay to avoid the Chichester bypass. Weald and Downland museum worth a visit and Chichester is a lovely town for shopping, Romans walls and Cathedral.

The Berkeley Arms around the corner serves good food at a reasonable price. The Anchor Bleu on the harbour has an excellent view of the harbour but the menu is more limited. The Millstream Hotel has a restaurant and bistro - good food but a bit more expensive.

We would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you all enjoyed staying at Little Creed Cottage. The games room (Lavender Cottage) is always popular with children, even two year olds, and we have heard that they sometimes disappear into there for days on end! There are plans to upgrade the A27 but this will take another 2 or 3 years before it is completed. We hope you will be able to stay again. Graham and Katharine

Activity and Interests


Little Creed Cottage is about 25 minutes drive from the beaches of West Wittering and Hayling Island.

West Wittering offers wonderful views of Chichester Harbour and the South Downs beyond. The natural and unspoilt sandy beach has been a favourite destination for a family day out for generations.

Hayling Island has over 3 miles of beaches along the seafront facing the Solent and many more miles of shore around the Harbours of Langstone and Chichester.


The cottage is about 20 minutes walk from Bosham railway station. There are buses from a bus stop just a few meters from the cottage that go to the centre of Chichester, 5 miles away. Although it is possible to stay in the cottage without a car, guests who wish to explore the area will find it more convenient if they have their own transport.

Nearest airports are Gatwick (55 miles), Sothampton (28 miles) and Heathrow (67 miles).


The city of Chichester is 5 miles away, Portsmouth with its historic dockyard and museums (14 miles) and Goodwood for horse racing and motor racing (9 miles).

Further Details:

There is a supermarket just 10 minutes walk away that is open 7am to 10pm every day.
