Wonderful house and stunning beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely house. It's spacious, charming and welcoming, pretty without being too intimidating to a group with small children! The beautiful beach is a stone's throw away, so we wandered back and forth, having meals at the house and hanging out on the beach. The huge garden is brilliant too, loads of room for kids to play and adults to lounge. We loved the family feel of the house, which is incredibly comfortable and equipped with everything you might want. Virginia was lovely and very responsive to questions and requests. We will definitely be going back!

Worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house. We go back every year (if we can). It's the kind of place where you arrive and your shoulders drop. Relaxed, laid back, comfortable, on the beach. It's terrific. Highly recommend. Thanks very much for so many wonderful memories!

A warm & Cosy winter weekend.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was extremely good, accomodation as described and the owners could not have been more helpful at every turn. It was very warm & cosy & comfortable beds, heating & hot water & ensuite bathroom marvellous, kitchen well equipped and tv & sitting room great. I would recommend it to anyone with or without a family. Excellent location re 2 mins from beach. Many pubs and shops a few mins car drive away. Many thanks to the family of Windlestraw.

Ideal for family looking for seaside holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house is ideal for a family of all ages looking for sun,sand,and seaside holiday.Standing oin an exclusive private estate it is literally 100 yards from what must be the longest sandy beach in the south of England.Chichester harbour a Mecca for sailors and the South Downs lovely for walking are within easy reach as is Chichester with its two renowned theatres and ancient streets and Cathederal

The listing description of the house is accurate and it is clean and well maintained.

The owners gave us excellent service and were prompt in dealing with problems.

We would certainly recommend the property to any of our friends whose idea of an ideal Holiday is similar to ours.
