About Tony Bradbury


Tony Bradbury purchased this house in 2004

Why Tony Bradbury chose West Sussex

We had been visiting the Witterings for years before we got the opportunity to buy an old bungalow on the sea front.

The beach is fantastic for young children and for walking, swimming, body/paddle-boarding, wind-surfing, kite-surfing and kayaking. The surrounding area is also great for walks and cycling.

Unfortunately houses on the sea front take a battering in the winter from the winds and salt and the old bungalow deteriorated so much that we decided to knock it down and build a new beach house in 2013.

Now in the middle of winter we can close the triple glazed windows/doors, put on the wood burning stove and wander round in t-shirts whilst in the summer we can walk straight out onto the beach and have dinner on the balcony while watching the sunset. It's lovely all year roun

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Fabulous house beautifully furnished and equipped. We will be back!" July 14

"Property was beautifully designed and the perfect base to take in the views, walk on the beach and eat and drink in the excellent local pubs and restaurants. One of the nicest properties on the sea front." July 2014

"Helene & Tony ... what can we say? The stuff that dreams are made of. The perfect weather for the quintessential British beach holiday but a real cut above in terms of accommodation - you have thought of everything and the place is a real testimony to your hard work and dedication ... we'll be back in a heartbeat!" July 14

"Lovely week, see you next year." August 14

"Fabulous, magical holiday that we will all remember fondly until our return. Just perfect." August 14

"Fantastic house - really comfortable yet ideal for children whatever the weather. Studio offers a couple some privacy. Beds and bed linen of high standard, shower rooms and bathrooms of high specification. The shower room is great after a swim. Kitchen is very well equipped with lots of pans, serving bowls, plates, knives and forks etc so you don't have to wash up to serve more than one course. Bring your own kitchen knifes." August 14. [Owners: we have now bought some better kitchen knives.]

"Very beautiful, yet friendly and relaxing, house. Facilities generous and space for people to come together or, should they choose, find some quiet space. I saw this house being built, and couldn't work it out - but now I get it, the view from the downstairs space is captivating. Believe it or not I'm not given to gushing, but I did, truly, love my stay at the Twitterings. We were all very sad to leave." September 14

"The Twitterings website is easy to use, accurate and informative.

This wonderful house is in an outstanding position directly on the beach at West Wittering. It is spacious, bright and very well equipped for either a large family or two families sharing." September 14

"Thank you so much for allowing us to borrow your beautiful beach house for our family Christmas 2014. We had a brilliant time." December 14

"Wonderful stay for kids and adults alike, the house is stunning and the views breathtaking. We loved it!" January 15

"Great family weekend - ages 5 months to 66 years. House well laid out and ideal for families. Greg house, great time, even the weather not too bad. Thank you." January 15

"Everything lovely and well considered. Will definitely be back.

What a perfect winter hideaway. So much light, so cosy - peace and goodwill radiating from me 'till I get back to London.... " February 15

"A very happy family weekend (4 siblings and 3 spouses); we loved the house (much the most stylish of the competitors!) and had three days of perfect blue winter sunshine. We mixed culture and birds(curlews, egrets, lapwings,etc) and we won a bottle of champagne at the Boxgrove Prioiry fair. Many thanks - it was all a delight." February 15

Twitterings - A Stunning New Beach House On The Sea Front At West Wittering.
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Fabulous house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We've just come back from an amazing weekend staying at this wonderful house. There were 9 of us all together (5 adults & 4 children) and twitterings exceeded our expectations. It is in immaculate condition, with a great layout in the perfect location and it is kitted out with everything you need. There was plenty of space for us all & we never felt on top of each other. Having the beach right on our doorstep was fantastic, the kids spent hours on the beach and we enjoyed relaxing on the balcony. It is definitely a place I'd love to stay in again!

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just spend the last two weeks at Twitterings with family member from the UK and Middle East gathering in this wonderful house to create some great memories. At our busiest we were 6 adults and three children so we occupied the house and Venici, the separate annexe but never felt crowded. The proximity to the sea encouraged three grandchildren to become avid body boarders. It was an excellent time! We were met on arrival and shown how everything worked. Great customer service during our stay and the house is equipped to a very high standard. All amenities are within walking distance, weather permitting, and this holiday will be talked about for a long time. For the last few days we were on our own and the house works for family events or just a relaxing time as a couple. Thanks for a wonderful venue. Lynn Griffiths

What a place. We were down here only last week, for a longed for big family holiday (6 adults and 4 children - aged 0 -7 years!). The house were perfect for our needs; the downstairs in particular was perfect for the children who were constantly soaking wet after being dunked in the sea and needed to be changed / dried in one of the various bathrooms and big utility room! The layout and materials used meant it was just perfect for wet conditions / muddy boots etc.

The 2 x 'chill out' areas downstairs were also brilliant. Perfect for when one section of our party wanted a bit of peace and quiet away from the main living area (open plan kitchen / living room) upstairs.

The studio (Venici) was spot on for 2 of us adults and a baby to stay in - and again done to a very high spec. The garden was great for the dog who came with us, and we really could not have wanted for a single thing.

We've stayed in 3 houses along this stretch now, and they have all been brilliant. However this house (The Twitterings) definitely wins hands down of you want a place suitable for toddlers / small children to have a fantastic time in.

I highly recommend staying in this house. We hope to return!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for large families, or those like us, who have several families with small children sharing a week by the sea. Plus a dog!

The house is well set out with a good ratio of beds to bathrooms and different spaces within the house where you can escape for some quiet time or join in the fun.

The location is fantastic for the local shops and eateries of East Wittering and the sand dunes and beach of West Wittering. The views from the house simply can't be beaten. The house had all the amenities we required and both the owner and the housekeeper could not have been more helpful throughout the process. We look forward to going back soon.

Just what the Dr ordered!

  • 5 of 5

Really needed a break! OMG how lucky we were with the weather and this place. We spent the whole weekend on the balcony watching the sun the moon and the stars. Property is beautiful and the furniture and fixings of great quality. Our springer had an amazing time running and playing. Loads of cooking and serving utensils - I am a one for cooking and do everything from scratch and didn't want for anything. The local shops are in walking distance and have everything you could want - (I didn't know they were so good) however I got Tescos to deliver as we arrived. Views are amazing and the beach is incredible - we watched horses everyday. We had the bedroom door open every night and listened to the sea as we went to sleep. Fab shower room and luxurious baths. Wet suits for use and loads of games.I would not be renting this property out if it were mine! I'd be living there!!!....Log burner if you feel chilli. Great weekend and wish we had been able to stay a week.. . . .Thank you
