About the Owner

We are a family of four who have been visiting West Wittering for over 25 years. We were fortunate enough to buy our house in 2008 and love our frequent visits and the wonderful outdoor life it offers. The children horse ride, sail, kayak, play tennis, swim and generally play on the beach. We all enjoy the long beach and coastal walks and bike rides that are available on our doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderful weekend away! Paul took so much care and effort prior to our arrival - and you could really tell... What a super host. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect size for 9/10 people to hang out. The location is also excellent - the beach at west wittering is simply stunning and there are plenty of good walks. Lastly, the DVD collection and little extras (coffee, games etc) really made the weekend!

Lovely large property, set in beautiful garden. I stayed here with my family so ages ranged from 4 to over 70 and everyone had a great time. The kitchen and lounge are huge and fit everyone comfortably and there's lots to keep the kids entertained - the trampoline in the garden was a firm favourite! The location is great, close to the beach, with friendly cafes and pubs serving nice food nearby.

Laura July 2015



The photos and the description of the house was spot on. Paul sent us information about the area which was very helpful in working out what we wanted to do. The house is perfect for a group of friends and is child friendly as well. I would highly recommend staying here if you are up for beach walks and a relaxing atmosphere.

Tania March 2015





A large family home in a perfect setting, with everything needed for the perfect stay. Everything was ready for a lovely Christmas - including a Christmas Tree and the heating on. Paul did everything he could to make our stay a success.

The village has everything within walking distance - the best beach, a well stocked village shop, and welcoming pub with log fire and reasonably priced menu. Julia Dec 2014



Lovely unassuming house in a great seaside village. Although we didn't meet our host Paul he was extremely helpful from the offset. Set back from a nice pub & just up the road from the costal path, this great home made for the perfect winter break with friends (i'm sure it'd be even nicer in the Summer!). The house was nice and clean with fresh linen & bedding provided. Comprehensive maps, suggestions and directions emailed before arriving. Highly recommended.

Ben Nov 2014



The house was everything we had hoped for and more. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were very comfy and was all well set out.

Paul was extremely helpful at helping us get there from London and making sure we had everything we needed. The nearby beach which is only a 5 minute walk was beautiful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for nice place to stay

Fabulous stay, great location, exceptionally well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Great communication from start to finish with Paul. We had a short but fabulous stay at this wonderful house.

Great location, just a short walk to the lovely beach. Lovely cafe next door to the house, we organised for fresh pastries to be delivered to our door in the morning...a nice treat. Good little village shop and a really great butcher.

Everything you could need is available, we were a large group with children from 10months to 13yrs and they all had a ball.

Highly recommended

The perfect Easter break

  • 5 of 5

We spent this Easter at The Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our break. The Cottage was well equipped and with 3 small children in the party this made the break easy and most importantly relaxing! Paul was extremely accommodating by installing stair gates and providing a travel cot and high chair. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone wanting a near to beach weekend or holiday.

A fantastic stay in this large victorian house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house over the Christmas period and found it to be superb! It is in a lovely setting with pretty cottages around it. It is an easy walk to the beach - saving you £8 a day parking during the summer. There is a nice coffee shop nearby (artisan coffee) and a good little grocery store. The house itself was very clean and well appointed. There is plenty of space even for the largest groups. The kitchen has lots of utensils and a huge range cooker. The showers are fine and the bath huge! There is an enormous DVD collection including a lot of very modern films. I would highly recommend it and hope to go back one summer.

Lovely house, a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at The Cottage, it was perfect for us. We were celebrating a birthday and were a party of 8, (including 2 grandchildren of 6 years and 8 years). The owner was easily contactable to sort out any questions we had and also very helpful. Great size garden and an easy walk to the beach. We all had a very memorable stay.
