Spacious, clean and with all required amenities

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a lovely part of the country. The house was more than big enough for our family of 5 and the garden is enormous and brilliant for the kids to play in. Can't fault the property in any way.

Spacious, comfortable, great location, every mod con - super garden. There was nothing to fault in Mole Cottage and we loved the conservatory as well. Owners were sympathetic and replied rapidly to any query. Very quiet environment and only a short drive from Bracklesham Bay. Strongly recommend the fishmonger and butcher in East Wittering.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful and quiet and we were lucky with the weather as we could have breakfast out in the garden. The house was very comfortable and had everything you would need to make a stay perfect. Books, films games for all were available. Easy to find and handy for a quick shopping trip into Chichester which is only just up the road. Christine was very accommodating to our needs. The house was just right for our family gathering that we did for the first time.

Just a note of caution...If you go out and need a cab ALWAYS book the return journey as the cabs/taxi's around the local area are in short supply late evening and you may find difficulty getting one home again! We were lucky as a member of staff at our restaurant took us home (and in 2 journeys too)

Lovely spacious holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this spacious, comfortable, well equipped home with a big garden. Ocado deliver to this address.

It's in a quiet road with fields to the rear with horses in, but not far from to west wittering beach which is a lovely sandy beach great for the children and the fish and chips there are great. We also visited Fishbourne Palace, Tangmere Air museum, Staunton country park, Portsmouth historic dock and Arundale Castle and enjoyed all of these. Chichester is close by but we didn't explore that on this holiday apart from dinner at Pizza Hut one evening.

We would definitely stay here again.

I didn't see any plastic children's plates so anyone with younger children might want to take plastic plates/cups with them.

Well equiped, spacious house in quiet location.

  • 4 of 5

This lovely well stocked house in a quiet location is even more spacious than it appears in the photos. Ample hot water, large walk in shower and a heated towel rail in the en-suite - bliss!! Wrap round garden is fenced and safe for children. Good location for visiting local beaches in 8-10 minutes and 36 minutes from Portsmouth etc (traffic permitting!) We were spared the constant "are we nearly there yet?" from two excited children when going to the beach. Would definitely recommend.
