Wonderful holiday - thank you

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location 10 mins walk from the best sandy beach I've ever seen. The cottage was clean, well maintained and felt homely. Well equipped (though a hairdryer would be useful). Very pretty peaceful garden. The owner was very friendly and came to help with the dishwasher.

Fantastic return visit to Snowhill Creek

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely week at this delightful cottage.We stayed in October 2016 and were so pleased to be able to book another week this June.

We thoroughly enjoyed being able to relax in the garden - having again had a week of fantastic weather or maybe the sun always shines in West Wittering??

The cottage is so nice and you are able to arrive knowing that everything you need is there for you. Beautifully clean and so comfortable.

The position is so good for walking nearby or or travelling around by car to explore the Chichester Harbour area.

A lovely place to be.

Incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous Easter week spent at Coastguards Cottage! The cottage is very well equipped. Julian and Rachael, the owners, were incredibly helpful with our pre-stay questions. Being on a private road, it is so peaceful. The proximity to the beach, 10 mins to the National Trust's East Head was a real treat. Thank you!

Perfect place to recharge

  • 5 of 5

6 Coastguard Cottage for me has been the perfect place to recharge my batteries. Long coastal walks right from the doorsteps have been great ... for me and even more so for my dog. It´s a good idea to come out of season, in high summer West Wittering migth loose it´s charm. Petra, Vienna
