Overview

About the property

West Wittering, Sussex Beautiful Cottage Close To Harbour & Short Walk to Beach

Beautiful Grade 2 listed cottage 200 metres from the sheltered tidal Snowhill Creek at the entrance of Chichester Harbour. With the Sailing Club opposite, and a short walk to the to the famous West Wittering beach, Windsurfing Club, bird reserves and the National Trust sand dunes of East Head.

The cottage is part of a row of former Coastguard Cottages, built around 1833, with small garden to the front and a small yard to the rear. Three bedrooms comprised of double bed, two singles and smaller ground floor bedroom with bunk bed. Cottage is small and compact and perfectly formed! It is cozier than the photos indicate!

Temporary sailing club membership might be available and would require contacting the Sailing Club secretary via their web site. In addition, we have contacts with many of the local sailing instructors. Sailing is possible two to three hours either side of high tide.

Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our week here. The property is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Peaceful location and a great place to walk or cycle from. In addition to the amazing beach, we really enjoyed exploring the estuary and cycling on the salterns way.

A neat and well-equipped cottage in an attractive setting.

  • 4 of 5

There's everything one needs at this pretty cottage for an enjoyable break. It's comfortable and neatly appointed. The sea is a few minutes walk away and there is a good pub nearby, as well as an excellent café and a restaurant. Plenty of shops at East Wittering and lovely Chichester is a short drive or bus ride away. Recommended.

Wonderful place, very peaceful location, always very quiet. Charming period cottage with genuine character, perfectly equipped for all that could be needed. Very comfortable, perfect place to relax entirely, excellent for children, very safe. Hospitable, thoughtful and kind hosts. Always a memorable and refreshing time. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything that you could want for your stay. The kitchen is well equipped, clean and tidy. Very good quality bedding. Very nice views from upstairs front bedroom. Beautiful garden. Pool for crabbing just 5 minutes walk and beach 5 minutes further. There is also plenty to do in the immediate area and beyond. All five of us have said since being back that we wished we were still there.

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.
