A 5 star holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely week at Coastguards cottage. It has been one of the best cottages we have stayed- the cottage, the sunny garden and the location all made our holiday a wonderful experience. We had chosen the area because it was somewhere new and quite near to some of our family but now we can't understand why we hadn't been before. The area is absolutely beautiful and to have this right on the doorstep of the cottage just couldn't have been better. We enjoyed many walks around East Head and along the beach to East Wittering, walked to Itchenor which was stunning and simply enjoyed watching the different tidalscapes at Snowhill Creek with so much birdlife. We met so many friendly people too, just can't understand why we hadn't explored the area before and then at the end of the day we had such a lovely cottage to relax in. Also we found that the cottage was brilliant when we had family visitors on the Sunday. A short walk for an hour so on the beach at East Head and then bak to the cottage for lunch in the garden. We really hope to revisit. Many thanks

Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous, beautifully decorated, warm house with great bird-watching from the front bedroom! Nice neighbours too. There's absolutely tons to do in the area, esp with bikes: swimming, exploring the salt marsh, bussing into Chichester, fish and chips from East Wittering, harbour tours within walking distance, crabbing, bass fishing, horse-riding and much more.

Cosy comfortable cottage .. Ideal for walks straight from the front door!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very well looked after and we had the benefit of brand new carpet throughout... My husband found the stairs quite steep but was getting used to them by the end of the week ...

Beds are extremely comfortable too! We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked to come back!

We really enjoyed our week at the coastguard cottage. The area is so stunning with wonderful walks right on your doorstep. We swam at east head from the beautiful sandy beach. Ten out of ten for this lovely holiday home.
