About the Owner

In 1988 Sally and I moved to this delightful property here on the beach. I will always remember that day in the summer as we drove over to the beach it was warm tranquil and the Orange blossom I had taken and attached to the roof of the car was shedding petals. Since then with the calmness of the sea views to the downs and endless opportunities to swim walk the beach ,study the birds fauna and sunsets has left me with no doubt that this was the perfect place to live. As a busy manager always having to drive I hated having to leave our peaceful island coming home though was always like holidays. My interests range from the beach to rugby and then Medievil history I have enough time now to follow all!

Clean, comfortable and cosy retreat by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

I had a work placement in Shoreham by Sea for 6 months from September 2015 through to March 2016. Palm Tree Cottage was an ideal place to stay during this time because, although attached the owners house, the separate entrance allowed me to come and go as I pleased. Trevor and Sally could not be more friendly and accommodating, offering to get me anything that I needed. The cottage is clean and comfortable and, to be honest, did not lack anything for my prolonged stay. Access to Brighton was very easy, being just 15 minutes away on the frequent train service.

Shoreham Beach is a lovely place to stay, with a 20 minute walk into the charming town centre and a 2 minute walk across the road to the beach itself. The beach is shingle and has a new boardwalk, which is fantastic for evening walks or running after work. There are a few shops 10 minutes walk from the cottage, including a bakery, newsagent and general store, which are very useful. There is also a good children’s park a further 5 minutes away, next to the interesting collection of houseboats that line the tidal estuary of the River Adur.

All in all, Palm Tree Cottage is a clean, comfortable and cosy retreat that suited my purposes for somewhere to unwind after work. The location on Shoreham Beach added to this relaxed feeling and the owners are very friendly and helpful. I would return again with my (small) family or if I need to stay close to Brighton again.
