House | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Set in the small fishing town of Selsey, 8 miles from Chichester, Beach House really offers you a way to have an all year round unforgettable family holiday. A fantastic light, open plan living room leads onto the well equipped kitchen which includes a dishwasher, gas cooker, double oven and american style fridge/freezer. It also leads to a conservatory space so is ideal for friends and family to cook and eat together.
Stepping out of the french doors from either the kitchen or living room directly onto the patio- with the sea being only a stone's throw from the house- there really is no excuse not to have a swim! Don't worry, if you get cold there is always the option of warming up in the sauna. There is a separate, contemporary dining room which also has side access to the gas BBQ. A handy utility room offers a washing machine, tumble dryer and plenty of space for coats, shoes and your buckets and spades. There is also a seperate 'den' for the kids to escape to with DVD's and games table.
Take your time to enjoy the sea where the waters are shallow and the tide can go out a few hundred yards be it swimming, diving, kite surfing, windsurfing, fishing, fossil hunting, making sandcastles or just looking out over the view to the Isle of Wight. The famous East and West Witterings are also just 20 and 40 minutes beach walk away.

|Further details outdoors|
There is a garden to the side and direct access to the beach. The tide can go out a long way leaving only sand and the famous Selsey fossils to explore.
Unfortunately all of the bedrooms are upstairs, making this unsuitable for either the elderly or disabled that cannot manage stairs. Two of the double rooms are only accessible via a spiral staircase.
The South East England region
This area is Britain's sunniest place to live, which offers hopefully plenty of hours to explore the area. Selsey is a relatively quiet fishing town, 8 miles from Chichester, which is a city not to be missed. With it's famous cathedral theatre, festivals and shops there is so much to do. Or you could explore the wonderful South Downs and have a gentle walk or exert yourself a little more and try some mountain biking. There is also the option of mountain boarding (not for the faint-hearted!) Brighton is close by or how about a day trip to the Isle of Wight?
Selsey also hosts the Selsey Festival, Lifeboat Week, Firework Night and the Christmas Parade. Also, of the main local attractions is Pagham Harbour nature reserve which visitors flock to, (just a short walk along east beach shore) for the south coast’s finest bird watching.This unique area has quite rightly been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Chichester Festival, Glorious Goodwood, Festival of Speed, Fontwell Races, the South Downs, Brighton and many other possibilities to explore.
The house is also great as a base to visit other locations in Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey etc. London is also only an hour and a half away, easily accessible by train or car.
