Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Tide Cottage is a self-catering holiday cottage with free wireless broadband just a few yards from the shore and a ten minute walk to the charming village of Emsworth in Hampshire. Within minutes you can be strolling along the coastal path, on a shoreline rich with birdlife, watching sailors and windsurfers on the water. With its sunny rooms and large garden, Tide Cottage is a great base for a family to enjoy beach life at the Witterings and Hayling Island, walks on the South Downs, historic Chichester, our naval heritage in Portsmouth (as well as the best restaurants and outlet shopping at the oceanside Gunwarf Quays shopping centre).
Accommodation. We've installed wireless broadband (selfishly, because we like being connected when on holiday). The well-equipped kitchen has a microwave, double oven, dishwasher, and washing machine. The bathroom has a power shower. The living room has a 32-inch TV with built-in DVD player and speakers to which you can also plug an MP3 player. You are welcome to put a dinghy or windsurfer in the front garden ... there's a slipway to the water at the bottom of our road. The back garden is huge, and the old walnut tree has a swing and a monkey swing seat. There is a healthy stock of toys, books and DVDs.
Tide Cottage sleeps six. There are two bedrooms: one with a super king bed with a deep mattress; the second, with twin beds and a bunk.

Emsworth is an excellent base for a family to enjoy beach life at the Witterings and Hayling Island, walks on the South Downs, historic Chichester, our naval heritage in Portsmouth with its tall ships and historic dockyard, as well as the best restaurants and outlet shopping at the oceanside Gunwarf Quays shopping centre.
There are delightful towns to explore on the various peninsulas lining Chichester Harbour such as Bosham (where King Canute was reputed to command the sea to turn back), Chidham, the Witterings and Selsey.
The South Downs is a short car ride away - Queen Elizabeth Country Park affords a steep walk up Butser Hill (you can also drive to the top if you wish) and there are wonderful walks around the Stoughton area. Further afield there's Arundel Castle and the historic city of Chichester.
Emsworth is town on a quiet corner of Chichester Harbour. it boasts a beautiful Mill Pond, an artificial lake created in the 1800s to draw tourism to the fishing town. There is a basin for small yachts, cruisers and fishing boats which fills at high tide and empties through a sluice at low tide. The town has a long history connected with oyster fishing and boat building and still boasts traditional shipwrights and chandleries.
The coast is ever changing as a result of the extreme tidal movements in the area. One moment, the ocean is full, with dinghies and windsurfers speeding along, the next, the water vanishes completely leaving a strange landscape of mud and seaweed, populated by all manner of birds and sea creatures. Swans are a particularly delightful feature and the summer brings the arrival of unusual birdlife.
Taking a westward walk along the coastal road, you will come upon Barn Nore woods, a popular location for dog walkers. It is half an hour to Langstone to the Royal Oak Pub - most impressive at high tide. If the Royal Oak is full, you can continue along to the Ship Inn beside the bridge to Hayling Island.
