A superbly presented and well modernised fisherman's cottage built in 1850. This town centre property is tucked away in a quiet conservation area Cul-de-Sac, just west of the main pedestrian shopping area of the town centre and a few yards from the sea front. Worthing mainline railway station is approximately ½ mile to the north.

This is a charming stable doored cottage which is deceptively spacious. It features an open plan ground floor lounge and dining room, fully modernised and well equipped kitchen, large stylish bathroom and 2 good sized bedrooms. There is a log burner in the lounge and cast iron radiators in all rooms. We have furnished the cottage to give it a 'shabby' chic coastal theme.

The master bedroom has a great vintage king sized brass bed, bought in New York from the Brooklyn Brass Bed Company and it has a new divan and memory foam mattress on it. Ample storage is provided by way of a wardrobe/ armoire and chest of drawers and we have tried to keep a feeling of age by buying these from Brighton's antique shops.

The second smaller sized bedroom, which, to maximise space, we have put a new Laura Ashley day bed in which has a second bed below . This can easily be pulled out to accommodate two people sleeping in the room.

There is also a luxury Travel cot available to use if you have a baby in the family.

The lounge area has 2 sofas plus a footstool and arm chair and there is also a tdining area with a table with seating for 4 people -ideal for entertaining. The main lounge area has a 22 inch tv/dvd, virgin satellite system and there is also wireless Wi-Fi installed. There is a good selection of games, magazines, books, dvds and even a doll's house/shop for children to play with.

The modern well equipped kitchen has an electric fan range oven with a gas hob, grill, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. We have ensured that there are ample good quality cooking and dining utensils for you to use should you wish to dine in.

The outside area can be used for off street parking or, if you prefer, close the gates and sit outside with a cup of tea or glass of wine!

Fisherman's Cottage is within one minute of the many excellent local restaurants, bars and shops. Stroll to the seafront in under 2 minutes (less than100 meters).The train station is 10 minutes walk away and trains to London and Gatwick run every 30 minutes and journey time to Gatwick is 40 mins . 1 hour and 20 mins to Central London (Victoria Station) - frequent trains also run to Brighton and Portsmouth.

The West Sussex region

The South East England / Sussex region

Everything is on your doorstep whether you are looking for a relaxing break or keen to experience all that Worthing and West Sussex has to offer with its lively seaside town, picturesque location or arts and heritage.

The South Downs National Park can easily be accessed from Worthing and covers an area of 627 square miles, 2/3 of which is in Sussex.

From Beachy Head near Eastbourne in the East to Harting Down in the West, the South Downs includes some of the most varied English landscapes in the country, including open chalk grassland, ancient forests and lush river valleys perfect to explore on foot or by bike and has something for everyone.

From gentle routes to more challenging trails you're never far away from breath taking scenery in West Sussex.

The Worthing area

Worthing is a great spot to stay as you can get to many attractions easily. London is assessable in under 11/2 hours by rail, coach or car. Other places that are easy to visit are Brighton, Arundel and Chichester.

Worthing and the surrounding area's offer lots of activities for children including adventure farms, Bluebell Railway, Drucilla's, Peppa Pig World and Fishers Farm are all within easy travelling distance.

There are also miles of open unspoilt beaches to run around on, go rock pooling or sit and just to eat some great local fish and chips. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round from Splash Point away from town.

Worthing is situated in the heart of the beautiful county of West Sussex, which has a wide variety of landscapes, from the coastal plains with its beaches, to the South Downs and The Weald with their forests and miles of country walks. You'll find a world of beautiful Sussex countryside, castles, country houses, parks, the beautiful South Downs, forts and gardens are all just moments away

Take a step back in time at fascinating historic houses, castles and windmills, gardens, family fun, wonderful wildlife and charming Sussex villages, there's plenty for everyone within easy reach.

Combine the beach and open countryside for a break with a difference. The popular, dog friendly 'Bluebird' seafront cafe is a great place to spend a few leisurely hours.

The magic of Sussex is that you will never be far from the sea and the rugged coastline, with dramatic white cliffs drop to secluded rocky bays, shingle beaches and swathes of golden sand.

Why not explore the countryside by taking a walk on the South Downs, through beautiful bluebell woods and ancient royal forests, or be inspired by exotic plantings and old-fashioned roses in the glorious garden of the Sussex Weald

"A place to stay"

The moment I saw the Fisherman's cottage online I knew it was just what we had been looking for and we were not disappointed. What a delightful, cosy and very comfortable place to spend a holiday… More

Fantastic review from fantastic guests. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

"Comfortable, cosy cottage in a great location"

Fishermans Cottage was a lovely surprise. A warm welcome from the owner. Welcome pack was a very nice touch - even a fresh pineapple! The kitchen was very well equipped although we dined out most evenings at the great choice of restaurants within walking distance in the town. In fact we didn't use the car at all. The lounge has very comfy sofas and a cosy woodburner. The main bedroom is lovely and it was great to have a large bathroom with separate shower. Would definitely like to stay again.

Lovely guests in every way. Our cottage was left spotless and they were so appreciative of the amenities and welcome basket.

"We will be back, our stay at the cottage was everything we wanted it to be."

Anna And Carole helped our stay get off to a great start by graciously offering to pick us up from the train station. The cottage isn't far but our arrival had been delayed and we were new to the area so this little touch was much appreciated. When we got to the cottage it was even better than we expected- downstairs living area much bigger than I thought it would be, all rooms very well decorated, homely, comfortable, and with everything you would ever need. There was a lovely welcome basket of goodies for our first breakfast- my daughter loved the coissants and fresh figs, and after a long journey it was good to have milk at hand for a cup of tea. We had the cottage for 4 days as we were attending a family wedding which was held on the Pier. - The cottage was very central for this and the many other amenities you want when you are visiting. We couldn't have picked a better location for our visit - we wanted a 'home from home' and that is exactly what we got. Thank you Anna and Carole- we will be back!

One of the joys of running a holiday cottage is meeting lovely new guests. Super people and lovely guests.
