Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
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!

This is a gorgeous cottage, spacious yet cosy, period yet with all mod cons. From the luscious, deep pile carpet to the very impressive brass bedstead it is furnished with care and taste. The new kitchen had everything we could wish for, including a beautiful, large oven. The slate bathroom is simply stunning. It is incredibly close to the sea and the town centre, everything is on your doorstep. It is in a quiet no through road so no traffic. All in all it was one of the best places I have ever stayed and the owners are lovely, warm, considerate people.
Thank you so much for your review. You were perfect guests and we hope you will stay again in the future.

Beautiful cottage in a great location just behind the seafront. Everything was laid out perfectly and the owners couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. Beautiful (and really comfortable) bed in the main bedroom and great bathroom and perfectly equipped and arranged kitchen. 10/10
Guests who treat your cottage with the care that they would give their own home are a blessing. These are guests that we would always welcome back as they were enthusiastic and respectful. Many thanks for staying with us.

"Stylish and Comfortable"
Anna and Carole were perfect landladies. Everything had been left immaculately clean and the house was pretty with all modern conveniences. The rooms were comfortable and the house is close to the beach and the town centre. I was working in Worthing and was happy to return to Fisherman's cottage every evening. A great home from home.
