East Wittering and beyond

Marine House is situated just 200 metres from East Wittering beach which is typical of many beaches along England's south coast with its shelving shingle and wooden groynes. As the tide goes out expansive sand flats are revealed - the kind of sand that is perfect for building sand castles! Further along the coast and you come to the famous beach at West Wittering which is a beautiful stretch of sand offering stunning views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight, and merging seamlessly with the East Head Nature Reserve a totally unspoilt headland at the entrance to Chichester Harbour. It is a wonderful piece of coastline to explore and enjoy.

It is a wonderful piece of coastline to explore and enjoy.

Pagham Harbour, which is six miles from Marine House, is a glorious and peaceful nature reserve, one of the few undeveloped stretches of the Sussex coast, and an internationally important wetland site for wildlife. It is a big, sheltered inlet that fills and empties with each tide, with wild ducks, geese and wading birds flighting to and fro. With a wealth of wildlife, beautiful landscapes, and a rich historical heritage, it is a great place to get away from it all. In spring and autumn, all sorts of migrant birds pass through. In the summer, lapwings and little terns breed, and butterflies flit along the hedgerows, dragonflies patrol the ponds, and lizards bask in the sun.

Chichester, ten miles north of East Wittering, is the cathedral city for Sussex. It is one of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK. The city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls, and this helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot. There are plenty of good shops and restaurants, and if you enjoy the theatre, the Chichester Festival Theatre is worth booking due not only to the quality of productions, but the fact many world premieres are featured here as well. For the film buff the cinema complex to the south of the city also make for an enjoyable evening out.

Chichester Harbour is also well worth a visit, as an area of outstanding natural beauty it has a plethora of wildlife which shares this delightful area with the sailing activity that abounds. The harbour is made up of a series of tidal creeks and Bosham is probably the best known of the quayside villages and offers much of interest. Bosham is always bustling and is a joy to visit.

The Goodwood Estate, which is half an hours drive from Marine House, is where you can enjoy the premier motorsport events as well as Glorious Goodwood racing festival. Or, of course, you can explore the wonders Goodwood House which combines the glamour of a great English country house with the warmth of a family home. Home to the Earl and Countess of March this elegant Sussex house provides a dramatic setting for one of the most significant private art collections in the country.

Spacious, light and airy house only close to the beach and town

"Three generations of our family judged Marine House to be one of the best holiday homes any of us had stayed in. We enjoyed many games of pool, and other games provided, and made excursions to Bosham, Isle of Wight, Chichester and Arundel. We loved the spacious garden which is south facing with a hot outdoor shower. Marine House is also very convenient - only two minutes walk to the beach and 5 minutes to the shops which made for a very relaxing break. "

Ideal house in a great location

"This was a great modern house with all the home comforts we required. We took our two young grandchildren who enjoyed playing in the garden which was a enclosed and safe. It was also a very short walk to the beach.With the open plan kitchen leading on to the garden we spent most of the time downstairs but did spend time relaxing in the very comfortable lounge in the evening. It was very home from home and loved it. "

Great weekend in a lovely house

"Marine House was a little hard to find but once we arrived we received a very warm welcome from Lucie. The house itself was spacious and very comfortable - perfect for our two-family group. The kitchen area was very sociable with room to spread out and on a winter weekend we made good use of the wood burner and pool table. The children enjoyed the selection of games and loved playing hide and seek in the house. The location was very convenient for both the shore and the shops of East Wittering. Lucie's tips for places to eat were great and we had a lovely meal at Billy's Beach Caf?. We brought bikes and enjoyed cycling along the coast - although beware the head wind! We would also recommend the Weald and Downland Museum nearby. The only improvement we could suggest to the house would be a review of the kitchen equipment. Another non-stick frying pan would have been appreciated, as would replacing some of the older glassware with matching sets. Overall, though, a fabulous house and we really hope to return. "

Christmas at Marine Drive

"We were lucky to have stayed at Marine Drive for Christmas which is in a very good position close to the village and the beach. Lovely en-suite bedroom with a fantastic shower also the main bathroom had really good shower. Fabulous well stocked kitchen with thoughtful touches like milk and teabags and a bottle of wine thankyou!. I was a bit worried about the stairs as there was a 2 year old in the party but the owner Lucy kindly organised a stairgate and a cot. "
