Holiday cottage, Bosham, West Sussex
"Unfortunately there was a communication problem and the house was not cleaned before our arrival. Fortunately the previous tenants had left it so nicely we didn't notice at first, but we didn't have any clean bedding or towels... Not nice. The house is well designed and appointed and in a nice location, but it rained solidly so we didn't have a chance to use the outside area. Beware: The pale coloured blinds in the main bedroom do not keep the sun out. We were not used to this so the light woke us up early. There is limited kitchen equipment for a house for 5. A couple of ovenproof dishes and a bigger saucepan would help. "
Yes we are very sorry that the house was not prepared for you and we apologise for that. When this was realised it was rectified immediately by the housekeeper. Thankfully this is a rarity but we thank you for your understanding.
Comfortable cottage, noisy trains!
"A comfortable cottage, with well equipped kitchen. Close to lots of attractions, only 30 minutes drive to Portsmouth historic dockyard. Lovely location although closer to the train line than we appreciated. We got used to the train noise fairly quickly though."
Lovely modern cottage in great location
"This was our second stay at Weir View. The location is excellent - close to local shops, pub, restaurant and transport (buses and train). The lounge is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. When the weather is fine you can sit out overlooking the weir. The cottage sleeps five but, whilst the spacious ensuite double room and the single room have wardrobes and drawers for clothes, the compact twin room only has a dressing table - no wardrobe or drawers for clothes. Overall an excellent place to stay. "
A Most Enjoyable Stay!
"We really enjoyed our time in Weir View. The house is nicely situated with good views over the weir and the local birdlife added to the tranquil atmosphere. All the furniture and bedding was of a high standard and the house is well looked after. Transport links are good and it just a few miles to Chichester by road, rail or bus. Bosham harbour is close by too and it is an ideal place for delightful walks. Weir View provided all we needed for a totally relaxing holiday and we hope we may be able to return in the not too distant future!"
A pleasant stay
"A comfortable end of terrace house. Fairly spacious downstairs, good TV with apps so I could use Amazon video when I was there. Kitchen missing a few items such as weighing scales, grater and a bin! Lots of storage space. Useful downstairs toilet and ensuite upstairs although the shower head was leaky. The children loved the stream with accompanying ducks and peacocks, however it was quite noisy at night. Short walk to the train station for easy trip to Chichester. West Wittering beach was lovely for the children. We were lucky to have amazing weather, sunny every day. Owners could probably benefit from a maintenance book so that things could be logged, such as the remote to the sound bar didn't work and the hook on the ensuite bathroom door was loose. Mirror would be useful in the main bedroom. "
Thank you for drawing a few points to our attention which are being attended to. The kitchen items have been added to and the hooks tightened. Unfortunately the sound bar had been turned off so our apologies you did not have this to use. It is a lovely setting next to the stream and the weir, so we are pleased that your children loved it along with the beach at the Witterings.
"Very comfortable and warm house, just right for a December holiday. It provided a good base for visiting the Portsmouth and Chichester area. For two couples it was spacious although the second bedroom was a tad on the small side and would have benefited having either a small wardrobe or chest of drawers. We enjoyed our stay in Weir View very much."
Wonderful autumn break
"Lovely accommodation in a very pretty area. Easy access to places of interest. Cottage very nicely fitted out, modern and clean,with plenty of room for the family. The only gripe was a lack of heat from the radiator by the dinning room table(not working) so insufficient heat in the lounge, otherwise a most enjoyable stay. "
"The property is actually an end terrace house with a view over a weir and pond on the stream. The house is probably about ten years old and is beautifully furnished. Downstairs there is a lovely lounge/dining room with french doors, a fully equipped kitchen and a downstairs toilet. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms - one double bedded room (to the front) with ensuite, one small twin bedded room, one small single bedded room and a bathroom with shower. The property is five minutes walk to the nearest pub, restaurant, local buses and the train station. However, you can hear the trains racing past early in the morning. Overall, it is an excellent property in a great location."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Weir View. We know Bosham well yet didn't know this Weir was hidden away behind the houses. The owners couldn't have been more kind and considerate. Highly recommend their house. Thank you!"
Built on the banks of the Mill Pond in north Bosham, Weir View presents a great retreat from which to escape for a few restful days away. Set amongst a small cluster of townhouses and private apartments overlooking the weir, this house is in a great location between Chichester and Emsworth. It is just one mile north of Bosham's stunning quayside setting, and only two miles west of the cathedral city of Chichester.
The house is perfect for up to four adults or for a family of five. The living space is bright with good space. Feature doors open out onto the patio and being west facing, the warmth of the evening sun is captured in the longer summer days.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The principal bedroom with its Juliet balcony overlooks the weir. It is a lovely bright room with an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom has twin beds and the third bedroom has the single bed. There is a family bathroom which is fitted with a bath and shower attachment above.
The outside patio is a welcoming decked area that opens out onto a lawn that slopes towards the mill pond and the resident ducks. It is completely open which means we regret the house is not suitable for families with children under six years of age.
Chichester Harbour is an area of outstanding natural beauty with a plethora of wildlife which co-exists at ease with the sailing activity that abounds. It is made up of a series of tidal creeks and Bosham is probably the best known of the quayside villages within the harbour and offers much of interest. From Weir View it is only a mile down to the quayside. The coast road round to the quay floods twice daily giving Bosham a changing outlook between low and high water. The church which is prominent in the village dates back to Saxon times, the earliest parts having been constructed during Canute’s reign and it is the only church to be depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry. Bosham is always bustling and is a joy to be part of. The arts and craft centre, a popular visitor attraction contains many small craft shops with their own speciality and the Anchor Bleu pub which is so central to the village and the quay is popular for lunches and has that ‘local’ atmosphere in the evenings.
To walk the coast road around Bosham Reach is a delight offering fine views of the village and beyond towards the South Downs. You will soon arrive at Bosham Hoe and can take the foot ferry that connects with Itchenor, another popular sailing centre.
Two miles east of Bosham is Chichester, which is the cathedral city for Sussex. It is one of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK. Chichester has played a key role in the affairs of Sussex since at least Roman times. The city’s broad streets are packed with listed buildings headed by the towering presence of the cathedral, now home to a family of peregrine falcons who swoop over the city at dusk
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.
