Big windows let the light, and any sunshine, flood into this warm and comfy house. You’re on a quiet road near other houses but the garden wraps around the house completely so you’ll feel private. Let young children and dogs potter in and out with the door open; the garden is secure and big enough for Grandmother’s footsteps, rounders, a big barbecue in the evening.
Older children and teenagers will be off, Swallows and Amazon style, down the quiet lane to the Marina and its watery fun. You can kayak or paddle board here, or hire bikes and join the Salterns Way for the wonderful white sand beach at West Wittering.
This is a much-loved holiday home and has been for generations, so you’ll find books, antiques and original art on the walls, basics in the cupboards and all you need for a cup of tea and biscuits when you arrive. The sitting room is big enough for everybody if the weather turns grim and there’s a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty.
