This is the perfect place for Children to really go adventuring by themselves There are many bicycles and the road is super quite, the kids can just roam free. The house has these two enormous children bedrooms in the top, one for boys and one for girls... it's a long succession of midnight feasts and trips to the sweetshops.

Adults get to play croquet, swim in the typically chilly English Channel and enjoy good food, relaxing times and lots of chit chat.

So for families you couldn't think of anything better.

Thank you. So glad you all enjoyed what Carousel and the South Coast have to offer. Very impressed with your shrimping abilities. The children looked like they had a ball. Come again soon!

Amazing accommodation and beautiful surroundings.

Perfect for our hen weekend away.
Rounders on the large grass area by the beach, a paddle in the sea on the private beach, followed by games in the house and lovely food cooked in the very well equipped kitchen.
Beds were very comfortable and lots of wash rooms!

Had a wonderful time and the owner was extremely approachable and helpful.

I would not hesitate to stay here again! And I highly recommend this place to others!

Thanks you carousel! Many amazing memories created from our stay! Xx

“Beautiful house in a stunning location”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Perfect house for large groups. We were 13 adults and 4 children - all very impressed by the size and location.
Fantastic downstairs space for entertaining and lovely garden for relaxing and playing games.
Loved the beach across the road! Stunning views and very quiet given it was bank holiday.
Rupert was responsive to all our questions and Anthony very helpful when we got there. Highly recommended.

“Modern capacious house in outstanding location”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a lovely weekend at Carousel House. The location right by the sea was excellent and the huge enclosed garden was great for children to run around in safely.
The open plan layout on the ground floor made it perfect for our family party celebrations.
The owners responded very quickly to my communications and were very helpful during our stay.
One tip for future visitors, there is not a name or no on the outside of the property. It is No 16,
We recognised it by the photo!

This is a wonderful house for a large group, we were there for our Mum's 90th birthday, my sister, our granddaughter and great nieces birthdays were also the week before. There were 17 of us in all. The bedrooms are enormous and the youngsters enjoyed the attic bedrooms with the connecting tunnel! If you could put mirrors in the bedrooms that would be great for us ladies to do our hair and make-up. The lounge/diner is a wonderful space and we didn't feel cramped at all and the kitchen is well equipped with anything you need. Anthony Corcorran who met us is a charming man and talked us through the house facilities on the first day and came back on the last day for us to hand back the keys. Many thanks for the use of you home.

“Fantastic stay, amazing location!”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A group of 13 of us stayed in this property for the weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better place for our weekend getaway! The house is so close to the beautiful beach and has gorgeous views of the South Downs on the other side! And it has a lovely open-plan layout which made the whole stay very sociable and comfortable!
