“Perfect for a four generation beach holiday”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This rental worked very well for us. It was very child friendly with a wonderfully spacious through lounge and kitchen and good sized bedrooms. My elderly mother slept downstairs next to the bathroom which was helpful. The beds were all comfy and we made good use of the garden for eating outside and playing on the slide , giant bean bag, and other toys. It was a very short walk to the beach and we swam every day. It was also handy being near the shops etc in East Wittering. I would highly recommend this property. Lots of attention to detail including a bottle of fizz on arrival! Thank you Bob and Georgie.

Reviewed 5 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Thornton is a beautiful spacious home in an excellent location, just a short stroll to the beach & excellent facilities in nearby east wittering village.
We spent most of our time all together in the well equipped kitchen/lounge, large enough for 2 families to enjoy!.
We were lucky enough to have some great weather and spent a day at beautiful west wittering sandy beach followed by a short stroll to East Head. It truly was wonderful to return back after a day out to a warm, cozy comfortable holiday home.
Perfect...

Thankyou so much Georgie & Bob!

“Perfect home for a 3 generation family.”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely house, very thoughtfully equipped and beautifully decorated. The whole family loved the open plan downstairs area and the bedrooms were all very roomy and comfortable. Well situated too, just a short walk to the sea-front or the local shops. If I had to find any fault at all, I think we could have made use of a little bit bigger garden, but absolutely nothing else to complain about!
The owners made the whole booking process easy too, very helpful and welcoming.

“Top Quality seaside accommodation”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Thornton is excellent accommodation, beautifully presented with every amenity you could want to make your stay really comfortable and easy. There is plenty of space for up to 8 people, comfy beds, 3 bathrooms and a very well equipped kitchen. The rear garden is a well secluded suntrap with plenty of seating and the use of a bar-b-q.
It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac with an easy 5 minute walk to the beach or shops which both have all you need for a seaside holiday.
Rain or shine, Thornton is 'spot on' for quality seaside accommodation

Many thanks for taking the time to submit such a positive review. We love being able to walk to the village shops with its traditional butchers, fishmongers, bakery, sweet shop and grocers. A real throw back in time to traditional village life!

“To quote Mary Poppins - Practically perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 28 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

You always take a leap of faith when booking something online, especially when travelling from abroad. I am happy to say that Thornton is as good, if not better in real life than in the photos. Spacious, comfortable. light and airy, clean. well equipped and perfectly placed for our excursions & meetings with family members. Communication with the owners was also perfect. I would have absolutely no hesitation in staying there again.
If you like fish & chips - Moby's is the place to go!

“Great house in a quiet location near beach, shops and restaurants”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a great week here, despite being peak season it never felt really packed like other seaside UK destinations. Fabulous house; spacious and very well equipped. East Wittering beach is close by and a hidden gem at low tide when the sand comes out. Would definitely recommend staying here.
