“Great little hideaway”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Nice to find a self-catering place that you can book for short stays. We stayed two nights. Excellent location near the car park and harbour, set in a pretty little garden. Owner was nearby but gave us plenty of privacy.
Accommodation was small but well laid out, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of breakfast food left for us. Owner Doreen was very pleasant and helpful. Only tiny downside, weather was very hot, studio faces the sun so got very hot also, but I guess it was hot everywhere.....I would thoroughly recommend this for anyone who wants to stay in Bosham.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I stayed with my partner for 2 nights and the Courtyard Studio was just what we needed. The studio itself is surprisingly spacious and well thought out. Doreen was very helpful and friendly, even giving us some store cupboard essentials like bread, milk, tea and sugar. Bosham is very beautiful and the studio is just seconds away from the Quay. It's so picturesque and we both had a lovely time the only problem was it our time there was too short!

“A lovely cosy cottage with everything you need”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a lovely weekend here and couldn't recommend it more. Doreen was a great host and has the place in fab order with everything you could possibly need. She wasn't around the night we arrived but had organised her sister-in-law to let us in and it was as easy as pie. Lovely breakfast left and the place was warm with good instructions on the surrounding area. Definately worth a visit and the area is gorgeous too! Would recommend a meal at the Richmond Arms in West Ashling if you get the chance-make sure you book ahead!

“Wonderful find in Bosham”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My husband and I spent four nights at the Courtyard Studio. It was perfect for our needs. Delightfully decorated with everything thought of to make for a comfortable stay. Ideally positioned in the heart of the village close to the harbor. Doreen was very friendly and helpful with local information.

“The place I long to go back to.”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

The perfect place to have the peace and quiet that we all need in our lives at one time or another. The beautiful interior makes it the perfect place to play scrabble when its raining or come back to having been on the beach, no matter what the weather.
The thoughtfulness of the host was unmatched. Cereal, jam; bread and milk in the fridge. The kind of things you would expect from a host who was a dear friend. Not only that but it is absolutely spotless!
I cannot wait to go back and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. We loved it and thought it was worth every penny and more.

“Home away from home - the perfect accommodation for a couples' getaway.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Situated adjacent to the harbour in picturesque Bosham, a converted garage studio bungalow which was clean, cosy, well equipped and furnished to high standards.

Being a spur-of-the-moment decision we were grateful to have our booking enquiry accepted that night and finalised the next day. Doreen provided helpful instructions on how to get to the harbour car park where she met us at our car, a very close walk to the property. Taking the cost of parking into account, the rate was good value for money.

A quick and helpful explanation was all that was needed - everything had been thought of to ensure a pleasant and relaxing stay. The compact interior was well designed, cosy and furnished to a high standard, creating both a truly pleasurable environment whilst retaining well-functioning kitchen, lounge and bed areas. Underfloor heating throughout ensured our feet were always toasty - an especially nice surprise when stepping into the en-suite shower room. At night it was just able to keep up with the chilly December weather but I have no doubt that an extra heater would be provided if necessary.

Doreen had even provided a fresh loaf of bread, milk, cereal, jam, tea, coffee - all of the fixings to ensure you could enjoy a leisurely breakfast without having to venture out. A decent ceramic hob came in handy when we prepared our fondue and the well equipped kitchenette would cater for most needs.

I must admit that we ended up staying in for the majority of our short time in Bosham - partly the weather, but mostly because it was just a lovely place to stay and enjoy some rare privacy. I'm glad that we decided to dine in, although the local pub (The Anchor Bleu) deserves a visit. Bosham is a delightful little village with its boats, views over the expansive harbour, Saxon church and a large craft shop. Great driving roads all around the area too. West Wittering beach is 25 mins away - a quintessential English sandy beach which drew us to the area in the first place.

Perfect for a getaway for two but probably a bit too small to bring kids - although the sofa looks comfortable enough to sleep on. We hope to return next year for a longer stay.

Liked best: Very clean, good privacy, lovely host, well designed, cosy, everything well thought out and to a high standard.
Liked least: Might be a bit chilly on a really cold day but I'm sure that would be easily rectified with the addition of an electric heater.
