A pretty terraced cottage situated in this listed terrace adjoining Snowhill Creek at West Wittering. The property sleeps up to 6 (4 adults and 2 children in the bunk bedroom). It is within only a few meters of the “Crabbing Pond” and Snowhill Creek from where a short stroll leads you around the edge of the harbour to the well known ‘Blue Flag’ beach of West Wittering and the National Trust owned, East Head. The village of West Wittering has some useful shops, a pub, restaurant and cafe while there are more extensive facilities and a wide variety of shops in the nearby village of East Wittering.

4 Coastguard Cottages offers it's own pretty garden for Al Fresco eating, and parking directly outside the property.

Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband and I rented the cottage to take our 2 children and grandparents as the cottage says it sleeps 6 -unfortunately it is just not big enough. There is one bathroom with no usable shower which meant 6 people having to queue up for a bath at the end of the day on the beach. There was shower attachment but no shower curtain or even a bath mat. Lots of basic things missing such as a freezer (even a small one for ice would have been nice), a washing machine but nowhere to hang clothes, one wardrobe for six people. The stairs are unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues and the front door was not easy to open- There were lots of minor things wrong but the estate agent we rented from did not seem very interested in dealing with any of them.

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to place a review. We are sorry that you felt that the property was not large enough for your use, we do state on our website that there is only one bathroom and that this has a hand held shower attachment rather than a mains operated separate shower. Regarding your feedback of the agents,...

This cottage was so much better than we expected. My friend and I both stayed with our sons for a week. The location was excellent. It was so close to the beach and the crabbing pool. We walked to Itchenor along the coast. A fabulous long walk to wear out the boys. We had a pub lunch at The Ship which was reasonable & delicious before we walked back.
The rooms were clean and we had the linen service. Great kitchen and bathroom. The living room was relaxing. There is a front garden and rear patio area. Happily the cottage had WiFi which was useful for all of us!
The pictures do not do it justice, book it, you will not be disappointed. So much to do, we will be back!

Management response:

Thank you very much for your kind review, it is always good to have feedback from guests particularly when they have has such a positive experience as yourselves. Hopefully, we will see you again soon and you will have another great holiday. Baileys, managing agent.

About the neighbourhood
National Trust land at “East Head” offers a fabulous open air coastal area full of sand dunes and beach area - wrap up warm and head out on a wintery walk, brave the shallow waters and take a swim or bring your binoculars and spend the afternoon wildlife watching. This area offers perhaps the most picturesque “blue Flag” beach in West Sussex.
Enjoy fabulous walks along the beaches of Bracklesham and Wittering, take in lovely views and enjoy beach side restaurants and cafes.
The famous Chichester Harbour area is a great place to watch spectacular yachts come and go into the Solent, and to enjoy the bustle of a busy working harbour, and is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a series of tidal creeks and lovely walks.
