“Great to be right on the beach”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This holiday cottage is all about the location, the accommodation is quirky and although the living accommodation is lovely and spacious the bedrooms and other facilities are small. We had a lovely stay, the weather was much better than forecast and you could sit and look at that view for hours come rain or shine. We had a couple of trips out to Chichester and Portsmouth and the Nature Reserve, Moonshine was a lovely relaxing base. It was great to be right on the beach, both our dog and 2 year old appreciated being able to walk out onto the beach...... On our last morning we were all out there at 7am in our PJs, not sure what the neighbours thought!

Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had an absolutely amazing time in this lovely bungalow on the beach...
House itself is very comfy and very well equipped for any season .... we were lucky to have a fantastic weather but even thou there is plenty to do to entertain urself in the house too. books, board games , TV, dvds etc...
We havent met the owners but they seem to be very lovely and helpful people ....we had no problems with communication with them neither before or after we left their property.

“Moonshine is magical from the moment you arrive.”

person found this review helpful

Moonshine is in a fabulous location on Pagham beach. The beach cottages are a quirky and individual bunch of buildings from hipster grand designers through to railway carrriage cottages owned by generations of the same family. The atmosphere is peaceful, relaxed and friendly. Dogs and their owners scuttle or stroll past depending on the time of day, the beach is almost a bay with gentle winds even when easterly. The cottage is a series of railway cottages and a real home from home loved by its owners, who provide their guests with everything apart from food, which can be bought from the local coop for hasty provisions or a great coop in Selsey which also has the best butchers we have ever been too! For a treat The Crab and Lobster is not too far and looks over the marshes in another gorgeous spot and of course Chichester for people who cannot live without MandS, a cathedral and an art gallery. St Martin's cafe is great in Chichester. But actually the best thing is walking down the beach, up the beach, looking at the beach, sitting on the beach, drinking coffee in the morning from the vantage of moonshine and a glass of wine as the sun goes down and seeing the moonshine after midnight. We stayed 4 nights but it felt like two weeks and it took so little time to relax. A really really great find.

“Quirky property in a great location - fab sea views”
Reviewed February 16, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a lovely stay in Moonshine. The views to sea from the wall to wall windows were wonderful - morning, afternoon and at night - the moonshine on the sea was fab. The property is quirky - mainly compact except the main lounge / dining space which is lovely and spacious - all well described in the details. And it was lovely and warm although it was pretty cold out. And the owner was very pleasant and helpful.
