“Lovely house and garden close to local beach.”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely house with spacious and nice rooms and open plan living area. Kids loved playing in the paddling pool and with slide in beautiful garden.
House is only a few minutes walk from local beach, but needed car for kids to get to the main West Wittering sandy beach. (Local beach is only sandy at low tide.)

Thanks you very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review, there are tide times in the house and also a tide clock, we find it helpful to plan our days around the tides so as to make the most of the local beach. I hope this is of help for future guests. Bob and Georgie

“A lovely family Christmas setting”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We had a great Christmas week at Thorton. The house was a great size and the extension and decor was of a high standard. The Christmas tree made us feel at home straight away. The bedrooms are a good size and the beds were extremely comfortable. We were very warm and cozy even on the windiest days. The close proximity to the beach made it easy to go for a quick winter stroll, and the shops were walking distance too. It was definitely a home away from home.

“Fabulous luxury home in superb location with nearby restaurants.”
Reviewed September 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We received excellent service by owners, who thoughtfully included a welcome bottle of bubbles!! Booking was extremely easy.

We enjoyed that the combined living, dining and kitchen area of the house was exceptionally spacious and bright, with a lovelyt log burner and doors leading out to garden. Therefore, if we were not dining out, it was brilliant dining in!! All bedrooms were of a generous size and had very comfortable beds.

There is plenty of local ammenities, including banks, supermarkets, fishmonger, butcher, baker, greengrocers, restaurants and cafes, all within a few minutes walk. There is also ample take-away/home delivery restaurants. We loved the seafood in particular!!! The house is also only a short walk to the beach.

We enjoyed the relaxation of "Thornton" and the house was immaculate, spacious and very comfortable. Best overall for location, as there is no need to drive to the restaurants, cafes etc., as all are within a few minutes walk. The standard of cuisine available locally was excellent too!

The booking process is pretty straight forward and you get some good instructions for arriving at the house. The house itself is superb. Finished to a really high spec, very well thought out and arranged. A nice welcome bottle of bubbles and tea/coffee etc. Garden is a good size and furnished well with a great BBQ.

House has a good book about the local area and amenities, which are really close in East Wittering, about 5 minutes walk. Easy 5 minute drive to an amazing beach at West Wittering. Chichester is just 20 minutes drive up the road and is beautiful. Got a great park and open grass area for kids.

We gave the owners some feedback as the property was newly on the market which they gratefully received. They're really nice people, very reasonable and helpful.

I was there with my wife and 2 girls (2 and 4), my brother, my mum and her partner. We had a fantastic stay. Wished we could have stayed another week. Can imagine it would be an amazing winter place too with the wood burner.

Booked a weekend with friends and kids. House was amazing, very spacious and great for three young kids. Well equipped and decorated beautifully. Was nice to be able to relax with friends and the kids. Great location too, enjoyed the 3 minute stroll to the beach Saturday morning for a bacon sandwiches, and spent a very sunny Sunday on the sandy beaches of West Wittering. Would highly recommend the house and location.
