Close also to the sailing village Itchenor Spence Cottage is an excellent base for avid sailors or those who just want to be close to the south coast. Spence Cottage has everything you need to effectively self-cater during your stay. The kitchen comes equipped with cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, washer and dryer and lays open plan via a breakfast bar to the dining and living area. The cottage has been decorated to a very high standard and the modern comfy living area is a peaceful space to unwind after a long day exploring ! Why not open up the tall French doors to the garden area and make use of the table and chairs for a spot of something fizzy. Spence Cottage has two good sized bedrooms. One double and one twin bedroom with a family bathroom set between the two with bath and shower. The cottage comes with two car parking spaces so there is ample room for couples travelling together or a family. Birdham has a vibrant sailing community and Chichester Marina is within walking distance. In addition, the nearby sailing village of Itchenor can be accessed via a beautiful walk and the area is perfect for cyclists. One of the best sandy beaches in the south of England is only a few minutes away in West Wittering, which is also a haven for windsurfers and sun bathers. Birdham itself is a very pretty village with a variety of properties and it is well served by a good village shop. Just to the north of the village is the famous cathedral city of Chichester. Dominated by the cathedral, the city centre's character and heritage has been preserved extremely well and it has a wide range of interesting shops and places to visit. The internationally renowned Festival Theatre attracts actors and visitors from all over the world. The nearby Goodwood Estate has both horse racing and its famous motor sports events, including the Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival. With so much to do, it is no surprise that this is such a popular holiday destination, but equally people often visit for a quiet, relaxing breakMore
