“Great location and really nice, comfy place to go away for a relaxing break.”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Sherkin is in a great spot and is really nicely fitted out. Everything was easy and we slotted straight into the house for a relaxing weekend away with old friends and our children. Hot chocolate from the cafe down the road and excellent chips from the fish and chip shop up the road went down well too!

“Great, spacious holiday home!”

We were so thrilled with Sherkin - a lovely big house which catered well for our group of 3 small families. It's well equipped with plenty of space, and the décor is really nicely done - homely - coastal - tasteful - really feels like you're on holiday! The back garden is large and completely enclosed so very safe for little ones. Even in October the kids made good use of it - I'm sure it would be wonderful in the Summer with the bi-fold doors open and to eat outside.

It's a few minutes walk to East Wittering Beach and right off the high street so everything you need is on the doorstep.

The house really worked for us and I would definitely stay again if in the area - in fact have already recommended it to a friend for her family holiday.

We visited the Butterfly, Bird and Beasts attraction nearby which was surprisingly good - we were there for 5 hours, great value for money, and the younger kids enjoyed all the outdoor play, animals and the themed Halloween treasure hunt.

We also visited the beach several times (both East and West Wittering) as well as Barn Yard garden centre where they had some lovely half term activities on for the kids.

“Great location, great house, great time”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

East Wittering is a great and thriving village with everything we wanted. Good butcher, green grocer, restaurants (excellent Indian (Moonlight) just over the road and all within about 300 yards, literally. Going the other way is the beach, that's a bit further, about 500 yards.
The house is lovely, we were glad of the parking spaces which we used, and the lovely sunny back garden.
There is loads of room, we positively rattled around inside. I suppose the acid test is would we book up again next year? And the answer to that is year, definitely. Any drawbacks? If you want to be miles from anywhere or right on the beach then this is not for you. Beach-wise its great for us. Close enough to always be able to pop down and yet far enough up Shore Road (which is a quiet cul-de-sac leading from the village to the beach) to avoid strong winds etc.

Liked best: Everything really
Liked least: That the Indian Restaurant was at least 300 yards away. Pity it wasn't closer!

“A place we will be returning to again and again”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a great find! This is truly a hidden gem- huge and spacious, beautifully decorated, cosy with fireplaces and huge sofas, a stone's throw from the beach and furnished with all the amenities one could need. We had an amazing, comfortable, fun and VERY relaxing stay at Shirken. The Witterings are just a brilliant place to holiday- beaches for the kids, supping, windsurfing and kiting, cute cafes and pubs. So for us to find a really spacious and luxurious house smack bang in the middle of all this to holiday in en famille was just an extra bonus. We'll be booking every year.
