Take a lovely walk across the fields following the harbour to Itchenor and The Ship Inn which has an extensive menu, and during the colder months 2 cosy open fires, quiz nights and mulled wine. From mid May until the end of September daily, and April to October weekends and bank holidays, Andy the ferryman takes people, bikes and dogs over to Bosham on the ferry. It costs £2.50 each way for adults, £1 for children and 50p for bikes, dogs go free. The beautiful sandy beaches of West Wittering are about a 10 minute drive or a 30 minute cycle ride away along the Salterns Way. The Salterns Way is a cycle route that stretches from the centre of Chichester to the sand dunes at East Head. We are very lucky that this cycle route passes right through the village which makes family cycle days easy and so much fun. Goodwood and all it has to offer is a 20 minute drive away at the foot of the Southdowns. About the property, Cornerstones is a 5 bedroom home with 2 large double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and 3 smaller double bedrooms, a bathroom and a 3rd toilet on the ground floor. The light, bright open plan kitchen dining room has a full sized fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave and AEG oven and hob as well as a tumble dryer and washing machine. The dining area has a large farmhouse style kitchen table which can seat 10 people, there are also 2 high chairs available on request. The kitchen overlooks the garden which has a Weber BBQ and outdoor furniture and is perfect for relaxing in on hot summer days. There is a chiminea for those chilllier evenings and we provide bankets for cuddling up under maybe with a hot chocolate and some toasted marshmallows. The house is gas centrally heated with a new boiler and a central thermostat. The lounge has a wood burner and we provide logs for guests during the winter. If you have wet clothes, life jackets etc, there is a large airing cupboard with a hanging rail perfect for drying. There is plenty of hot water. The largest of our bedrooms has a kingsize bed, 2 bedrooms have double beds and TVs, one of the bedrooms has a daybed with trundle which will be made up as two singles on request and bedroom 5 has 2 singles. All of the rooms have hanging space and hangers. Both bathrooms have over the bath showers. We are keen on making sure your stay is as comfortable and stress free as possible. For that reason we provide children's cutlery and plates, stairgates and 2 travel cots. The two first floor bedrooms are large and able to accomodate the travel cots or trundle beds if you require them for extra guests. Extra guests cost £25 per person per night. There is a beautiful log cabin in the garden with comfy seating, flat screen TV, xbox 360, fridge and popcorn maker plus a toilet and wash hand basin. This is a great space to get away from the crowd and for teenagers to have their own space.More
