We loved this house, it caters for everybody literally. We are an extended family to include children and grandchildren. First of all, a very big thank you to the owners, customer service was excellent, we've never had such good communication for any holiday from start through to post finish. They seemed to have insight into our needs that we hadn't even considered. Our son has cerebral palsy and the downstairs bedroom with access to en-suite, discrete portable ramps, wide open doors and spaces made life a lot easier for him and us. My husband loves to cook on holiday and was mightily impressed with the very well-equipped kitchen with three ovens. The grandchildren also loved the wide open spaces inside and out. We've never been to a holiday home with so many children's books. The fab breakfast/cocktail bar was a great place to relax when the youngsters were in bed. This really is a large luxurious house with a very well thought out design. The layout meant it was always easy to keep an eye on the mature and the young and the particular created a very well naturally lit house with the amazing French doors that opened out into the back garden. Lots of people have commented on her views about the location being to die for and it really is it's incredibly beautiful in so many ways. The area is stuffed with culture and you will find all manner of leisure activities within reach of this cool pad. We've never seen so many pubs and cafes in a genuine village, you must head to the Quay for Flintstones ice cream and we can also recommend the Bluebell pub fish and chips - in fact here we bumped into a lady who had been a victim of the floods a few years ago and she couldn't say enough about the owners who gave up their home for free until she was re-housed, this sums out hosts up I think! We loved all the small things as well such as mattresses, linen, carpets, huge TV, versatile lighting, deep deep bath , how many plates and glasses do you need, all shapes and sizes. The property was spotless, as described and excellently presented. Lastly, Daisy the dog had to be dragged into the car rather than back down to the sea - only a few steps away. Can definitely recommend for all!
Dear Gillian, thank you so much for your wonderful feedback - it really is helpful to us and potential guests to see how wonderful the area is - I'm glad our hard work on the house gives so much pleasure - that is our aim always. Your and your lovely extended family are welcome back anytime! Thank you for leaving the house so well. Thank you, Martine

Attractions and places to visit; Travel and visitor information.The town of Emsworth lies on the border of Hampshire and Sussex. It is situated on Chichester harbour and was, in its early history, an important port for the area. Up to the nineteenth century, it was famous for its oyster fishing fleet. The older part of the town around the square and the harbour has some lovely old houses and still retains the atmosphere of the past. Warblington (1km) is believed to have been founded by the Saxons in the fifth or sixth century but all that now remains of the village is the parish church and the castle ruins. The tower of the church has two Saxon archways, the nave is the thirteenth century and the wooden porch, fourteenth century. All that remains of Warblington Castle is a single turret and part of the gateway. This can only be viewed from a distance as it is now unsafe. It was a fortified manor house built between 1513 and 1526 and was dismantled by the parliamentary forces during the Civil War.
