BFB's Overview

This coastal chic bolthole is within a pebble's throw of the beach and has been given a smart New England-style makeover that’s as cool and fresh as a Sussex sea breeze! It is fab for families, with the latest mod cons, games room, lovely enclosed garden with its own path to the beach.

The hub of the house is the open plan living dining area which runs through to the large, well equipped kitchen, including an American style fridge freezer. While rustling up some food or chatting at the funky dining table for 10, parents can keep an eye on the children, whether they’re delving into the toy box or watching favourite programmes on the 50”, wall-mounted SMART TV. At one end of the living room, a games room makes a cool hang out for teenagers, with a pool table or table tennis and grown-ups can have their own space too in a sophisticated, separate lounge with sumptuous sofas and another SMART TV.

Stepping outside, the fantastic south-facing walled garden is an oasis for parents to relax and children to safely play. Comfy, contemporary rattan furniture is set out on the patio, with a large gas BBQ and there are sun loungers and giant bean bags on an elevated sun deck. Children’s golf and cricket sets are provided for games on the lawn, as well as a paddling pool to have fun cooling down, not forgetting the sea is just a short toddle away along the garden's (gated) private path!

For the all important good nights’ sleep, Craig House has three spacious bedrooms which are simple and minimalist in style, with Egyptian cotton bedding to snuggle into. Parents can keep baby close in either of the two en-suite double rooms, with space for a travel cot in both (1 cot provided). The third bedroom is designed for versatility, with two single beds that have pull out trunk beds at floor level which are ideal for toddlers. The family room also has French doors to a south facing balcony with a couple of chairs and views to the sea. The family bathroom has stripped wood panelling and a large bath with an overhead shower. There is now a new annexe available which has an additional two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Accommodation Overview

Craig House is a spacious family home for 10-12 guests, with two living rooms, two SMART TV’s, a games room, large modern kitchen and five bedrooms. Two double bedrooms are ensuite and both have space for a travel cot. A family bedroom has two single beds with two pull out trunk beds at floor level. The panelled family bathroom has a large bath and shower. The annexe has two bedrooms; a king size double bedroom and a twin room which can be made up as a double on request. The two rooms share a shower room. The double bedroom has door backing into the garden area, whilst the second room has double doors facing the new decking area.


Outside, there's a lovely enclosed and south-facing garden with its own private pathway to the beach. Guests can also enjoy the decked courtyard area that catches the afternoon and early evening sun and offers a sheltered space to relax in addition to the garden at the back of the house.

Location Information

Just 90 minutes from central London, Craig House is a real find, in a surprisingly undiscovered corner of the West Sussex coast on the private Angmering-On-Sea coastal estate.

The house has a direct path to a scrunchy shingle beach where children can happily splosh pebbles into the waves and watch windsurfers and kite surfers doing their thing.

There is a parade of shops less than 5-minutes walk from the house which includes a deli and convenience store selling small toys, a cafe with children’s menu, a choice of pubs and restaurants that also do take-aways.

The closest small town is Rustington (5-10 minutes drive) which has a selection of local shops, post office, Boots the Chemist, Superdrug, banks and a beauty clinic. The nearest supermarkets are Sainsburys in Rustington and Waitrose in Littlehampton (10 minutes drive), with home deliveries available online for both.

Littlehampton boasts blue flag beaches and is renowned as one of the best places for crabbing on the south coast. Families can also hop on a train along the promenade, play a round of adventure golf, have fun on the rides at the Harbour amusement park or take an exhilarating trip on the Black Hawk speedboat. Don't miss a sunday stroll followed by brunch at the the cool, contemporary but child-friendly East Beach cafe on the sea front, which is hard to miss thanks to its superb architecture.

Close to Littlehampton, at Ford, Flying Fortress is a multi award-winning children’s activity centre with an amazing play frame, bouncy castle, painting, colouring and storytelling sessions, plus a good cafe.

Arundel Castle is straight from the storybooks of knights and princesses or Arundel Lido has a 25m outdoor pool, an adjoining 5m splash pool with easy entry steps and a large, separate children's paddling pool.

Brighton, Worthing and Chichester are all within easy reach of Craig House with plenty more things to see and do for all ages, superb high street and boutique shopping, fabulous places to eat and a hip social scene.

Nearest Medical Services (GP & A&E): Worthing Hospital or Chichester hospital for A&E. Nearest drop in NHS centre is based in Littlehampton that is a 10 minute drive.

  • My family and I spent a wonderful few days at Craig House for my mum's 70th birthday. We were a group of 7 adults (mixed ages) and two children. The location is great - with the beach/seafront a 2 minute walk away down a private path, the station under a mile away (with v quick trains from london) and a few amenity shops/F&C shop/pubs a few minute stroll away. The sea front by the house is perfect for children to paddle when the tide is in (and go crabbing!) and there is a really nice walk to the Bluebird cafe where there's also a nice beach area for the adults to chill and children to play. The house is also a good layout for all ages, with the kitchen/living room set up well for children, with a separate formal living room for 'adults' in the evening. All in all, a great place and one which we hopefully will return to!Review dated 07/07/2016

  • An amazing find with loads of space, well decorated and so close to the sea. We loved our week here, but crucially so did our children who are 7, 5 and just under a year old. We may well rebook for a second visit.Review dated 01/09/2014

  • We had such an amazing, relaxing stay. The location is brilliant; so close to London and yet so very far away! We especially loved the proximity to the wonderful beach. It was hard dragging the children (and the adults) away at the end of a sunny day.Review dated 19/09/2013
