Just 90 minutes from London the house offers a quick and easy seaside getaway.
East Preston village centre is within 2-minutes walk and has several pubs, shops, cafes and takeaways.
An hour's walk away, mostly along the sea front, is the award-winning East Beach Cafe at Little Hampton which is fantastic for weekend brunch, long sunny lunches or family-friendly early suppers.
The local towns of Arundel, Brighton, Littlehampton, Worthing, Rustington and Angmering are great for shopping, sightseeing, sailing, fishing and long country or sea walks. Littlehampton, is well worth a visit as it is home to the highly acclaimed, yet family-friendly, East Beach Cafe and, a little further on, the more old-fashion British seaside delights including a small farground with indoor soft play and bouncy castles on the sandy beach.
Travelling in the opposite direction, along the coast is Brighton (approx. 30-40mins by car), which has a great selection of bistros and handily pedestrianised 'Laines' shopping area, plus a pier fairground and lovely boardwalk with cafes on the seafront itself. BFB recommends Pinxto People,a sophisticated tapas bar and deli with chic yet family-friendly vibe and excellent menu including specials for niños. If you can't stop, get it to takeaway and enjoy it back at the house.
There are tonnes of other options nearby for days out including Drusilla’s Park and Zoo (about 30mins by car) with its animal attractions, two special playzones for under sixes, an indoor paint’n’make section and Thomas the Tank Engine ride complete with real life Sir Toppham Hat (Fat Controller to less PC generations! ). There's Arundel with its brilliant antique shops and racing at Goodwood, where car enthusiasts can drool over the museum and those seeking pampering can head to the spa.
