This stylish, luxurious and exceptionally spacious (2,500sq foot) 4-bedroom house (sleeps 9+2 babies) is perhaps best summed up by the phrase "Everything it says on the tin and more". As well as space, comfort and luxury, it's greatest asset is its fabulous setting just a few set metres from the private resident's beach in the Sussex coastal community of East Preston, the UK's answer to The Hamptons, just 90-minutes from central London.

The stylish interior has a treat round every corner with sea views from the two doubles and twin bedroom, a glamorous free-standing bath in the master-suite bathroom, a new top notch kitchen complete with sociable dining area, a spacious lounge with contemporary furnishings, WiFi, full Sky package, a formal dining room with elegant French doors opening on to the garden, or the large garden itself with its mature shrubs, wide lawn, dining area and a selection of kid-friendly gear in the form of swings, trikes, ride-ons and even a space hopper or two!

Such spacious and luxurious surroundings can make the temptation to stay put strong, but with the sand and shingle beach a few steps away, mini guests will be keen to head off on shell collecting or fossil-finding expeditions, whilst grownups can enjoy picnics on the beach or take a 20-minute seaside stroll to Littlehampton and its fantastic East Beach Cafe. The strikingly contemporary cafe, designed by Heatherwick Architects, looks like a giant gleaming mussel nestling on the beach and boasts an acclaimed menu of local seafood, great wines and even kids specials.

Share Tips & Advice Show Location Map

The house located on the West Sussex coast approx. 90-minutes from Central London. It is just 20 yards from a private sand a shingle beach used only by local residents making it tranquil even in high summer. The local towns of Arundel, Brighton, Littlehampton, Worthing, Rustington and Angmering are great for shopping, sightseeing, sailing, fishing and long country or sea walks. The nearest is Littlehampton, just 20 minutes walk along the coast it is home to both 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.

Nearest Medical Services: Worthing Hospital is 7.3 miles away.
