BFB's Overview

Hollies House may seem like a regular family home from the outside, but step inside and every room is bristling with boutique style and a masterclass in contemporary cool. A lovely private lawn garden at the back is fab for families to spread outdoors and little ones have their own summer house play den, with a magnificent 5ft dolls house, dressing up clothes, toys and games.

The owners clearly have an eye for interior design, choosing fresh white décor to complement vibrant splashes of colour, from a bright orange Smeg here, to bold floral prints there. They’ve also got vintage chic down to a tee, cleverly upcycling and updating antique features and furniture, as well as finding quirky, colourful collectables to complete the look.

Two sitting rooms mean adults and children can spend time together and have their own space, and both are luxurious in totally different ways. One is utterly decadent, with a purple velvet Chaise Longue and giant pink velvet sofa which couldn’t be more sumptuous for mum to sink into with a glass of Prosecco. The other pretty lounge is a flooded with light through a big bay window and kids can snuggle amongst loads of cushions on the sofa to watch films and favourite TV series on Netflix.

The kitchen is another beautifully bright and modern space, with plenty of oak work surfaces and a breakfast bar to play bake-off with the kids, plus the dining area is just around the corner. A double range oven will delight budding chefs and there’s a Nespresso and juicers to kick start the day, plus the orange Smeg fridge freezer just looks so cool.

A ground floor bedroom comes in handy for grandparents, while there is space for a cot in the two King-size bedrooms and kids will be quite happy clambering into the chunky bunk beds. The family bathroom is gleaming white, with Victorian style fittings, a walk in rain shower and a roll top bath plus the house has a separate shower room/wc on the ground floor.

Hollies House has an enclosed lawn garden where children can safely play, while parents chill out on the patio and linger over mealtimes al fresco. There may not be fairies at the bottom of the garden but little ones will certainly disappear down here to the pretty summer house tucked under the trees, with a huge dolls mansion, other toys and a wicker sofa to curl up with a book.

Accommodation overview

Hollies House is a contempoary family home for up to 6 adults and 2 children, plus two babies, with one travel cot and one wooden cot available. The house has two sitting rooms, both of which have luxurious sofas for up to 8 people, one of which has a Freeview TV with Netflix while the other opens onto the patio and garden. The kitchen/dining area also opens onto the patio and has an L-shaped, open plan layout, with a table that seats 8 (plus high chairs), a breakfast bar, double range oven and gas hob, microwave, Nespresso, retro gadgets, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and all the essential utensils. One double bedroom and a shower room/wc is on the ground floor. The remaining 3 bedrooms on the first floor comprise two with king size beds and one with bunk beds which have child guards. The gleaming white family bathroom is very Victorian, with a roll top bath, walk-in rain shower, large hand-basin and antique style WC. At the rear of the house is a good sized, lawn garden and a pretty summer house that’s been specially designed as a children’s play house, with a big dolls house, toys, games and books to flick through on a wicker sofa.

Location Information

In the heart of Chichester, Hollies House has a brilliantly central location, on a quiet residential street with off road parking. It’s also just 15 minutes from the historic Goodwood estate, racecourse and motor circuit, with its prestigious calendar of famous events from Glorious Goodwood to the Festival of Speed.

Even with little ones it’s easy to enjoy the cultural highlights, great shopping, café culture and smart restaurants of this cathedral city or pop down to Chichester’s pretty harbour villages for a pub lunch, watching the sea-birds and boats bobbing in the quays. Bosham is definitely one of the prettiest villages in the Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with an arcade of arts and craft as well as cafes and gastro pubs, but beware the tides when parking by the water! For bucket and spade days on the beach, the expanse of Blue Flag sands at West Wittering is only 4 miles from the house, backed by dunes and with a beach café for recharging batteries after playing up an appetite.

Chichester has a swimming pool within walking distance of Hollies House and, just outside the city, Chichester Golf Club is one of the most family friendly you could find, with its Jungle Paradise Adventure Golf, crazy Foot Golf and Java Café, as well as an 18-hole championship course and driving range. The South Downs National Park is virtually on the doorstep for lovely coastal walks and how about wrapping up the little ones for a starry night stroll in this ‘Dark Skies’ area. By day, families can also wonder at the stars in the comfort of the South Downs Planetarium.

Half an hour from Hollies House is the hip and happening seaside town of Littlehampton, with superb sandy beaches and the multi award winning East Beach Café, acclaimed as much for its architecture as its fab food, so best to book ahead. Families can also have fun in the town’s Harbour Park, with toddler rides, giant slide and trampolines as well as adventure golf and fairground rides.

In the opposite direction, the maritime city of Portsmouth is home to amazing ships through the ages at the historic dockyard, from the Mary Rose to modern battleships, or families can explore the wonders of the deep at the Blue Reef Aquarium. Near Winchester, animal lovers will be in their element at Marwell Zoo (45 mins), with 125 species of exotic and endangered animals, from comical meerkats and penguins, to pygmy hippos, giraffes and big cats, plus 3 adventure playgrounds and trains around the park for tired little legs.

Nearest medical services: St Richards hospital, Chichester, 5 mins.

We have enjoyed the garden when we had a sunny spell (but that was limited given the season - I assume you would spend a lot more time there during the warmer months) - As keen cooks, we were impressed by how well the kitchen was furnished. We can't think of a kitchen utensil that was not provided, and all were very clean and in a good state. Overall, we were sad to leave at the end of our week. Children and parents would have easily stayed for a second week, given how restful and relaxing our stay was, and given how much there is to visit locally or in the region.
