“Absolutely Wonderful!”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

From the minute we pulled on to the drive, The Boat House did not disappoint! Adorable from the outside and even more so once you walk in. A lovely warm welcome from James made us feel so comfortable and relaxed (not forgetting the lovely welcome pack inside!), even when we couldn't figure out why the cooker kept switching itself off he was only a phone call away (turns out it turns off the fan when it reaches the correct temperature so it doesn't burn your food!). So cosy and snug inside you actually don't want to leave! The bed is so comfortable and the shower is amazing, like nothing we have ever seen before! The pond outside is also lovely, waking up with ducks swimming around to the friendly fish that swim to the top to greet you as you walk by. We will definitely be coming back in the future and haven't stopped raving about our little holiday since we came back!

We spent 2 nights at the boat house retreat, and found everything to be fantastic, from the greeting to the location and all the high quality fitting. It really was a wonderful stay, even in dreary Febuary. All you could need was available. For a quiet few days away you cant go wrong with a stay here.

“A little gem”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The Boat House Retreat is perfect in every way.
Everything is quality & cleverly designed.
The view from the large patio doors are breathtaking even when the weather was poor.
Location excellent for walks etc.
We will be going there again later in the year.

“Marvellous”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We only stayed a few days but really enjoyed our visit and were made very welcome, and the little extras were appreciated, the plums were delicious. James was very helpful and informative about the area where to eat etc. Loved the decking and the garden area. Expect to be present at fish feeding time next time we visit please!!

“Tranquil English garden vacation home!”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Beautiful boathouse with lovely, stylish New England interior. All very clean and fresh. Views from each window were lovely and even on a rainy day we felt in the midst of nature without having to be outside. On a sunny evening it was nice to take a little stroll in the garden before dinner. Extremely good bed to sleep in, handy little kitchen, which served us well on our stay. Great terrace space overlooking to the garden and the pond. All very private and quiet. Especially nice waking up in the mornings to the view from the bed to the garden and the fields beyond. Welcoming basket was a nice touch and the fresh garden roses in a vase. We felt immediately at home! Good private parking space just behind the boathouse, so no need to leave the car on the street or far away. Excellent location to make day visits by car to Highclere Castel, Oxford, Arundel, Goodwood races, nature walk to Seven Sisters and shopping in Chichester. Big supermarkets nearby in few minutes drive away. Pub in a walking distance. All in all a lovely place for a couple to stay! I hope too be back some day!
