Family Holiday Homes in Sussex


Sussex offers a wealth of activities to keep your children busy. For little ones just a sandy beach and a bucket and spade may be more than enough, particularly if it comes with the promise of ice-cream! For young animal lovers there are farm parks (Fishers Farm in West Sussex is particularly perfect for under 10’s), Denryth Alpacas near Chichester where you can make a whole heard of new fluffy friends, or marine life to explore at the Sea Life Centre in Brighton. Arundel Castle offers something for all ages – but in the summer months the traditional jousting will appeal to those still enraptured by tales of the knights of old.

With many of our family friendly properties, the attractions for children are much closer to home. Children will love staying in the Wood and Penfold Cabins at Swallowtail Hill Farm – where the 40 acre setting means they can be free to roam free and explore the outdoors, as well as meeting the sheep, donkeys and goats. Young imaginations cannot help but be captured by sleeping in an old Railway carriage – the Bolthole on Pagham Beach – where crabbing is right on the doorstep and wetsuits and life-jackets have been provided for seaside adventures.
