Seaside Holiday Homes in Sussex


Our range of holiday homes by the sea in Sussex are ideal whether you are looking for a converted railway carriage that all but dips its toes in the water of the Pagham Harbour nature reserve, a stunningly designed mix of ancient and modern right in the heart of Rye, or a beach-chic firepit with sea views at Pevensey Bay – our properties have all been personally selected, so we can promise that the most perfect beach escape awaits.

Whatever the season, the Sussex coast will not disappoint. The summer weather means long days soaking up the sun, al fresco dining, surfing, paddle boarding and kite surfing (if that’s your kind of thing) and strolls along the promenade in our lovely traditional seaside towns. But Sussex by the sea is wonderful in winter too, when the crowds disappear and blustery coastal walks take over from seaside strolling. It’s the perfect time of year to explore the independent shops, galleries and cafes that thrive here – or just to hunker down in a traditional, cosy pub and enjoy getting warm by the fire.
