Open the unassuming front door to Hollie’s House and be immediately transported to a world where the sun is always shining. Every corner of this beautiful, light-filled home is blessed with quirky, individual touches – all in a stunning palette of retro ice-cream colours. With white floorboards and high ceilings, this holiday property has a wonderful feeling of space and light. Comfort is well provided for with velvet sofas and beautiful curtains, throws and cushions. It is carefully curated throughout, from the hand painted antiques to the modern, colourful prints on the walls. Practicality hasn’t been compromised either. With two sitting rooms, and an open plan kitchen / dining room with patio doors to the garden, the ground floor is a particularly sociable space. But it also includes a downstairs bedroom and shower room that makes it perfect for those who find stairs more difficult.

Upstairs there are three further bedrooms (one with bunk beds that the kids will love), and a further bathroom with roll top bath. Just a short walk from the heart of the beautiful cathedral city of Chichester, a short drive from the South Downs, and only 4 miles from the beautiful sandy beaches of Wittering – Hollie’s House is in every way a magical Sussex escape. This light and spacious property is located just a short walk from the heart of the beautiful cathedral city of Chichester, yet only a short drive from the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park, Goodwood, and the sea at Itchenor and Bosham. With white floorboards and high ceilings throughout, this property has a wonderfully curated mix of décor, featuring antiques and beautiful artwork from the owner’s family, velvet sofas and chaiselongues, and more modern and colourful prints adorning the walls of the bedrooms. It has been very lovingly thought out with fantastic flourishes to make it a very comfortable and chic getaway. With two sitting rooms and an open plan kitchen/dining room with patio doors leading onto the outdoor areas, it is a particularly sociable space. With one bedroom downstairs, it also works particularly well for those who find stairs more difficult plus it is particularly well equipped for children with everything you could think of being provided making for an easy Sussex escape. Hollies House is the perfect property for family or group gatherings.

A home from home and very child friendly. A break enjoyed by three generations. Great location close to Chichester and plenty of things to do in the area. We’d certainly visit again if back in the area.

Thank you for a lovely weekend. The house is spotless and bright and in a wonderful location. 

A marvellous place to stay, can’t recommend it highly enough. Spacious, well equipped and beautifully decorated – a real pleasure to stay here.
Hollies House is idyllic. Never have we stayed in a home with such attention to detail, comfort and high standards in every way. We needn’t have taken anything other than clothes as the owner supplies just about everything you need. Toiletries, beach towels, toys, games, and a splendid personalised hamper when we arrived. The owner and her lovely team should be so proud as they provide the most wonderful holiday experience. The location is perfect, 2 mins walk to the lovely Chichester, bit it feels so quiet you’d never believe you were that close. A wonderful pub with amazing food just up the road and all the beaches, like the lovely Witterings, within easy reach. We were torn between shouting from the rooftops about how amazing this house is and keeping it all to ourselves, so don’t hesitate to book, you will have, like us, the perfect holiday.

Lovely weekend in a beautiful home for a 10 year Chichester reunion. Would love to come back.

This has been an excellent visit – home from home although on a much grander scale! We have enjoyed our stay here – Thank you.
We have had a wonderful week in this lovely house. We have had the best weather we’ve ever had for Goodwood. We would love to come back next year. Thank you
We have had a great time, with this lovely home, a very sweet and attentive Belinda, a great garden and all the toys for the kids to play with. The weather and the BBQ made a complete holiday. Thank you for everything!
