Close to the beach, this period property is ideal for that family coastal holiday.

This delightful end-of-row period holiday property, formerly a traditional lifeguard’s cottage, stands peacefully in an enviable location overlooking the serene mill pond. Emsworth, just a 2-minute walk, is a historic home town nestled at the top of the western inlet of Chichester Harbour, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It remains a fishing port, although yachts and other pleasure craft now outnumber the traditional fishing boats. This charming town is a haven for nature lovers, sailors, artists and walkers, and Swan Cottage, which was built in the 1890s, overlooks one of two tidal millponds. Historically, Emsworth is connected with oyster fishing, flour milling and boat building. Its charming streets are lined with a variety of traditional architecture with a rich selection of independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Farmers and local producers regularly set up their market stalls near the town square. The focal point is the spectacular harbour view with quayside walks, or longer walks along the Solent Way, and a jetty for boat trips or crabbing in the summer. Within easy reach are Portsmouth with Spinnaker Tower, extensive shopping, historic ships and ferry trips to the Isle of Wight, and Chichester with cathedral, Fontwell and Goodwood races. Seaside 500 yards. Shops, pubs and restaurants 250 yards.

    As a family of 5 with a baby we had an amazing time at Swan Cottage, we would recommend it to anyone as a both relaxing and fun place to stay for a family.

    I booked this cottage because we needed to take our dog to visit family in Emsworth. It wasn't until much later, and in the small print, that I noticed 'small dog'. Ours is neither large nor small, but he is well behaved and is not a great 'barker'. Surely a dog is a dog whatever its size. Anyway, he enjoyed sitting in the cool of the back yard and meeting the visitors to the house next door. The house is very well appointed but we only need a bed, a shower and a kettle.
