    What a wonderful place to stay. There are plenty of places for walking our dog. We’ve especially enjoyed East Head and the beaches. Beautiful places to let dogs run and run. The bungalow is extremely well equipped and the excellent Wi-fi signal is a bonus. We were very warm even in February when it was very cold outside. We’ll definitely be back for another visit.

    We had four nights at the Beach Retreat as a winter break. The cottage is very comfortable, warm and quiet and a nice place to return to after a day out. It has an excellent shower which isn't always the case with holiday cottages. My Vodafone mobile worked perfectly in the cottage but my husband, who is with EE, failed to get any signal. There is WiFi which by and large works fine except it did stop daily. This was easily rectified by switching the router off for a minute or so and then switching back on. Many dogs have stayed at the cottage which might be a problem for anyone with allergies.

    Have been twice now and are going again next year. Only one problem was the washing machine didn't work properly we did manage to get it to spin eventually but washing was still full of soap so took it home dirty, i'm sure this will be fixed by next year. Otherwise no problems and had a great time.

    We had a lovely stay in the Beach Retreat which is nestled in East Wittering. The property was clean and comfortable and considering that it is a "dog friendly" property there was no lingering notice of this. It was great to be so close to the beach and East Wittering has lots of nice cafés and restaurants. We enjoyed ourselves and would be happy to stay again.
