    Perfect in every way, our 3rd visit in 3 years and all being well hope to stop there again next year. We found The swift to be very quiet, clean comfortable bungalow that our dogs settled into with in a hour of arriving as did all of us, we all had a very relaxing 2 weeks holiday . we found East Wittering to be a very dog Friendly place, be it around the town or on the beach which is 4 min's or so walk to from the front door. East Wittering is a great location, with very good shops and local restaurants, pubs. I would highly recommend it for a holiday and we will be returning again.

    The Swift was in a extremely good location. We are not dog people and sometimes there was the smell of dog along with the dog hair in the home. We both like hot water in the shower and bath but understand the Health and Safety regulations in a rented property, however if we had instructions to increase the water temperature the overall rating and comfort and equipment rating would be higher.

    Cottage is in a fantastic location with everything you need on your doorstep. The only downside is that the main bathroom only had a bath and no shower. The only shower is very small in the en suit bedroom. Not very practical if all occupants are trying to get ready at the same time as not everyone (especially the elderly) can get in and out of a bath. A nice fully enclosed garden for the dogs. The village and brilliant pub very dog friendly.

    The Swift was a nice bungalow, in an ideal location, close to shops,cafes and a short walk to the beach. The games room was popular with the children. We did think the bungalow could do with being updated especially the kitchen and en-suite, and as has been said in previous reviews more attention to cleaning is needed.

    Fantastic location and the pool table was a hit with the children but the kitchen and bathrooms could do with updating to bring this little cottage up to its full potential. A few renovations would ensure the property was worthy of the peak prices paid in Summer.

    Overall great bungalow for a weeks holiday. Good location, clean comfortable and well equipped. Would be even better if there was WiFi. Poor mobile reception so we were without any communication for the week which made it difficult to make arrangements for meeting family and friends. Not always convenient to go out find wifi in local cafes and restaurants. I understand the owner is considering rectifying this problem.

    Good self contained cottage in quiet area yet within easy reach of town facilities. Lovely shower, plenty of sockets, nice garden (dog friendly) and games room. Kitchen on the small side.

    The bungalow was presented in a clean & comfortable condition in an absolutely wonderful location . Just a short walk to the shops , a range of small local outlets plus 2 mid sized supermarkets & close access to cafes , restaurants, pubs & take aways , everything you need day to day is right there . It is also well situated to go further afield with Chichester close by . A few minutes flat walk finds the beach which is largely dog friendly & offers miles of sand at low tides . Being addicted to my iPad, I would have benefited from wifi as the open networks offered very little coverage .

    This has been our 2nd stay at the swift and the reason we came back was the location. My reason for being at the wittering is so my dogs can go to the beach however our week was the worst with gale force winds, rain and cold. We were unlucky. The bungalow itself is adequate for what you need. It was nice to see new sofas since our last stay but the whole place needs tlc. As I mentioned 2 years ago the kitchen needs replacing or at least new door fronts they are dark, old and really grimy as is the mini shower room. Garden also needs attention. Its overgrown by the little steps to get onto the very small grass area and I fell up them on the first day getting my foot caught in weeds. This hasn't changed in 2 years. Altogether location you can't beat but I don't think I will go back again. It needs attention to detail and a proper good clean.

    Fantastic location and a comfortable bungalow however the only grip I had with it was there was no shower in the main bathroom. This would have made it perfect. East and west Wuthering very dog friendly - perfect for us.

    The Swift is conveniently located for local shops, take aways, cafe's and restaurants. The beach is just a short walk away. The property is ideal for families, having a large safe patio area and an indoor games area. We felt the property needed more attention to detail regarding cleanliness. We felt that the property was in need of updating and TLC. However the property represented reasonable value.
