Beautiful location, great house with everything you could need and a warm and friendly welcome.
Pirates Point is a newly furnished Grade II listed holiday cottage situated on the beachfront of Selsey in West Sussex.
The 18th-century cottage can be found down a secluded lane on the end of a row of terraced cottages that were originally built for the village coastguards. Ideal for families and couples looking for a seaside retreat, the cottage boasts unrivalled access to the beautiful beachfront and is only a short walk from the bustling village of Selsey.
There is a small enclosed garden area with patio furniture and a furnished studio where you can enjoy your morning coffee and the spectacular vistas. Inside, the cottage has been cleverly designed to give you maximum space with a large kitchen area, cosy sitting room, two beautifully furnished bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also a WC and shower room outside for washing off the sea and sand after a day spent on the beach.
A lovely base to explore the local area, Pirates Point is also perfect for those looking to sit back and unwind in the cosy sitting room or out on the sun-drenched patio.
We also have another holiday cottage in Wareham – click here for the details.
Perfect for a relaxing, quiet break. So close to the sea, wonderful for my dog who absolutely loved it.
With parking for up to two cars outside, the cottage can be found at the end of a picturesque row of terraced cottages. As you enter the house through the porch area, you are met with a welcoming kitchen that comes equipped with an AGA, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, table and chairs, plus all your standard kitchen appliances. You might even find some locally sourced supplies waiting for you on arrival! In the light-filled living room next door there is a large comfy sofa, a TV with DVD player and stunning sea views.
Pirates Point has two bedrooms and sleeps six. With a large king size room and a double room upstairs, the studio also has a small double sofa bed that can sleep another two small guests.

The Local Area
Selsey is a picturesque seaside village with a large array of shops so there’s no need to stray far from the cottage. The freshest fish and seafood, including dressed crabs and lobsters, can be bought straight from the East Beach huts during the season, or you can wander down in to the village to sample the wares of the fantastic local butcher, baker and greengrocer.
Selsey has three beaches to explore. The East Beach is where you will spot the lifeboat station. The shelved shingle beach, known to the locals as fisherman’s beach, is a great point from which to explore the beautiful Pagham Harbour Nature and Bird Reserve, which is an approx. 40 min walk East along the coastal path from Pirates Point. If you want to build sand castles head to The Bill, a few minutes walk from Pirates Point, or for swimming and fishing there’s the tidal West Beach.
The village also has several pubs, restaurants and takeaways that boast vibrant atmospheres all year around thanks to a sociable local community.
Also in the village is a dive centre, fishing boat charter, cycle hire, swimming pools, a 9 hole gold club at The Selsey Country Club that welcomes the public, and an 18 hole course at Hunston.
Selsey and the Witterings share The Manhood Peninsular, enjoying expansive sandy beaches and sand dunes. West Wittering is where to head for a day on a sandy beach, or from East Head at the Witterings you can explore the inland waterways of Itchenor, Bosham, Delquay, Chichester Harbour and Cobham, taking in the stunning coastline. Those keen to take in the views from the water by sailing will find a variety of sailing clubs to accommodate them.
Pirates Point place completely blows your expectations out of the water – metres from the beach and an uninterrupted view of the seaside and fields, it really lives up to the photos. Would definitely visit again!

There are plenty of activities and attractions, with stunning seaside walks, a plethora of restaurants, retail destinations, Roman and Naval historical sights, delightful market towns and events at Goodwood. We are also quite close to Bunn Leisure where you are able to enjoy a wide variety of live entertainment and facilities which include swimming, go-karting and rides.

Chichester’s central market cross is a great starting point to explore the stunning Roman city. Chichester Cathedral is on West Street and easily spottable from the cross. It often hosts concerts and exhibitions open to the public, and is a lovely spot for a picnic and people watching.
The Chichester Festival Theatre and Minerva put on fabulous productions that you can enjoy throughout the year.
Three miles from Chichester, Goodwood hosts many events that are well worth a visit. Goodwood Racecourse is the home of Glorious Goodwood, an iconic 5 day horse racing festival in mid-summer, along with other racing events dotted throughout the year. Goodwood Motor Circuit hosts the world famous Goodwood Revival Meeting every September where attendees can immerse themselves fully in the period racing experience. Or you can revel in the madness of the Festival of Speed, held every year at Goodwood House.
