Holiday: Get the best from Chichester

Chichester is one of the hidden gems of the south coast of England - a relatively little known Cathedral city with a huge amount to offer visitors. Whether you’re coming to gaze at the cathedral, watch horses and cars race at Goodwood or you just want stroll on one of the many beaches and areas of outstanding natural beauty nearby, Chichester is the perfect destination for both weekend breaks and longer stays.

With so many natural and man made assets at hand, it’s no surprise that tourists are starting to get wise to what Chichester has to offer, and they’re starting to visit the city in increasing numbers. This increased demand has pushed up prices of local hotels and B&B’s, but there is a way that you can still enjoy a luxurious stay in Chichester and the surrounding area without paying through the nose.

Like much of West Sussex, Chichester has a wide variety of holiday cottages available for short and long rentals, and if you haven’t experienced a holiday rental before you’ll be amazed at the advantages holidaying this way brings. The first thing you’ll notice is how cheap it is to stay in a holiday cottage compared to a stay in a hotel. While a night’s stay in a decent hotel will set you back a couple of hundred pounds, for that kind of money you can book holiday cottages in Chichester for a whole week. When you consider the extra space, amenities and freedom you also get for that money, you’ll wonder why you ever stayed in hotels in the first place.  

Because there are also far more holiday cottages in Chichester and the surrounding area than there are hotels, you get a much greater degree of flexibility when it comes to choosing where you want to stay, so whether you want to be in the centre of town or out on a hillside you should be able to find a property that perfectly matches what you’re looking for.


The greater amount of choice on offer also provides benefits when it comes to the style of accommodation you’re looking for. You’ll find that it’s just as easy (and cheap) to book time in a simple rural retreat as it is a modern apartment with all the latest modern conveniences.

A great place to go if you’re looking for holiday cottages in Chichester and the Chichester Harbour area is the website of a company called Amberley House Cottages. They’ve got a great selection of cottages of various styles to choose from, and they offer some of the most competitive rates in Sussex.
