Lovely cottage - comfortable, stylish and well kitted-out. Great location - only 10 minutes drive from Chichester and close to Pagham Harbour nature reserve. We had a nice meal at The Lion.

Lovely base for touring West Sussex. Lois was very friendly and helpful, and the accommodation was perfect for two. The Lamb Inn just across the road served really good pub grub. We enjoyed visiting Bosham and had a brilliant day out at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Overall a great short break.

I would highly recommend this property for a short break. Beautifully clean, stylishly furnished, well equipped and good value for money. A particular attraction is the ease of travel by public transport to Chichester, local pubs within walking distance and a beautiful coastline. Lois the owner was welcoming and helpful.

We enjoyed this spacious chic accommodation – the Dray House is independent of the main house and overlooks a lovely herbaceous garden. The small kitchen and posh shower/toilet were perfect for us. We were not acquainted with the area and were delighted to find miles of Nature Reserve walking off the Pagham harbour. The bus a minute away took us into Chichester (Roman wall, Cathedral and smart shops and eateries) one side of the road or Bognor Regis the other. A couple of excellent meals from the Inn across the road completed our stay!

Had a great stay in this property in Pagham. High quality furnishings and facilities. Lois was so friendly and welcoming and sociable. Beach just close by. Nearby Chichester is a lovely place to visit with excellent shopping and market. Restaurants galore! Private parking in gated gardens.

The Dray house is a beautifully presented property set alongside the owner's own home. It is of a very high standard of cleanliness and with quality furniture and furnishings. Being able to sit outside and have breakfast looking over their garden was such a pleasure. On our holiday, we enjoyed the local area especially walking Pagham harbour with all its different bird life. also visiting Chichester, West Dean gardens and Fishbourne Roman Palace . Lois is a most welcoming, friendly owner who we enjoyed meeting. We would highly recommend The Dray house to any discerning visitor.

Lois was very helpful and efficient during the booking process and was very friendly during the stay. The accommodation is conveniently located a 20 min walk to the beach and harbour(now a nature reserve). If you don't want to drive everywhere there are frequent buses to Chichester and Bognor with stops a 2 minute walk from the Drayhouse. The accommodation was very good with high quality furniture and kitchen equipment, perfect for a long weekend or a week, with lots of places to visit within a 30 min drive. A future stay is in our plans.
