we had not rented a property before so were unsure what to expect. The cottage came with everything you could think of. Attention to detail with the small things was superb. Was there anything we didn't like, There were 3 of us all in our seventies, we found the very modern sofas and chair uncomfortable otherwise it is tens all the way

Old Lock Cottage is in a stunning location next to the lock which leads over to the Marina. We were a party of 4 and 2 of us were celebrating our birthday! The cottage has good accommodation sleeping 6 people - but as we were 2 couples it would have been better if the 2nd bedroom upstairs had a double bed - the bedroom downstairs with the double bed is quite small. We all felt very comfortable there - it was just a shame that there is no welcome pack - I.E. basic provisions - and took a while to find the information pack - we never did work out how to operate the TV! But our stay was perfect with lots of great pubs and places to eat locally. It was a joy every morning to be able to walk out and look at the water and have swans flying over your head!! I hope to return.

Great house, such comfirtable beds, super bathrooms, very well equiped kitchen. Great books and games. A really lovely house to stay in. Great location near the water, and only 5-10 mins from the beach. We all swam in the evenings after work at Bracklesham. Which was great, had take away wood fired pizza from the van there. It made our working holiday lovely!

Lovely property and fantastic location, private road and parking for three cars. Minutes walk to The Boathouse Cafe and Restaurant in Chichester Marina so took full advantage of this aspect. 6 adults and 3 three great sized bedrooms with either en suite or right next to on the downstairs room. Good sized kitchen with a beast of a cooking range, once you get the hang of it's really good. Everything that you could need for a more than comfortable stay is provided, living room space again great for all of us and worked really well. Only slight downside (sorry ) was the garden or lack of , paved over but could do with a little TLC. Saying all of this we are looking to book again so very happy with the house .

Great value - exclusive location
Our family loved this house. It's in a great exclusive location - just next to Chichester Marina. Great summer accomodation with two large, light and airy bedrooms upstairs. Southern England's best beach (West Wittering) is just on your doorstep too. Best holiday wi-fi we've ever had. Would definitley consider booking this cottege again.

Lovely location
The positives......Property is tucked away down a private road with access to Chichester Marina 10 mins walk. Ideal for 3 adult couples as bedrooms are en suite or one next door. Plenty of living space indoors. The negatives... property had a few maintenance issues which we highlighted to Agent , dealt with promptly. The house and garden could do with a touch of TLC as a little dated , especially showers. Outside space is limited as no back garden .Kitchen was dark as high wall outside of window. Would suggest having a house instruction book as never used a range before , bit daunting. In saying this we have booked for next year so not so bad then.

Beautiful Location
Old Lock Cottage is set in a beautiful, very quiet & secluded location. You can see Birdham Pool Marina from the upstairs velux windows & it is literally only a couple of minutes walk. You will need a car if you are renting at this property, as it is set a long way from a walkable bus route. If you are renting in winter or even with our British weather in summer, if we have heavy downpours of rain, one of the lanes does flood & you won't get through until that has gone down (as this happened to me in February). Old lock could do with a little updating in the showers, much better lighting is needed as the property is very dark due to very high hedges at front & as there is no back garden, there is a very tall wall. All that said, we would recommend Old Lock Cottage & we would rent again in the future. It is very spacious, we loved the location & the quite & secluded location. Henry Adams who we rented through were lovely to liaise with & very helpful & responded to any query right away.
