  • Sleeps: 9

A Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Geological Conservation Review site, Bracklesham Bay looks mesmerisingly out to the English Channel, with views all the way to the Isle of Wight on a clear day.

You’ll discover Shell Seekers perfectly positioned right on the scenic, windswept pebble beach; a uniquely captivating family-friendly retreat that sleeps up to nine guests.

Elegantly constructed around a 1920s railway carriage, there’s a charming vintage feel to the natural light-flooded haven, which boasts glorious sea views from just about every room.

You’ll also have direct access to the beach, right from the stunning garden… although with a 25ft heated indoor swimming pool and a dedicated children’s playroom at ‘home’, you may not need it!

As if all that wasn’t enough, you’ll get to choose from two living spaces, one on each floor, and each equipped with wall-mounted flatscreen TVs. The upstairs lounge features direct access to the balcony, while downstairs awaits a huge dining table to gather around, laughing and enjoying delicious feasts whipped up in the gleaming kitchen.

(Packed with high-spec appliances, there may even be arguments about who gets to do the cooking!)

You’ll find three of the four bedrooms on the ground floor, including a children’s bunk room, and the wow-factor kingsize master, which comes complete with its own en-suite bathroom and dressing room!

What the guests of Shell Seekers say

“We had such an amazing stay at Shell Seekers – it’s such a beautiful house, in the perfect location. Stepping out of the back gate and strolling down the beach was wonderful! The house is really well equipped, it has all the extra bits you need. To top it all off the pool was fantastic! Wish we could be back sat on the balcony watching the sunset over the sea!”

“Shh, don’t tell too many people how amazing this house is: we had a wild, winter storm lashing at the windows whilst we were warm and cosy & loving the indoor pool. Fabulous. We’ll come again.”

“We had a fantastic stay at Shell Seakers to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. The house is breathtaking and the views are unbelievable. My girls aged 2 and 5 were delighted with all of the toys and the play house. The absolute icing on the cake was the pool, which we had hours of fun in.”
