Getting away in May

Getting away in May

Posted: 14th April 2021

With summer fast approaching and the roadmap out of lockdown looking positive, we’re excited to welcome friends and families to stay with us here in the Witterings!

We’re keeping our fingers tightly crossed that by 17th May, restrictions will have eased enough so that two households or up to six from different households will be allowed to stay together – yippee. Did someone say spring staycation!?

Bookings have been coming in thick and fast, but we’re excited to share with you a handful of our properties that still have availability in May – perfect for a couples getaway, a weekend with the kids, a cheeky mid-week escape or from 17th May onwards, even a trip with a few friends to enjoy some well-deserved R&R together.

If you see something that catches your eye, we would love to hear from you.

Couples Seafront Luxury

Stargazer – East Wittering – 1 bedroom

Although Stargazer is a large family property, with multiple bedrooms and generous living areas, we have just taken on a unique opportunity for one couple to rent the property under sole occupancy this summer.  Guests will have access to the beautiful top floor bedroom and all the other living areas, including a study if you need to “work from home” plus the balcony and beachside garden. Stargazer is a stunning beachfront property offering comfort and luxury in equal measures. Located in East Wittering, this home enjoys direct beach access and the most spectacular sea views!

Whether you’re seeking a weekend away or a full-blown staycation, Stargazer is a rare opportunity not to be missed.

What Our Clients Say
Guest at Number Twenty Four
This was a very special year for myself and my husband and part of our celebrations was bringing together three generations for a family holiday – so we were looking for special accommodation and Number 24 did not disappoint. Thank you Amanda for your clear and helpful communication – we hope to holiday with Windbreaks and Wellies in the future
Guest at Manderley
Lovely house, lovely location. Planning to return next year. Thank you Amanda from Wellies and Windbreaks for being so accessible and helpful
Nicola McCarthy, Owner
Wellies & Windbreaks has been managing our two rental properties for a couple of years now and we have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Amanda. Lettings have been good and whenever there is an issue at either house, Amanda is quick to remedy it in a professional and efficient manner
Gillian Morrison, Property Owner
Amanda is such a pleasure to deal with.  She is super efficient and nothing is too much bother.  Whether its taking bookings, dealing with cleaners or other management aspects, Amanda is incredibly quick to get onto things and never lets anything drop. Always on. And always with a smile!
Guest at Number Six
We had a wonderful stay here. Four adults and one baby. The house was excellent, and everything that you needed was provided. It is in a great location within walking distance of the sea at Bosham. A very good pub, cafe and craft centre can be found there. At the end of the road is a hotel with an excellent restaurant. The agent Amanda went above and beyond. Anything you needed was sorted out immediately. I would not hesitate to recommend this property
