Sheridan is a unique holiday home right on the beach front in East Wittering. Steeped in history and with bucket loads of charm, this traditional family holiday home is overflowing with character. The cottage is built around two old railway carriages and very few of these traditional holiday homes still exist. From the late 19th Century through to the 1940s, former railway carriages were ingeniously recycled as holiday homes. Sheridan has been in the same family for the whole time.

Comprising of:

  • Bedroom 1: Double room
  • Bedroom 2: Double room
  • Bedroom 3: Twin room
The cottage has two double bedrooms and one twin making it a cosy space for up to six guests. Each bedroom still has the old railway carriage windows and the beach front double even has the original carriage door complete with "no smoking" sign. The galley kitchen is well equipped and the cosy little sitting room has a small electric fire, comfortable seating, a TV with freeview and views of the sea. Beyond the sitting room is a small garden room extension built onto the railway carriages. It has a dining table and additional small seating area. Its the perfect spot to while away the day gazing out to sea. Sheridan enjoys a lovely lawned beach front garden with outdoor seating and dining furniture. The beach is literally on the doorstep and its a wonderful space for children and dogs to play in.

The cottage has one small shower room off the kitchen and a separate WC. There is space to the rear of the property for two cars to park.

** Please note that Sheridan does not have a washing machine or tumble dryer. Guests can use the laundrette, Seabreeze in the village on Oakfield Road if required. **

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 Sherkin
What a lovely big house. We loved our stay at Sherkin. Lovely position, very central to everything which made everything so simple. Beautiful wittering Beaches 100m. Pet friendly which was a bonus. We are going to miss our daily dog walks so most definitely going to book again. Amanda and Angela were brilliant looking after us. Thank you.
Guest at Beachcomber
This is the second time we have stayed in Beachcomber. It is a very specious and well equipped house and the location is excellent. The response to any queries or help is swift. It’s everything you need for a great family holiday.
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 Pebbles West Wittering
We stayed at Pebbles in West Wittering with our 18-month-old and it might be the best staycation we’ve ever done. We will 100% be returning. We’ve never stayed anywhere this well equipped - it has everything you need and definitely feels like a home from home. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated, super clean and the kitchen has anything you could need from a dishwasher to cling film to coffee machine. Our son was entertained the whole time with the toys provided inside and outside, which made our stay that bit easier for us and more special for him. The location is brilliant, with an easy flat walk to the beach and close to the little shops. We can’t believe we’ve never actually visited West Wittering before - the beach is amazing! Now we have somewhere we love to stay, we’ll certainly be back here!
