Welcome to the Boat House

...and to the delights of a self catering country break in West Sussex.

Thoroughbred horses, fast cars, superb sailing, breathtaking scenery ... they’re all in easy reach of your luxury escape in the beautifully landscaped grounds of Shipton Mead.    

The Boat House is a lavish home-from-home self catering cottage in an idyllic setting on the edge of the pretty harbourside village of Itchenor. Family-owned, it offers all the advantages of professionally managed holiday accommodation plus the priceless extras of personal care and attention to detail.

Beyond the front door you’ll find Chichester Harbour, Itchenor Sailing Club, sand-and-shingle beaches and rolling Sussex countryside. 

A short drive away lie the shops, sights and cathedral of the historic city of Chichester, while nearby Goodwood is the home of classic horse racing and motor sport.  

All irresistible - as long as you can tear yourself away from the up-to-the-minute indulgences indoors. Woodburner, underfloor heating, espresso machine, flat screen TV, wifi, chic furnishings, stylish décor, rural views - whatever the season, the Boathouse has everything to make a short break a memorable experience.
