Do I need to clean when I stay?
We will organise our professional cleaning company to thoroughly clean at the end of your stay. This will mean each new visitor arrives to a beautifully clean house.
If you are staying longer than a week, we would advise that a quick hoover will help keep the house looking good. Because of our location, and unmade roads, the house gets dustier than normal. Cleaning can be organised, at your expense, for longer stays.
Are there bed linen and towels provided?
Yes, we provide clean linen on each bed at the beginning of each week. We will also provide a full set of towels for each person staying in the house. If you need to do any washing during your stay there is a washer/dryer for your use. We would ask if guests could bring their own swimming towels.
Is the house suitable for children?
We would recommend that this house is only suitable for children over 10 years old. There are lots of hard surfaces in the house and sharp edges that, from our experience, are not conducive to little people running around.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, we are very happy to have four legged friends stay. They need to be fairly well behaved and must not sit on furniture. Luckily dogs can be off the lead on the beach all year round, though we ask that you are respectful to the neighbours and other beach users. As it is a public beach poo must be collected…….Pagham Beach is a dog haven.
When are the high and low tides?
There are roughly two high tides and two low tides in a 24 hour period. The tides change throughout the year. It is best to swim when the tide is high as a low tide is very shallow for a long way out. Click here to check the local tide table.
What is the Weather like at Pagham?
We do have a micro-climate here and are very lucky to be in what is recorded as the sunniest place in Great Britain. Pagham is in a wide bay and enjoys gorgeous sunny days (sometimes when Chichester is under cloud). As we are right by the sea it is very rare for bad weather to stick around for more than a day. It does get windy and with severe gusts the house is a little noisier. Click here to check out the latest forecast.
What is the latest news on coastal erosion at Pagham Beach?
In the last few years there has been some erosion to the shingle. A planning application is due to be submitted to carry out operations to reset the position of the harbour mouth which should restore the pre-existing shingle nourishment cycle; but until this is in place and the work completed, the local authority is carrying out occasional replenishment of the worst eroded sections of the beach. There is work in progress to resolve this problem. For more detailed information read here: www.savepaghambeach.com
