We’ve had some wonderful days in your beautiful house. We really appreciated all the arrival goodies and luxurious touches, thank you! We loved the central position and also had a great day at West Wittering as well as exploring Chichester Marina and a great walk to Dell Quay. Great brunch at the Boat House Café at the Marina
Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home and for going above and beyond in welcoming touches and quality provisions. We have greatly appreciated your kindness. We will definitely stay during our future family visits – a very special place indeed.

Thought of everything
Lovely city, lovely house, lovely location. The attention to detail in this house is great – Donna has thought of everything, and all good quality too! Great bed, great shower, what more could you want!
Thank you for a wonderful stay. To quote my six year old son “the lady who owns this house clearly wanted us to have a great time!”
Sarah, Tim, and Aidan
Thank you for a lovely long weekend, you have thought of everything and everything is such good quality too! The kids loved it, West Wittering beach was a highlight. All the snacks were wonderful too – an extra bonus!

Just a few words to say thank you for providing us with such a lovely bolthole. We have all enjoyed our visit to Chichester and hope one day to return!

Thank you! This weekend was just the break we needed – the children loved the bunk beds and the eldest enjoyed seeing the Lego exhibit at the Novium museum, we even managed a blustery visit to Littlehampton! We hope to be back again soon!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house with us and for taking such care to make sure we had everything we needed. The treats you left were much appreciated and baby Charlie loved the books you gave him – so thoughtful and kind. We enjoyed reading the old advertising posters – most amusing! We loved being so close to the city centre of Chichester. Thanks again!
Ann, Paul, Tom, Rosie, and Charlie
This is such a charming and lovely place. You have really thought of everything to make it comfortable and perfect in every way. The extra treats are such a caring gesture. The beds re so comfortable that it is difficult to get up! I loved the posters and inspirational quotes – such a fun idea! The Christmas tree was another caring touch. We will certainly be back with the family!
We only stayed for one night to celebrate my mother in laws 80th birthday. Beautifully clean and comfortable with many thoughtful touches. I wouldn’t change anything! We lived near Chichester many years ago and the location was perfect for returning, thank you!

Our only regret is not having more time to stay in this wonderful home. We would love to spend more time in Chichester and learn about the soul of this beautiful city. The Old Grocery is a masterpiece of design, construction, and convenience. We will return, God willing!

A perfect base
This is our first visit to Chichester and what lovely accommodation to explore from! We are a family of 5 plus a dog, and the accommodation was a perfect base. The treats that you provided were a wonderful base and very much welcomed by all. There are certainly places that we haven’t managed to explore so I am sure that we will be back again. Thank you for making our trip ever more special!
We love it
It’s wonderful to be back at the Old Grocery again. We love it here – the convenience of town and having the beach so nearby too has been amazing! Thanks for all the wonderful treats and the house was as lovely as ever with every detail well thought out. We loved Purchases and the Pallant Gallery – the café was brilliant too, especially for Sunday roast! We also attended Tom’s Midnight Garden ballet in beautiful Bishops Palace Gardens which you mustn’t miss! I’ve loved running around the city walls every morning. We had a magical day at West Wittering beach which is unmissable! Do not miss fish and chips from Ye Olde Chip Shoppe in Middleton-on-Sea – we look forward to returning in October half term!
A truly exceptional experience at the old grocery. The location is perfect right in the centre. So much care and attention to detail makes the cottage a delight to stay in. The bathrobes linens and toiletries are 5 star hotel standard. Super comfy beds and powerful showers - a joy! The treats provided, so thoughtful and welcoming, sum up the whole experience, a level of quality derived from genuine care and focus on the guest experience. 6 stars ⭐️!

Lovely city, lovely house, lovely location. The attention to detail in the house is great. Donna has thought of everything – and all good quality. Great bed, great shower, what more could you want!
The Old Grocery was a perfect choice for my family’s short visit to Chichester. Donna was very attentive and kind and everything went very smooth. All the little details and complimentary food made us feel at home. Right at the centre of the town, it was very convenient to access things one may need. We definitely recommend this for family trip!
R Family (South Korea)
The house was incredibly comfortable, impeccably clean and situated right in the heart of Chichester town centre - within walking distance of all the major sights and shops. Our son enjoyed the comfy bunk beds and the thoughtful reading material in that bedroom.
Great house, located right in the centre of town. The house was really clean with lots of thoughtful touches - cakes, milk, soaps etc. We would love to stay again!
Very central location without any noise of the city, perfect. lovely house and the hosts think of lots of little details that make the stay that little more special.
A lovely stay in a superbly appointed house. Everything had been thought of - highly recommended.
Fabulous well equipped house , beautifully decorated with quality furnishings and extra luxurious touches like John Lewis blankets. Great location just yards from the town and shops but still quiet for a good night’s sleep. Donna was a lovely thoughtful host answering all my questions promptly, leaving some yummy festive treats for us and some books for baby Charlie. We would definitely return for another visit!
We had a wonderful stay in this really comfortable, immaculately clean and stylish house in a fab location. The host’s attention to detail was fantastic - with lovely toiletries, a well equipped kitchen, a great information folder, foodie treats on arrival and very clear arrival details. We will return if staying in Chichester again!
Perfect location on a quiet street yet in the town centre. Property has been recently renovated to high standard and had everything we needed for a family including good quality high chairs and cot for our baby.
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home! So well equipped, location ideal for exploring the city and yet quiet and restful. Will definitely tell out friends & family but will be careful that they do not get in the way of us coming back - we will!
We only stayed for one night to celebrate my mother – in – law’s birthday. Beautifully clean and comfortable with many thoughtful touches. I wouldn’t change anything! We lived near Chichester many years ago and the location was perfect for revisiting. Thank you
