Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, Surrey & Kent Cottages
Ideally located on the fourth floor of this quality development, Waters Edge Apartment enables guests to take advantage of the interesting views to the river, the wharf beyond, which is constantly buzzing with activity, and further still to the magnificent South Downs in the the distance.
The apartment has an intimate feel making it a great retreat at the end of a busy day's sightseeing or activities. The living area has large French doors leading out on to the balcony, flooding the room with plenty of light and giving the impression of space.
Clean and spotless, and with everything you might need for a comfortable stay, this apartment is highly recommended for a short break or longer for a small family or couple seeking a sanctuary close to the sea.
Stairs from a communal ground floor hallway lead up to the apartment on the fourth floor.

Stepping outside the communual front door of the development, you'll discover a riverside walkway leading past several small yachting basins to Shoreham Harbour. Just a five minute walk, and accessed by a pedestrian bridge, is the attractive town of Old Shoreham where pubs, restaurants and good shopping facilities can be found.
Take the other direction from the appartment and you'll end up on Shoreham Beach (mostly shingle with some sand). Rarely crowded even in high summer (due to parking restrictions) this is peaceful spot to while away a few hours or perhaps try something more active such as kite surfing or wind surfing.
Shoreham lies mid-way between the coastal resorts of Worthing and Brighton (the latter is particularly blessed with all the attractions you'd expect from a seaside town) and is an ideal base from which to explore the Sussex coastline and the South Downs, which are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
For guests looking for activities to fill their day, there is excellent walking and hiking on the South Downs Way, which runs from Winchester in the west to Eastbourne on its eastern boundary. Perhaps you might like to take to the skies at Shoreham Airport, which offers pleasure flights, or take a dip at the leisure centre in Lancing, both a short drive away. Golfers will be spoilt for choice as there are a number of good golf courses nearby.
This part of Sussex is home to numerous historic buildings, gardens and museums, which include Bramber Castle, Parham House, Petworth House and the Royal Pavillion in Brighton.
