The space
Shake off the stresses of city life, dip your toes in the sand and get ready to chill out and relax at The Salt Shack, Goodwood racecourse is just 20 minutes away, a quick dip in the sea then head off to Goodwood Revival, or Festival of Speed!

A stunning eco-style three bedroom house, only 3 minutes' stroll to the beach. Set within its own private grounds with ample off road parking, this gated property is suitable for children and pet-friendly.

Designed to maximise outdoor living, the large terrace features a comfortable lounger and hammock to catch the sun from dawn to dusk. The unique BBQ/fire pit area includes a custom-built timber seating area with sand and play zone for long relaxing summer evenings. We offer a complimentary bag of logs for the fire pit (subsequent bags @ £10.00 per bag, just let us know & we’ll drop some to you) The adjacent ancient olive tree, surrounded by a tiled high top bar, is a key feature for guests to enjoy.

After a fun day at the beach, lay down your paddle board on The Salt Shack's fresh green lawn and jump under the outdoor surfboard rainwater shower. The detached outdoor shed provides extra storage for bikes and other sporting items.

The property features underfloor heating and is powered by eco-friendly solar panels and an air-sourced heat pump which ensures a comfortable environment throughout all seasons. A complimentary bag of logs is provided for the internal log burner for cosy nights enjoying a home cooked meal prepared in the fully equipped kitchen or watching a movie on Netflix.

The Salt Shack has been constructed to ensure accessibility, with zero-step entrances and wider doorways to support guests using wheelchairs and/or mobility devices in all areas.

Our ethos at The Salt Shack is to protect the environment and our oceans. We kindly ask all guests to correctly dispose of sanitary products and wet wipes in the bins provided during their stay. An alert system has been set to warn of toilet blockages.

A state of the art automatic mist, fire and smoke detection system has also been fitted throughout the property for your peace of mind. The Salt Shack is strictly non-smoking.

Where you’ll be

Bracklesham Bay, England, United Kingdom

With a relaxed, seaside vibe and plenty of local amenities, coffee shops and bars, you're off to a great start at The Salt Shack!

The much loved Drifters & Drift-In cafes are just a 10-15 minute westerly walk away. Guests can continue along the beach to explore West Wittering's blue flag beaches and sand dunes. Billys on The Beach restaurant is a short walk in an easterly direction and is a local hot spot for a relaxing breakfast, cold beer or great fish and chips.

On quieter days, head east towards the nature reserve at Medmerry where you may be lucky enough to see seals hauled up on the beach and listen out for the many skylarks flying overhead.

Goodwood Racecourse and Motor Circuit is a 20 minute journey away by car or taxi for guests attending Goodwood Revival, Festival of Speed, horse racing and much more. The free Goodwood Bus is available from the train station in the nearby town of Chichester. Keep an eye out for the iconic Spitfires and Hurricanes flying out of Goodwood - and if you're lucky you could experience The Red Arrows passing overhead at The Salt Shack.

Steve and Karen have a second Air BnB property called The Loft in East Wittering. Located three minutes' walk from the beach, this stunning self-contained apartment sleeps two adults or a small family. Please feel free to make an enquiry about both properties should you require extra space for your holiday.

Hi, I’m Karen, I trained as a chef, then pastry chef (I still love to bake & cook) & worked within the hospitality sector for in excess of 20 years, went on to be involved in retail & have always loved being the host at a variety of events including family gatherings, wedding receptions, garden parties & more. It was a natural progression for my partner Steve & I to become Airbnb hosts as we love to ensure that everyone has the best time possible, wherever & whatever we’re involved with. Steve & his building partner Mike, (who met in Sri Lanka whilst helping to rebuild along the south coast after the devastating tsunami of 2004) have recently designed & built The Salt Shack, which opened as an Airbnb in July 2021. Our continuing aim is to provide the best experience possible for our guests & in the process maximising our care of our environment.
