Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for your email. We had a really fantastic weekend at The Rocks - the house was amazing, the photos do not even begin to do it justice and of course we were spoilt with gorgeous sunny weather. We very much enjoyed celebrating my Dad's 81st and my 40th birthday there. We live in Kingston Upon Thames and so it was very apt that the house was called 'Kingston Rocks'! Thank you for a really great family weekend.

My sister and Dad did the check in with Diana and had no issues - they enjoyed being shown all the rooms in turn. We also found the local shop very handy and well stocked. And the Bluebird Cafe, even though it was extremely busy, was great service, value and food.

From the moment you enter this superb property you know you and your family/guests will be in for a treat. The view of the beach and sea are, of course, sublime. The luxury touches in the house will make even the most picky holiday maker satisfied. Comfort is the word. Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy, and we cant wait to return again and again.

You won't be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

This our second stay at the Rocks Beach House. The house is beautifully designed and has great views overlooking the beach. We were staying at the house for my sisters 60th birthday as an extended family and Sarah the owner kindly left us a beautiful cake to welcome us.

The house has everything you could need for a great stay, including a little gym if you don't fancy a walk on the beach!

We would definitely recommend staying at the Rocks. You can even get catering as Sarah has lots of contacts. We chose The Lamb restaurant in Angmering for Sunday lunch on Sarah's recommendation. The food was delicious.

Sarah makes your stay hassle fee and we hope to stay in her other beach house next year.

Stylish house in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a stylish and beautifully presented house with stunning views over the beach. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The owner's communication was excellent. The local town is within an easy walk along the green which runs between the end of the garden and the beach where there is everything you could need including a lovely pub and a very good Chinese. There's also a rather fabulous bakery from which the owner had bought us a huge cake as a welcome gift which was a lovely touch. There are a group of ten of us staying for a two night pre-Christmas break and all of us had a wonderful time.

The Rocks would make any celebration special

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Rocks to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary along with our family - nine guests in total. The owner Sarah ensured that all the arrangements went smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble, even a very late request that allowed our stay to come to an even more leisurely and enjoyable We chose Kate's Kitchen who prepared a delicious meal for us on the Saturday evening. She also recommended a number of eating places. The Bluebird Café is good for lunch. It is a 20 minute stroll along the beach path. We finished our week end with a meal at The Lamb in Angmerring village where the food and service was excellent. The Rocks itself is a beautiful house in an idyllic setting. The décor is high end and gives guests a sense of occasion. There was plenty of space for everyone with lovely bedrooms and en suite bathrooms. As "guests of honour" we had the first floor suite. The views from the spacious veranda onto the beach and across the shore are wonderful and very relaxing. The Rocks is a first class house that would add to any celebration. We all had a very enjoyable and memorable time.

Perfect House. Perfect Location. Perfect Weekend.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I made contact with the owner of this property I knew we were going to have an amazing weekend. Sarah could not have been more helpful and her recommendations for places to visit around the area were fabulous.

The House.....well what can I say.....AMAZING! It is high end in quality and and absolute dream to stay in. The downside is we didn't stay for long enough. The out look of the house is perfect and the hot tub is just heavenly.

There were 12 people in our group and we had ample room.

Lovely weekend. x
