08/04/18Holiday Cottages for the Perfect Mini-Break
The weather will soon be getting warmer but that doesn’t mean we want to spend less snuggle time with our loved ones. with more partnerships being pulled apart by the stresses and long hours of work than ever before, it’s now or never when it comes to booking some you time. A few days of respite at Quay Quarters and the fresh sea air of Chichester Harbour are sure to work wonders for the welbeing of you and your partner.
Quay Quarters, with its cosy holiday cottages that offer a welcome secluded haven, are just the job for a hassle-free break. We have two fully contained luxury holiday cottages that sleep two. Whether you choose Quay Cottage – which is between our sensual rose garden and herb garden with a private south-facing patio – or Stable Cottage – with the choice of two pretty patio areas for beautiful alfresco drinks and dining at sunset or sunrise – you’ll benefit from the peace and rural relaxation of Apuldram Manor Farm. As there are dog friendly holiday cottages, you can even bring your four-legged friend along too.
Cosy up with movies, books and games.
Cultural couples might like to book to see a performance at Chichester Festival Theatre, an art-house flick at Chichester Cinema at New Park or a rom-com at Cineworld Chichester. Perhaps you’d both like to cuddle up with a good book by the fire or read sprawled out in a deck chair in the sunshine – just pop into Chichester if you need to top up on literature, which offers independent store Kim’s Book Shop as well as high street favourite Waterstones. Our luxury self catering holiday cottages also each come equipped with a dining table and patio table where you can challenge each other to a game of scrabble or cards before or after a candle-lit supper.
Romantic walks at sunrise and sunset.
Quay Quarters’ holiday cottages are less than 15 minutes away by foot from Dell Quay, which has a lovely bay for dreamy walks when the tide is out. A restorative drink or meal at the Crown and Anchor also offers breath-taking views over the Fishbourne channel and beyond to the South downs. Visit Emsworth and you could take a turn around the mill pond and enjoy fish and chips while watching elegant swans and sailing boats negotiate the tide. There are also award-winning beaches just a stone’s throw from Apuldram Manor Farm – including the unspoilt sandy beaches and skylines of West Wittering and the shifting sand dunes and wildlife sanctuary of East Head – where a barefoot wander, hand-in-hand with the one you love, will lift the spirits.
Meals for two in the Chichester Harbour area.
Whether you fancy a picnic, a BBQ or a fireside roast, our one bedroom holiday cottages have the catering facilities required to make staying in for a bite a breeze. But if you fancy leaving kitchen duties at home and taking a break from it all then our luxury bed and breakfast accommodation might be more up your street. There are also plenty f places nearby which offer the excellent food and ambiance that make a meal for two, from Thyme & Chillies a few minutes’ walk down Birdham Road to Purchases Bar and Restaurant a short drive away in central Chichester.
Make either our dog-friendly holiday cottages or luxury bed and breakfast at Quay Quarters you base for the perfect mini break by the sea. You’re sure to return home refreshed and with those romantic flames rekindled. Contact us for more information about Quay Cottage, Stable Cottage and the farmhouse B&B today.
