The Angmering on Sea Beach House is quite possibly the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. Situated on the beach a few metres from the sea. The breath-taking white house wouldn’t be out of place in America on the Malibu beach front.
A mere 30 minutes from Brighton lies East Preston, a quaint British village with the most beautiful unspoilt beach.
The Angmering on Sea Beach House is situated just outside East Preston village, right on the beach. On arrival the sheer size of the house is quite overwhelming and very impressive. Seven bedrooms with almost as many bathrooms, with a large proportion of the ground floor used as an open plan kitchen / dining and living space. The house definitely has the WOW factor.
The ground floor features a sitting area with a real fire and sofas so comfortable, an after-dinner nap is inevitable. A further seating area faces a giant television, and there is a lovely snug room complete with a TV player and DVD collection. Moving towards the back of the open plan area is a pool table, and the biggest dining table I have ever seen in real life. We loved the little touches. For example, the dining table was laid with decorative features and chocolate for Easter. Plus, an ice bucket complete with a bottle of Champagne.
We then move into my dream kitchen. A crispy white space, huge, beautiful, and so well equipped, it really is the perfect space for any foodie.
The owners of The Angmering on Sea Beach House really have thought of everything. The tableware is all delightful and mostly from high end homeware store Amara. Everything you need to cook, serve, and entertain is in the kitchen. Cooking whilst looking at the most perfect beach view, really was a delight. The large dining table with beach and sea views makes for the perfect space for a dinner with friends.
I am told the owner is an art collector. This makes perfect sense as the décor, art and ornaments are all incredible and suit this impressive home. From giant vases reminiscent of the Ming dynasty to a ginormous wooden elephant sculpture that takes pride of place right by the entrance to the house.
Every room has its own specific style.
There is a grown up wooden and leather vibe on the ground floor. It is reminiscent of a Mad Men boardroom. Or, the upstairs master has a clean white and silver style, allowing the stunning sea views to shine. There really isn’t anything in life better than waking up to the sound of the sea lapping on the stones. You can enjoy your morning coffee on the master bedrooms’ terrace with uninterrupted sea views. The bathrooms are equally impressive in design and practicality. The quadruple bunk room was a huge hit with the children, as were the toys and puzzles.
The Angmering on Sea Beach House is a huge space perfect for multiple families, with areas for everyone to enjoy on both floors. The desks are a great touch if you need to do a little work whilst the rest of the group enjoy everything the house and beach have to offer. Plus, it is the ultimate house to play hide and seek in, no matter what age you are, it is a guaranteed hour of fun, and yes Summer you are the undisputed Hide and Seek champion.
The outside of the house is as perfect as the inside.
The house lies on the beach a few metres from the sea, and has a wrap round garden, and terrace area. There are various seating areas, and even a walled garden with a large table, perfect for alfresco summer suppers. The highlight of the garden was a large 8-person hot tub, right next to the sea. The tidal beach is also sandy at certain times, so it is a fantastic place for the children to play.
The Angmering on Sea Beach House has the perfect mix of luxury, comfort and style. I am yet to stay in a place more perfect for a group of people who want to enjoy the British seaside, eat, drink and be merry together.
