“Wonderful and relaxing pet-friendly home directly on the beach”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Moonshine is a well equipped and very relaxing holiday home directly on Pagham's pebbly beach in West Sussex. It's very dog friendly, and is highly recommended.
The well furnished and spacious living area has an excellent sea view and it's very easy to spend a few hours just chilling out here, as we did most nights.
The welcome basket was very much appreciated as was the hands off approach from the owner who just let us get on with enjoying our time.
We stayed there with our dog for a long weekend at the end of October 2015 and loved the place so much we've already booked another stay.

“A lovely quiet location right on the beach”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Moonshine with our family.
The property has a lovely feel and character with the railway carriage forming part of the the building which adds to the quirky feel of the place.
Two double bedrooms and a single suited us well for the stay and the owner couldn't have been more helpful with arrangements for our son.
A very nice and comfortable living area at the centre of the property with doors opening out onto the decking and beach.
Good information and communication from owner for check-in and our stay, excellent directions to property and shows the care and attention paid to the guests
A lovely quiet spot right on the beach, which gives plenty of opportunities to explore the beach and nearby nature reserve
We will definitely be paying a return visit !

“Fun and quirky beach getaway”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Great location on the beach. Charmingly quirky. Great views of the coast and walking along the coast straight from the patio door.
Comfortable place to stay, well equipped and with plenty of character.
Themed décor and well thought out layout. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach and local attractions around Pagham.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Moonshine was a tremendous place to stay. Everything you might have forgotten to pack was already there such as Tea, Coffee, Sugar etc. The beds were extremely comfortable and as for the view it is too lovely to describe especially at night. The owner had canoes and wet suits for use, even buckets and spades for children. The entire carriage had a lovely homely feel and we felt settled straight away. Even thought it rained for the first two days it was no problem as the view from the panoramic windows was excellent. In fact we liked it so much we are already planning to book it for next year.

“lovely place, a fantastic time had by all!!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our family of mum, dad and 2 kids age 14 and 11 stayed at Moonshine in Aug 2015 along with our 2 dogs.
The house is very well equipped and comfortable. The welcome basket containing some delicious cookies, lemonade, cider and toiletries was a lovely touch. The kids made full use of the snorkels, kayaks and windsurf board which was made possible by the addition of a couple of life jackets. The decking outside made it a lovely spot to sit out and watch the sea. A very large amount of books, dvds, board games and a wii aswell as very good tv reception and wifi meant that even during bad weather there would be something to entertani!
The beach outside the house was brilliant, allowing for swimming, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, snorkelling and even on the brightest days it was not busy.
some minor points to note, there is a low beam across the sitting room which meant my 6ft husband had to duck every time he walked through the room so tall people be aware! and in the 2 double rooms the beds are up against the walls on one side with only a small amount of room down the other side.
We booked hoping to have a relaxing time and we were definitely not disappointed. We definitely hope to go back again and again!!
