Guest from Tonbridge, April 2022
Jane was really welcoming and very helpful - an excellent host and a very good cook - the breakfast was delicious.
I slept like a log - very comfy bed and pillows and the room was very clean.
Guest from Guernsey, May 2022
A very warm welcome, ideal location (with parking) and have to mention the very attractive garden .
Would certainly recommend to others.

Guest from Truro, April 2022
Jane makes you feel welcome the moment you arrive and her attention to detail is outstanding. The rooms was lovely, spotless and the bed super comfortable. We will be back.
Guest from GB, April 2022
Very warm and friendly host, who provided local information for us and answered all our various questions about local walks and. eating places. The garden looked lovely but sadly too cold to enjoy it when we visited! Very comfortable bed and being able to order a glass of wine before heading out for the evening was a nice touch - and very reasonably priced.
Guest from Painswick, April 2022
It was an absolute pleasure to stay overnight, fulfilled all our needs.
Definitely a great location, so much to do in the area , there are many excellent local restaurants and local eateries . We especially liked the self contained element of our room .
Guest from Exminster, April 2022
We received a very warm welcome from Jane upon arrival; who showed us to our room, the garden room, which was beautifully appointed. The decking and garden outside was lovely. Would be most enjoyable on a warm sunny day. The breakfast room was delightful as were the options for breakfast. I am a coeliac and Jane was most obliging cooking my toast separate etc., Have already recommended to some friends and will definitely return if we visit that way again.
Guest from Witham, April 2022
This was our second stay at Bosham Boathouse - the previous occasion was under different management. We arrived late which was not a problem for the host. We were in the area for a party and needed somewhere local to stay. We booked the Sail Loft which is in two levels and has a very comfortable bed. The room was spotless with good quality cotton sheets. The bathroom is a short flight of stairs to the ground floor level. My only niggle is that the bathroom is small and only had a shower. The towels were nice a fluffy. The host, Jane, was extremely accommodating and hospitable. There is a nice garden area to eat breakfast outside in good weather.
Guest from London, March 2022
Our stay was very good as Jane had thought of everything! The friendliness, quality and attention to detail was excellent.
Guest from Redhill, March 2022
Every review I have read gives this B&B 10/10. It's easy to see why. Every aspect of our stay was excellent. Jane is an impeccable host, cooks fantastic breakfast and is helpful in all matters. The room was clean, comfortably furnished and included everything you would expect. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Guest from Loughborough , March 2022
We got home this afternoon after a great couple of days thanks.
Today we visited Kingly Vale and absolutely loved it – we climbed to the top and saw the brilliant view, but we also thought the trees were fantastic!
Thanks for your excellent recommendations and two great breakfasts. We had a tremendous time and will come back again soon!"

Our room was spotlessly clean & the bed was a joy to climb into. Each b&b has it's own entrance from the car park.
We opted for a cooked breakfast for the 2 mornings we were there which was delicious & nicely presented.
Top marks all round"

We would love to come back again when it’s a little warmer to further enjoy the area."

The room was very nice, clean, warm, with a really comfortable bed and quiet, plus private, being adjacent to the main house.
We enjoyed breakfast in bed as Jane brought our tray to us, we also had a good cooked breakfast in the house one morning. Jane is so welcoming and friendly that we felt completely relaxed. Thank you Jane."
Guest from Stowmarket, January 2022

"Beautiful accommodation. Super clean. Super quality beds, white laundered bed linen.
Very warm welcome.
Guest from Stow on the Wold, November 2021
"Jane was an outstanding host, she was friendly, helpful and enjoyable company. It was our first time going to a Bed and Breakfast, and as a young couple before booking we were skeptical whether the experience of a B and B rather than a hotel would be for us. However, the premise was lovely and modern, everything we could possibly need was provided, and there were so many extra little touches that made us feel comfortable. Everything was incredibly clean and fresh, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious and again, the extra little touches made our stay really special. We also loved having our own private entrance to our room with our own patio area, giving us privacy whilst still making us feel like the host was just around the corner if there was anything we needed. Would 100% recommend to any other travelers in the area, and we hope to return soon!"

Thank you for making our stay so perfect"
Guest from Swineshead, October 2021
"We found the Bosham Boathouse to be clean, very comfortable and well appointed. Of particular note, however, and what makes this establishment exceptional, is Jane, the proprietress, who we found to be very friendly, informative and accomadating , and a very careful hostess who provides lots of extra well-chosen touches and a very nice complimentary continental breakfast, if you do not chose to take her excellent cooked breakfast. Beware the cozy en-suite bathroom, however!
Ideally located for access to the south-east coastal regions and the Downs, and in particular the Goodwood racing circuit and racecourse."

Guest from Dorking, August 2021
"This was our second visit to the Bosham Boathouse (the first being August 2020) and everything was just as lovely as the first time.
We stayed in the Sail Loft which suited us fine as it gave us plenty of space to spread out, with the downstairs area for the shower room and tea/coffee making, including a mini fridge, and upstairs for relaxation and a good sized desk provided if you do need to bring your laptop with you (as my husband did). We especially loved the mini wardrobe and shelves (so much so that we are going to order one for ourselves!).
We booked the adjacent Garden Room for my elderly mum and next time will book the Sail Loft and The Apuldram rooms as they interconnect.
Everything was done to a very high standard, which we appreciated, and Jane is a charming host. The beautiful garden is the icing on the cake."

Guest from Faversham, August 2021
"We were met by Jane on arrival and shown to the Sail Loft which was our room for our two night stay. Very pleasant room with comfortable bed and your own tea/coffee making facilities.

Guest from Fareham, August 2021

Fortunately, the weather was nice enough for us to enjoy our wonderful breakfast there. Jane and Hamish made us feel very welcome, they were very attentive in making our stay most enjoyable, the perfect hosts.
The location was perfect for us as we wanted to explore the area on our bikes. Both Jane & Hamish helped us with planning our routes and offering recommendations. We had a great time cycling around such a beautiful area, admiring a lot of fantastic properties, as well as the scenery!
There is an abundance of really good restaurants and pubs in the area, sadly we couldn’t try them all!
We could not fault The Bosham Boathouse and would highly recommend it to family and friends. We certainly hope to return."
Guest from Stevenage, July 2021

Guest from Rayleigh, June 2021
"Jane is a warm and welcoming host. We went for a short break in Bosham with my daughter and son-in-law to celebrate her 40th and were delighted to have the linked accommodation in the little annex. The younger ones had the loft bedroom and we had the ground floor, both with own access and en-suite. The gardens are charming for and evening drink and the breakfast were fresh and delicious and nothing was too much trouble for our host. The decor is bright and simple, the beds super-comfortable and there are lots of extra touches like the eco-friendly shower toiletries and fresh flowers in the rooms. Excellent Covid precautions. Spotlessly clean. Lovely white cotton sheets.
There is parking on site. Our only challenge was finding the entrance on the main road, and missed on first pass. Look out for the square Blue B&B sign."
Guest from Redhill, June 2021
"Jane was very welcoming.
My room 'The Sail Loft' was immaculate and spacious - cool - with quality décor and furnishings throughout.
My bed was to die for. Best night's sleep in ages - perhaps aided by the ability to purchase wine - mine was ice chilled Pinot Grigio specially selected for The Boathouse - nice touch!
The complimentary Continental Tray Breakfast was for me just perfect.
I will be returning at my earliest opportunity."
Guest from Monmouthshire, June 2021
"All facilities of high quality and spotlessly clean.
Landlady extremely helpful and provider of excellent breakfast!
We would have no hesitation in returning if in the area again."
"First time down in this neck of the woods and we looked around (via the web) for a B&B that looked good, was clearly covid secure and aware, plus reasonably priced. The Bosham Boathouse went beyond our expectations in every way. Jane was kindness itself in her patience in advising us of local restaurants and in her interest for what we were planning to do in the two days we were there. The rooms are stunning, private and very clean, with great views and an outside seating area just for us. There are lovely gardens with comfortable seating areas. Rachel quickly gained control and understanding of the coffee machine provided in our room - with fresh milk and water (no plastic) kept beautifully cool in a fridge provided, unobtrusively, in our accommodation. Jane was never intrusive but provided a very warm welcome and delightful experience. Breakfast could be eaten inside or outside and was a lovely morning treat - and the full English breakfast kept us going practically all day without feeling over fed! This was a very special two days away for us, with lots of exciting plans. Staying at the Bosham Boathouse added to the brilliance of our brief, but delightful, break."

The rooms were small but beautifully done with everything thought of. The bed, pillows, duvet all were very comfortable.

Guest from Christchurch, October 2020
"Absolutely stunning b&b. Clean, very comfortable and lovely little touches like complimentary coffee and continental breakfast. The hosts couldn’t have been more friendly. Would 100% stay again!"
Jonny, October 2020
"Jane is very friendly and welcoming, and gave me tips on places to see and options for eating out. Her Covid precautions can not be faulted and I felt very safe both in my room and in the breakfast room, where her Full English is definately recommended. In these Covid times it is an added bonus that The Bosham Boathouse's bedrooms and the breakfast room are all accessed independantly by external doors from the colourful and well maintained garden. In better weather breakfast can also be enjoyed outdoors. A wonderful stay, The Bosham Boathouse is most definately recommended for a lovely relaxing break."
Guest fromTwyford, October 2020
"We had a wonderful 3-night stay at the Bosham Boathouse. We stayed in the Sail Loft and the Chidham room both of which were lovely and spotless! Jane brought a continental breakfast to us each morning which was delicious. Jane and Hamish are following COVID secure safety guidelines and we felt very safe staying at the B&B. We would definitely recommend a stay at their B&B.
Visit West Wittering beach which is beautiful but make sure you pay for your parking slot before you arrive there.
The Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth and specifically the Mary Rose museum is not to be missed."
Guest from London, October 2020

Guest from Wembdon, Bridgwater, October 2020
"Booked two nights at short notice in the Sail Loft room. Spotlessly clean and suitably prepared with COVID-19 in mind. Met by Jane on arrival who ensured we had everything we needed and we opted for the continental breakfast brought to the room on a tray. Would not hesitate to rebook on a future occasion."
Guest from Epsom Downs, October 2020
"The Apuldram annexe is a lovely room with an enormous bed. The en-suite bathroom is small but beautifully appointed and everything is spotless and carefully chosen. Thank you Jane and Hamish for being so welcoming and making us feel safe in these troubling times. "
Guest from GB, October 2020
"This is a gorgeous place to stay! So relaxing and friendly and at the same time professional. The rooms are spotless, really well equipped and the bed is very comfortable. Jane is generous and thoughtful and wants her guests to have a lovely time. The breakfast is delicious- the best fresh orange juice, fresh fruit and home grown eggs! Even the tomatoes are from the garden and you can taste the difference. We would definitely recommend the Boathouse. Thanks. "
Guest from Oxford, October 2020

Very good breakfast,"
Guest from Huddersfield, September 2020
"Jane was very welcoming and friendly from the moment we arrived and throughout our stay. Our accommodation (the Sail Loft) was excellent with plenty of space, a really comfortable bed and plenty of places to sit. There was also a small private patio outside.It had the benefit of its own private front door. Both the continental and cooked breakfasts were most enjoyable and we appreciated the flexibility of when we could have breakfast brought to our own front door. We also took advantage of being able to sit out and relax in the garden / patio area with a wide range of chairs and even throws for when it got chilly. Overall, we throughly enjoyed our stay."
Guest from Orpington, September 2020
"We will be back!
Everything was wonderful.
Thank you so much Jane"
Guest from Barnet, September 2020
"Jane is an exceptional hostess. She made our stay very comfortable with her thoughtful and accommodating attitude. The rooms were immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable. My cooked breakfast was quite possibly the best I've ever had at a B and B."
Guest from London, September 2020
"Nice location with a lovely garden area. Our room had tv and tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfasts were excellent for choice, quality and quantity. Jane, the owner was very welcoming, helpful and friendly.
Ideally situated to visit both Bosham and Chichester."
Guest from Haslemere, September 2020

Guest from Tavistock, September 2020
"Excellent B n B. Very clean and comfortable. All rooms, including breakfast room have external doors, so ideal for social distancing. Very pleasant and helpful owner.
Boat trip around Bosham harbour was great.
West Dean Gardens and Weald and Downland living Museum well worth a visit."
Guest from Market Bosworth, September 2020
good facilities and excellent cleanliness - Jane was so lovely.
Will definitely come again.s lovely"
Guest from London, September 2020
"We so enjoyed our four night stay and Jane was a perfect hostess; the room and comfort was perfect; the cooked breakfast perfect and set us up for that day! We have no hesitation in our recommendation of the Bosham Boathouse.
Bosham is a delightful village to explore on foot and we enjoyed takeaway fish and chips overlooking the estuary. A good walk to Dell Quay along the shoreline of the estuary, armed with binoculars, is a joy. We so enjoyed a dinner sitting outside the local pub, Crown and Anchor."
Guest from Market Harborough, September 2020
"Lovely, friendly and warm couple. Jane could not do enough for us and was very apologetic and swift to remedy a couple of things. She made us feel very welcome.
My only advice when booking the Apuldram would be to check to see who’s staying above when you’re there if you’re sensitive to noise above you, because you can hear every move. We had a wonderful few days there and I would definitely recommend it to people."
Guest from London, September 2020
"We recently stayed at The Bosham Boathouse in the Garden room and Apuldram. Both were stylishly decorated and spotlessly clean with luxury linens and super comfy beds and pillows. It was great to have the lovely garden to explore as well as our own designated private outdoor space. Jane our host could not have been more accommodating and made us feel very well looked after. We would definitely recommend staying here.
The Boathouse is ideally located to explore beautiful Bosham and Emsworth harbours. We also visited Chichester for a canal boat trip, Pagham and Selsy. We had a car but there is a bus stop located outside the guesthouse and fellow guests were using the trains and local buses. There are also several local pubs, an Indian restaurant, Co-op, fish and chip shop and garden centre with cafe within walking distance.."
Guest from Romsey, September 2020
"We stayed here for two nights and we wish we could have stayed longer. We couldn’t have been made more welcome by Jane (the owner).
The room was excellent. The breakfast was delicious made even better by the wonderful chats with Jane.
We will be returning as soon as we can.
If you don’t have a car, download the bus times before you go. It’s possible to travel all round the area and beyond on 56 and 700 bus.
Guest from London , September 2020
"Jane was lovely"
Guest from Southsea, August 2020
"Very friendly and accommodating Owner. Particularly liked outside garden area with room and own access. Room was very clean and comfortable, ideal for short stays. Car parking on site.
A trip to Portsmouth historic harbour well worth a visit. West Wittering beach is a great day walking or just enjoying the views. Roman Villa in walking distance, many local pubs nearby."
Guest from Kent, August 2020
Comfortable, relaxing and quiet. Great place to stay when visiting Chichester and surrounding areas
Liked: There's lots of good things to say about the Boathouse and I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay. Although the property is located on a fairly busy road just outside Fishbourne, the rooms themselves are quiet and I had the best night's sleep in ages. We stayed one night in The Garden Room which, like the other Boathouse rooms, has its own private access at the back of the main property (parking is at the front and there is plenty of it). The room was a good size, comfortable and clean with everything we needed, including a coffee machine. Jane, our warm and friendly host, also brought us bottles of chilled water and fresh milk. We loved the private, sheltered seating area outside our room which overlooked the beautiful main garden. The bed was comfortable and I slept like a log. Despite strong winds the next morning, it was warm enough to eat our breakfast outside. Jane brought this out to us as, due to Covid, her breakfast room was closed. There was fresh orange juice, yoghurt and fruit, warm croissants, coffee and a delicious cooked breakfast (for which we paid a little extra). As a bonus, the breakfast included a freshly laid egg courtesy of the resident hen! In this strange Covid-conscious world, we felt very 'safe' at The Boathouse. It's a shame we were only staying for one night but I'm sure we will return. Thank you!
Disliked: There's nothing we did not like."
Margo, August 2020
From the great welcome from Jane all the way through we had a great stay. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfy .The breakfast was exceptional ( eggs were superb ) Nothing was too much bother and would recommend to family and friends"
Guest from Walton on Trent, August 2020
This was our first break since before lockdown and we were in need of some overnight R&R while we visited family in Chichester. The Boathouse provides lovely, self-contained accommodation, each room having its own entrance which made it feel comfortbly socially distanced in the Covid world. Everything was done to a high standard and, Jane, the owner, was a friendly and charming host. We stayed in the ground floor Garden Room which had its own private, sheltered area of decking with table and chairs. I had the best night's sleep in months as the room was very quiet. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast the next morning sitting outside overlooking the garden, which is beautiful. We felt very relaxed here and even though we stayed just the one night, it did feel like a proper break. Thank you!"
Guest from Stratford-Upon-Avon, August 2020
We had a great stay at the boathouse. Jane was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. We loved both the continental and full English breakfast and we were even had freshly laid eggs from Jane's chickens as a bonus"
Guest from Ditton, August 2020
The Bosham Boathouse is a gem! Comfortable, friendly, clean and welcoming. I loved having our own little patio area, and appreciated the thoughtful touches such as fresh flowers from the garden in the room and the generously sized fluffy towels! We will definitely return!"
Guest from Reading, August 2020
Very comfortable clean room. Having its own entrance made it feel very private."
Guest from Moorlinch, August 2020
Very friendly and attentive staff - Jane could not have been more hospitable. During hot weather the nearby road can be a little distracting but it is peaceful at night
Tips for other travellers
Very conveniently located with ample parking and ease of access to public transport. Perfect for a short walking or cycling break, being opposite a quiet lane leading to the village of Bosham."
Guest from Epsom, August 2020
We were made very welcome by Jane and had a lovely relaxing stay in the Garden Room. It was great to have some outside space with patio doors leading directly onto a patio area with table and chairs."

Guest from Bristol, August 2020
Grant and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Sail Loft. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable, and conveniently located for both coastal and inland activities. Bosham village is within easy walking distance - very picturesque, with a lovely harbour, pubs/cafes and craft shop. Our host Jane was very friendly, and keen to ensure that our stay was trouble free. We would definitely return."

Guest from Market Harborough, July 2020
I absolutely loved my stay, the Bosham Boathouse is such a wonderful oasis of calm. Jane has really thought about everything from a guest's perspective and you would have to travel very far and wide (and I have) before coming across such a special visitor experience. I can't wait to come back and bring friends and family.
Guest from Camborne, July 2020
Perfectly situated for exploring the best of West Sussex, The Bosham Boathouse is delightful. My room was beautifully decorated, comfy bed, great little bathroom and lovely private terrace. Jane went out of her way to welcome me and make my stay as pleasant as possible. I'll definitely be back.
Guest from London, July 2020
Thank you for making our stay in Bosham such a comfortable and pleasant experience.
We both felt very relaxed in these uncertain times and enjoyed the long walks and fresh sea air.
We hope it won't be too long before things return to normal and you can fully re-open your guest house again"

The whole property is super cute and accessible. Jane the owner is very friendly, attentive and personal. I’ve stayed in many 5 star hotels all over the world what stood out at their property was the personal interaction and value."
Guest from Croydon, March 2020
"My partner and I received a warm welcome on our arrival and shown to the Garden Room. Really gorgeous room with a TV, kettle, and nespresso machine. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Really nice towels as well. The shower was also really good. There's a table and chairs just outside the Garden Room's door to sit and have coffee of a sunny morning."
Molly, March 2020
"This B&B has it all. Nice views, nice room - with separate entrance, lovely hosts & close to some good pubs & restaurants.
We felt really welcome in the B&B. With Jane being so friendly and kind-hearted.
We would stay here again when we're around."
NkkVr, March 2020
I visited for one night and it was truly a wonderful stay! The bed was super comfortable and the decor of the room of a very high standard. The real luxuries included were the homemade cookies and the Nespresso coffee. To top it all Jane was such a warm and friendly host. Can’t recommend this place enough."
Caroline, March 2020
A delightful B and B. The rooms were airy, pristine and beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. Our host Jane was warm and welcoming and very accommodating. She had provided some lovely brownies and biscuits to go with our coffee (made from the nespresso machine provided) or teas when we arrived. There was also a garden area with charming little sheltered terraces for warmer weather. The B and B is ideally situated for the Chichester coastal area with its harbours and wildfowl. Lots of good walking. Would definitely recommend this B and B for short break or holiday."
"Would highly recommend this lovely B&B. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly, great value for money. The room is so comfortable with lovely personal touches that makes the stay more special. The bed was so comfortable. Look forward to returning for another visit soon. We would like to say a massive Thank you for making our stay so welcoming. All the finishing touches were so lovely. Good luck in your new venture you deserve it to do so well. Thanks again Sue and Craig."
Sue & Craig, Feb 2020
"Very stylish space, immaculately clean and a very comfy bed for a good night's sleep. Good off road parking with easy access. Location is great for Chichester, Fishbourne and a not to far away Portsmouth or the south downs. Thoroughly recommend the Sail Loft at "Jane's place. Great location and thanks for the detailed instructions very helpful. Fingers crossed for better weather for the next visit down south."
Paul, Feb 2020
"The Sail Loft. Ideal for Chichester and Goodwood. The sail loft room is a fabulous place to stay with impeccable attention to detail and a very warm welcome from the host. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation. Fabulous place to stay, warm welcome and fantastic attention to detail in all aspects. The sail loft room is a stunning space to have the use of as an airbnb guest. Thank you 🙏🏻"
Jen, Feb 2020
"What a gem. I recently spent a night at the Bosham Boathouse. A warm welcome by the owners Jane and Hamish. What a lovely place. The bed was so comfortable, I had an excellent night's sleep in a lovely room. Bosham is such a pretty village and the owners were eager to recommend places to visit in the surrounding area. Can't wait to visit again.
Sue, Jan 2020
"Perfect base to explore from. Whilst the weather was dull the welcome was warm the beds so comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Ideally situated for exploring Chichester with its wealth of history along with numerous coffee shops and galleries. Easy walk into Bosham which is charming. If you like horse racing Goodwood is within easy reach. Will be returning when the weather is warmer as still lots to see."
