South Coast Break

Join us on our fantastic value single parents seaside holiday to Littlehampton, where we’ll experience all the charm of the great British coast. Perfect for bucket and spade breaks, our accommodation is just a short stroll to an award-winning Blue Flag beach. Kids, teens and single parents alike can enjoy the beach side setting  in the glorious South East sunshine, as well as enjoying watersports in and around the scenic harbour and buzzing marina.

Located on the West Sussex coast, this charming waterfront destination is perfect for all the family, with sun, sea and sand and exciting attractions for  right on the doorstep.

This coastal gem is hard to beat, whether you’re seeking a traditional seaside single parents holiday or something just a little more adventurous. We’re staying just minutes from beautiful beaches, chic beach-front cafes, theme parks, acres of green parks for the kids to go wild in and even a miniature railway!

Grab those buckets and spades and stroll to the nearby Blue Flag beach to soak up that plentiful South East sunshine, or step things up a notch with powerboat rides and rollercoasters in the nearby Harbour Park amusement park. Right next door to our accommodation is the fascinating Heritage Look and Sea Centre, plus there’s the chance to take to the waves on a harbour boat trip. Walkers and cyclists will have plenty of chances to drink in the revitalising sea air, while picnickers can laze away the afternoons in the green, flower-filled Mewsbrook Park and its boating lakes.

If you can drag yourself away from Littlehampton’s many attractions, you can head further afield to explore historic Arundel Castle, enjoy a spot of shopping in Brighton or feed the birds at Arundel Wetland Centre.

Accommodation

We’re staying in the perfect spot to enjoy everything Littlehampton has to offer. Our cosy, nautical themed hostel accommodation sits on the waterfront of Fisherman’s Wharf, an award-winning new development on the east bank of the River Arun. We’re just 5 minutes’ walk from both the railway station and a stunning Blue Flag beach. It’s the ideal base from which to explore the area, starting with the Look and Sea visitor and heritage centre (plus café) right on the doorstep.

Our accommodation has a charming nautical theme, with each room having its own ‘local’ name. We’ll be staying in shared dorm and family rooms, although there are a small number of private rooms for single parents and kids available. The property also has a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, lounge and dining room, plus cycle store and laundry facilities. Comfortable, cosy and conveniently located – we can’t wait to rest our heads here after fun-packed days spent immersing ourselves in seaside life.

What's Included

The cost includes 3 nights’ accommodation in private or shared rooms (same sex adults). The trip will be accompanied by a Single With Kids coordinator who will coordinate events to bring the group together.

There are both private and shared rooms on this trip. Shared rooms are a great way of making new friends and where possible we put together families with children of a similar age (and always same sex single parents). Please note, shared rooms are not suitable for families with children under 4 unless you’re sharing with friends.

This is a self-catering holiday, so no meals will be provided. However, Littlehampton has lots of incredible places to eat, plus we may be organising some communal meals to get the group together – full details will be provided nearer the event.

Things To Do

There’s a huge amount to see and do on this single parents’ summer holiday – in fact, you may struggle to fit it all in! An award-winning beach is just a short stroll away, and even closer is the Look and Sea Visitor Centre with its amazing panoramic views of the harbour. The whole family can enjoy picnics and lazy days in the sun at Mewsbrook Park with its flowerbeds, charming café and boating lakes, and there are plenty of scenic routes for walking and cycling enthusiasts to explore nearby.

For the 2 to 12-year-olds, the Harbour Amusement Park is fantastic fun, as is the miniature railway. You’ll be hard-pressed to pry older children and teens away from the beach or the cool waterfront cafes, but if you can, point them in the direction of the many watersports in and around the harbour, from boat trips and powerboating to windsurfing and much more.

Fancy a day trip? You’re spoilt for choice, with Brighton and Portsmouth easily accessible by public transport. There’s also Arundel Castle and the Arundel Wetlands Centre to explore, plus horse and motor racing on the Goodwood Estate.

Trip Size

This is a small to medium trip, a great choice whether it’s your first trip with Single With Kids or you’ve been on lots of single parent holidays with us.
