‘We enjoyed the waterside location,’ write trusted readers this year, drawn back for a third stay at Sam and Janet Bakose’s 350-year-old inn overlooking Pagham Harbour with its reserve of mudflats and salt marsh.
Some grown men play with train sets. Gudmund Olafsson went further in 2005, when he bought one of Britain’s most beautiful railway stations, renovating the property and the four Edwardian Pullman carriages on its disused line.
Small and personal, with a stylish interior, this hotel (part of the Mercer Collection) is in a restored Edwardian house retaining many of its original features. A short stroll from the seafront and the group’s gastropub, The Florence Arms (home-cooked food, ales, ciders, gins and fine wines).
