West Wittering and beyond

Farthings is situated just 300 metres from the Blue Flag West Wittering beach, a beautiful stretch of sand offering stunning views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and merging seamlessly with the East Head Nature Reserve a totally unspoilt headland at the entrance to Chichester Harbour. It is a wonderful piece of coastline to explore and enjoy with all the family. The sea is popular with wind and kite surfers, while shallow lagoons are left on extensive sandy flats at low tide. The whole area is internationally recognised for its wildlife, birds and unique beauty.

The whole area is internationally recognised for its wildlife, birds and unique beauty.

Just five minutes walk from the cottage and you can be at the National Trust area of East Head which is one of the last surviving pieces of natural coastline in West Sussex. It is a stunning example of a natural and dynamic coastal feature which is of great interest to environmentalists and ecologists because of its fragile nature. Why not explore East Head’s shingle, sandy beach and dunes that graduate into salt-marsh?

Further north and you can visit Itchenor which is abuzz with sail and pleasure boats and even if you don’t have a passion for sailing it is a fascinating quayside to sit and watch the constant activity.

Chichester, ten miles north of West Wittering, is the cathedral city for Sussex. It is one of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK. The city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls, and this helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot. There are plenty of good shops and restaurants, and if you enjoy the theatre, the Chichester Festival Theatre is worth booking due not only to the quality of productions, but the fact many world premieres are featured here as well. For the film buff the cinema complex to the south of the city also make for an enjoyable evening out.

Chichester Harbour is also well worth a visit, as an area of outstanding natural beauty it has a plethora of wildlife which shares this delightful area with the sailing activity that abounds. The harbour is made up of a series of tidal creeks and Bosham is probably the best known of the quayside villages and offers much of interest. Bosham is always bustling and is a joy to visit.

The Goodwood Estate, which is half an hours' drive from Farthings, is where you can enjoy the premier motorsport events as well as Glorious Goodwood racing festival. Or, of course, you can explore the wonders Goodwood House which combines the glamour of a great English country house with the warmth of a family home. Home to the Earl and Countess of March this elegant Sussex house provides a dramatic setting for one of the most significant private art collections in the country.

Close to beach but quiet

"Location is excellent - near to the beach but on a no through road so quiet. Pool was brilliant although would benefit from being completely fenced to make it safer for little ones. Loads of plates and big pots and pans but little room for storing foodstuff, and fridge and freezer much too small. Really appreciated the quality of the linen - very comfortable beds and pillows. Would definitely recommend this cottage and would consider returning. "
