Overview of West Sussex
Embrace a serene marine lifestyle with our particular stretch of coastline in the Arun District of West Sussex extending from Littlehampton to Ferring. Lined with gorgeous, traditional English beach huts, café shacks and impressive coastal residences, this tranquil region delicately balances seaside serenity with vibrant village communities.
Situated between Brighton and Chichester, our offering in West Sussex provides an unrivalled location that boasts charming countryside and crisp, coastal living, complemented with nearby Cathedrals and Castles. Whether you prefer your carriage by car, train, boat or even plane – West Sussex offers them all. For weekday commuters, London can be reached by direct train in around an hour and a half. For the weekend enthusiasts, the waters of Littlehampton Marina and Chichester Harbour may have more appeal or even head east along the coast, and you will find bohemian Brighton, vibrant and lively.
In the vale of the South Downs, now an International Dark Sky Reserve, you can ramble until your heart’s content, stopping along the way at the many idyllic English country pubs and tea rooms. National Heritage places of interest within the area include Petworth House, Fishbourne Roman Palace, Weald and Downland Museum, and of course our beloved Arundel - the quaint postcard-picture worthy town steeped in history. Arundel Castle commands the centre of this medieval town and seamlessly combines traditional countryside living and a modern appreciation for art and culture, epitomised by Arundel’s popular Festivals. The Chichester Festival Theatre is another cultural hub hosting pre-West End performances.
West Sussex is perhaps most well-known for its social events in the seasonal calendar, whether watching Polo at Cowdray Park, wine tasting at Tinwood Vineyard, racing at Fontwell, or attending the many esteemed events held by the Duke of Richmond at the distinguished Goodwood Estate. Goodwood is internationally renowned for an array of sporting events, including the horse races at Glorious Goodwood, motor racing at the Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival, and several golfing, aeronautical and private member events. The Duke himself describes Goodwood as a “perfectly crafted quintessentially British experience – always delivered with a twist”.
