You can tell that West Sussex locals are proud of the white sand beaches, safe swimming areas and rich wildlife that surround the two little villages of East - and West Wittering, which they refer to as ‘God’s Pocket.’ But they’re not the only ones.

Located between Brighton and Portsmouth, this sunny peninsula – which has its own micro climate – has seen increasing numbers of city slickers come here for a break from urban life, known affectionately as the ‘Wittering Classes’. This area has everything we love about the English seaside: that wonderful carnival atmosphere, the pretty rose and honeysuckle-festooned cottages, sweeping seascapes peppered with multi-coloured sailing boats, fudge shops, tea rooms and atmospheric pubs. And, thanks largely to the abundance of bird and animal life in the Witterings, much of it is now a protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Don’t worry, though, you don’t have to tread too carefully. It’s a great place to try sailing, kitesurfing, fishing and horse riding, too. Once you try it, we’ve a feeling you’ll want to come back.
