People flock to East Wittering during the holiday season thanks to our world-famous beaches that are so beautiful and a way of life that’s relaxed and warm.It’s little wonder we experienced significant building development during the 1960s and ‘80s when our rich mix of character house styles in the Witterings made it hard for people to leave. Many of the properties in the area enjoy wonderful views across the English Channel and the sound of distant waves provides a soothing backing track to everyday life here.
