Why live in the Witterings?

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.

There’s no shortage of things to do in the area, especially if you enjoy spending time on the beach, playing water sports and experiencing the countryside and wildlife.  Both East and West Wittering are well known for sailing and surfing and there are local sailing clubs at West Wittering, Itchenor and Dell Quay and mooring facilities at Chichester Marina. West Wittering beach is postcard-perfect with its vast expanses of fine golden sand while East Wittering is more typically English with a shingle shelf that’s exposed when the tide goes out leaving behind stunning areas of wet sand where you can make sandcastles to your heart’s content. The nearby Bracklesham Bay is especially popular with surfers, divers, windsurfers and paddle boarders as well as being a treasure trove for fossil hunters.

We have everything here you need to enjoy this idyllic lifestyle here. In the village you’ll find a good selection of shops, including mini supermarkets, greengrocers, butchers, banks, bakers and a fishmonger and everything is close by in Chichester and Portsmouth.  We have two local schools for children up to 11 years of age at East Wittering Community Primary School and West Wittering Parochial C of E School and a choice of secondary schools and further education options in Chichester.
