Full description

Situated in the heart of the charming village of Felpham, this traditional Coastguards Cottage was built by the Admiralty alongside the Coastguard Station circa 1861.

Offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain, the property is set in a cul-de-sac with no passing traffic and within walking distance of a number of cosy independent public houses and a variety of places to eat in or take out. The excellent variety of shops are all nearby and a private walkway for residents leads down to the beach and beach cafes situated on the promenade. Upon entering the cottage you are greeted by a hall with flagstone flooring, which leads to both the modern kitchen and the sitting room, which has a fireplace and a door out to the rear garden.

Upstairs is home to all three bedrooms and the bathroom. Bedrooms one and two each have a feature fireplace. The property also enjoys character features which include high ceilings, high skirting boards and sash windows.

Outside, there are gardens to both the front and back of the property providing west and easterly aspects. In all, Coastguards Cottages makes a perfect retreat for couples and especially for families with children looking for a cosy cottage near the seaside. It would also be well suited to those looking for a holiday let or long term let.


The pretty village of Felpham offers a wide range of local facilities including a doctors surgery with pharmacy, a sports centre with swimming pool, golf club, public houses and shops. Felpham Sailing Club and Middleton Sports Club are also nearby. A regular bus service links the village to Bognor Regis which offers a more comprehensive range of amenities. Historic Arundel, the cathedral city of Chichester and the famous Goodwood motor circuit and racecourse can all be found within a ten mile radius approximately.

Why live in Middleton-on-Sea?

The development of modern Middleton began after World War I, when Captain H Rowlands S Coldicott purchased great swathes of farmland with a plan to create both a residential estate and a village community.

This led to the development of the private Sea Lane Estate, which is still a sought-after residential area today thanks to its proximity to the sea and local shops. There are also many pretty thatched properties in the area along with small retirement apartments, bungalows and large family homes that enjoy direct access to the sea while, in neighbouring Felpham, we have the glorious private Summerley Estate.

Middleton-on-Sea is within easy reach of Chichester and Bognor Regis and is a perfect setting for family life. We have two local schools, including the Bishop Tufnell Primary School and the Felpham Community College for secondary students, along with a day nursery for pre-school children. We also have a good range of shops for such a small village, including coffee shops, a Post Office, a family butcher, a general store, newsagent, fish and chip shops, gift shops, a florist and some friendly pubs.

At low tide, Middleton-on-Sea’s sandy beach stretches from Littlehampton to Bognor Regis and is a favourite for local dog walkers and those who enjoy the fresh air and tranquillity of the sea.  Elmer Sands, a mile east of Middleton, is a particular beauty spot, enhanced by the interesting rock islands that were built as a sea defence two decades ago and which have left rock pools and safe areas for swimming and beginner water sports. Over in Felpham you’ll find beachfront cafés, the Arun Leisure Centre, which has a swimming pool and a well equipped gym, and public tennis courts next to the Promenade.
