The Chichester / Bracklesham area
Bracklesham Bay is a quaint village just south of Chichester and adjoining the seaside villages of the Witterings. It is an area of development with a new community building due to be built, and the community sports area offers a fantastic new children's playground, basketball court, football pitches which are all dog friendly and within a five minute walk of the Folly.
Bracklesham has a number of good restaurants, pubs (closest just a five minute walk away), takeaways and convenience stores and the area is renowned for its beach, surfing and fossil hunting.
From walking, biking, beach combing, fossil hunting, surfing, diving, eating at once of the many local pubs or just lying of the beach relaxing, there is something for everyone. Kids will love to spot the fossils...sharks teeth and old shells...at low tide, but fossilised shells can even be found just walking along the beach.
Outside of the immediate area there is a beautiful sandy beach at East Head, less than 10 minutes drive away.
