About this location
The West Sussex region
The South Coast of England and the local area around Pagham, has a wealth of things to do and see. From National Trust country estates such as Petworth House, Uppark House to Slindon and East Head (west Wittering Beach). Within a short drive you can visit; Arundel Castle & Gardens, Chichester Cathedral, Goodwood House and Sculpture Park (Cass Sculpture Foundation), Chichester Festival Theatre, WWT Arundel Wetland Centre, Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, West Dean Gardens, Amberley Working Open Air Museum, Tangmere Military Aviation Museum and Fishbourne Roman Palace. Slightly further afield but still definitely worth a visit are the historic dockyards of Portsmouth with the awe inspiring HMS Victory and the recently opened Mary Rose Museum exhibiting Britain's great Tudor warship.
The village of Pagham & Nyetimber is located to the West of Bognor Regis and is bordered by open farm land. Its internationally important harbour is an SSI and plays host to 20,000 migratory geese in the winter and numerous waders and truly great birdwatching area throughout the year as birds feed on the mudflats at low tide and the surrounding fields at high tide. Pagham beach is shingle giving way to wide stretches of sand at low tide and panoramic views from Bognor Regis to Selsey Bill.
There is a bus stop conveniently located a few meters away from the self catering accommodation which can transport you into Bognor Regis, Chichester or Midhurst.
