If you are into deep sea fishing our good friend 'Mac' McLaughlin runs 2 charter fishing boats Purdy and Flamer out of Chichester Marina and is available for your fishing party. Mac has over 20 years of fishing experience and knows all the good marks. Details in the house.

A five minute walk will bring you to the local pub and all the shops you could want e.g. bakery, butcher, greengrocer, a very good Fish and Chip Shop and Off Licence.

Selsey is very much an unspoiled village with it's unique community spirit - dogs are welcome almost everywhere and facilities for the elder person are very much catered for. For the younger generation there are clubs (in season) at the Bunns Leisure Centre and at other times close by. Or you could just lie on one of the many beaches!

The master kitchen is very well equipped including a double oven, gas hob, juicer and microwave. There is also a washer/dryer and the garden is fully enclosed.

The downstairs flat has a fully equipped kitchenette (fridge/freezer, microwave, Baby Belling, kettle) and although there have been no modifications it is suitable for persons of limited mobility with access to the shower room, conservatory and garden.

Up to two well behaved pets are accepted but there is an additional charge of £25 to cover for carpet cleaning etc as we do have guests who have an allergic reaction to animals.

The only other consideration we have is for our neighbours. The area is renown for its tranquility so if you have a "bash" please bear this in mind.

About this location

The West Sussex region

Selsey is situated on the southern most point of the Manhood Peninsular and has an exceptionally sunny climate with a weather system all of its own. Whilst it's cloudy in the next village, Selsey can be sunny. It has a history dating back to pre-Roman times with many sites of archaeological interest including the Roman Palace at Fishbourne, one of the most significant Roman buildings in the country which is just a short drive away.

Pagham and Chichester Harbours are are short distance away and are both Nature Reserves and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Both are Internationally important bird sanctuaries and subsequently are fantastic for bird watching all year round, there are numerous hides and vantage points for the enthusiast or casual observer. Furthermore, the South Downs with their biodiversity are readily accessible. Walking or strolling is available from outside the front door.

Further places of interest are the market town of Chichester with its Roman walls, the historic Portsmouth Dockyard, Petworth House with Southampton, Brighton and London within easy reach not to mention Goodwood and Fontwell racecourses.


East Beach is a working beach with a fishing fleet that lands locally caught fish, lobster and crab every day which is available from one of the many outlets on the beach. Within 5 minutes walk is an extensive children's play area, a duck pond and an array of shops including the best (in our opinion) Fish and Chip Shop on the South Coast. All you could want is there; butcher, fresh bakery, green grocer and off licence with the added bonus of a dive shop offering divers access to the many dive sites close to the coast. Deep sea fishing is also available through the chartered fishing boat "Purdey"'. Further details on request.

The village offers a broad range of shops to suit every taste and dogs are welcome almost everywhere. All the pubs are unique in their atmosphere and a wide range of restaurants make sure you are always spoilt for choice, try The Seal pub for wonderful home cooking and The Lifeboat for freshly caught fish from their own fishing boat.

In season, April-October, Bunns Leisure Centre is open with a Fun Fair and restaurants. It also has a swimming pool and health club which are open all year round. Golf is available at the Selsey Golf Club at the entrance to the village as is horse riding at North Common Farm which is enroute to the golf club. Tennis and bowls are provided at the golf club and also at Crablands Tennis and Bowls Club in the village.

Selsey has several events to commend it through the year. There is a festival at the end of the summer, Lifeboat Week which is fantastic and a Christmas light switching on ceremony on with so much free food and drink you have to do it to believe it. There is also a firework celebration. Unfortunately all the dates change so there is no exact calendar to point to. To get up to speed get a free copy of Selsey Life, it has everything in it.
