Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of an attractive block built in 2000 on the south bank of the River Adur which links into Shoreham Harbour. Occasional coastal vessels visit the working quay opposite, and local sailing and other pleasure craft or those visiting from other UK or European ports, pass up and down the river below, adding constant interest to the vista.
The apartment has long-distance views over Shoreham to the South Downs and, to the south, the sea.
Within a few minutes walk of the apartment there are good local shops, cafes, a bakery and the beach - which is a designated nature reserve. About 15 minutes walk away via the pedestrian bridge over the River Adur, Shoreham town has excellent shops, pubs and a wide selection of restaurants. Shoreham railway station (about 15 minutes walk) provides frequent services along the south coast to Southampton, Brighton and beyond, with direct access to Gatwick and London Victoria. There is also an extremely good bus service which runs along the south coast and to Arundel.
Among the many attractions within easy access are Arundel Castle, Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Parham House, Wakehurst Place (Kew & NT), Sheffield Park, (NT), Borde Hill Gardens, Leonardslee Gardens, Petworth Park (NT), the Brighton Royal Pavilion, and glorious walks over the South Downs National Park and the beautiful Sussex coast, including the South Downs Way. Shoreham airport is about 2 miles from the apartment, where short leisure or longer flights are available.
Shoreham is also an excellent base for cyclists (there are bike racks in the car park) with miles of coastal riding as well as many trails up onto the South Downs.

The South East England region
The South East of England in general, and Sussex in particular are extremely attractive, with areas of glorious countryside, masses of mature trees, rolling Downs and some of the prettiest towns and villages in the UK.
The South Downs has recently become a National Park and a whole section of this can be seen, rising above Shoreham, from the apartment.
Shoreham-by-Sea offers regular festivals, one of the best farmers' markets in the South, craft fairs, the annual Shoreham airshow in September and has excellent shopping and eating facilities. It is also just a short drive or bus or train ride from Brighton which buzzes with a multitude of events, activities, brilliant night life, a wonderful variety of shops including the renowned Lanes (and the North Laine area) and the famous must-see Royal Pavilion.
We purchased the apartment for our own use (and still use it regularly) because we love the area so much. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed along the beach, up the river, or over the Downs directly from the apartment, and with short journeys by train or car you can be savouring the buzz of Brighton or the delights of Arundel or Chichester.
Sussex is littered with magnificent Houses and Gardens and attractions open to the public including Arundel Castle, Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Parham House, Wakehurst Place (Kew & NT), Sheffield Park, (NT), Borde Hill Gardens, Leonardslee Gardens and Petworth Park (NT). Less than 15 minutes away from Shoreham station, Brighton has the Royal Pavilion, the fascinating North Laine area, the 'traditional' Lanes and a plethora of other attractions.
Shoreham has a fascinating history having been a major port and the centre of the British film industry in its time. There is a very active community with several festivals taking place during the summer months. Shoreham Airport offers leisure flights and the area is a haven for sailing and kite surfing.
