The West Sussex region

Visiting Chichester and the surrounding area in,West Sussex

With its unique combination of an historic city, set in glorious English countryside, including The South Downs National Park, and located only minutes from the beautiful south coast, Chichester promises to be an unforgettable experience just waiting to be explored.

A wealth of attractions and world famous events!

Whether you're visiting Chichester for a romatic break, a shopping trip with the girls, a golf weekend with the boys or a family holiday; the area really does offer plenty to see and do for everyone.

Discover Chichester's long and dramatic history at the Chichester and District Museum; gaze into a night's sky at the South Downs Planetarium. For historic buildings the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum at nearby Singleton is a must. Goodwood's famous Racecourse and Motor Circuit, where hats, horses and hair-raising fast cars entertain worldwide visitors and locals alike!

And finally some peace and tranquility at Brandy Hole Copse, close to The Coach House, designated a Local Nature Reserve in 2001 to help protect and enhance its diverse flora and fauna, which includes a sea of bluebells every spring and numerous rare and fascinating species throughout the year.



A rural village in West Sussex within minutes from the South Downs, West Wittering beach seeped in history and beauty.

Brief history

It is believed that the name Westbourne is derived from the fact that the River Ems, which in times gone by would have generally been referred to as Bourne, indicating a brook, marked the western boundary of Sussex, hence attracting to itself the name West Bourne and so passing it on to the village through which it flows'. Formerly Westbourne was renowned as a market town centred around the Square. It was famous for sheep, cattle and pony trading and reached the height of its prosperity in the late 1600's, during the reign of Charles II. Although today there are far fewer shops than there were a hundred years ago, Westbourne still retains a vibrant commercial centre, boasting a selection of village shops, garages and pubs as well as the local school and the churches. Indeed the parish church, St John the Baptist with its 18th century spire visible from all approaches, plays an integral part in village life.

The story of the village has been written and illustrated in a wonderful publication:

"The Westbourne Story" and a copy is available in The Coach House

This beautiful village has an intriguing and eventful history dating back some 1,000 years to the Norman Conquest. This story comes from the villagers who have lived here. Drawing on fascinating past and present reminiscence from local residents, authors Lucinda Roch and Matthew Toms combine factual narrative with anecdote to convey the intriguing story of Westbourne. A story of heroes, eccentrics, miscreants, murderers, admirals, ministers, millers and publicans.

This colourful look at the village contains over 800 new and old photographs, paintings and drawings in its 192 pages.

The Westbourne Story vividly depicts every aspect of village life and the community, from the beautiful listed houses and the characters who lived in them through to the churches, mills, schools, pubs and clubs.

All revenue from book sales is being used to support deserving Westbourne causes. Enjoy the story.

Incorporating 66 listed buildings, it is not surprising that part of Westbourne's charm lies in the diversity of its houses, ranging from timber-framed thatched cottages to Georgian mansions and Victorian terraces. Although its written history can be traced back to Domesday, a fire destroyed a large chunk of the village, resulting in the oldest surviving properties dating back to no earlier than the 16th century. Many shops have since been converted into residential properties but still display original features to indicate their past.

Close to Portsmouth & Chichester, the parish of Westbourne has always attracted naval personnel.

It is also home to many who work for local businesses and the village school continues to entice younger families into the neighbourhood. Residents appreciate Westbourne's rural charm, its sense of community and its thriving social life which, with the likes of Westbourne week, the charity Open Gardens (The Coach House's gardens are involved) and the Church fete, becomes particularly active in summer.

"Fantastic Stay"

We arrived at the property and were instantly impressed. The host (Emma) was incredibly welcoming and showed us around the property and explained where to find sone of the local amenities. The cottage itself was warm and welcoming, full of personal touches which helped us feel right at home. The location of the property was ideally situated in the local village with amenities such as the bakers, pubs, fish and chip shop as well as a co-op. Overall we were throughly impressed with our stay and would recommend anyone else visiting the area to stay here. We will certainly be staying here again in the near future.

"All the comforts of home, away from home."

We have recently returned home from a very relaxing stay at The Coach House. The property was very comfortable and homely. Nice welcoming touchs ( bread, butter,jam and milk and beautiful fresh flowers ). Ideally situated for visits to The New Forest, Portsmouth and Southampton. Westbourne is a very pretty village.A good location for walking. Emsworth railway station is a 25 minute walk away and then a 20 minute train journey to Portsmouth Harbour and all it's attractions. Cheaper than taking the car. Emma was a fantastic host,friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had a great stay and would highly recommend this property. We will definitely visit again. Thank you Emma.

Dear Anne & Steve Thank you. it was a pleasure to have you staying with us glad you enjoyed your break away. Hope to see you again. Best wishes Emma

"A very happy place"

I had the pleasure of staying with Emma and Chaz on and off for 18 months. It is a place I called home and felt very comfortable in. It is well provisioned, comfortable and in a great part of the world. Westbourne offers all you could ever want (pubs, fish and chips, cafes, bakers, convenience store, etc.) but if you stray further afield you can't go wrong with Chichester. Word of warning: 'Winchester' is NOT 'Chichester' and so if you get very drunk in London and get on the wrong train it is a £90 taxi journey after losing the argument that it is just down the road. Highly recommended as a weekend retreat for couples, a place for a small family to base themselves for a time, those wanting water sports, those wanting good booze and food, those wanting a place to snuggle up to and read and paint, those wanting to have a safe retreat after a heavy night in Portsmouth. Can't wait to go back.

"Valetines Break"

We were met with a very warm and welcoming experience we were given a quick guide of the coach house which was larger then expected and very well appointed and clean. The interior had a modern boutique finish which met with our approval & very good Wi Fi connection. There is a good selection of places to see and eat locally and close by or as we did great facilities to dine in. What we liked best no teenagers to pick up after for a weekend

"Great little getaway - in a lively country village"

A terrific place to "get away from it all" (but not so remote that there aren't a couple of great pubs, a fantastic local fish and chip shop and a well-stocked Co-Op nearby!). We were looking for some fresh air and long walks to blow London out of our hair - and we were not disappointed. Emma and family were very welcoming. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, but as the cottage is at the bottom of the garden there's still a little hustle and bustle of family life and pets bobbing about - which we enjoyed. The little touches on arrival were very welcome (milk, bread etc) and the cottage was modern, cosy and perfectly equipped for what we needed. The village and surrounds are beautiful, and there is a ton of information in the cottage to help you explore the area. Emma recommended a local restaurant in Emsworth (Fat Olives) which completely hit the spot! We were so relaxed by the end of our weekend that we wanted to stay an extra day... alas the cottage was fully booked and I can understand why.

"Friendly, convenient self catering accommodation"

From the outset Emma was a great communicator and when I arrived at the Cottage she and her husband were very accommodating and relaxed. The cottage itself was well appointed on the outskirts of the village and everything was withing walking distance (the bakery, the pub, grocery store, etc) which was great for me as I came without a car and relied on public transport. The cottage was very cute and comfortable and perfect for us providing a home from home feel. It may throw up a few issues with those of limited manoeverability, i.e. stairs up the bedroom and the bathroom was a little cramped so quite a twist to reach the toilet roll! Like I said, not a problem for us as we're very mobile but for anyone with mobility issues then this may not be the best cottage for you. The garden was gorgeous but not at all private as it is the garden to the main house so if you're looking for somewhere with private grounds this may not tick all boxes. All in all, I would thoroughly recommend this property if you are looking for self catering accommodation. It was comfortable, clean and very well appointed to local village facilities.
