About the home
Our apartment is situated in a quiet and peaceful residential area, yet it is only 10 minutes walk from the beach and the attractions of Worthing.
This apartment would ideally suit a couple or a couple with a baby. (We can provide a cot, high chair and baby gate.)
The large living room is full of character and still has the original fireplace.
Worthing is a traditional seaside resort sandwiched between the South Downs National Park and five miles of award winning coastline. It is only 12 miles from Brighton, 5 miles from Arundel and 15 miles from Chichester. All well worth a visit.
After a busy day of sight seeing, walking or other activities, this is a home away from home to relax in. There are also good pubs and take aways to be found nearby!
(Please note that we intend to purchase new furniture, including a sofa bed, in August so the apartment will then be suitable for 4 people.)

The South East England / Sussex region
Sussex is a very special county. An English gem of a county! Here an award winning coastline meets beautiful rolling countryside. Sussex boasts picturesque villages, traditional seaside resorts, historic houses and gardens, sports and leisure attractions and more:
South Downs National Park - England's newest national park, two thirds of which is in Sussex. Enjoy walks in the countryside, visits to the gardens of the Sussex Weald, wildlife watching at nature reserves and country parks or a pub lunch in one of the many villages. Or fly a kite from the vast open space of Devil's Dyke.
Beaches and Coastline - Worthing beach is just a short walk from the apartment, but there are numerous beaches within easy reach (including for example Brighton beach and East Head, a national trust beach at the mouth of Chichester harbour).
Historic houses and gardens – There are so many to choose from. Arundel Castle, Chichester Cathedral, Parham House and Gardens, Nymans (National Trust garden) and Bramber (an enchanting medieval house) are all within very easy reach.
Museums – A huge variety for example: Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre, the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum (Chichester), Look and See Visitor Centre (Littlehampton).......
Arundel (10 minutes drive) is a charming market town which is a delight to the visitor. It spans the River Arun between the South Downs and the Sussex coastline. Its many attractions include: olde worlde tearooms, river cruises, stunning castle and cathedral, open air heated lido and the famous Arundel Wetland Centre.
Transport Delights – including historic railways (South Downs Light Railway, Bluebell Railway) and the Wey and Arun Canal (boat trips, cycling and walking).
The Worthing / Poets District area
Worthing is a classic, traditional seaside resort and an ideal place from which to explore the Sussex coast and the South Downs. Worthing has a vibrant town centre with a range of cafes, restaurants, tearooms and pubs.
Activities on your doorstep include watersports,cycling and walking (coastal path, Cissbury Ring), kitesurfing (Worthing is the British centre for kite surfing) and ice skating (February and March).
Worthing's Beach House Park is synonymous with bowls with the national championships being played here each year along with many international events and the greens are considered to be some of the best in the country.
There is also a variety of entertainment including the Connaught and the Pavilion Theatres and the Dome (a restored Edwardian gem of a cinema).
Churches include the English Martyrs Church which is notable for having the only known reproduction of the Sistine Chapel in the world - two thirds the original size.
The Poets District is a residential area of period houses and it is said that Oscar Wilde wrote 'The Importance of Being Earnest' in this area!
Worthing has so much to offer and it is recognised as having one of the sunniest climates in the UK. (It has its own microclimate caused by the River Arun to the West, River Adur to the East and the South Downs to the North.)

We felt right at home here. It was quiet, impeccably clean, bright and spacious. The small shop close by had all we needed to prepare food in the well equipped kitchen. It was convenient to the railway station and to a few restaurants/pubs. Highly recommended if you want to spend time near the sea or tour the Sussex/Hampshire area or travel by train to London
Thank you for your kind review. We are so please that you enjoyed your stay in Worthing and felt at home in the apartment.
