Buoy Cottage is a three bedroom chalet bungalow which has been newly upgraded and now offers a very well presented interior with the benefit of having its own separate first floor master bedroom suite. The bungalow has two ground floor bedrooms and an attractive conservatory leading off the well equipped kitchen. The beach, which is within only 400m is at this point very quiet and nearly always empty, even in the summer, this is due to there being no car parks or well known public access points. Local shops and amenities in East Wittering are approximately 0.6 km away.

Approximately 65 miles south west of London, 'West Manhood' covers a small area starting some 3 miles south of the Cathedral City of Chichester and stretches a further 4 miles to the coast where the beaches look across The Solent to the Isle of Wight.
The villages of East Wittering, West Wittering and Bracklesham Bay are situated here and this is where you will find a wide choice of self-catered accommodation offered by the holiday letting department of 'Baileys Estate Agents', (0044 1243 672217). A mainline station located at Chichester provides a regular service to London Victoria in about 1 hour 45 minutes and to Gatwick in about 1 hour 5 minutes. An alternative, slightly faster rail service to London is also available from Havant in about 1 hour 20 minutes to London Waterloo.
The Cathedral city of Chichester is one of the most well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK, with its centre sitting within the famous old Roman walls. The four main pedestrianised streets, North, South, East and West converge on the central, ancient Market Cross and offer a comprehensive range of shops, bars and restaurants.
The arts are well catered for as Chichester is home to the world renowned Festival Theatre and smaller Minerva Theatre and also the Pallant House Art Gallery which is now enjoying a well deserved international reputation for its contemporary art. Annually the city plays host to a number of celebrated music and arts festivals centred around the Cathedral.
The waters of the Solent and Chichester Harbour are particularly popular with sailors. The harbour is made up of a series of tidal creeks and is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty with wonderful walks while Chichester Marina, Birdham Pool and Itchenor Sailing Club provide the nearest sailing facilities. The 'National Trust' reserve (1.5 miles) at East Head in West Wittering has perhaps the most picturesque 'blue flag' beach in West Sussex and the award winning coastline of the Witterings and Bracklesham Bay in general provides many opportunities for swimming, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and landboarding.
Other recreational activities are well catered for, there is a multiplex cinema in Chichester and several Golf courses are in close proximity. Apart from its' internationally known racecourse which offers the 'Glorious Goodwood' meeting in the summer, Goodwood also provides many other facilities including golf, country club and airfield and plays host to the world famous annual 'Festival of Speed' and the motor 'Revival' meeting in September at the historic motor racing circuit.
There are exceptional walking, horse riding and mountain biking opportunities to be enjoyed in the South Downs countryside which now enjoys the status of a national park.
