Because there is so much about the area that we want you to enjoy when you visit, the Wellies & Windbreaks team has created a Local’s Guide to the Area.  Please download this pdf guide and enjoy all of our recommendations.


All of our holiday homes are located in the Manhood Peninsula, the little-known name for this West Sussex coastal enclave just south of Chichester. Famous for its white sandy blue-flag beach at West Wittering, the area has long been a popular family holiday destination and magnet for surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing enthusiasts.  The seaside villages of East Wittering and Bracklesham Bay are popular with families and are well served with many beachfront rentals and a great selection of shops and restaurants.  Sailing opportunities are also abundant in Chichester Harbour and the numerous sailing clubs in the estuary, including Bosham and Itchenor.

There really is something for everyone in the area; culture and heritage at Chichester’s Festival Theatre and Cathedral; bird watching at the RSPB’s Medmerry Nature Reserve; dog walking or simply having fun jumping off the sand dunes at the National Trust’s East Head; or enjoying the thrills and highlights at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival, Goodwood Festival or the Estate’s new pet friendly event, Goodwoof.

As well as an in depth knowledge of the local area our team knows each and every one of our properties inside out.  Let us take the stress out of finding the right holiday home for you, call Amanda on 07816 281016 to discuss your requirements and we’ll find you the perfect holiday.

What Our Clients Say
Guest at Number Twenty Four
This was a very special year for myself and my husband and part of our celebrations was bringing together three generations for a family holiday – so we were looking for special accommodation and Number 24 did not disappoint. Thank you Amanda for your clear and helpful communication – we hope to holiday with Windbreaks and Wellies in the future
Guest at Sherkin
What a lovely big house. We loved our stay at Sherkin. Lovely position, very central to everything which made everything so simple. Beautiful wittering Beaches 100m. Pet friendly which was a bonus. We are going to miss our daily dog walks so most definitely going to book again. Amanda and Angela were brilliant looking after us. Thank you.
Guest at Beachcomber
This is the second time we have stayed in Beachcomber. It is a very specious and well equipped house and the location is excellent. The response to any queries or help is swift. It’s everything you need for a great family holiday.
Gillian Morrison, Property Owner
Amanda is such a pleasure to deal with. She is super efficient and nothing is too much bother. Whether its taking bookings, dealing with cleaners or other management aspects, Amanda is incredibly quick to get onto things and never lets anything drop. Always on. And always with a smile!
Guest at Pebbles West Wittering
We stayed at Pebbles in West Wittering with our 18-month-old and it might be the best staycation we’ve ever done. We will 100% be returning. We’ve never stayed anywhere this well equipped - it has everything you need and definitely feels like a home from home. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated, super clean and the kitchen has anything you could need from a dishwasher to cling film to coffee machine. Our son was entertained the whole time with the toys provided inside and outside, which made our stay that bit easier for us and more special for him. The location is brilliant, with an easy flat walk to the beach and close to the little shops. We can’t believe we’ve never actually visited West Wittering before - the beach is amazing! Now we have somewhere we love to stay, we’ll certainly be back here!
Guest at Sunny View
Perfect place for our holiday. Absolutely loved the decor, location, facilities and all the small touches. Would definitely book again.
