Bosham

Bosham is a picturesque harbour village and is rich in history.  The ancient church was featured in the Bayeaux Tapestry, the Romans used it as a port and King Canute ordered the tide not to come in from his palace here.  Do be careful of those tides, they definitely do come in over the road next to the harbour.  The excellent local pub, the Anchor Bleu has some entertaining photos on its walls of cars three feet deep in water.  Not funny if it is your car though, so be warned.

There are some good gift shops, particularly in Bosham Walk where you can buy a wide range of excellent locally made artwork and crafts.  The Breeze Café is a great place to stop for a coffee and one of their many delicious homemade cakes.

A little further down the road you can explore the roman findings at Fishbourne Roman Palace.  Its well worth a visit.

Bosham Sailing Club has an active and vibrant sailing community.  Whether you are a proficient sailor or a beginner you can join a sailing course here throughout the year.

Alternatively, you could just while the day away feeding the ducks on the millstream by the church or swinging on the rope swing.  If you have some bacon and a long length of string try your hand at crabbing.  Dell Quay nearby is the best spot for this and you can stop off for lunch at the Crown & Anchor at the same time.  Take your paddle board or canoe and enjoy a potter on the estuary.  Its lovely in the evening on a balmy summer’s night.

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 Manderley
Lovely house, lovely location. Planning to return next year. Thank you Amanda from Wellies and Windbreaks for being so accessible and helpful

Wellies & Windbreaks has been managing our two rental properties for a couple of years now and we have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Amanda. Lettings have been good and whenever there is an issue at either house, Amanda is quick to remedy it in a professional and efficient manner

Guest at Number Six
We had a wonderful stay here. Four adults and one baby. The house was excellent, and everything that you needed was provided. It is in a great location within walking distance of the sea at Bosham. A very good pub, cafe and craft centre can be found there. At the end of the road is a hotel with an excellent restaurant. The agent Amanda went above and beyond. Anything you needed was sorted out immediately. I would not hesitate to recommend this property
