Selsey

The historic fishing town of Selsey lies eight miles south of Chichester on the southernmost tip of the Manhood Peninsula. Famed for its Selsey Crab which is lauded across the globe as one of the very best, the town has a proud fishing heritage, and there is still a strong cultural connection to the sea, with a fishing fleet moored offshore, still bringing in the catch.  Whether you are staying or just visiting for the day a stroll along the beach to Potters Fish is a must.  This award winning fisherman’s hut specialises in locally and sustainably caught crab and lobster which you can buy fresh to take home or enjoy right there and then on the beach.

The town is well served for amenities and restaurants. There are a number of independent food shops including three good butchers and a few bakeries.  There are a couple of Co-Ops for general groceries and for a larger shop there is an Asda Supermarket as you enter the village of Selsey.   The village is well served for coffee shops and one of our favourites is Kind Coffee. We also love Waves for a really good breakfast and Lal  a Turkish and me cocktail bar for a great atmosphere  and excellent home made food. Finally, if you are holidaying to celebrate a special occasion there is the Crab & Lobster in Pagham Harbour.

Selsey’s miles of natural beaches play host to a huge variety of wildlife both on and off the shore, and the RSPB reserves of Pagham Harbour and RSPB Medmerry are home to countless species of birds and wildfowl. In warmer months, visitors may even glimpse the seals from which Selsey’s name originates whilst strolling along the Selsey Seal Art Trail.

With more sunlight hours than anywhere in the UK, and bathing water rated as excellent, Selsey is a great spot for a day in the sunshine. Explore the rugged landscape on foot or on bicycle. Enjoy a fabulous Selsey sunset and admire the impressive dark skies made famous by the late Sir Patrick Moore who lived in the town. Other notable Selsey residents and events can be sought out on one of the town’s Blue Plaque Heritage walks.

Many of the town’s fishing fleet crew the Selsey Lifeboats, which have been a feature of the town since 1861. The lifeboat station can be found on the shore at Kingsway and is open for visitors.

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.
