What Selsey Is All About

Selsey is a thriving village with a population of about 12,000 residents and is home to one of the last remaining fishing fleets on the south coast.

It is widely accepted that Selsey has some of the best seafood in the world and local pubs and restaurants are happy to promote their local suppliers.

Being rich in wildlife makes it a popular place for photographers looking to take snaps of rare birds and sea life such as seals.

Landscape & Geography

Selsey is a historic seaside town located at the southernmost point of West Sussex and shares the Manhood Peninsular with The Wittering’s, famed for its extensive sandy beaches and dunes.

It is most famous for its crab fishery and like many Sussex towns has a history for smuggling, especially around the East Beach area.

The town centre is mainly comprised of old Georgian houses and most notably Sessions House, a medieval building used as a court by the lord of Selsey Manor.


Selsey has three beaches including East Beach, The Bill and West Beach.

The east beach is a shelved shingle beach and is also known as the fisherman’s beach and home to the lifeboat station.

The Bill is the best sand castle beach (and is approx. 5 min walk from Beach House along the coastal path).

West Beach is the more obviously tidal beach. At high tide the water literally laps up to the edge of the Beach House sun deck/boundary.

Places of Interest

Selsey Lifeboat Station and Museum is one of the most notable places of interest and is located on the east beach.

Pagham Harbour is a magnificent and tranquil nature reserve and is one of the few undeveloped stretches of the Sussex coast.

Another local landmark is Selsey Windmill, a restored 19th-century mill of red brick, which operated from 1820 to the 1920s.

Travel Links

The Railway Station in Central Chichester has a direct line to London Gatwick and London Victoria, (around 1hr 40 mins) and runs coast bound also East and West.

The bus station is directly opposite the railway station, with buses running every 15 minutes to Selsey at peak times.

Ferries run from Portsmouth and Southampton for both car and foot passengers to The Isle of Wight.
Had a lovely weekend celebrating a relative's 85th! The house did just the job for our family gathering and the younger kids really loved having the games room to hang out in.

I stayed here for a long weekend with some friends, and it was definitely one to remember! The property feels like it hugs you as you walk through the front door with its cosy feel.
