You and your family may choose to have a splash in our pool or curl up by the fire with a good book but if you prefer to get out and about, here's some ideas..

City of Chichester

Countryside meets coastline, with plenty to do for the whole family

Chichester is a historical city nestled at the foot of the Southdowns and with its 12th century cathedral makes it the only city in West Sussex. Surrounded by some of the finest sandy beaches on the south coast, West Wittering beach is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, along with the tranquil fishing villages of Bosham and Emsworth, only a short drive away.

This is a great place to visit for the whole family, combing theatre and arts, cinemas, trampolining parks, historical walks and canal boat rides, all topped off with great restaurants and high street shopping.

The Weald and Downland Living Museum

Discover 950 years of English rural life

Suitable for all ages, the Weald and Downland Living Museum is set in a 40-acre site with traditional rural buildings, rescued from destruction, dating back to 13th century. Set in a beautiful landscape, stories are told of women, men and children who lived and worked here over 1,000 years ago, with lots to explore including gardens, farm animals, walks and a lake.

Children's activities are held here during the school holidays as well as a regular programme of domestic and craft demonstrations. Take a walk in the woods with the dog, visit the waterside café or simply enjoy your own picnic.
