Chidham Cottages

All property types available in this rustic West Sussex getaway location

The rural village of Chidham is one of West Sussex’s best-kept secrets. With just a few houses, a pub, and a church, this exclusive location is sought-after for its peace and quiet, as well as the excellent access it provides to local attractions and activities. 

Despite its relative remote nature, we’ve managed to secure several accommodation options in Chidham and the surrounding areas. From large barn conversions to small cottages, we can cater to your needs regardless of whether you are a couple or a larger travelling group. 

However, before we tell you more about what we can offer in terms of Chidham accommodation, let’s delve into what this area has to offer and explain why you might want to consider making Chidham a base for your West Sussex holiday.  

Things to Do in Chidham 

In case you’re unfamiliar, Chidham is situated on a peninsula flanked by the Nutbourne Channel, Thorney Channel, Chidham Creek, and Cutmill Creek, to name a few. Given these surroundings, Chidham is one of the best places to enjoy coastal walks. There are plenty of paths for you to choose from, and you can even make your way along the famous Chidham Walkaway, which extends into the water itself. 

If you’re looking for something to get the adrenaline pumping, Chidham boasts the Cobnor Activities Centre Trust that offers activities such as sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and powerboating for young people and adults. 

There are also plenty of places to eat, drink, and explore in the nearby villages of Nutbourne and Hambrook. 

Chidham as a Holiday Gateway to West Sussex

While Chidham in itself might be rural and quiet, there’s plenty happening on its doorstep. For example, just across the water is the charming village of Bosham, which is well worth a visit. 

Not only does it possess the oldest church in the whole of West Sussex, but strolling along its natural harbour and having a few drinks while you watch the boats sail by is a must!

Beyond Bosham, the gorgeous Chichester Harbour (a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is a short drive (or boat ride) away, as is West Wittering Beach and East Head.  

Chidham also serves as an excellent base for the cathedral city of Chichester, which houses a range of historical, scientific, and military museums, art galleries, and other cultural hotspots such as the Chichester Festival Theatre. There’s something for everyone! 

Last but by no means least, Chidham is also close to Goodwood, which hosts all kinds of events throughout the year. From horse racing to the Festival of Speed and outdoor cinema screenings, Goodwood may well form the focus of your stay.
