Number 8 Coastguard Cottages is an idyllic Grade 2 listed 3 bedroom cottage situated within 10 minutes walking distance of West Wittering beach, one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Southern England. Built in 1834 the cottage combines traditional aesthetic charm with exceptional comfort and practicality.

8 Coastguard Cottages is in West Wittering, one of the last surviving stretches of natural coastline in Britain and internationally important for bird watching. In addition to the languid maritime beauty of West Wittering’s beach, its appeal lies in world class water-sports; including sailing, windsurfing and deep sea fishing, as well as a wide variety of beautiful walks and bike rides on the surrounding coastline.


The cottage is approached through a wooden gate from Snowhill Lane. The south facing garden leads onto a sunny terrace and eating area providing guests with a perfect backdrop to enjoy the spectacular evening sunsets during summer months.

The ground floor is open plan and comprises a cosy living area dominated by an open fireplace with an eating area at one end. This leads through into a well appointed kitchen. The bathroom and toilet are also on the ground floor.
