West Sussex estate agents reveal best coastal locations

We all love a 'best of' or 'top 10' and Winkworth West Sussex estate agents are no exception to the rule. When the Daily Telegraph online published its list of Britain's top 20 coastal towns, Winkworth was sure that at least one West Sussex areas would be included. A quick peruse did indeed reveal that one of our coastal towns made the cut, with The Witterings charting at number nine. Its Blue Flag beach, gastro pubs and relative close proximity to London mean properties for sale in this coastal village don't stay on the market for long. It was selfish of us to expect more than one West Sussex coastal town to be included in the top 20, especially when you consider Britain is an island with miles of coastline up and down the county. However, with property for sale in West Sussex in demand from both locals and those from outside of the county, Winkworth thought it would be fun to share our own Top 10 Best West Sussex coastal locations. Shoreham-by-Sea - located at the mouth of the River Adur and with the South Downs as a stunning backdrop, Shoreham-by-Sea has become something of a desirable location. Some of the most magnificent houses for sale in Shoreham are along Old Fort Road. Worthing - as one of the south coast's biggest seaside towns, Worthing is packed full of the attractions and amenities you would expect from a coastal resort. Seafront homes remain popular - check out the whitewashed dwellings on Marine Parade. Littlehampton - undergoing something of a renaissance thanks to investment and redevelopment, Littlehampton is becoming a lively West Sussex spot with an emerging arts scene. Top tip: locals prefer the quieter West Beach. Brighton - known as London-by-the-sea, Brighton is the closest thing you'll get to cosmopolitan, urban living in a coastal location. Superb retail and leisure amenities are complemented by a pebble beach and pier. Ferring - those hankering after a quiet beach location should look no further than Ferring. This stretch of coastline just beyond the Goring end of Worthing is popular with dog walkers, although an early morning visit may be rewarded with a glimpse of horse riders. Bognor Regis - London MP and property developer, Sir Richard Hotham decided that Bognor Regis would make a smart seaside town and started development in the late 18th century. The shingle beach and leisure facilities make Bognor an attractive location for families. Selsey - a great spot to watch the fishermen at work and try the renowned Selsey crab. Selsey Bill and Bracklesham Bay are two of the best coastal spots but don't forget to visit Selsey Windmill. Pagham - divided into four main areas, which include Pagham Beach, the original 13th century Pagham village, Pagham Harbour and Nyetimber, Pagham has something to offer everyone. A great place for bungalow properties. Aldwick - the Aldwick Bay Estate is easily the most desirable part of the town - a private marine estate with tree-lines avenues, houses of architectural interest and its own private beach that has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Clymping - together with the coastal hamlet of Atherington, Clymping (also known as Climping) is home to some of the most charming houses for sale in West Sussex. The Climping sand dunes - another designated Site of Special Scientific Interest - are worth a visit.
