Find cottages in SelseyVisit Selsey

The seaside town of Selsey is set on the southernmost part of the Manhood Peninsula in Sussex; and at one time it was inaccessible at floodtide except by boat!

Today, it's a popular holiday spot for families and couples looking to explore the stunning Sussex coastline. You're just 8 miles from Chichester, and a day trip here makes for a great family day out. Why not hop on board a Chichester Harbour Water Tour where you'll get the opportunity to spot seabirds as well as other marine wildlife, and the kids will love it.

Selsey is home to one of West Sussex's best beaches and a day spent here will be filled with fun. The beaches stretch for miles and a short walk will take you to Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve.

During the summer months, Selsey is a hive of activity as families arrive for beach holidays, but a stay here is relaxing at any time of year. Outdoor enthusiasts can head for the walking and cycling trails of the South Downs or explore the nearby villages of East and West Wittering and Earnley, whilst culture lovers will enjoy visiting Selsey Windmill or the Selsey Lifeboat Museum, where you can learn about the area's maritime history.

No visit to Selsey would be complete without tasting Selsey Crab, a local delicacy that you will find served fresh at pubs and restaurants in the town centre.

Start your search for holiday cottages in Selsey today and come explore the West Sussex coastline for yourself.
