1. Coast, country and city - Chichester really does have it all!
As locals, we tend to take for granted the beautiful area we live in. It is not until we go to other parts of the country when we can fully appreciate all that the Chichester area has to offer.
From the cobbled streets of Chichester’s city centre, with its grand cathedral and beautiful gardens, to the Roman Palace in Fishbourne, West Wittering’s sandy beach and the stunning South Downs (we could keep going!).
You could say that this area seems to have it all. The perfect place for a staycation in the UK, and therefore the perfect place to short-let your holiday cottage.
2. Great location with transport links to the Capital
Chichester is only 90 miles from London and only an hour from Gatwick Airport, meaning it is a fabulous destination for both weekend and short mid-week breaks as well as the longer holidays. From larger homes in the country, to smaller pied-a-terre flats in the Chichester town centre, your property could provide a perfect home-from-home for the holidaymaker and traveller.
3. Great Events
Not only are there numerous local events throughout the year, from the Chilli Festival at West Dean Gardens, the renowned productions at Chichester Festival Theatre and Countryside fayres at the Weald & Downland Living Museum, there is also Goodwood which is world famous for its amazing motor and horse-racing events. Don your favourite dress and hat for Ladies’ Day or step back in time in your vintage attire at the Goodwood Revival motor racing event. The draw from Goodwood has definitely put Sussex on the map!
4. Your ideal holiday home can fund itself
The area is a huge draw for second home owners, but don’t leave yours empty in between your visits. With high property prices in the area, you could be making a good return from letting it out with a holiday let management company such as Pass The Keys. With a full management service, we list it for you and manage the day to day operations such as cleaning, linen and maintenance.
