West Wittering Estate is situated on the West Sussex coast approximately 8 miles south of Chichester and therefore within easy reach of London.
We are primarily a conservation company which owns a magnificent stretch of sandy beach backed by an area of undeveloped grassland. This is bordered by saltmarsh and areas of reeds and the whole has spectacular views to the South Downs to the north and the Solent to the south. To the west the estate adjoins The National Trust’s East Head with its sand dunes and marram grass. We are proud that we have maintained the natural beauty of the area for 50 years.
At low tide, when a ¼ of a mile of sand is exposed, a shallow lagoon of calm water forms across the beach. Sandbanks and tidal pools are a feature, as are the beach huts which stand against the tamarisk hedges.
This area is well known for its soft light and it is equally spectacular during a peaceful sunset or with rough seas during a storm. click here for images
Many film location companies have already discovered the benefits of using this area for both filming and stills shoots and the company is able to offer support in several ways. There is ample parking and toilet facilities and in addition we are able to supply overnight storage and security. We also have suitable vehicles for moving equipment to and from the beach and are willing to discuss how we might help in other ways.
