Perfectly placed for both the beaches and the glorious Sussex countryside, Church Lodge has a plentiful choice of activities for those guests who want to explore or enjoy exercise within the stunning Manhood Peninsular.

For keen cyclists, the “Salterns Way” cycle path passes right through the village linking West Wittering to Chichester.  Bicycles are available on a complementary basis to our Church Lodge guests.

Leisure facilities within the area include golf at Goodwood and Hunston, horse riding and walking around the harbour and on The Downs. Horseracing can also be enjoyed at Fontwell and Goodwood where, for the motoring enthusiasts, the annual Festival of Speed and Revival meetings are hosted.

With a range of excellent shopping, cultural and leisure facilities, including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants, the Cathedral city of Chichester is also well worth a visit.

For those who may want to enjoy the water, by sail or motor, the award-winning Chichester Marina is next door to Birdham, with over 1000 berths and a wide range of on shore and off shore activity.

Nicky, one of the owners, is a fully qualified Pilates instructor and would be delighted to help anyone who might be interested in a postural analysis with an individual exercise programme. She also runs local classes and would love you all to join in. Don’t forget to pack your tracksuit bottoms! Massages, from sports to Thai, are also available by prior arrangement from trained masseuses.
