Climping - Local Events and Attractions



Bailiffscourt Hotel and Spa - A beautiful hotel and spa just along the lane from the cottage. It is usually possible to book treatments at the Spa as a non resident and they often have very good lunch offers available. For example, at the time of writing the site offers a voucher for 25% off your food bill at lunch. There is also a rather enticing offer for a Sunset evening at the spa which includes a glass of champage in the hot tub, use of the spa area, a choice of one of four treatments and a two course dinner in the tapestry restaurant for £89.....hmmm...may have to call some friends!


The Oystercatcher Pub - Only a short walk away you will find the Oyster Catcher serving a range of beers and wines, alongside a reasonably priced menu


Clymping Beach Cafe- At the bottom of the lane you will find that two of the pasture fields have been turned over to parking for the beach. In the field on the right hand side is the cafe serving snacks, soft drinks and hot meals.

West Beach Cafe - is at the mouth of the River Arun and you can walk along the beach from the cottage and reward yourself at the end of the walk with some wonderful fish and chips, or homemade fish cakes and a glass of wine with a wonderful South Coast view. The walk takes between 20-30 minutes.

Hobbs Garden Society- Still some allotment plots available.

Rustington Golf Course- just off the A259, this golf course has extremely reasonable visitor fees on its "nine holes with two tees" course. From the road it looks very open, however I played this course recently and was very pleasantly surprised. It is actually quite pretty and, given the level of planting and water features, looks like it could develop into a very interesting course in years to come. We met very friendly and happy members on the course and we were made to feel very welcome. Highly recommended for a holiday round at a sensible price.

Chichester Festival Theatre is set in a local park and has an international reputation for producing a wide range of theatrical productions. There is a restaurant within the theatre where it is possible to dine either before or after your play or show. We have spent pleasant evenings in the summer enjoying a spot of supper, whilst watching the cricketers in the park, before going into the theatre to see an excellent play performed by superb and often extremely well know actors.
