Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Pump Bottom Farm, as the name suggests, was once the location for the water pump for the locality. The farm sits in a pretty glade-like setting with tree-lined fields, wild flowers and a stunning drift of violets in the Spring. An area specifically designated as a wildlife habitat, captures the interest of visiting photographers and artists. Wildlife has been encouraged throughout the farm with bird boxes and safe habitats. The farm has a long road frontage with three separate entrances off the main road.

Worthy of mention is the renowned "Blues on the Farm" annual event which has been run on the site of Pump Bottom Farm, we understand, for about 25 years and was voted Best British Blues Festival 2010 in the British Blues Awards. In 2016 the Festival ran from 16-19 June.

Well located in the hamlet of Apuldram, which means Apple Tree village, on the main coastal route just south of the Cathedral city of Chichester. It occupies a unique and busy trading location with a long road frontage between the turning to the moorings at Dell Quay and the Chichester Marina. 34 miles from Southampton Airport, 19 miles from the Portsmouth ferry terminal, Heathrow Airport 72 miles and Gatwick Airport 53 miles.

The popular and beautiful beaches of West Wittering and East Head are on the direct route past the farm and five miles away and the family-orientated Selsey Bill, famous for its crabs and lobsters only seven miles to the south.
