ESTATE AGENTS IN EMSWORTH
Situated to the east of Hampshire and nestled to the north of Chichester Harbour, Emsworth is a picturesque fishing village filled with Georgian houses, pretty walled gardens and a mill pond. Emsworth has long been a popular choice with sailing enthusiasts and artists, but more recently it’s become a haven for families and professionals who want to take advantage of the great transport links and connections with Portsmouth, Brighton and Chichester.
Find Your Place
From the varied architectural styles to the independent stores and antique stores, the town boasts a wonderful old-world charm and a relaxed ambience. Staff at Nexa Estate Agents in Emsworth recommend this area to families, in particular, who want to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and great attractions nearby.
The draw of Emsworth is its charming coastline, with nearby beaches and harbours, from the blue flag award-winning Hayling Island Beachlands or West Wittering beach which are both close by. Locals enjoy walking around the tidal mill ponds and through the Brook Meadow which is home to an abundance of native wildlife, or nearby Thorney Island. The South Downs are also within easy reach of this area for nature enthusiasts and those who enjoy hiking or cycling. There are several beautiful routes from Old Dairy Farm, in particular, that are perfect for keen walkers or cyclists.
Shopping and Entertainment
The town has a number of independent stores, from butchers and florists to delis and supermarkets. There is also a wealth of great pubs and bars, restaurants and cafés, many offering wonderful waterside views, such as 36 On The Quay or Fat Olives.
The town has two sailing clubs – Emsworth Sailing Club and Emsworth Slipper Sailing Club – both of which host a programme of social events during sailing season.
Festivals and Events
There is a great selection of options for days out and events throughout the year, both locally and in the nearby towns and cities. There is a real sense of community focus, which is evident in the various events it holds here, from the Arts Trail and Artists’ Show to the British Food Fortnight and the annual fair held by the Emsworth Horticultural Society each August.
The town has a number of charming landmarks, including St James’ Church, the Emsworth Museum and the Yacht Harbour which is enveloped by the Promenade offering views over Chichester Harbour. Just a couple of miles outside of the town, there’s Stansted Park which is home to beautiful forest walks.

Letting agents in Emsworth suggest that many people flock to here in order to benefit from the great balance of town, country and coastal life. While many of the old traditions of the town have long since passed, it’s still retained an appealing village feel. Property in this part of the country ranges from older buildings in the centre which span Georgian townhouses and 17th century fisherman’s cottages, to modern developments on the outskirts. Homes along Beach Road are particularly popular for their beautiful views from the water’s edge. North of the town, there is a great mix of modern family homes and mod-century properties studded with old farm cottages in the semi-rural hotspots.
