The UK has seen a sustained surge in demand for ‘staycations’ with many consumers now opting to holiday in high-quality accommodation in some of the country’s most scenic locations. Currently, there is a limited supply of facilities of this kind within Chichester district.
Delivered as part of a sensitively planned, landscape-led scheme, Foxbridge will address this existing shortfall through the delivery of bespoke holiday lodges available for rent or purchase, together with a new spa accommodation, farm shop, health café, restaurant, clubhouse and gardens. With excellent transport links to towns across the South East and London, the site is well-located for a facility of this kind.
The site is also ideally located to act as a stepping off point for visitors to enjoy everything the region has to offer, including restaurants, vineyards and other visitor attractions. We estimate that the scheme will generate more than £12 million in visitor spending each year, while also sustaining around 75 full time jobs across a range of skill levels.
