We're lucky to have over 30 rural village shops in the Chichester District. From Camelsdale in the north, to West Wittering in the south; our village shops are among the best in the South East, and they have the awards to prove it.

Award-winning village shops

Our district is home to:

  • the best village shop in the South East (Compton's Village Shop & Tea Room);
  • the best corner shop in Britain (Kirdford Village Stores); and
  • the first award-winning, eco-friendly store in the UK (Lodsworth Larder).

That's why we've created this village shop directory. To help you to rediscover our rural village shops and the leafy walks and trails that can be found close-by.
