Bosham Hoe is a private waterside estate set in approx 250 acres of oak woods, fields and foreshore on a small peninsula within Chichester Harbour, bordered on the south by Itchenor Reach, on the west and north by Furzefield Creek and to the east by open farmland. It is owned and managed by its residents and benefits from protection from further new development. It lies within the Chichester Harbour amenity area which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoys access to the harbour via the estate's private slipway jetty and includes the use of a dinghy park.

The harbourside village of Bosham, is about a mile away with a Saxon church, sailing club, primary school, public houses and cafes. The nearby cathedral city of Chichester offers a range of shopping and leisure amenities and the renowned Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery. In addition to sailing, leisure pursuits in the area include horseracing at Goodwood, which also hosts the Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival.

West Wittering beach caters for bathing and wind/kite surfing. Walking and riding can be enjoyed on the South Downs National Park, around Chichester Harbour and the coast. There is an excellent range of schools including Westbourne House and Oakwood Preparatory Schools along with Portsmouth Grammar, Churchers College and Bedales.
