Overlooking picturesque Cuckmere Haven, this traditional inn has oodles of space, a dining room and lovely outside area for al fresco dining. A convenient place for walkers to take a break, dogs are welcome in the bar area.
This pebbly beach sits at the mouth of the river Cuckmere, in between Eastbourne and Seaford, and is a popular spot for anglers. With fabulous views of the white chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters, this quiet beach is great for dog walkers.

Wonderful views at Cuckmere Haven
We visited Cuckmere Haven and the views were stunning. The beach itself is pebbly but there is so much history connected to this wonderful area that it is well worth a visit. One of my favourite places to be.
A gorgeous area of chalk cliffs, meandering river valley and grassland, inhabited by sheep and a vast number of migrating birds. A variety of walks will take you from the visitor centre, from a quick 30 minute stroll to the beach, to a more demanding hike to Beachy Head. Whatever time of year you visit, this is a great place to explore on foot.
Surrounded by the Wealden South Downs, this picturesque village has a famous church, the National Trust owned clergy house and a great selection of galleries, cafes and shops.

Quintessential English Village

Poco - Italian restaurant
Being extremely dog friendly

The local shop with a lovely deli at the rear
Found next to the grand church in Alftriston, The Clergy House was the National Trusts first ever property. Built in the early 15th century this Wealden hall-house sits amidst rolling countryside and overlooks the Cuckmere river. The cottage garden and orchard are a delight.
Lovely old National Trust House
We visited The Clergy House and had a truly enjoyable experience. We took the guided tour on offer in the garden and the lady was very interesting and informative as was the guide inside the house. This made all the difference as we learnt so much. Such a lovely place to visit.
Centrally located on the high street, this traditional pub offers hearty food, warming log fires and real ales. Everyone is welcome here, including your four legged friends.
Delightful old country pub
We ate at The George Inn on several occasions and each time the food was delicious. The pub itself is cosy with a lovely ambience and the staff friendly and welcoming. Definitely one of our favourite places to eat.
A traditional shop in the centre of the village. There's a delicatessen offering cheese and meats alongside baked goods and local produce including wine.
Lovely well stocked village store
This little village store was delightful. It had so many items on sale and the deli was superb. We bought items from there several times which we ate in the garden in the evening with a bottle of wine.
Friston Forest is a beech woodland situated in the South Downs National Park. With walking and cycling trails, horse riding trails and a picnic area, this is a great place to spend the day.
Here you'll find a fabulous selection of home produce, all grown in the surrounding fields. Friendly staff are on hand to help you.
