Great food, in a wonderful setting

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.

Nearby walk

Park in The Dene car park on West Street on the outskirts of the village and follow the signs to the river Cuckmere where you'll find the bridge and start of the walk along the river bank. It's a one and a quarter hour stroll following waymarks to Litlington bridge and you then return on the other bank. A lovely meader through the pretty countryside of the Sussex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

One of over fifty hill figures in the UK, The Long Man is the largest in the country at 226 feet tall and can be seen for miles around. Situated on the steep slopes of Windover Hill, a visit here is a must!

Long Man Inn is an Edwardian public house situated in the pretty village of Willmington. In close proximity to the South Downs Way National Trail, this is a great place for walkers and cyclists to find refreshments. Dogs are welcome.
