South Downs holiday cottages

Stretching for 87 miles from Winchester to Eastbourne, the gorgeous South Downs area offers an idyllic place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. With an abundance of hills, valleys and walks within the South Downs National Park to explore year-round, this glorious area of the English countryside is a lovely place to get back into nature and spend some time wildlife watching, from rare butterflies to otters and skylarks.Read more

Walk along some of the South Downs Way, head to Seaford to discover the striking Seven Sisters chalk cliffs and Beachy Head to see the highest chalk cliff in Britain. As an International Dark Sky Reserve, stargazing is a must. Wrap up warm, bring a blanket and admire the sparkling night sky.

With several vineyards to choose from, a wine tour and tasting makes for a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. And if you're looking to discover a slice of history, pay a visit to Arundel Castle, Jane Austen's House museum and Virginia Woolf's 16th century cottage, Monk House. There's certainly plenty to do on your South Downs holiday...

Further afield, venture to the many gorgeous East Sussex towns and villages, including Lewes, Rye, Mayfield and Battle.
