Country Cottages in Sussex

Discover the South Downs and explore the High Weald and you'll find there is more to Sussex than its coast. The wealth of gorgeous rolling countryside awaits you.

The South Downs offers dramatic chalk cliffs, an undulating coastline and verdant rolling hills. Home to 90 miles of adventure and exploration; head along the South Downs Way, where you can discover hidden corners and expansive stretches of this genteel landscape by foot, bike or horseback!

Not just a National Park, but host to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty too. The South Downs treasures the jewel in its crown; High Weald, which offers its visitors a veritable feast of all things English countryside. Nestled between the North and South Downs it offers a magical array of hidden villages, forests and country parks; featuring a rich heritage, steam trains and landscaped gardens.

At its heart grows Ashdown Forest, once the hunting ground of Henry VIII and infamously known as the inspiration for Winnie-the-Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood. You can visit Winnie-the-Pooh village in Hartfield and try your hands at Pooh Sticks on Pooh’s very own bridge. Or for something altogether different, visit the Llama Park or venture to St. Leonards Forest for activities and a woodland wildlife safari.

Whatever your fancy, the Sussex countryside plays the perfect host for any adventurous holiday. Close enough to Brighton and its heritage coast for those wanting a little more energy, but quiet enough to give anyone seeking repose a true dose of calm. And all within easy reach London; perfect for a quick recharge.
