From East Sussex to Hampshire
The South Downs gained its National Park status in 2011, giving its cultural heritage and outstanding natural beauty the recognition it deserves. The South Downs National Park stretches from Hampshire, through West Sussex and into East Sussex incorporating over 1,600 square km.
Its superb downland walking and far reaching view of the English channel and the Sussex weald, make it one of England’s best known and loved areas. The chalk grassland not only supports a variety of flora and wildlife but makes underfoot conditions excellent through all seasons.
The Only Village on the South Downs Way
Alfriston, situated on the banks of the Cuckmere river and just under a 3 mile stroll from the coast, is undoubtedly one of the prettiest villages in the South Downs. With its Tudor beamed buildings, 14th century National Trust Clergy House and range of quaint little shops, it does not fail to match its beautiful surroundings. The best English village – Telegraph
