Holiday Cottages In The South Downs To Rent - Save up to 60%

The South Downs is the UK's newest National Park, it stretches from Winchester in the West to Eastbourne in the East and offers over 600 square miles of pristine English countryside. It is paradise for hikers, mountain bikers, road cyclists and anyone who loves a countryside stroll.

From the South Downs National Park, it is easy to explore cosmopolitan Brighton and the county towns of Winchester, Lewes and Chichester. There are family-friendly activities galore and more picnic spots than you can shake a stick at. We love the little village of Ditchling with its two pretty churches, an award-winning museum and delightful tearooms. Further west, Arundel is packed with cute little antique shops and places to grab lunch. Those of you who like hiking and a challenge can walk the length of the park on the South Downs Way, it covers 100 miles of some of the England's finest countryside.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In The South Downs To Rent.

- Mrs Jalland, September 2018 - verified booking

"Found some in the wardrobe in the GF bedroom and in a storgae box underneath another bed. Could not find any towels so had to improvise and use our own towels we had brought for the beach. There was no cot mattress! we had brought our own cot bed linen but not a mattress so again ahd to improvise. If we had known we could of brought a cot mattress from home. The GF bedroom ensuite, the seat within the shower was not very clean. On inspection the FF front bedroom's ensuite shower cubicle was not clean. Serious Mould covering the grouted areas and the plug hole was blocked with masses of hair, hence it not draining properly - pictures have been taken - and the shower tray was dirty. The FF back bedroom ensuite, the bath plug hole was full of hair and did not drain so we had to clear this out before using the shower/ bath. The FF middle bedroom ensuite, the shower door did not close properly - it had come off its runners - so we had to sort this out. Some of the actual quilts were quite stained and the sofa bed needed hoovering before making in to a bed. The kitchen floor was not very clean and the tiles above the cooker were thick with grease. Some of the plates had not been cleaned properly, looked like they had been stacked up straight after use without being wiped or washed. The house could do with a good clean from top to bottom. Apart from this, the situation of the house and the house itself were spot on. Great location to all amenities and what was provided in the house ie all the utensils, games and decor and outside space were fab."

"The barn was clean and tidy however we found it to be extremely cold. Having never used a log burning stove before we ran out of fire lighters on the 1st morning and the heating unit did not work. After speaking to the housekeeper (a number of hours after we tried to make contact) we were told where we could find more firelighters (not sure why we were only left with half a packet to use in the first place). They were outside in the cleaners storage barn however by this time we had just been using the bedroom that evening. The log burner was nice however it did not warm the entire barn and the heating did not work at all. When asked how to use the heating/air con unit the housekeep was unable to tell us so we were left cold. We were both actually quite disappointed. When speaking to the housekeeper she seemed shocked we had used the half pack of firelighters, I would suggest providing instructions of how many you would assume we needed to use and possibly instructions on how to get the heating unit to work. Lovely barn but we were glad to get back home. Not good value for money at all."

Nicola - verified booking

"We were 26 people who stayed in this wonderful house. Where to begin: the living room and dining area are amazing. The photos on the internet almost Don't do the living room's size and seating justice. A really great area to fit everyone as was the dining area. The kitchen was great, had everything we needed loads of fridges, plates, glasses, dishwasher etc; a really nice touch that cleaning equipment included bin liners were provided...lots of houses don't provide this. There were loads of bathrooms which meant no one was waiting to use them. The location is fantastic, a short walk to the seafront or to the lanes/shopping. The contact with the owner and the company was excellent- we were always well informed of everything. If I needed a house with that many people again I would definitely book again!"

Mr Mcneil - verified booking

"The accommodation was not in any way suitable for small children and even though your website says it was in the owners manual it states that it is not suitable! This house was tired and not very clean, the dishes were dirty and on inspection the dishwasher needed a major cleanup before it could wash dishes. This was due to all the holes in the arms being blocked with old food. I thought that as a company you did try to help with the issue over a stairgate and we appreciated that because without the stairgate we could not have stayed here. It was a lovely big property, but the maintenance and cleanliness let it down."
