Holiday Cottages In The South Downs To Rent

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.

Fiona - verified booking

"This is the second time staying at Prideaux ( with one teenage son) and the cleanliness and amenities were second to none. There is now a second toilet within the flat which was very handy. The owner is very accommodating and is on hand should you need anything. There are lots to see and do within the area and you can get to almost anything by bus or train. Once again the weather was excellent. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay but be within a busy town then Eastbourne is ideal for that. There are lots of different restaurants in town and loads of bars. Going to London is a breeze on the train and is inexpensive if off peak. Hastings and Brighton are just a short trip by train. Although we drove there we parked the car (off street) and only used it twice in a fortnight. The bandstand is a must too with a variety of brass band and tribute acts. All in all a very enjoyable holiday."

J - verified booking

"Good accommodation. Host onsite, very approachable and friendly, no issues. Easy, relaxed and helpful when we had a breakage. Very clean and tidy with everything you would want available. Slightly dated decor in some areas, but comfortable rooms and did not detract from overall experience so don't let it put you off as it is more friendly than a modern place. Lounge very comfortable, with thoughtfully provided books and some puzzles which was a lovely touch. Enjoyed the DVD player, wifi slow but functional. I found the bed too firm for my liking, but this is a personal preference.Location is good - pizza place and Waitrose just up the road, short walk to town and on to the pier. Onsite parking."

Miranda - verified booking

"We booked S91052 as a last minute weekend getaway and we weren't disappointed. The apartment is absolutely perfect, beautifully decorated, spacious, well equipped with high quality fixtures and fittings and extremely comfortable. The location is stunning. We sat on the balcony with a glass of wine and watched the boats enter and leave the harbour through the locks. Thoroughly relaxing. The attention to detail was superb and we really felt that the owners furnished it to ensure you had the best experience. Restaurants are a 5 minute gentle stroll away. Secure parking was also a bonus. We will definitely be back for a longer stay."

Michael - verified booking

"The cottage has all of the necessary appliances but not Wi-fi. It is dated and hence no pictures of the kitchen or bathroom. On arrival most of the mugs and a salad bowl we’re dirty and there is no welcome pack. (Not essential but welcoming.) The pub is friendly, popular and serves good basic food and is over a mile away down the private drive and A29. The gated private drive is also the simplest entrance to the property avoiding the narrow lanes and dirt tracks of Madehurst. Well situated for lots of things to do."

Hilda - verified booking

"A much appreciated 'Welcome package 'on our arrival at this quirky cottage. Furnishings, equipment and cleanliness very good. The low doorways were certainly a challenge with many banged heads before we learnt to DUCK. The garden was a bit disappointing with no direct access from the cottage. You have to go out the front door, walk along the road several paces and then enter the garden by a side gate. The road was quiet with little traffic but it was still a bit of a worry along the narrow country lane"
