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.
Paul - verified booking
"The big plus about this cottage is the wonderful location, perched atop a cliff with lovely views to the south over the channel and to the west along the coast, where we saw some amazing sunsets.Large property with secure decked area to patio doors to front and beyond a secured mainly turfed garden. This was ideal for our 2 small dogs. Parking for 2 cars directly outside and property accessed by gravel road. Spacious lounge, adequate kitchen, decent size bedrooms and main bathroom. We didn't use the games room upstairs.The negatives were that when we arrive the place smelt of dogs, and although we have dogs, this smell was off putting. Soon had windows open and bought and used air fresheners which did the trick. Everywhere was clean, but the kitchen was dirty. Previous occupants had left a dirty greasy oven, dirty microwave, some cutlery marked and oven and work tops not clean. We had to spend a bit of time with soap and water to make it clean, which we shouldn't have to do.Otherwise a nice property in great location."

"The cottage was in a great location for what we wanted to do - seeing our son and family in Brighton etc (half-term). The underfloor heating in the bathroom was unexpected but very welcome. However, we did find that the heating system was either very hot or very cold - didn't seem to regulate at comfortable/medium. Only 4 plates and bowls, 1 tea towel and no serving dishes I thought was a little on the 'mean' side especially when trying to make a meal. ALSO, we had a masses of wasps which was quite worrying when our 4 year old grandson came to visit. Apparently, on speaking to the cleaner on the morning of departure the previous people had complained too but nothing seemed to have been done about them!! Advertised as having broadband but we couldn't pick up our e-mails etc which was quite frustrating as we were awaiting a couple of important ones."

"We had a delightful stay. The barn was full of character, very attractive and a fantastic and peaceful rural location. We enjoyed the cycle rides each morning before breakfast. There are some interesting National Trust properties to visit, the Bluebell Steam Railway and the historic town of Lewis. The South Downs are beautiful.We enjoyed Eastbourne, but would not recommend Brighton. The beds were comfortable. The only problem is the size of the seats of the sofas, we all felt the distance from front to back was too wide, therefore unless you had massively long thighs you ended up with a twingeing back. The family were kind and helpful, the huge chocolate cake left for us to enjoy was much appreciated.If we visit this area again we would definitely stay at S13943."

"S13905 provided an ideal location for exploring East Sussex as its proximity to main roads meant it was easy to access many attractions. The owners were welcoming and parking on the road wasn’t a problem as it is a no through road. The cottage is very compact and the twin room’s ceiling slopes significantly (ok for our young children but might be awkward for adults). Beds were solid but the mattresses quite soft and well used which combined with the heat and traffic noise made sleeping difficult. The garden was small and shady - but it did have a good seating and a bbq. As a family we would probably look for more space next time but would certainly consider a holiday in the same area."

"S14044 is an excellent location for dog owners, with a good-sized field literally on the doorstep. The cottage is small, and headroom in the mezzanine sleeping shelf is very limited, but it is very comfortable. Well equipped kitchen, but space is limited so some compromises have had to be made such as the microwave/conventional oven which seems to be an afterthought - but it works OK. The location was surprisingly quiet, yet has all you might need at Uckfield or Heathfield, and the local Blackboys Inn is very good and very popular (needed to book for the restaurant, even mid-week). Meals are also available in the bar, where dogs can come too."
