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.

"We rented Densford for a week over the Christmas break. The cottage is well located, pretty and warm. However, the lounge area is incredibly dark only being lit by 2 low table lamps with no side tables for drinks which could very easily have been spilt on the floor. We had to bring down a bedside lamp and table which improved matters a little but still did not give adequate lighting to read comfortably. Likewise, the morning room area isvery dark and we had to move the kitchen table lamp onto the table just to be able to have a comfortable meal. For a winter stay, lighting is relevant and this could easily have been rectified by free standing uplighters and stronger bulbs. There is absolutely no cupboard space in the kitchen for dry storage so for our stay we had to move china and dishes from the only top cupboard so tins, packets etc could be put away. There is china provided but only 2 mugs and an assortment of smaller cups. All of the above caused us a good deal of frustration and inconvenience. One further point is that there is no hanging space in the 2nd bedroom so if both rooms are being used, hanging clothes all have to be kept in the main bedroom. I would also emphasise the steep stairs which I accept have been stated in the particulars. However, for safety you do need both hands free when using them and I would worry about children using them as a fall would not be broken. I completely understand thelimitations in staying in a traditional cottage but many of the above could be resolved inexpensively."

"The Cottage felt very homely and warm. Everything we needed was supplied to make it a very comfortable stay. Making lovely warm fires in the evening was a real treat and the cottage was well placed for the local small supermarket and pubs. The children loved the summer house where they could play pool and darts which was a welcome diversion for them and us! It was lovely to be able to take our Westie away with us, however owners of small dogs beware, as the garden whilst totally enclosed was not fully escape proof for mischievous little dogs! The walks up to Tennyson Down from the cottage were super and the views unsurpassed. Would recommend the west coast as the coastal walks and fossil hunting were great fun.All in a all a great Easter week spent on the Island, with Freshwater proving to be a great base and the cottage being a home from home after a day's walking and exploring"

"The cottage was certainly up to usual Snaptrip standards. If anything, the property was 'under-sold' in the sense that the garden was much nicer than we were led to believe, having an excellent outlook at the rear and lovely seating areas with enough privacy despite being semi-detached. Proximity to Amberley Castle is also a treat: being able to walk there and back from a fine-dining restaurant on a fine summer's evening was a memorable experience. Perhaps that could also be emphasised (for those who enjoy top-nosh).The only reason for not giving 5 stars was an unfortunate flood we suffered due to a drain blockage. The owner was initially difficult to contact but soon put things right and gave us a nice consolatory gift."

"S81272 is a clean, modern, well equipped house which is open plan downstairs.We were a family group of 6 adults, 2 children and a one year old. There was plenty of room for all of us. Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and of a good standardThe weather was not great but there was plenty to do for the children in and around Winchester. We visited Marwell Zoo, Manor Farm ( Peter Rabbit Trail was a hit with the children) Winchester Cathedral, Winchester Science Museum and we went bowling on a particularly wet day.The hot tub was a favourite with everyone.We had a lovely time altogether and this house is perfect for family/ friendship groups wanting to spend quality time together."
