The local area is packed with great places to visit. Whether it’s a walk that takes your fancy, the stunning South Downs is right on the doorstep, make sure you stop off at Devil’s Dyke where you can see paragliders soaring over head. Or maybe a bit of history is your thing, the spectacular Royal Pavilion that was the seaside home of George IV with its storybook turrets and sumptuous interiors.
For a breath of sea air, stroll along the bustling Brighton beach promenade and soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere at one of the many cafes and bars. If a spot of retail therapy is needed Brighton has a whole host of quirky and individual shops, as well as all the best High Street names.
Visit one of the great gardens of Sussex Borde Hill, where rare trees and shrubs inspire with colour and interest from spring to autumn. If Golf is more your thing we have two very good local courses nearby. For wine connoisseurs, Bookers vineyard at Bolney wine estate offers tours and tasting all year round. Glyndebourne, the Bluebell Railway, Hickstead, the South of England Showground and Goodwood are just a few additional reasons to visit Sussex however if it’s simply a bit of good food and drink you’re after, there are many great gastro pubs and restaurants to try.
