Sussex

Home to the most beautiful coast and countryside; Sussex is the perfect holiday escape whether you want a relaxing short break or action-packed adventure.

Walkers and cyclists will enjoy Sussex. This is great walking country or you could grab a bike and take to the network of quiet country roads. A boat trip is another great way to enjoy the scenery from a different aspect, take a leisurely cruise from Eastbourne to the lighthouse and discover a tranquil place to breathe.

You''ll find holiday cottages located within easy reach of all the region''s well known attractions and beauty spots both inland and at the coast and there''s an abundance of Blue Flag awarded beaches scattered along the coast. For a really atmospheric look at the coastline head to Beachy Head with its dramatic chalk cliffs, and make the time to stroll through one of the picturesque fishing harbours dotted around to pick up unique souvenirs and fresh seafood.

Places of interest of course include the vibrant coastal towns of Brighton, with its famous pier, Eastbourne and Bognor Regis as well as the delightful spa town of Tunbridge Wells (actually just over the Kent border) and lovely market towns like Horsham and historic Lewes.

If there''s one thing you can''t escape in Sussex, its history and the famous battle site of 1066 in Hastings holds a wealth of it, and offers a family friendly day out to explore one of history''s most important events. Similarly Arundel Castle could also be on your agenda; it sits majestically above the roof tops of the town below and is bursting at the seams with stories and relics.

For family fun, visit one of the county''s many animal parks; Drusillas Park at Alfriston is a paradise of small exotic animals or there''s the Ashdown Forest Llama Park, home to more than 100 llamas and Fishers Farm Park is great for getting the younger ones moving. The Blue Reef Aquarium at Hastings and Brighton Sealife Centre are the ultimate way to experience underworld treasures without getting your feet wet.

Be inspired by the birthplace of modern England, and come and see for yourself why so many people choose to holiday in Sussex. Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Sussex today.
