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.

    Set within their own grounds, these two adjoining, well-presented holiday properties are nestled just across the road from Ashdown Forest, an ancient area of peaceful heathland within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They both feature beautiful original art works throughout.

    Poundgate Park House (UKC826) can accommodate up to ten holidaymakers in style, with a balconied bedroom that commands far-reaching, unbroken views across fields, along with a wood burner in the living room to provide that warm and welcoming ambience after a leisurely stroll through the forest.

    Comfortably sleeping up to four guests, Poundgate Park Cottage (UKC827) boasts ground floor accommodation with a large walled garden with its own apple orchard.

    The forest is a haven for native wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled for deer, badgers and grazing sheep. It’s also perfect terrain not only for walkers, but for cyclists as well. 2 miles away is Crowborough – highly acclaimed by the Edwardians as a health resort due to its height above sea level. The town is also the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of Sherlock Holmes, and should the weather take a turn for the worse, the leisure centre provides excellent swimming opportunities.

    Royal Tunbridge Wells makes for an equally great day out just 7 miles away. The town takes its name from the well in the centre, an ancient chalybeate spring that was first discovered over 400 years ago. The iron-rich waters were served up to v`isitors by a ‘Dipper’, a tradition that is still proudly carried on even today. The Pantiles, a Georgian colonnade that once served as a meeting place for gentry, is also well worth a visit thanks to its eclectic mix of shops, eateries, art galleries and a weekly farmers’ market.

    Other historic attractions in the region include a fairy tale moated castle at Bodiam, the turreted Arundel Castle, the blooming gardens of Herstmonceux Castle and Sheffield Park. Take the Bluebell Railway for a trip through some of the most beautiful countryside in the High Weald, observe the animals (and Thomas the Tank Engine) at Drusillas Zoo Park, or partake in some wine tasting events at one of the local vineyards. Alternatively, head to the beach for a day at Brighton or Eastbourne, take a boat trip around the bay or stroll along the pier with an ice cream in hand. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 150 yards. These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 14 guests.
