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.

    This stunning barn conversion boasts an exceptional location, offering magnificent views over the Amberley Wildbrooks, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, set in the heart of the South Downs National Park. Having been sympathetically converted to an excellent standard, Little Barn was nominated for an award by the local authority’s planning department. Formerly used for agricultural purposes, the barn still retains some of the character features, such as period beams, some of which are low on the first floor. The entrance hall, with room for coats and boots, leads into the light and spacious kitchen/dining area, which has a high vaulted ceiling and a stone floor, with underfloor heating. French doors lead out to the large decked terrace, a delightful spot from which to savour those outstanding views, and enjoy al fresco dining or an aperitif or two! The double bedroom is on the ground floor and has an en-suite shower room.

    Stairs lead from the ground floor to a spacious galleried sitting room, with two armchairs, and another seating area with sofas and TV. There is a door with a Juliet balcony, and plentiful beams, some of which are low. The barn incorporates garage parking for 2 cars.
