South Downs Stay is the perfect place to enjoy for a Summer break.  West Sussex is officially the sunniest county in England! 

Enjoy a romantic walk along the rolling hills of the South Downs.  View the beautiful river valley early in the morning when a mist often sits over the river. Gaze at the red kites gliding on warm thermals of air as they survey the ground below.  Glimpse and hear the local owls after dusk.  Make the most of the dark evenings and get moonstruck with clear views of the starry dark skies.  At dawn open a window and listen to the impressive morning birdsong and view the birds feeding in our wild flower garden.

Come and view farmland wildlife, breathe the fresh air and relax with us!

For the peace and relaxation of all our guests we can only accommodate children of 5 and over.
