Get in touch

If you are looking for traditional English countryside at its very best, with thatched cottages, ancient pubs and imposing castles, then look no further than the South Downs National Park. This became Britain’s newest national park in April 2011, recognising it as an area of outstanding national beauty and cultural heritage that should be preserved for future generations.

Close to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports

For somewhere that feels so rural, the South Downs Way is incredibly accessible, being less than an hour on the train from London. The closest airport is Gatwick, less than 30 miles away and Heathrow is also within 50 miles of the National Park. If you are getting the Eurostar from Paris or Belgium, it’s very easily accessible from Ashford and Ebbsfleet stations. It is also right on the doorstep of many of the south coast towns such as Chichester, Worthing, Brighton and Eastbourne.
