If you are looking to book your own accommodation, instead of opting for our picks, and would like to walk or cycle the trail without heavy bags weighing and slowing you down, we work closely with South Downs Bag Transfers. Steve, Teena & the team at SDBT are based in Winchester and offer a reliable and hassle-free daily baggage transfer service along the South Downs Way from April to September.

This service allows you the total freedom to explore the South Downs the way you want, with your bags delivered and waiting for you at your chosen stop. It’s a great way to discover the South Downs National Park by following your feet and instincts without needing to worry about where your luggage is.


How much does baggage transfer cost?

How do South Downs Bag Transfers work?

Once you have figured out your itinerary, it’s important to communicate this with the team at South Downs Bag Transfers. Then the team can arrange for your bags to be collected from each accommodation that you stay at after 9am and dropped off at your next stay no later than 4pm.

This could mean your bags will be ready and waiting for you when you reach your destination, so you can shower and change into a fresh set of clothes at once.
