Stretching roughly from Chichester in the west to Rye in the east, Sussex is home to remarkable coastal cliffs, beautiful countryside, loads of historic sites, and a whole host of wonderful cities and towns. The region can be divided into West Sussex, East Sussex, and the city of Brighton and Hove. Visitors can look forward to stays in beautiful countryside holiday homes in Uckfield such as converted barns and sprawling Victorian cottages, seaside homes in any number of historic coastal towns, or modern and trendy apartments in Brighton. There is really is something for everyone in Sussex, from culture seekers and history buffs to outdoor enthusiasts and beach lovers.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Sitting at the end of South Downs National Park, Seven Sisters Country Park offers nearly 300 hectares of unspoilt coastline and chalk grasslands. The Seven Sisters make up a spectacular natural attraction, but there is a lot more to discover in the area. Visitors to the country park can enjoy hiking, cycling, canoeing, bird watching, and even fishing on the beach.

-Family attractions: Families staying in a Sussex holiday cottage will be surrounded by a wealth of child-friendly attractions. A trip to the Brighton Sea Life Centre will be sure to please any child, as will a visit to the Knockhatch Adventure Park in Hailson. Over in West Sussex, visitors to holiday homes in Chichester and nearby have easy access to a number of family-friendly places like Dunreyth Alpacas, and Earnley Butterflies, Birds, and Beasts.

-Historic sites: No history buff should come to Sussex without visiting the site of the Battle of Hastings, located in Battle. With Battle Abbey as its backdrop, the battlefield is a trip back in time. An onsite museum puts everything into context and there’s plenty to see and do here for visitors of all ages. Other magnificent historic sites in Sussex include Arundel and Bodiam Castles, neither of which would look out of place in the pages of a fairytale book.

-Culture: Brighton is the cultural capital of Sussex. The colourful city has earned a reputation for its festivals and atmosphere, particularly in the summer months. Beginning in May visitors can enjoy the Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe Festival. Both attract performers and musical talent from around the world and are not to be missed. May also marks the start of the Artists Open Houses event, during which over 1,000 artists participate, as well as the Great Escape Music Festival.

-Beaches: Brighton Beach is always popular, but it’s not the only beach worthy of attention along the Sussex coast. Those staying in a Sussex holiday home have access to a wide range of beaches, from Blue Flag designated Camber Sands and West Wittering, to the stunning coastline at Climping. The beaches at Eastbourne as also quite popular thanks to its wealth of attractions and facilities.

Weather in Sussex

Because a large part of Sussex straddles the coastline, the weather is best described as mild. The most pleasant weather can be experienced from May to September, when high temperatures range from 16°C - 21°C and it tends not to rain too often. Cloudy skies and cooler temperatures begin to set in starting October, with daily highs around 9°C prevailing until April.

Travel to Sussex

The A27 is the major road that spans the Sussex coastline and can be accessed by taking the M23 south from the M25 ring. Major towns and cities like Brighton have rail stations, many of which enjoy direct services from London. Gatwick Airport sits just within the Sussex border and receives flights from all across the UK. Car hire is available onsite and taxi services are also widely available.
