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.

Cloudy skies and cooler temperatures begin to set in starting October, with daily highs around 9°C prevailing until April.

Plenty to do in and around the marina itself, plenty of places to it and a large supermarket for supplies. Easy access into Brighton either walking or by bus. Plenty of room with comfortable beds and all basic cleaning bits supplied as well as loo rolls and kitchen towels, tea, coffee and sugar. All linen supplied along with free view TV. Was lovely and warm with plenty of hot water for showers etc. Information list was good as was the selection of brochures. Perfect for a quiet few days and we left feeling refreshed and relaxed. Will certainly stay again.

The house is beautiful, loads of space, everything in there that you could need and a lovely hot tub to chill out in. Great location for a walk down to the beach and local cafe, even though it was a bit cold, would love to return in summer time. We couldn't have asked for a better house to stay in. Thank you!
