the Coast Guard Cottages provide the best view of the Seven Sisters white cliffs. They are approximately a 30 minute walk from the road. The view is well worth the effort

Anybody who's seen the film Atonement might recognise these cottages. They're beautiful located overlooking the Seven Sisters and the Exceat river mouth. I hope they're not in danger from cliff erosion...
