This is a lovely cottage in an idyllic location. It's peaceful and the views of the South Downs are like something from a Ravilious painting. It's not far from Ditchling and Brighton is a 25 min drive away. The house has four good-sized bedrooms with...More

About the neighbourhood
Our area is dominated by the curving geology of the scarp side of the South Downs.

The South Downs are strewn with wildflowers in spring and early summer (this is one of the most bio-diverse areas in Europe) and you can spot many types of birds too - kestrels,... more
