This homely and comfortable restored 16th-century farmhouse is set in the heart of the 700-acre Seven Sisters Country Park off the South Downs Way. It is ideal for an easygoing, relaxing break consisting of glorious walks and cycle rides, good food and a dip into the best of English rural life. It features a lovely garden, and a characterful guest lounge and bedrooms boasting original features like wooden beams, blending with modern touches such as Scandi-style seating. Shingle beach, forest and heathland walks lead to cosy country pubs, inviting tea rooms and pretty villages.



We loved having a great choice of forest, coastal and heathland walks on the doorstep.

Seven Sisters Country Park is steps away from the hotel. It's a 20-minute walk to Cuckmere beach, and 20-minute drive to Eastbourne.
By car: under 3 hours from London and Oxford, 2 hours from Dover and 3 hours 45 minutes from Birmingham.
By train: London Bridge to Seaford takes around 1 hour 15 minutes. The hotel is an 8-minute drive from the station.
