Explore the South Downs

Discover the incredible natural beauty of the South Downs, just 30 minutes away

Being so close to Gatwick Airport, it’s so easy to forget that we’re just a short drive from one of the most beautiful National Parks in the South of England, the aptly named South Downs.

Stretching from countryside to coast, the South Downs encompass 1,600km2 of rolling green hills and stunning landscapes rich with wildlife. With the Old House Inn as your base you can easily spend time exploring this beautiful park. Take a stroll along the South Downs way and soak up some of the best of Britain’s countryside keeping a sharp eye and ear out for deer and green woodpeckers. If you’re in need of some soul-inspiring views,  head down to the white cliffs at Seven Sisters for a panorama looking out over the sea.
