Ditchling Holiday Homes & Management
Nestled in behind the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park, just 10-minutes by car from Brighton & Hove, sits the historic village of Ditchling. Characterised by beamed and flint cottages with picturesque gardens surrounded by beautiful countryside; Ditchling offers its visitors a feast for the eyes… but it is more than just a pretty face.
There is plenty to entertain you in Ditchling with art galleries, museums, vineyards and many cafes, local pubs and boutique shops, all serving and selling artisan produce made with love by local businesses and residents.
Take a walk or a cycle along any number of woodland or Downland public foot paths, drinking in the views over Sussex for miles around (and stopping off at one of the many pubs en route). There are festivals and the famous London to Brighton bike ride which passes through the village to where competitors brave the steep incline of the beacon before the final leg, rolling downhill into Brighton!
It is a wonderful place to stay at any time of year as it changes so beautifully with the seasons. There are bluebells in spring, champagne picnics during summer, the russet tones of autumnal trees as the weather cools, and the pull of the roaring pub fire during winter. It is easy to fill a weekend or a fortnight here as Ditchling offers the perfect rural escape to all who visit.
