Local Attractions

The view from Fairoaks Farm looks directly on to one of the areas biggest local attractions. The South Downs has recently been designated as a National Park and it is this that attracts many visitors to the area.

The South Downs way, that stretches from Eastbourne to Winchester (80 miles) is one of the most popular and certainly the most spectacular of walks in Southern England. While Fairoaks is ideally placed for a night stop, for walkers, cyclists and riders alike, there are also various Downland walks that can be planned from Fairoaks itself.

If the Downs are not your cup of tea, other short or longer walks and bike rides can be undertaken from Fairoaks which don't involve hill walking. There are paths that link to the extensive network of local footpaths, which can take in other local sites and places of interest as well.

If that 's all too hearty for you, there are numerous beaches that are just a short drive away. For many, a dip by the seaside is one of the great "getting away from it all" weekend pastimes. We are within incredibly easy striking distance of the coast ,which is just six miles away.

The quaint and historic town of Steyning itself is surprisingly fun. As one of the few really traditional towns left, it is dominated by local shops which sell local produce, rather than chains which seem to go further and further afield for their goods. Steyning is very pretty, has numerous Restaurants, Tea Rooms and Pubs and (as it is really only 3 miles away) is well worth a visit.

Talking of Tea Rooms, Wiston tea Rooms in Water Lane (5 mins from our entrance) boasts one of the most poular around. A pretty Garden, vast scones, wonderful local jams and delicious local cream make this a mecca for locals and visitors alike.
