One of the most obvious attractions of the area are its great walks, whether it be on The South Downs or on some of the beautiful walks that can be taken from the home farm. We are lucky here at the farm to have so many footpaths available for our campers. There are strolls, walks, rambles and route marches. they can take in pubs, hamlets, villages, tea rooms, the sea, the downs, towns – just not cities, although Brighton is only 20 minutes by car!
Cyclists also have a fine time of it too. in fact there are numerous local cycling clubs. Walking to the Downs is fine, but it is quite steep to get to the tops so do bear that in mind, it takes about 15 minutes from our entrance to the first climb, but if you aim towards Chanctonbury Rung, at least you will see this most famous landmark before exhaustion sets in.
