Britain’s newest national park protects a line of chalk downland that stretches from Winchester in the west to Eastbourne in the east. Its most familiar places include the famous ‘rollercoaster’ cliffs of the Seven Sisters, the plunging valley at the Devil’s Dyke, Arundel’s sprawling castle and the chalk peak of Ditchling Beacon. The South Downs Way National Trail takes walkers from one end of the downs to the other, but this national park has many other walking trails – including the Monarch’s Way, The West Sussex Literary Trail and New Lipchis Way. There are picturesque villages to admire, historic estates to explore and many visitor attractions including Bignor Roman Villa, Arundel’s Wetland Centre, Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve, Amberley Working Museum, Fishbourne Roman Palace and The Weald and Downland Museum. Abingworth House – our historic 4-star country house – is peacefully located in the Sussex countryside. It is geared to the needs of walkers and outdoor enthusiasts with hearty food, a Discovery Point containing detailed route notes and lots of room to relax. It’s the perfect base from which to enjoy a self-guided walking holiday in the South Downs.
