Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Newhaven

The port of Newhaven lies at the mouth of the River Ouse in East Sussex. Its bustling marinas and maritime heritage make it an atmospheric base from which to explore the Sussex coast. As you explore the waterfront, look out for Newhaven Gig Rowing Club, who can often be seen in their beautifully restored Cornish boat. You will find a glorious stretch of sand near the harbour wall, where sunbathing and swimming are popular. On the doorstep of your holiday cottage in Newhaven, you can take the ferry to France, eat at one of Dieppe’s seafront restaurants, pick up a bag of fresh produce and return at sunset. In the town centre, there are a variety of independent businesses, including West Quay Fisheries, where you can buy fresh seafood. One of the town’s most distinctive landmarks is Newhaven Fort, built in 1871 and played an important role in the World Wars. A stroll to this hillside coastal defence is essential on self-catering holidays in Newhaven, with far-reaching views towards France and the opportunity to explore the labyrinth of tunnels. Spectacular walks can be enjoyed on Newhaven’s doorstep, along the riverbanks and coast, and through the wild scenery of Castle Hill nature reserve. The chalk hills of the South Downs National Park are nearby, as is the lively city of Brighton.
