South Downs Holiday Cottages

The South Downs is a wonderful mixture of biodiverse landscape with classic English towns and villages. The South Downs National Park covers an area of over 1,600 km2 and is home to more than 110,400 people. The area is one of outstanding beauty and steeped in history and traditional English culture, from the ancient Hampshire cathedral city of Winchester (where Jane Austen is buried) in the west to the bustling Sussex market town of Lewes in the east. The South Downs is home to many idyllic picture-postcard villages which, in addition to a traditional village pub or shop, offer an appealing choice of holiday cottages in peaceful rural surroundings from Alfriston in the east to Chawton (where Jane Austin lived) in the west.
