Easily accessible from London, the South Downs is the perfect location for a weekend away or a short break. The South Downs are a line of chalk hills that run along the southernmost counties of England culminating in the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, picturesque and accessible chalk downlands dotted with pretty villages and ancient market towns. This landscape offers an eclectic mix of flora and fauna all linked together by the South Downs Way, a National Park, a tranquil playground of gently rolling hills, the ultimate escape.
Plan your route on a linear journey through the south of England as it’s hard to pick just one location to stay in the 628 square miles of England’s newest National Park. Farmhouse bed and breakfasts will complement your journey as this is the ideal location for cycling or just taking life at a gentler pace, with country pubs to refresh and restore you on your way. Often overlooked as a holiday destination and not for nothing called ‘the lungs’ of south east England, the South Downs offer a holiday location that will be different each time you visit simply due to its unique location, straddling several of the southern coastal counties.
