Where you’ll be

Alfriston, East Sussex, United Kingdom

Alfriston is a historic village, set in the lovely South Downs, granted a Royal Charter as a market town in 1406. It has interesting, independent shops (Much Ado Books, Steamer Trading cookshop), a lovely church ("the Cathedral of the South Downs"), The Clergy House (the first house bought by the National Trust, for £10!), two hotels, two pubs, a restaurant and several tea shops, so you are never short of eating opportunities! The Village Stores are open every day with excellent deli and basic provisions. Nearby are Drusilla's Zoo, Glyndebourne Opera House, Charleston Farmhouse, and of course the glorious walks in the South Downs and the fantastic chalk cliffs of the Sussex coast. Walk from the house to see the murals in Berwick Church (45 mins), the "smallest church" in Lullington (20 mins), the Long Man of Wilmington (45 mins), or just to one the many pubs in walking distance.
