Walk out into the leafy country lanes of rural Sussex from the White Barn, or from the charming house in the heart of the village, which belongs to Jane Skelton; follow the signposts up onto Lodge Hill, from where you get lovely views over the rooftops of Ditchling, towards the South Downs. At dawn on 1st May each year the Ditchling Morris dance on the top of Lodge Hill to welcome the summer.

From Lodge Hill you can walk North West along the ridge towards Oldland Mill, which is an old wooden Post Mill dating from 1704. Oldlands Mill is the subject of 25 year restoration project undertaken by a group of local volunteers.

... all this within twenty minutes walk of your Sussex South Downs Bed and Breakfast cottage base!

The first night we stayed in Sussex, over a decade ago - we were struck by the peace at night and the lack of light pollution. The sky over the South Downs is wide and brilliant; on midnight walks up to the Beacon you can sometimes see shooting stars.

What a contrast it was to our noisy life in the city! We were hooked! Within a year we'd moved here.
