Newtimber Place is home to three delightful Four Star Gold (inspected by the AA) holiday homes ideally located within easy reach of the cosmopolitan city of Brighton and Hove (just over eight miles by car or seven miles on foot for those feeling energetic!).
Nestling amongst rolling countryside in an idyllic rural position, the cottages sit in the South Downs National Park in West Sussex and are great for those who enjoy walking with varied walks starting from the front door. Beautifully furnished the cottages provide a welcoming retreat at any time of the year and are ideal for couples, families and friends.
Bustling and vibrant, Brighton is a popular coastal city with a fun and energetic atmosphere during the day and night. Whether you are looking for some time on the beach, super restaurants, great shopping, lively nightlife or want to soak up some culture and history, Brighton has it all.
There are plenty of activities and attractions to suit all age groups. Lewes Castle, Wakehurst Place (NT) and Charleston are all popular with those who enjoy visiting houses and gardens. Why not take a boat trip and see some of the areas popular sights (including Beachy Head) from the water; and for the little ones, a day at Drusillas Park, Washbrooks Family Farm or Paradise Park are sure to be a holiday highlight. London is also within easy reach from Hassocks station which is just fifteen minutes by car.
Surrounded by so much beautiful countryside and so many attractions, Newtimber Place is ideal for simply relaxing or using as a base for exploring Sussex and its many delights.
