About The Cottage at Friston Down

The Cottage at Friston Down accommodates six guests and affords a picturesque setting with spectacular views over the beautiful South Downs and beyond towards the English Channel. Whether you are looking for a walking or cycling holiday or simply want a break with friends or family, The Cottage is an ideal retreat all year round.

Located in the village of Friston, near East Dean within East Sussex, the cottage is in an ideal spot for exploring the South Downs Way, along with Brighton, Eastbourne, the Seven Sisters, Beachy Head and the many attractions of the South Coast.

Nearby East Dean is known as 'the Gateway' to The South Downs National Park and provides a perfect holiday destination for walkers, cyclists and those who appreciate beautiful scenery and countryside. Perfectly positioned, the village is only a mile from Birling Gap where the nearest beach is located and is full of history with its pretty flint church, great pub and cricket green which attracts visitors. As well as The Tiger Inn, there is also a Thai restaurant on the green which is very popular and a small range of shops for essential provisions.

A wider selection shops and places to eat can be found in Eastbourne (just a couple of miles away) where you will also find clean pebble beaches, its pier for a sedate stroll and promenade (great for roller skating). Eastbourne also offers plenty of entertainment with clubs and a theatre.

Whether you are looking for a relaxing retreat or want to visit the pretty villages and attractions that East Sussex has to offer, The Cottage at Friston Down is a great choice.
