It's hard to believe this special place of rolling green countryside and white chalky coastland is only half an hour away from the English mainland; time spent here feels nothing like the frantic pace of daily life. And thanks to low light pollution, it's one of the best spots in the South to see the stars flash across the dark sky at night – so remember to pack a flask!

    Lovely walk to beach

    Despite the close proximity of the road which was far busier than anticipated, and that it became a bit of a race track in the evening, it was very quiet at night and very dark. Coming from the noisy and bright South East it was lovely to get a good nights sleep. Great to be able to walk from the door - to the beach or up on to the Downs. Beautiful wild flowers including orchids and butterflies.

    Isolated yet accessible

    The isolated yet accessible location with a superb view. The cottage was clean and warm on our arrival with a welcoming card and tea tray with milk in the fridge, all touches that were appreciated.
