Get outside

There's no excuse for not getting going with your list at Cuckmere Valley. Start with:
  • No.2 roll down a really big hill

  • No.22 explore inside a tree
  • No.24 go on a walk barefoot
  • No.25 make a grass trumpet

Don't the rain put you off

Why not try No.6 run around in the rain if the weather isn't up to much? There's plenty to do in wet weather at Cuckmere Valley. 
 
Tick this one off too
  • No.13 make a mud pie
or if it's really cold
  • No.15 play in the snow

Hello sunshine

Watch the beautiful sunrise above the Cuckmere river, or you could stay late and catch the sunset. Either way, watching the sun come and up or set over the Cuckmere river is well worth the wait.

Get closer to nature

  • No.31 hunt for bugs
  • No.32 find some frogspawn
  • No.34 track wild animals
  • No.35 discover what's in a pond

Follow the path

There are plenty of trails to follow around Cuckmere Valley so why not have a go at orienteering?
  • No.45 find your way with a map and compass

Messing about on the river

Stop off at nearby Exceat to try canoeing around all the bends of the Cuckmere river.
  • No.50 canoe down a river
