Holiday cottages in Sussex

With its seafront promenades, never-ending beaches, and swathes of pristine downland, gentle Sussex is one of England’s fairest counties.

The South Downs are a joy to visit at any time of year, but at the height of summer, when the sun warms its hazy meadows, there’s no place quite like it.

Quirky Brighton is one of the county’s most popular destinations, while history buffs should head to Hastings, site of possibly the most famous battle in British history.

The Morris Apartment, East Grinstead 

William Morris was the inspiration for the interior design of this cosy apartment near East Grinstead. Small, but perfectly formed, the apartment is a great spot from which to explore the area, an interesting part of Sussex that borders both Surrey and Kent.
