About Famous Five on the South Downs

Five action-packed days in five beautiful South Downs coast and countryside properties led by five enthusiastic rangers.

Get a real flavour of the South Downs by working at a different property, with different habitats, different views and a different ranger team every day. From chalk grassland, heathland and woodland and even a day on beautiful East Head on the mouth of Chichester Harbour, you will have rangers on tap to enrich the experience and act as your guidebook. We hope that by the end you will be as smitten as we are with this rolling landscape. 

About the accommodation

Slindon Bunkhouse is a converted stable block on the 1,400-hectare estate at Slindon between Arundel and Chichester. The estate is typical of the South Downs with rolling hills and farmland set against a background of woodland and hedges. In addition to that it has an ancient deer park and various archaeological sites. The bunkhouse has a recently refurbished kitchen and seating area with sofas.
