Eastbourne 2017

Green & pleasant land

Green & pleasant land downs up the Step from our seafront at Holywell into the rich tapestry of wildlife and exquisite landscapes that make up the South Downs National Park. Feel at one with nature. Be revived as you explore the quiet valleys, ancient woodland, rolling hills and enchanting forests. Follow the undulating South Downs Way, a route of old tracks and drove ways along the ridge of the chalk downs between Eastbourne and Winchester and be captivated by its breath-taking natural beauty. Walk this way CUCKMERE HAVEN Step inside our magnificent National Park at the Seven Sisters to Eastbourne, a 7½ mile walk through sheep-grazed grassland. Stop to breathe in the wonder of the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters, scrunch across the pebbles at Birling Gap and search for ancient ammonite remains. Take in the wonder of Beachy Head with its iconic red and white striped lighthouse, stand and gaze at the blooming yellow gorse, rich flower meadows and the meandering river at Cuckmere Haven with its water birds on the river. 8 EASTBOURNE : SUNNY STAYS 2017 VIEWS TO JEVINGTON
