In West Sussex you can enjoy the space of the rolling chalk hills of the South Downs, the intimate, wooded landscape of the High Weald, the wildlife of the water meadows, historic market towns and idyllic villages. Head further south to the harbours of Chichester and Pagham and you’ll find charming waterside pubs, spectacular birdlife, and bustling marinas.
Ardingly is located in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The abundant woodland that characterises the area also harbours the nearby villages of West Hoathly, Balcombe and Handcross. The Ardingly and Weirwood reservoirs offer lots of activities and there are many attractive manor houses and gardens to visit.
A Medieval market town situated just 12 miles north of Chichester, offers the visitor a wealth of different experiences from the eerie ruins of Cowdray house to the impressive views from the crest of the rolling South Downs.
Pulborough sits on the edge of the River Arun, and has done since Roman times, as the river meanders through areas of outstanding natural beauty on its way towards the sea. It provides the perfect centre from which to explore the area and Pulborough itself with its specialist shops and its many listed buildings, all connected by a network of footpaths and bridleways.
