Have you tried the Upper Horseshoe walk from Steyning?

A wonderful walk from Steyning with fantastic views across the Sussex countryside..

Start by walking up Sir George’s Place in Steyning – just off the High Street. Turn right up a footpath when you see the tennis courts. Keep heading for the trees on the skyline. Once you approach the tress you will be able to enjoy magnificent views…

Bear left as you walk through the trees. When you leave the trees head along the footpath back down into the town. You will come into Newham Lane and later the High Street. The walk takes an hour to an hour and a quarter. wild garlic steyning sussex

I took the photo of wild garlic as I walked through the woods last weekend.

 

 

Have you ever gone hiking on the South Downs?

Have you ever gone hiking on the South Downs?

The South Downs National Park is one of 15 in the UK. You can walk the length of the Downs on the South Downs Way – a long distance footpath – but there are many, many other well signposted public footpaths and bridleways that you could explore too

The long distance South Downs Way runs within a mile of Steyning. Unusually this section of the path is by a river.

The Monarch's Way also runs close to Steyning – said to be used by King Charles 2nd in the 17th century, when he was escaping to France

A lovely view of the South Downs National Park

A lovely view of the South Downs National Park

You can see the radio masts at Truleigh Hill and in the far distance the trees on top of the downs at Chanctonbury Ring.

The South Downs Way– a long distance footpath – runs along the top of the downs.

Steyning is a ideal base if you are a keen rambler. You can walk east from Steyning to Chanctonbury Ring (3 miles away) and west up to Truleigh Hill where there is a youth hostel that serves drinks and cakes at weekends – daily in the summer.

Rosebud Cottage – a holiday home in Steyning sleeps 3 – it is currently available for bookings from October.

Another lovely picture of the Seven Sisters in East Sussex

Another lovely picture of the Seven Sisters in East Sussex

The Seven Sisters cliffs run between Seaford (near Brighton) and Eastbourne in southern England. They are in the South Downs National Park.

Follow the South Downs Way along the top of the cliffs … it’s a lovely walk… the best known in Sussex. Start walking from Exceat, Birling Gap or Eastbourne.

What I like about this picture is the sheep in the foreground. You often see sheep on the South Downs

Stunning chalk cliffs at Seven Sisters in Sussex. But beware of falling rocks if you walk underneath it!

Its great location at the foot of the South Downs National Park!

You can enjoy fantastic scenery close by. There are many well sign posted footpaths leading on to the hills.

Chanctonbury Ring

In the photo you can see the South Downs Way and Chanctonbury Ring: This is a large Bronze Age hill-fort, with far ranging views from the north edge of the South Downs across the Weald to the North Downs. There are views of the sea to the south and lines of sight to other prehistoric landmarks. Ancient tracks, round barrows and cross-dykes surround the site. Well worth a visit & just a 3 mile walk from Steyning …

The Seven Sisters are chalk cliffs in Sussex – not to be confused with the white cliffs of Dover further east!

The coastal path you can see is part of the South Downs Way in Sussex. It's about 8 miles long
altogether.

You can stop for tea and cake at Birling Gap!

There is parking at Birling Gap and also at Exceat … Exceat is a 45 minute drive from Steyning & within easy reach of Brighton

Steyning – at the foot of the South Downs – is an ideal place to stay if you enjoy walking. It's in West Sussex – 10 miles from Brighton in south-east England.

The map below shows a local river and countryside walk. You can download 4 leaflets – each with details about different local walks at:

I recommend all of them! (I have walked 3 – including the one below)

Comments from my guests

Guests who enjoy walking wrote the following: “Lovely, well equipped cottage. Didn’t use car at all, so many walks from the village. Had our own maps but leaflets and books in the cottage were very helpful”

Many walkers stay at Rosebud Cottage. The South Downs in Sussex has many well sign posted footpaths. So if you enjoy walking perhaps you’d like a break there too?
