Hillside Cottage has the advantage of offering a countryside setting and yet has easy access to many local attractions within in minutes. There are plenty of walks and bridleways walking directly from the cottage and you walk up Bury Hill to access the South Downs Way direct at the brow. The South Downs Way is one of 15 National Trails in England and Wales and was the first bridleway National Trail in England. It is also the only National Trail to lie entirely within a National Park. Stretching from the ancient cathedral city of Winchester in the west, first capital of England, through to the white chalky cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head at Eastbourne in the east, almost all of its stunning 100 mile length is blissfully off-road.
The lovely village of Amberley is a lovely walk from Bury and is a village that has managed to retain its character and appeal over the centuries as it is noted for its many thatched cottages. This is also the location of the Amberley Working Museum a 36 acre open air museum set into a chalk quarry and dedicated to the industrial heritage of South East England. Depending on the timing of your visit there are many themed events so it is worth taking a look to see what is on.
The village of Bignor is two miles from Hillside Cottage. Here you will find the Roman Villa, a home and farm with world class mosaic floors that was a significant settlement in the 3rd Century AD. We include a link to Bignor Roman Villa under Places to Visit in West Sussex on our website.
Five miles from Bury Hill, immediately south of the Downs, you come to Arundel which is a historic market town dominated by the symbolic castle and the rising spire of the cathedral. The town offers a plethora of craft and antique shops as well as restaurants and tearooms. A trip to Arundel would never be complete without visiting the castle. The seat of the Dukes of Norfolk and set in 40 acres of sweeping grounds and gardens, Arundel Castle has been seasonally open to visitors for nearly 200 years. It is one of the great treasure houses of England and to climb the 131 steps to the Keep to take in the views is worth the effort!
This historic market town of Petworth is four miles to the north and is best known as the location of the stately home Petworth House and deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown. The house and its grounds are now owned and maintained by the National Trust. The town itself is full of quaint houses and they are interspersed with antique shops and tearooms so it is worth taking the time to browse having visited Petworth House.
The Sussex coast is less than ten miles drive from the cottage with both Climping Beach and Littlehampton’s West Beach providing a lovely coastal day out. Other attractions in the area include events at the Goodwood Estate such as the Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and , of course, Glorious Goodwood.
