Where to stay in the South Downs Whether you're spending your time walking in the South Downs National Park, dressing up for Glyndebourne or revving those engines at Goodwood, hospitality comes in all shapes and sizes in this picturesque part of Sussex. This elegant part of the world has gained a reputation for English wine in recent years, including the likes of Three Choirs and the award-winning Wiston Estate, while its hotels are also well known for serving exquisite food. From the Itchen Valley of Hampshire in the west to Beachy Head, in the Eastbourne Downland Estate, East Sussex, in the east and amazing wildlife by The River Meon, the South Downs is home to spa hotels and Michelin Star favourites, romantic retreats and family-friendly getaways. It is a feast for the senses in all ways.
