The England region
Sussex is in the south east of England stretching along the English Channel from Rye in the east to Chichester in the west with many fine blue flag beaches in between.
A major part of Sussex is covered by the chalk downland of the new South Downs National Park, which offers many pleasant walks and country pubs to discover.
The area has an abundance of history and culture with many outstanding places of interest including many castles, historic sites, family friendly activities, museums, working farms and theatres.
Inland the county market town of Lewes is well worth a visit with its imposing Norman castle and historic buildings. Also of historical interest is the cathedral city of Chichester.
Along the coast to the West is Brighton regarded as one of Europe's most cosmopolitan cities, whilst to the East can be found the popular seaside resort of Eastbourne.
The port town of Newhaven offers a gateway to Europe with its regular ferry crossing to Dieppe in France.
Sussex enjoys a climate well above the average for Britain, which makes it ideal to visit at anytime throughout the year.
Located in an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, on the beach front of Seaford town, in East Sussex, 'Driftwood' provides the perfect setting for exploring The South Downs National Park.
The home itself sits at the edge of The Seven Sisters Country Park, making it a perfect setting for outdoor activities including hiking, walking and mountain biking.
There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports including sailing, windsurfing and snorkeling all along the coast as far as Brighton Marina.
There are also several excellent golf courses nearby, two of which are actually in Seaford itself.
The towns of Brighton, Lewes and Eastbourne are within easy reach and are great for shopping and packed with museums, art galleries and other attractions such as the Royal Pavilion, the Palace Pier, Lewes Norman Castle and of course the historic site of The Battle of Hastings in 1066.
For those more energetic there are is a leisure centre with swimming pool and gym, and less than 100 metres from the property is "the salts" recreation ground which offers an impressive playground, tennis, pitch and putt, as well as a very popular cafe.
Seaford is a friendly and welcoming small seaside resort on the sunshine coast of Sussex and offers some of the most beautiful downland coastal areas you will find.
The cliffs rise from the town up to Seaford Head offering fabulous cliff top walks towards Cuckmere Haven and the Seven Sisters, one of the most recognisable views in England.
The town enjoys a healthy variety of high street and independent shops and a plethora of pubs and restaurants offering almost every cuisine.
For golf lovers, only a walk away, the course at Seaford Head is both challenging and stunning in its setting.
The Seven Sisters Country Park and visitor centre at Cuckmere is a must for any visit. It comprises 280 hectares of chalk cliffs, the meandering river valley of the River Cuckmere and chalk grassland for visitors to enjoy. It is popular for a number of outdoor activities including birdwatching, cycling and canoeing.
Two miles inland from Seaford is the beautiful historic village of Alfriston in the heart of the Downs. Making an excellent day out for families with young children, Drusillas Zoo Park the country's largest small zoo is just two miles north of the village. Newhaven Fort, which is a fascinating Victorian Naval Fortress, is just three miles to the west of Seaford.

“Nice house with lovely view”
Bright, clean and comfortable house. Lovely seaview and sunset. Great location. Seven sisters and Beachy Head within easy reach by car. Delightful village of Alfriston is nearby which has some cosy pubs serving delicious food.
“A lovely place to stay.”
Driftwood is a really lovely place to stay! The welcome from the owners was warm and friendly and the house itself spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. The view from the front windows/front decking is wonderful with the beach just a stride away. I have to say that we found the whole experience faultless and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Seaford itself was quiet and peaceful, which for us was a good thing, and the atmosphere in the pubs and restaurants we visited was always friendly. This is a perfect location for exploring the surrounding area and had some of the best views and nicest walks imaginable.
“Well presented and good location”
Although not using this as a holiday period, we found Driftwood met our every need. A well equipped and comfortable property with great views over the sea. Although mild for December we found Driftwood to be warm and comfortable and with easy parking it provided everything we needed.mthe complimentary mince pies along with other larder provisions was s nice gesture and well received, thank you. Simone and Mike were most helpful and accommodating particularly as we could only confirm our booking at short notice due to other people messing s around so we were most grateful for their forbearance!
“Delighted to return to this lovely home”
Returned with family to lovely sea front home, super cosy despite gale force winds. A warm welcome from the owners together with the comfy seating in the living room, fresh new bed linens and a well equipped kitchen made this 'a home from home' for our third year of visiting. Easy access to buses for Brighton (or Eastbourne) since car parking in Brighton is very expensive; most amenities in Seaford are within walking distance of Driftwood (supermarkets/good restaurants and a range of smaller shops) as well as the railway station. We hope to return in 2016!
“Relaxing with Nature!”
The Driftwood far exceeded my expectations. We had a late arrival and the arrangements were easy. After a long drive there were wonderful refreshments and cake and a nice note waiting . It was exceptionally clean, new and very inviting! The location is right on the English Channel with a small road in front . It is a short walk to the Seven Sisters cliffs and a great museum in an old military battery. My daughter and I had a late departure that was so appreciated. Highly recommended.
Thank you for letting us have such a great week at your fantastic property. We were blessed with light winds all week and watching the sea change from the relaxed comfort of your house and decking made for a wonderful week. My daughter loved the place and has told me that I must buy it!! Looking forward to another stay there at some point in the not too distant future. Loved it.
The property is so well equipped, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable, very easy to find with great views of the beach and the coast line. A short walk takes you in to town with lots of shops supermarkets and restaurants. I would highly recommend this property with lovely friendly helpful owners. Well done for creating a very home from home atmosphere.
We had such a lovely stay at this gorgeous house - it's so comfortable, and has been finished beautifully. The beach is right across the road (you can hear the waves!), and only a minute's walk away is a huge park which our children loved. The town of Seaford, again only a few minutes walk away, is a great place to explore with lots of cafes, restaurants and shops. From booking to checking in and out, the Driftwood team were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this property without hesitation to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful house right by the sea.
“Lovely house with great views”
The owners Mike and Simone, and Christine who met us on arrival, all ensured that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The house has been decorated with great care and style, and it maximizes the location and the views. The weather was a bit off , but we enjoyed watching the sea from the deck, and from the living room when the rain came. I would recommend this house to anyone visiting Seaford.
“immaculate accommodation on the sea front”
Accommodation was of the highest standard. Christine bent over backwards to help us and we could not have felt more welcome. We had a lovely weekend and hope to return soon.
