What kind of break are you after?  A few days camping with the kids? A romantic weekend with long walks, lazy pub lunches and a cosy B&B to come home to?  Or your very own country cottage, with the beautiful South Downs right outside your door?


There are some wonderful places offering B&B in Ditchling and the immediate surrounds, some offering walks from the door, others right in the heart of the village.

The Jointure Studios


A lovely, self-contained first floor flat in the oldest part of this historical building in the centre of the village. The Jointure Studios dates back to Tudor times and in 1920 was adapted into artist workshops by Sir Frank Brangwyn. Having converted the building into an unusual home in 2000, Shirley is now delighted to welcome guests and share her knowledge and love of the area.

Blackberry Wood

bwA beautiful, wooded campsite with camping pitches dotted between the trees in private woodland glades, each with its own firepit.  If you’re looking for something a little more quirky, opt for the Holiday Bus or Holicopter, or stay in one of the extraordinary treehouses.
