Find the best Long Man walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Premier Inn Eastbourne Polegate area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Friendly service, great group of guys. All very knowledgable and helpful!

Good value and friendly staff. The stock variety has been reduced a lot recently though.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Peel House Farm Caravan & Camping Park

B2104 Ersham Rd, Hailsham, Polegate BN27 2RH, UK – 01323 845629

As an active retired couple we really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this friendly little farm. Endless rambles along The Cuckoo Trail and many walkways. The South Downs NP is within walking distance and has many pubs and tea toons . We will most definitely be back probably several times this season, so much to see and do locally .

Lovely stay . Owners very helpful. Would highly recommend this site. We will be staying again in our caravan. Nothing seems to much trouble to make sure we have an enjoyable stay. Wayne & Anne.

The Homestead

Ersham Rd, Hailsham BN27 3PN, UK – 01323 840346

First time here. Loved the peaceful site so much we have booked 5 more weekends through to the end of the year. The owners are lovely. Friendly, helpful & keep the little orchard site in tip top condition. Just one toilet & shower, but with only 5 units pitched on site at any one time who needs more. Ample space for pitching, we chose to pitch in the centre of the field & was alone there & it was perfect for us. 4 other units were pitched along the hedge line which had superb views of the Downs. The site is adult only, which again all added to the overall peacefulness of the place. Dogs are positively welcomed & can even wander around off lead & have a little play with the owners lovely little dog Toby, who is never too far away. Hardstandings are also available for wet/muddy weather. The Cuckoo Trail is a few metres from the sites entrance. Here you can walk/cycle for miles. We stopped at the Cuckoo Shack Cafe for amazing Smoothies & doggy icecream & there are dog friendly pubs in walking/cycle distance too and also serve food. Just a short car journey away is the lovely seaside town of Eastbourne, the stunning views & walks of Beachy Head, Birling Gap & the South Downs. Country pubs with restaurants, or serving bar meals are plentiful in the area. You can even catch a bus right outside the site either into Eastbourne, or the opposite way to the small market Town of Hailsham (which is only a pleasant 25min walk along the Cuckoo Trail). Some people's reviews have commented on a Nursing home being next to the site, this really won't affect your stay at all. In fact if I hadn't read about it myself I would be none the wiser. The owners beautiful home is on the site, as basically you are pitched in his lovely orchard to the rear of their house. There is some traffic noise, depending on time of day, but not enough to outweigh the overall peaceful & relaxing atmosphere of this little site. We feel we have found a little gem & can't wait to return.
