YHA South Downs is a refurbished Sussex farmhouse and barn buildings in a great location right on the South Downs Way, just a short stroll along a country lane from Southease Railway station. The buildings themselves are packed full of original features – you might visit the disused dairy farm or be lucky enough to have a stone window setting in your room! Surrounded by the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park, the site stands in extensive grounds, ideal for exploring by experienced or budding naturalists – or just a place to relax and unwind.
Caburn Cottages are a group of eight holiday cottages built using local brick and flint, on the site of our former cowsheds. Our cottages are attractively furnished and equipped to a high standard.
The cottages comprise between one and three bedrooms, each with a kitchen/lounge and a bathroom. They are are double-glazed and well-insulated, and have an area of lawn outside with garden furniture.
The Ram Inn has been at the heart of the vibrant farming community of Firle for over five hundred years. The rambling old brick and flint building has three main rooms, each with its own open fire lit every day between October and April. The old stable and coach house have been converted into a private dining room and outside ‘farmers bar’, and our splendid flint-walled garden is perfect for peaceful summer supping under the greengage trees. They have 5 quirky, individual rooms above the pub.
Housedean Farm Campsite is located on a working farm, within the South Downs National Park between Lewes and Brighton in East Sussex.
While they offer a traditional, basic camping experience, they also want you to be comfortable throughout your stay and therefore provide modern facilities with rustic open air hot showers.
