Visitors can now stay in the heart of a country park after historic cottages were renovated.

The three cottages, in the former Foxhole farmstead in the Seven Sisters Country Park, sleep two, five and six people.

They are just a stone’s throw from the white cliffs and guests will also be able to take their pets with them.

It is the latest phase in the £2 million refurbishment of Seven Sisters Country Park. It has already completely revamped its visitor centre, shop, cafe and toilets.

Claire Onslow, commercial manager of Seven Sisters Country Park, said: “We average almost a million day trippers every year to Seven Sisters who come to enjoy the breathtaking views and now they can enjoy a break at the heart of this iconic location.

“These renovated holiday cottages and camping barn are very much part of the chalk landscape, surrounded by flower-rich downland and Sussex Breed cattle. The famous coastal views and the South Downs Way National Trail are just a short stroll away.

“This is a chance for people to really get away from it all, go car-free and immerse themselves in nature – and if you get a clear night, the immense star-studded skies need to be seen to be believed.

“Income from the accommodation will be ploughed back into the landscape to make it better for wildlife, so this is a win-win for people and nature.”

The National Park Authority took ownership of the site in 2021 from East Sussex County Council and now has a dedicated ranger and visitor experience team that is helping manage the landscape. Alongside the cottages, the National Park Authority has invested in a new camping barn and field for organised groups to stay.

Emma Neill, proprietor of Cuckmere Cottages and Camping , will be managing the accommodation for the National Park.

She said: “Growing up locally, this area is truly special to me and our team so we are very privileged to be able to share this with others. It’s wonderful to see guests experiencing a deeper connection to the environment through a longer stay.”

Prices start at £210 per person for two nights in the two-bed cottage.
