South Downs Way Accommodation

South Downs Way Accommodation and Services

RambleFest displays details of the South Downs Way accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, guidebooks and maps, and public transport.

South Downs Way accommodation

As well as South Downs Way accommodation, pubs and restaurants, we include an Ordnance Survey map link for each location along the route for which we have service details – and also for each individual accommodation, etc. Please refer to the South Downs Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the services for that location are displayed in a new page.
The South Downs Way is a 100 mile walk connecting Eastbourne and Winchester. The path is beautiful and has a feeling of remoteness, although really never far from villages or farmhouse accommodation. It connects with the Wealdway long-distance footpath at Eastbourne, and others along the route.

Notes on South Downs Way Accommodation

We have listed the accommodation for each location in our South Downs Way Accommodation, Services and mileage Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of the South Downs Way accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities and for what times of the year they are open. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome South Downs Way accommodation recommendations.

South Downs Way Restaurants and Pubs

Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B accommodation in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the South Downs Way, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. Please refer to our South Downs Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table below.
Restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.

South Downs Way Public Transport

As well as listing train stations and bus links on the relevant pages, we have also listed South Downs Way public transport on a single page to assist those organising their walk: South Downs Way Public Transport

South Downs Way Web Links

The South Downs Way National Trail website has a great deal of information as well as an interactive map. It also has up-to-date footpath diversion info.

South Downs Way Circular Walks

We welcome suggestions for circular walks along the South Downs Way. Please give us as much info as possible, e.g. distance, refreshment stops, description etc and we will add a map and a link.

South Downs Way Photographs Etc
