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 Please let us know if our information is out of date.
