A county escape in East Sussex

An abundance of green fields, hedgerows, rustic farms and half-timbered buildings in towns that ooze medieval history from every pore, make East Sussex easy to love. Its beaches – from blustery Camber to cliff-backed Seaford – are just a couple of hours' train ride from the big city, making it a weekend playground for London-dwellers during the summer. Then come the enchanting towns – Rye, with its Tudor frontispieces and cozy pubs, buzzing Brighton, and its vintage shops and student bars. And for adventurers? East Sussex vacation rentals also pepper the boundaries of the handsome High Weald and the South Downs National Park.

Things to do

Battling through East Sussex's sights

East Sussex has some of the most enthralling historical sites in southern England. Hastings is the place to go to follow in the footsteps of William the Conqueror – the one-time king who did battle here back in 1066. Be sure to visit ruined Hastings Castle while you're there. The nearby town of Battle has the spot of that great Anglo-Norman showdown marked by a beautiful – also semi-ruined – Benedictine abbey. For even more culture, head for Brighton and Hove. The Mughal-esque Royal Pavilion might draw the eye, but the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery is where the rich art collections await.

Activities

Going countryside in East Sussex

If you're the sort who dreams of snuggling up in a cozy cottage surrounded by an English rose garden, East Sussex vacation rentals could just be the perfect pick. These stays, away from London's hustle and surrounded by the rolling South Downs and green High Weald, promise a taste of quaint, countryside England. Morning walks over wooded dales and farmers' markets in medieval towns are all part of the East Sussex package. So, too, are horse-riding excursions and scenic drives.

Weather

England's summer days in East Sussex

It's hardly a surprise that East Sussex, with its beaches and leafy backcountry, is most popular with travelers during the English summer. That season lasts from late May to August in this southern corner of the country. It's not always dry, but there's much less chance of rain at this time of year, and the temperatures tend to linger in the high 60s and low 70s. Spring, in April and May, is also usually warm and sunny, while fall, in September and October, promises fewer crowds on the beaches and in the nature parks.

Natural features

Quaint country and soaring cliffs in East Sussex

A national park and a vast area of outstanding natural beauty combine to make East Sussex a truly handsome cut-out of south-east England. Start in the South Downs National Park, which is famed for the glimmering chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head. There, the headland soars more than 500 feet above the lighthouse that stands watch in the English Channel. Further north is the High Weald AONB, a patchwork of primeval woodland and green valleys, where farms and rivers weave around the very edges of London.
