Place to visit near Combe Haven

There's more to this coastline than Brighton and Bognor. From the rolling South Downs to Beachy Head's soaring white cliffs, the scenery is simply sensational. No promises, but on average this is the warmest and driest corner of England. There's an array of elegant and ever-popular Regency and Victorian resorts; the iconic White Cliffs, and loads of great beaches to choose from. For a relaxed, self-contained holiday try Allhallows or Church Farm, while Combe Haven is at the heart of 1066 Country.
