The Walk a Country Mile campaign aims to get people outside this July to celebrate a national treasure – the British countryside. It has been devised by The Princes’s Countryside Fund to raise money for all kinds of wonderful countryside projects. Alan Titchmarsh is also encouraging us all to get out in the beautiful British countryside, he wants the British public to ‘leave the golf clubs and go for a proper walk’.
So why not make it part of a short break or longer holiday in our stunning English countryside? We have some beautiful cottages dotted all over the south of England, just waiting for you and your walking boots.
Why not visit the South Downs Way, stretching from the ancient cathedral city of Winchester in the west, first capital of England, through to the white chalky cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head at Eastbourne in the east, almost all of its stunning 160 kilometre length is blissfully off-road.
Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of high chalk downland, patchworks of fields and deep wooded valleys. Along the way you can discover Iron Age Iron Age hill-forts, ancient chalk figures, medieval villages and Norman churches, just a few clues to the areas rich history.
We have some fabulous properties in lovely countryside, with an abundance of footpaths and trails.
