Today’s increasingly digital world can sometimes make it feel like nature is way beyond our reach. Luckily, West Sussex is accessible, affordable and a fantastic all-round option for families looking to reconnect.
What do you look for when choosing a family holiday or short break? Vast expanses of pristine sandy beaches where you can sail, surf, swim and enjoy simple seaside pleasures, like eating fish and chips and playing in classic coastal arcades? Deserted campsites in hidden locations where phones are strictly forbidden but roaring campfires are positively encouraged? Well-connected walking routes where you can stop off for a picnic al fresco? Stunning countryside scenery with uninterrupted views of ancient downland? The chance to learn to horse ride, zip-wire through the forest, see birds of prey up close and stargaze as darkness falls and the evening birdsong begins? All of this is well within your reach in West Sussex.
If you're up for a family bike ride, don't miss out on one of our car free routes such as the Downs Link, or a ride along the promenade with plenty of places to stop for an ice cream!` Or perhaps you’d prefer one of the many water activities on offer for a family looking for a fun way to entertain their children while keeping them healthy and active.
Snuggle up under canvas, bed down for the night in a cosy bed and breakfast in a quaint Sussex village or stay at one of the child-friendly boutique or spa hotels that are dotted throughout the region. There really is something for every budget and age range.
If you’re looking for peace, tranquillity and an abundance of outdoor activities that will help you reconnect not just with each other, but also with nature, isn’t it time you booked your trip to West Sussex? It’s much closer than you think.
