Sue and Mike welcome you to South Downs Way Bed and Breakfast: their 17th Century Cottage in Poynings, just 20 minutes' walk from the South Downs Way long distance walking/ cycling path at Devil's Dyke. We are 50 yards from The Royal Oak pub in Poynings with its great food and ambience. In addition, the Shepherd and Dog pub at Fulking is a mile away, or The Ginger Fox pub is 2 miles away.

We have two dogs and five chickens so you can opt for freshly laid, corn-fed free range eggs for your breakfast. We can also provide locally sourced famous Rushfields Farm Shop sausages and Springs smoked salmon. Alternatively, you can opt for muesli, yoghurt and fresh fruit (organic from the garden in season!). We also offer vegan and gluten-free options.

South Downs Way B and B welcomes your own dog/dogs who can stay in the room with you for £10 per stay to cover additional cleaning.

The Brighton Room is a double with  its own ensuite shower room.

The Winchester Room can be a twin or a superking with an ensuite shower room.

We do offer a third bedroom (the Eastbourne Room) but this would have to share the bathroom with the Winchester Room so would only be suitable for families or friends of anyone in Winchester. This room is best as a single  for which we charge an additional £40 per person per night.

We offer free onsite parking and are only 5 miles from Brighton. We are a 25 minute drive from London Gatwick airport; 10 minutes from Hassocks railway station. There are buses into Brighton - both are a 20 minute walk to the bus stop, or we can drop you in the car (5 minutes) ; one of them is the open top bus from Devils Dyke to the Palace Pier in Brighton.

We can provide packed lunches for walkers and transport your luggage to your next destination for a price! We can also offer local transfers, for example to weddings at Pangdean, Fulking, Edburton, Tottington Manor or Wickwoods.
