Look no further if you want to get away from the hectic hustle and bustle of modern living and slip into complete peace and tranquillity. Beacon View is situated in the stunning picturesque village of Alciston in the heart of the Southdowns National Park and accessed by a country lane off the A27 between the villages of Selmeston and Berwick.

The views to the Southdowns are quite spectacular. The Old Coach road (unmade track) that surrounds the village is ideal for walking and birdwatching. The beautiful villages of Alfriston and Firle are equidistant and also offer the opportunity for great walks in the unspoilt countryside around them.

Throughout the year there are events at Charleston Manor (home to the Bloomsbury Set) some 5 miles distant. Firle Place is approximately 3 miles away and is open to visitors during the summer months hosting various events. For Opera enthusiasts Glyndebourne Opera House is situated some 5/6 miles away.

Eastbourne with its splendid Victorian seafront buildings and theatres is a complete contrast and just a 15 minute car ride. Beacon View is on the ground floor of a building behind what was formerly the village pub but is now a private residence and can be rented together with the one bedroom Loft Apartment above if desired.
