Head to the heart of the South Downs for a stay among the horses at The Downs Stables – pods here are part of a historic National Hunt Racing stables in the village of Findon, just below Cissbury Ring.
This is a splendid spot for those who are keen on all things equestrian – you’ll get to see the horses being put through their paces on site, and may be able to time your stay to coincide with races at nearby Goodwood, Fontwell Park or Plumpton. You’ll also be following in the footsteps of some legendary trainers including Josh Gifford and Captain Ryan Price, who both worked out of Findon, turning out outstanding horses including Classic winners Ginevra and Bruni.
There’s much to appreciate here even if you have little interest in horses. The village is a lovely place to base yourselves, with several independent shops, some pretty houses, four pubs, an excellent Indian takeaway and a smart fine dining restaurant that offers a discount to guests for midweek meals.
The property also has direct access to the South Downs for West Sussex walks and bike rides galore, and the seaside town of Worthing is only about 10 minutes’ drive away.
Back on site, you’ll be staying in a cosy glamping pod for two, with a double bed, an outdoor seating area and a barbecue all provided. Just across the path is a separate building (shared between two pods) containing a large kitchen (with fridge, oven, hob and microwave) and a toilet and shower room.
