Three Ponds is situated on the sunny sussex coast and is in an ideal location for young and old alike.
In the immediate area we have access to the South Downs National Park from the holiday site. The South Downs provides amazing walks, whether you are looking for a gentle stroll through nature in the summer sun or fancy the challenge of a trek over these rolling hills.
Just a short, flat walk down the road you will be able to get onto the local town bus which can take you to our beautiful coastline, take aways and restaurants, to the train station or to the main bus stops.
On the train it is so easy to get anywhere! We are only an hour and a half from London, 10 minutes from the historic town of Lewes and 20 minutes from buzzing Brighton.
The bus runs along the coast line from Brighton to Eastbourne and back again, so you can very easily visit our two cities and everything in between.
Brighton is a lively and vibrant city, often referred to as “little London by the Sea”. You can find just about anything in Brighton from comedy clubs and nightclubs to amazing places to eat, arcades on the Pier, miles upon miles of beaches, street performers, the quirky North and South Laines and of course the rather large shopping mall. This city is widely known for events, the biggest being the Pride Parade where hundreds of thousands of people travel to Brighton in head to toe technicolour to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. There is also summer music festivals, the Brighton Fringe Festival which celebrates theatre and performance of many different types and they even turn the beach into an outdoor cinema when the weather is good.
Eastbourne is another beautiful city on the coastline but is much quieter. Its has beautiful walks along the shoreline with stunning flower beds, bandstand with regular performance, two theatres, a shopping mall and Princes Park which provides a lovely walk with activities for children to do.
Lewes is a beautiful historic town with a castle, Harveys Brewery, many many quaint pubs and a few restaurants including the first ever Bills. It is a quiet and peaceful town apart from one day a year, November 5th. We’ve all heard the rhyme, “Remember remember the 5th of November, gunpowder treason and plot. We see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot…” and boy do Lewes know how to remember Guy Fawks. As the sun sets the streets are lined, the torches are lit and the fun begins as the 7 different Bonfire societies start their musical marches through the streets from the borders of Lewes to meet in the centre. As the march comes flowing down the highstreet the sky looks likes its on fire, the sound of drummers rings in your ears and the smell of bonfire surrounds you. They march to 7 different firework sites and light up the skies. It truly is something you shouldn’t miss!
Cuckmere haven, Beachy Head are part of the Seven Sisters National Park and are home to some of the most stunning views in the area. Just past the neighbouring town of Seaford is the Cuckmere Vally, here you can park your car (or get off the bus) and follow the beautiful, flat path past the meandering Cuckmere River to the river mouth and gorgeous beach that sits below the Seven Sisters Cliffs and on your way back why not stop in the quaint pub for some grub. Driving (or bussing) past the Cuckmere Vally you will find yourself on what feels like the top of the world, Beachy Head. Beachy Head is the highest cliff in England and the panoramic views are breathtaking. There are various places along this part of the cliff to park up giving plenty of options for walks, you can stroll for half an hour or walk for miles or you can just sit in the warmth of the car and watch the world go by.
