It is situated in a rural lane that runs between Eastergate and attractive Walberton village. Both villages have ancient churches, pubs, playing fields and children’s play area. The lane has a variety of properties, interspersed with fields and paddocks, a few miles south of the South Downs. Visitors are delighted to experience the South Downs - dotted with villages and with Sussex flint walls and thatched cottages along the winding B roads.
