Great things come in tiny villages, especially in Ditchling

Great things come in tiny villages, especially in Ditchling

Very rarely do you get a small, secluded village which has such a thriving community and friendly welcome. That is something that the East-Sussex town of Ditchling can definitely shout about.

Located just off the A23 to Brighton, the small town and civil parish of Ditchling is situated in the Lewes district of the county just outside Burgess Hill. In terms of locality to big cities, the town lies within easy driving distance of London and just a stone's throw away from Brighton and other places dotted along the south coast of England. The various seaside towns scattered along England's southern coast are never far away.

Even for non-driving residents, local train station Hassocks Rail station connects the smaller town to other regions around the county and further afield. Buses also run through the town connecting it to Brighton and other local towns and villages. So although the village itself is quite secluded, it really doesn't take a lot to get out about. That's if you really need to get out and about, for a small village Ditchling really does offer a lot. 

Ditchling houses a number of establishments including two public houses, Ditchling Tea Rooms, two local convenience shops as well as a small selection of other retail outlets which sell jewellery, antiques and various forms of arts and crafts. The village is also home to two Sites of Scientific Special Interest. One is Ditchling Common which is of biological interest because of the variety of heath grassland habitats, while the Clayton to Offham Escarpment contains rare chalk grassland habitat as well as its woodland and scrub lands. 

With so much crammed into such a secluded, charming little village, it's no wonder plenty of people are looking for property for sale in Ditchling.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800748512-ADNFCR
