BLACKCAP AND CUCKMERE VALLEY
BLACKCAP AND CUCKMERE VALLEY

Blackcap occupies 623 acres of classic downland experience with secret woodland glades along the ridge of the South Downs.  Known locally as Bracky Bottom, because of the bracken growing in the coomble, located only 7 miles from the campsite, you’ll be rewarded with scented walks in the summer time from the wild flowering marjoram, which grows in abundance over the hillside.  Access is via a lay-by on the B2116.ff

 

Further eastwards along the South Downs, the Cuckmere Valley, which overlooks the Seven Sisters, is a haven for wildlife, from over-wintering wildfowl to colourful wild flowers with the river meandering through to the sea.
