The picturesque English country village of Boxgrove is situated on the very edge of the Goodwood Estate – you can even catch a glimpse of the Estate wall upon exiting the village.
On your doorstep, you’ll find a host of scenic routes and trails, including that of the Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve, where you can go for a wander and take in the breath-taking views over Sussex and the south coast – not to mention one of Europe’s most impressive yew forests.
Reward your efforts with a pub lunch in one of the local eateries, or relax with a bite in the village tearoom, which is just a short stroll up the village’s quaint main street from the comfortable confines of your home.
If the lure of the local dry land isn’t enough, Boxgrove is just twenty minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches of the Witterings – so, pack a towel and a picnic for a great day on the south coast.
