Local Information about Plumpton, Sussex

Owner's recommendations for local 'things to do'

There are two lovely pubs nearby one is called The Jolly Sportsman, East Chiltington and The Half Moon in Plumpton both do lovely food.

Wagtail is located in a village of Plumpton in the Lewes District of East Sussex.The village is located five miles north-west of Lewes. It is near the South Downs National Park and to the north of the larger village of Plumpton Green where most of the community and services are based. Plumpton is probably best known for its race course.

Visit Lewes with its variety of restaurants, cafes and pubs with something to suit everyone's taste. Shopping in Lewes is a pleasure, browse the antique shops of the Cliffe, visit the Farmers market on the first Saturday every month, pick up some delicious local fare. Pop into Bills for a cuppa or something more substantial from the mouth-watering menu. Have a pint of Harveys, the local brew, and take in some music in one of the many friendly pubs in the area.

Situated under a 25 minute drive from the coastline of Brighton, Wagtail is within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the city with all its entertainment, shopping and restaurants, but far enough away for some peace and tranquillity. Brighton is a treasure trove of things to do and places to go. Vibrant, colourful and fun, Brighton offers the energy of the city and freedom of the sea. It really is unique. From the stunning heritage of the Royal Pavilion, Regency architecture and Victorian aquariums to the seaside fun of Brighton Pier, the Brighton Wheel and the famous pebble beach. Brighton offers something for every walk of life.

For those who love browsing, it's a treat to explore the Lanes in Brighton with their quirky shops and boutiques. The main shopping area of Churchill Square is only a stone's throw away. Brighton is renowned for its culture, with the Theatre Royal and the Brighton Dome there is an abundance of entertainment. Each May, England's 'city on the edge' hosts three packed weeks of prestigious premieres, international commissions, daring collaborations and memorable performances from the worlds of dance, music, theatre, visual arts, books and outdoor spectacle.

You'll also find a world of beautiful Sussex countryside, castles, country houses, parks, forts and gardens just moments from the city of Brighton. Recognised for its natural beauty the South Downs have also recently been awarded National Park status, which is the ideal place to walk or cycle. The perfect complement to a buzzing city, these areas allow you to escape to a scenic, tranquil world of down lands, footpaths, bridleways and byways. Take a walk in the Brighton countryside, on the bus, cycle into Kipling's Rottingdean or join a woodland trail. The opportunities are endless. You'll also find an abundance of plants, animals and wildlife both within the city limits and amidst the countryside around Brighton and Hove, all just moments from the city.

Why not visit The National Trust attraction, Neymans, a twentieth-century garden with a collection of rare and important plants, set around a romantic house and ruins in a wooded estate. The perfect place to visit with the kids or dogs. Other National Trust sites close to the cottage include The Garden of Sheffield Park, Wakehurst Place, Batemans, Monks House at Redmore, Alfriston Clergy House.

If you want to know more about Brighton during your stay at Wagtail, we can organise your own personal 'Greeter' to show you the sights and give you a personal insight into their home town. This can be arranged free of charge, in a variety of languages and can concentrate on your particular area of interest - for example the history of the City, or the best shopping areas!
