About Telscombe

The tranquillity of this attractive little village is owed to its seclusion. Telscombe rests in a fold of beautiful Sussex countryside, and the fact that it is difficult to reach from the coast, adds to its charms.

Being virtually surrounded by miles of chalk paths from which there are stunning views over both sea and beautiful grassy downland, Telscombe makes an ideal destination for those who enjoy fresh sea breezes and a bracing walk. In the village there are pretty 18th-century cottages to be seen as well as the ancient church of St.Lawrence which is built on land given by Eldred, brother of Edmund, in the year 966. Overlooking the channel you will find an attractive, welcoming pub, where you can enjoy a pleasant drink and part-take of a tasty meal. Rodmell, makes an interesting visit, it was the home of Virginia Woolf and can be found a short distance away from the village.

Telscombe, has sweeping chalky white cliffs which have been carved by the turbulent seas of centuries. The cliffs are fronted by a shingle beach and topped by springy turf over-which seabirds hover as they swoop to take food from the sea.

The village offers a quiet retreat close to Peacehaven, Rottingdean and Brighton. There is a range of friendly B & B's and a Youth Hostel.
