Frog Firle Farm & Cuckmere Valley


Flower-rich chalk grassland with stunning views of the Cuckmere River

With fantastic views of the Seven Sisters, Cuckmere Valley is a haven for wildlife, from over-wintering wildfowl to colourful wild flowers.

Cradle Valley is a wonderful example of this species-rich chalk grassland, attracting rare and colourful butterflies and plants in summer.

High and Over's dramatic river cliff has been carved out of the soft chalk by the river below. In 1836 a white horse was cut into the chalk on the steep scarp and it remains a popular natural attraction.

Chyngton Farm was ploughed for food during World War II and artefacts, like anti-tank traps, pill boxes and bunkers, are still visible today.

Pass through Chyngton Farm to Cuckmere Haven and admire stunning views of the iconic Seven Sisters stretching away into the distance.
