So picturesque. Great to walk out to the beach front. Only downside is the crowds at times so choose when you visit wisely.

Beautiful Cuckmere Haven! Worth visiting and walking into the haven by the side of the seven sisters! There are a few different ways to walk to the beach!

The scenery along the Cuckmere Valley is stunning and wonderfully unspoilt. Thank goodness the South Downs is now designated a National Park.

White cliffs, sea, beach, history, picturesque cliff top cottages, sheep, cattle & general rural idyll. And a spitfire flew overhead! Flat concrete path so easy to walk and push buggy wheel chair etc other than the last few meters through the gate to the beach

My wife and I together with our grandson often walk along the Cuckmere. There is always something new to see, whether it is in the rock pools by the sea or ground level bird's nests. Do come and enjoy.

There is a concreted path from the cattlegrid almost to the beach on the Eastbourne side of the river. Do enjoy the beauty.
