Looking for a leg-stretcher to push yourself and test your fitness? Try our South Downs Step Challenge where we’ll help you get your counter up to 50,000 in 2 days; walking on largely good paths but with plenty of short ups and downs, the distance will work out roughly at 8-9 miles (13-14km) each day. That’s not such a hardship in the beautiful Sussex countyside - go for it and prove something to yourself!

  • Head out on this mini challenge with an experienced leader to discover the beauty of the South Downs
  • Walks devised to meet the target AND be full of scenic interest
  • Be inspired to keep it up after your weekend, by some of the best walking in England.
  • Evenings in our country house where you can share a drink and re-live each day’s adventure.

Walking from the house, we step westwards along the ridge to the RSPB reserve at Pulborough Brooks and a coffee stop; we might have a goal but this definitely isn’t a route march! Continuing north we pass Wiggonholt Church and walk alongside the brooks to Nutbourne and eventually back to Abingworth Hall.

Now we’re warmed up we’ll test our fitness a little more by following the South Downs Way above Eastbourne to Beachy Head. After that the coast path past the Belle Tout lighthouse and over the Seven Sisters to Cuckmere Haven is simply glorious. Distance = 25,000 steps!


Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before making your way home.
