Situated on a working farm close to Devil’s Dyke in the South Downs National Park Dark Sky area, Foot of the Downs is a small, peaceful glamping site that is perfect for sitting by the firepit to stargaze.
The location offers two self-contained glamping pods and a shepherd’s hut close to the South Downs Way, perfect for walking by day and stargazing by night.
Stay & gaze - this location benefits from dark skies, relatively low levels of light pollution, is astronomy friendly and suitable for stargazing breaks.
