About Willingdon

Self catering accommodation in Willingdon

Short let accommodation is becoming increasingly popular for those working away from home and for those between houses or if there home is temporarily out of  action.

Willingdon Village sits in a pretty location close to Eastbourne, Lewes, Bexhill on Sea and Brighton, next to the South Downs.

The surrounding countryside provides a picturesque backdrop to the self catering accommodation in Willingdon.

Willingdon Village hosts a number of useful services including two village pubs, restaurants, shops and post office.

Willingdon was the base for the local village of the same name in George Orwell’s Animal Farm whilst Jevington lies between Polegate and Friston. Both providea a range of services with pubs, cafes and shops. Jevington but is founded upon the historic church which dates back to around 900AD and provided refuge from maruading Vikings.

The area was well known for smuggling with Jevington Jigg, a reknown smuggler, storing contraband in the cellar of The Rectory after it was unloaded at nearby Birling Gap, at the foot of Beachy Head.

During the Second World War Winston Churchill visited Jevington as part of final demonstrations of the Churchill tank above the village in 1940.

Any trip to Jevington and Willingdon should also take in The Long Man of Wilmington, the mysterious guardian of the South Downs, who has baffled archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years after being discovered in 1710.
