Whether you are looking for places to camp, a chic hotel or a cosy B&B there are plenty of accommodation options along the South Downs Way. If you are looking to extend your stay at either Winchester or Eastbourne (whichever way you decide to walk the South Downs Way), there are plenty of options there also. We've put together a comprehensive accommodation guide to the South Downs Way, comprising the best places to stay in and around the Way, to help make your planning a little easier!
Whilst the majority of the options in our South Downs Way accommodation guide remain very much on the route, there are a couple that require a little exploration from the trail. These have all been indicated clearly to enable you to plan your accommodation for your South Downs adventure.
We know that you will likely not be travelling the Way alone, whether you require somewhere to keep your bike safe overnight, a dog-friendly accommodation option or somewhere with a livery yard close by (or even on-site), our South Downs Way accommodation list has you covered.
If you are a dedicated foodie looking for an idyllic spot with renowned food along the SDW, we again, are here to help. Our South Downs Way accommodation guide indicates each location's key features, whether this is fantastic food, a pet-friendly spot or somewhere that has a luggage service.
