What a great improvment since the National Trust took it over. Lovely gardens, clean and tidy, didn't try the restaurant but purchased several items in the shop. Have taken three lots of overseas visitors there in the last six months. We ate in the deli at East Dean, less crowded and a more personal service.

It was extremely windy here but the views were breathtaking. The car parking was expensive and the coffee shop was closed when we were here but we really came for the view.

We loved it here - a stop on the open-top bus tour from Eastbourne. Lunch time, so we had a lovely cream tea before exploring. What views! The National Trust displays were great for fully appreciating the area and what is happening to our coastline.

We stopped here for a short break whilst driving along the coast. Ideal spot for a break with nice view. Cafe was a bit over priced.

Really nice little spot to stop and relax for a while. We used the time on the beach to nap and let the legs recharge :) Toilets available, good local icecreams and some nice tables. Lovely, but nothing like the pics on google earth lol :D

This place is great and with a free map we got from the information table, we were able to take a really lovely walk along the cliff top and back via East Dean which I would really recommend. There seemed to be numerous issues in the cafe however - locals were very fed up as it is the usual run... More

Fantastic area of the British South Coast to hike and explore. Amazing views and photographs of the chalk cliffs and ocean/Channel.
