A great walk with some excellent accommodation. My general comments are that it was an excellent National Trail with the highlight being the view from the wall overlooking Cuckmere Haven and the view along the Seven Sisters to Beachy Head. It was very well organised by Discovery Walking and I will certainly recommend your services.
