Residing just a few yards from the water’s edge, and the edge of the South Downs National Park, this beautiful oak beamed, semi-detached farmhouse, where parts date back to the 18th century, has been divided into two holiday properties. This Grade II listed farmhouse originally resided on the side of a hill, overlooking a meander in the Cuckmere River. Polhills is the perfect rural escape for families and couples alike, providing ample room for guests to relax and unwind, or head out and explore this extensive location.
The reservoir which lies to the south of Arlington Village was built in the 1960s by diverting the natural course of the Cuckmere River, covering 245 acres it is now a nature reserve. Guests can spot over 170 species of birds including herons, kingfishers, woodpeckers, reed warblers and even ospreys form the bird hides. It is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and is ideal for wildlife and walking enthusiasts, as there is a path that circles the reservoir. It is also a haven for keen fishermen, as it provides some of the best trout fishing in the south east.
