Have you heard of a place called Steyning? You’re going to love it.
It is a picturesque village in West Sussex, in the heart of the South Downs, just a stone’s throw from where I live. We were lucky enough to do our Spring Summer 2019 photo shoot at local hotel, Springwells. Here are a few of our favourite pics, by the very talented, Abigail Evans of Monkey Snaps Photography.
What makes Steyning so special?
Firstly, the scenery is so pretty. Steyning is like a little oasis, nestled within the downs, where time seems to slow down, in a good way. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a weekend break, we would highly recommend it.
We are talking chocolate box village with a plethora of independent shops on the high street, gorgeous tearooms and a Cobblestone Walk of businesses under the central clock tower.
People smile and stop to talk to each other, something that is sadly becoming lost in the busy world we live in. It has a comforting feel to it. Its surroundings make it ideal for long country walks – or a paddle in the sea at nearby Lancing Beach - before relaxing at the local pub.
Steyning is full of hidden gems. Springwells being one of them! If you fancy a weekend getaway with the best of the countryside and the seaside, get in touch to book your stay!
