We decided to have a weekend away and chose to go to Sussex. My son's fiancée is from there and we thought (as she lives with us) that she, and our son, could come along and see something of her parents. Alfriston village was mentioned. There were several places to stay in Alfriston but The Star appealed most. On its website, I saw there was an offer in March for £59 for a room or £79 with B&B included (for two).

SPENDING SOME TIME IN THE VILLAGE OF ALFRISTONI recently spent a weekend, with some members of my family, in the charming East Sussex village of Afriston. We spent a busy weekend here seeing as much as possible in a short time. We intend to return as soon as possible to explore further. Here is a taster of the delights to be found in this old English village.LOCATIONAlfriston is near to the south coast of England in the county of East Sussex. It is by the South Downs and river Cuckmere. The area is one of local beauty and very popular with walkers. Also in its favour is the fact that the village is close to Eastbourne and within easy travelling distance of Bri...Read More
