Bursting with chocolate box cottages and with glorious panoramic views across the South Downs, it’s no wonder the small village of Pulborough is officially one of the most desirables places to live in the country.

The reasons for its popularity are endless: nestled in verdant, rolling countryside looking over the Arun Valley, it is just a short drive to some of the most amazing coastline in Britain stretching from Chichester Harbour in the west to the dunes of Camber Sands in the East.
