About YHA Telscombe

Enjoy a cheap family break and unwind in the picturesque surroundings of this rural retreat. The 18th century cottages, based in the tiny village of Telscombe, are a great base to explore the chalk paths and uninterrupted views over the South Downs - perfect walking and cycling territory. Visit Virginia Woolf’s house, Rodmell, and Charleston Farmhouse, the former residence of artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. If you're looking for a day by the sea, Brighton is within walking distance for a day out. YHA Telescombe has everything you need for a great family holiday on the South coast.

This property is also available for Exclusive Hire during the winter months. Click here for more details.

Manager recommends

  • For a gentle stroll or something more challenging on your walking holiday, try the South Downs Way and choose your own pace and distance. Brighton and Eastbourne are within easy reach as well, so this rural retreat will suit anyone looking for a combination of coast, countryside and town for their family break.
