Strolling in Stanmer

sunday 5th june (27 of 49)

There is a hidden gem just outside of Brighton. Near the Universities, to the North of the city lies Stanmer, a teeny tiny village and a beautiful green space. A little while ago, on a sunny day, we decided to go for a wander.

It may be small, but this picture perfect little spot resembles postcards of the ideal English countryside village. With a church, ponds, parks and Stanmer House (which I’m assured does a lovely afternoon tea), there’s everything you need for a sunny Sunday afternoon out.

The dappled sunlight on an abundance of blossoming hedgerows meant it was nearly impossible to walk without stopping to take a picture every step of the way, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Next time you’re looking for somewhere new to explore in Sussex, I’d recommend taking a little stroll around Stanmer.

    Gorgeous pictures! I really need to pop along here, as it’s not exactly a million miles away, yet I only ever seem to go to places near to me, time and time again!

  • Oh my goodness, this is right out of a fairy tale… beautiful! I would do anything to visit, but I live far from the UK, all the way over in Canada! I’ll put it on my bucket list for sure, though 🙂

  • Stanmer is lovely, I know exactly where you mean and have driven and walked through it many times before. It’s such a little gem and such a lovely contrast to how Brighton can be 🙂
    Beautiful images 🙂

  • Lovely snaps, looks like such a beautiful place.

  • I used to live in Stanmer House when I first started uni and the park is just too beautiful. Definitely was the perk of living there! xx
