A great place to escape the hustle & bustle of Brighton. The reserve offers fantastic downland and sea views and fresh air in abundance. It's home to a thriving population of skylarks, butterflies and wild flowers. Enjoy a circular walk, a selfie at the famous windmill, then homemade cake at Beacon Hub's volunteer run 'Skylark Café' . Just three miles from the Palace Pier - frequent buses along the sea-front to the east, or hire a bike!

We stayed at the top of the nature reserve and walked across it frequently and at all times of the day and after dark en route for the town itself. Great scenery and views over sea to the windfarm and some great sunsets against the waves. A haven for dog walkers.

A lovely cliff top view which is ideal for sunset, and if you're into the wind then you won't be disappointed! The windmill is a highlight with a powerful impact imparts a sense of nostalgia much like the rest of Rottingdean village.

Watched as nature reclaimed this once perfectly manicured golf course. Now to be shared with dog-walkers and sheep. Nothing much more than open views these days but worth a stroll just for that' particularly if you have a dog to walk!

Some may think that nature does its own thing ?
But the dedicated group of volunteers visit the nature reserve twice a month and sometimes when the urge takes us, to conserve and enhance the reserve.
From ragwort pulling scrub bashing, bench installs and woodland pathway,step maintenance we get up to a lot on the reserve. Always with a sme on our faces come rain shine wind and snow its a magical place.

We stumbled across this wildlife haven by chance and it really got our visit to Rottingdean off to a flying start. You can access from a number of directions, probably by Nevill Rd is the easiest. Talking to others it is probably at its peak in early July and there were masses of knapweed, scabious and wild grasses giving nectar to marbled white butterflies, skippers etc. The windmill is occasionally open at weekends. Great place to relax. Thank you Brighton council for making it happen.

The reserve includes the old Rottingdean Windmill and Beacon Hub, where on certain days of the week you can purchase drinks and refreshments. It is a chalk grassland reserve with adjoining woodland. In Spring the Cowslips are magnificent, and later during the summer over 25 species of butterfly can be seen and many interesting plants. The area is notable for its population of Skylarks.
