This is an image containing a message saying that 15 Herdwick Sheep are now on the Reserve to thee West of the Golf Course and how dog owners should keep dogs on a lead near the sheep plus that there are signs up in that area which gives a telephone number if needed.

The Nature Reserve is easiest accessed by two points; South Hill Barn in Seaford or from Eastbourne Road (A259) at Exceat Bridge.

Free parking is provided at South Hill Barn, Seaford, the nearest post code is BN25 4JQ. From here is a simply stunning walk down Seaford Head to Cuckmere Valley, overlooking the Seven Sisters Cliffs and river mouth. Alternatively, there is parking available at the Seven Sisters Country Park, A259, BN25 4AD, that does charge a fee. This allows access to the Nature Reserve from the northern end of the river if you cross Exceat Bridge and access the Reserve through the rear of the Cuckmere Inn’s car park.

While there why not pop in to The View at Seaford Head for a refreshing drink or bite to eat, sit on the terrace balcony and take in the view.
