At the foot of the South Downs National Park, the lively village of Storrington is set in beautiful West Sussex countryside with wonderful walks on the Downs from footpaths just along Kithurst Lane.

There are numerous footpaths for dog-walking, one circling the edge of the village out to Cootham, the Crown Inn and the grounds of Parham House.
