Never seen such a wonderful display of cowslips. A nice climb through woodland on a very steep path up to the unimproved downland. The display of wild flowers was breathtaking, but also if you look closely you see every millimetre of this land is actually supporting life and biodiversity. You can feel it full of life. We were so glad to have spotted this on Tripadvisor it was one of the experiences that made our holiday. Will be interested to return in a different season.

We parked up at he side of the road in Bepton village, not sure if there is a proper car park, but anyway in November there was virtually no-one around! No problems there. The walk itself was steep in places, pretty much completely road-free, and includes a nice section of the South Downs Way. The down has not been over-maintained, but does have a few meadows that appear to have been planted with a view to supporting insect diversity etc. The woods appear to be left to do their own thing. We had a lovely walk.

The SSSI is now slumbering in preparation for spring 2018. Then it will come alive with orchids and other chalk grassland plants supporting a myriad of insects. Meanwhile you may be lucky and see badgers, roe and fallow deer, hares, bunnies, foxes as well as many birds including red kites soaring on the thermals. A great place as it is access land. Many walks too

We even saw a fawn! Well sign posted and with the South Downs Way running across the top of the Down is the perfect place to explore. Great place to walk with good pubs nearby and the Park House Hotel for luxury.

I have lived in Bepton for more or less forty years and the Down under which the village is nestled is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. From March right the way through until late September successive carpets of special flowers are produced. At the moment the cowslips are coming through. Some are already in flower and then the whole area will be one big carpet of yellow. Hidden amongst them there are already signs of the common spotted orchids. There are literally hundreds of them. There are also several other types of orchids such as the early purple, the common twayblade, the bee, the greater butterfly, the white helleborine and last to flower but not the least the very beautiful pyramidal. A festival of little gems. Many other flowers are to be seen throughout the season including such things as eyebright and yellow rattle semi-parasitical plants that weaken the grasses which would otherwise take over. Then there are all the insects that depend on these flowers. Butterflies are everywhere. This is an increasingly rare sight. Bees and moths abound. Birds are to be seen. If one is lucky one might even catch a glimpse of a hare or a roe or fallow deer. I could wax lyrical about this hidden gem but feel poeple need to discover it for themselves. It is uphill but taken slowly even the less fit would be able to make it!

This is a great walk if you're fit as its mostly uphill. The views of the Sussex down lands are amazing and you probably won't meet a soul. The yew trees you pass are extremely old and the paths are ancient . At the top of the climb you will meet the south down way. you can carry on up or down , east towards cocking or west towards harting.

I live locally to Bepton Down, it's a Site of Special Scientific Interest (an SSSI) and it's well known for its various species of wild orchids, cowslips and other wildlife. This year is one of the best years I can remember for wild Cowslips so I thought I'd write a review and share this wonderful place so that other people can visit!
