Findon sits underneath Cissbury Ring, just behind the South Downs above Worthing. The village itself is nicely laid out, with a central square, fine houses and there’s a handful of shops too – a rarity in most Sussex villages these days. Findon is famous for horse racing, with it stables being looked after by two of the greatest racehorse trainers of all time – Josh Gifford and before him Captain Ryan Price, who was champion National Hunt trainer five times in the 1950s and 1960s. Under Ryan Price, the Findon Stables also turned out some outstanding flat racing horses in the 1970s including classic winners Ginevra and Bruni. The village is also the home of the great Findon Sheep Fair which, after a few stuttering steps during the recent foot and mouth disease crisis is now back to some sort of full health. The Sheep Fair itself dates from the 1780s, but there had been a fair in Findon since 1261. It must have been an amazing spectacle, with shepherds driving their flocks to Findon from all parts of the South Downs. It’s traditional for the sheep fair to be held on 14th September, although these days the event stretches out over a long weekend. The event no longer includes the sheep auction that was the original point of the whole shebang because auctioneers don’t find it cost effective any more.
Findon has so much to offer in walking distance of The Downs Stables, including the Village Shop which has fresh bread and pastries every morning ( and a post office and all the basic food stuffs) , the local butcher, Dee Dees Cafe, 4 pubs , a fabulous Indian restaurant that does deliveries, an AMAZING Fine Dining Restaurant The Sylvan Oak ( 10% discount offered to guests of The Downs Stables Holiday Lets midweek from Tuesday-Thursday).
5 miles from the coast and 19 miles to Goodwood Racecourse , 11 miles to Fontwell Racecourse and 15 miles to Plumpton Racecourse. There is also a good bus service to Worthing and other local villages and towns.
Getting around is easy by mountain bike, local bus service or car. If you get the bus to Worthing, then there are regular trains to Brighton , London etc.
