PawPrints of Sussex offer dog friendly short breaks on and around the South Downs Way

Our Pedigree

Taking the lead from our parent company - Footprints of Sussex - Pawprints has been created specifically for dog owners who would like to walk the beautiful South Downs Way with their dog. 

We are based in Steyning, the midway point on the South Downs Way and, for many years, were being asked to provide dog friendly walking holidays, but were unable to secure good quality accommodation. Thankfully we have now sourced suitable accommodation and can offer Short Breaks or a Full Trail Walk for you and your pooch... 

We know this trail intimately; We have been organising walking holidays on the South Downs Way for 25 years, and for the past 17 years we have been leading the Annual South Downs Way Walk each June between Winchester and Eastbourne. We run history tours for some noted venues here in Sussex, lead free local walks and have also mapped new trails such as the West Sussex Literary Trail across our county... 


As one of the leading walking companies in Sussex, Footprints of Sussex - our parent company - has some great options for enjoying the South Downs Way National Trail.

We will provide accommodation, baggage transfers, route maps and guides to maximise your enjoyment of The South Downs Way.


The South Downs Way

The South Downs Way is one of 15 National Trails in England and Wales. It was the first bridleway National Trail in England and is the only National Trail to lie entirely within a National Park, running right through the heart of the South Downs National Park.
100 miles of chalk downland walking separate Winchester – the ancient Saxon Capital of Wessex and England - and the Victorian seaside resort of Eastbourne. Stretching over a large area of outstanding natural beauty, The South Downs Way follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of The South Downs from Winchester to  the white chalky cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head.


Footprints of Sussex - our parent company - has a vast amount of experience of organising self-guided walking holidays on The South Downs Way. We have been leading walks and offering holidays along the The South Downs Way for over 25 years and each year in June we also lead the Annual South Downs Way Walk along the full length of the trail. 

That’s how we know the South Downs and the National Park so well.
Our self-guided walking holidays and short breaks on The South Downs Way will give you the opportunity to see some of the finest countryside and historical sites in Britain, including the great iron age hill forts of Old Winchester Hill, Chanctonbury Ring and Devil’s Dyke.

Pawprints of Sussex holidays is operated by Footprints of Sussex, the South Downs Way's leading self guided holiday providers...
