Nestled at the foot of the South Downs, Hassocks has all the quality of life of a semi-rural location with the convenience of easy commuting. Great schools, a unique selection of properties with gardens and parking, and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors can be found here.

Many of the houses here have stunning views of the South Downs, and the surrounding villages of Hurstpierpoint, Ditchling, Albourne, and Sayers Common also offer easy access to the rolling countryside for keen walkers, cyclists, horse riders and dog owners.

Hassocks has a bustling High Street, with great restaurants, coffee shops, and eclectic shops selling gifts, clothing, jewellery, vintage furniture and more. Theres also a monthly Farmers Market in Hassocks, where you can sample and buy delicious local produce. Theres plenty of social clubs and societies to join, from a ramblers club to archery, tennis, a film society, bridge club, dance clubs, and a jazz club.

All this and a mainline station with fast and frequent services to London and the South Coast make Hassocks a superb place for people of all ages and stages to put down roots.
