Top 10 best places to live in Sussex

Muddy Stilettos, in association with Strutt & Parker, has launched is 2023 ‘top 250 best places to live’, including the top ten in Sussex.

The women’s lifestyle website says the list is the definitive insider guide with expert local advice on where to buy.

It gives insight into the 28 most sought-after counties in England, guiding potential buyers to the local hot spots and up-and-coming areas including 10 best places to live in Sussex in 2023.

Hero Brown, the founder and editor-in-chief of Muddy Stilettos, said: “When people decide to move, they’re searching for more than just a house - they want a home, a lifestyle that works for them and their family, and if they’re strategic, a long-term investment too. Our 2023 Top 250 Best Places to Live’ guide will give them that extra reassurance they need to make their search easier in these difficult economic times.

“We’ve built our reputation on our first-hand knowledge of the most exciting, vibrant places to go and things to do outside London. Now, with 50 more recommendations than last year’s guide and new information added on important considerations such as nursery education and nearby culture, the 2023 list is a natural step for us to continue to expand our authority in this area. Combined with up to the minute listings of desirable properties, we think it’s a unique reference point in a turbulent yet hopefully resilient property market.”

The website says: ‘from quaint country villages to vibrant coastal cities, Sussex is bursting with charm and has its own, very quirky, sense of humour. Rolling hills and fertile farmland provide ample locally-sourced fare for fine dining and its vineyards are up there with the best the world has to offer. Culture vultures and activists alike can congregate in Brighton for a slice of city life secure in the knowledge a sleepy rural hamlet is only a stone's throw away, and London less than an hour by train’.

Each detailed online feature, focusing on an individual village, town or city in the top 250, comes with location map, up-to-date information on desirable properties available for sale and on-the-ground insights into top postcodes, schools and nurseries, shopping, culture, restaurants and bars plus the all-important commuting journeys for those still traveling into London and major conurbations.
