Telscombe Cliffs is a town in East Sussex, on top of the cliffs between Brighton and Newhaven, which was developed in the 20th century as an extension of Peacehaven. It is not to be confused with Telscombe Village, a tiny village inland and separated from Telscombe Cliffs by an open area of fields known as Telscombe Tye. Telscombe Village is six miles south of Lewes and contains the parish church. The A259 coastal road runs along the top of the cliffs, which are subject to erosion. There is a walk along the top of the cliffs, but following a collapse of part of the chalk cliffs, the path has had to be moved inland. The views of the cliffs are spectacular from the beach. There is access from the clifftop down steps to the quiet shingle beach.
Telscombe Cliffs is well served by clifftop pubs and restaurants. The Smuggler’s Rest is a country pub with rustic character. The spacious garden provides sea views and is an ideal place to enjoy the sunsets. The Telscombe Tavern is a local dog friendly pub and restaurant, situated at the top of the cliffs. It serves locally sourced food.
