Welcome to Seahaven FM's Newhaven Town website, the official guide to local businesses, what's on, and where to go.
The port of Newhaven links the UK to France via Dieppe, and the area is surrounded by chalk downland, which includes the famous Seven Sisters sea cliffs and the Cuckmere valley to its east and Peacehaven to the West.
Newhaven lies at the mouth of the River Ouse, in the valley the river has cut through the South Downs.
Over the centuries the river has migrated between Newhaven and Seaford in response to the growth and decay of a shingle spit (shoal) at its mouth.
There was a Bronze Age fort on what is now Castle Hill.
Throughout the Middle Ages, the main outlet and port of the Ouse was at Seaford (one of the Cinque Ports).
The growth of the shingle spit hindered the outflow of the river, which consequently flooded the Levels upstream and hindered access to the port.
Therefore, a channel through the shingle spit was cut in the mid-16th century below Castle Hill, creating access to a sheltered harbour, better than that at Seaford. However, shingle continued to accumulate and so the mouth of the Ouse began to migrate eastwards again.
The cottage in Newhaven is a luxury cottage that sleeps between 3 to 6 people.
The bedrooms are furnished to a standard with comfortable views over uk the garden and the surrounding area.
The kitchen has all the modern needs and there is a separate laundry room.
