Oh hi there! Sending you a sunny welcome to the Sussex edition of Muddy Stilettos. I’m Rebecca, editor for the county and come complete with a passion for watching sunsets on the beach, country walks via a vineyard (obviously) that end with a pub lunch (obviously, again). And it’s a pleasure to share my local discoveries with you.
I’m no fan of clichés, but I became one when I left London for Sussex three years ago craving an outdoorsy lifestyle with a spritz of glamour. With 20 years experience at national titles including Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire, I’m here to hunt out Sussex’s secret hideaways, the newest foodie finds and boutique bars, plus fun things for all the family (including furry members) and much much more.
Muddy Sussex is, of course, part of Muddy Stilettos – which first tottered into the world in Summer 2013 as a bit of fun for the founder, Hero Brown over in Bucks & Oxon. The idea was a simple one: to write a witty but indispensable local guide to the very best restaurants, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events. Along with Muddy Stilettos Sussex there are now 28 Muddy counties, all with a focus on the quirky, unique, cool and interesting; so no advertorial, no PR guff and a genuine, upbeat honesty.
This is the Muddy Mantra, so you know what to expect from Muddy Sussex:
