It sounds a bit obvious, and we have always known, but it’s now official that taking a holiday could help you live longer.

The Journal of Nutrition, Health & Ageing has published the findings of a 40-year study, which concluded that participants who took longer holidays enjoyed a more relaxed lifestyle – giving them better overall health and an increased life-expectancy compared to individuals whose work focused lifestyles left little time for play.

At Raylands, our peaceful woodland setting and onsite leisure facilities make it easy for our owners to unwind and escape the tensions of everyday life, while still enjoying all the creature comforts of home.

Stay active in the great outdoors with our leisure facilities

The country park is set within the beautiful Sussex woodland, a tranquil haven for wildlife and walkers. Our owners at Raylands love to make the most of our stunning countryside setting and outdoor spaces.

Dogs can safely run free in our large dog-walking field, or if a bit of healthy competition is what really helps you de-stress, you can enjoy tennis matches with neighbouring owners on our full-sized tennis court.

Relax and socialise at our Club House

The Raylands Club House welcomes holiday home owners, and members of the local community, to enjoy our fully licensed bar. Popular entertainment events include coffee mornings, disco nights, and live performers, making the Club House an ideal place to make new friends.

Our beautifully decorated garden lounge, with its large comfy sofas overlooking the beer garden, is perfect for catching up with friends and family. And for stress-free family meals, we offer an extensive menu including our delicious fish and chips (available every day due to popular demand!) and a Sunday roast.

Maintenance made easy

With Wifi and electricity organised by us, all you need to do is arrive and wind down. Additionally, our onsite launderette is a real time-saver.

However you relax – whether it’s having a drink in our Club House, snuggling inside to watch a film, playing tennis, walking the dog, or simply sitting on your balcony admiring the view, Raylands really does offer everything you could want to leave daily pressures behind and make the most of your holidays.

So if you think that getting back to basics in a beautiful countryside setting is just the tonic you need, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to show you around.
