Places to stay in West Firle
The Shepherd's hut sits just on the edge of Firle, one of the South Downs most iconic villages. It is a very private space, in it's own little meadow, two minutes walk to the shop and three minutes to the famous Ram Inn with Lewes and Brighton nearby
the hut is in it's own paddock overlooking the south downs, close to the pub and the little village shop. From March to the end of September i will only take two night bookings during the week end, in the week one night bookings are fine. Over the Christmas and new year period i will only take two night bookings and over Easter and the for the Love Supreme Festival a three night booking as a couple.

  • Fantastic space for a single or very snugly duo. Don't expect hot showers, ceramic hobs or electric. All off grid, loo in church cross the way. But for peace, rejuvenation, health and silence (apart from wind in the trees and cock pheasants calling for a mate)you can't be beat. plus the superlative Ram Inn down the road for breakfast lunch and dinner.....! If you can't get through cos of virus inflamation goggle peter Firle.

  • Lovely stay!

  • Amazing place to get away, and Peter was really helpful at communicating everything I needed to know. Would definitely visit again

    Paddy2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely tranquil setting 😊

    Olivia2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Find a stripped back, simple space with all that you really need. Wild winds from the Downs to rock you to sleep, rooks to waken you and primroses to greet you in the Spring mornings. (Plus a great pub 5 minutes walk away....)

  • It’s was a great 👍

    Anas2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very sweet and tranquil place, with a warm welcome.

  • The hut is nestled in a lovely spot on the edge of the village, and was perfect for me as someone wanting to get away from it for a few days. As Larkin says, "only the young can be alone freely" and whether you agree with this or not, as someone who is not young, and has a fair number of responsibilities, to have a soulful bolt hole to skedaddle to is a great boon. When I took leave of the place and thanked Peter as I left, he said that the hut was becoming a sanctuary for some. For me, it was more of a haven - for me there is something very boat-like in its compact, unfussy, recycled elegance . I look forward to clambering on board again.

  • We loved staying in Alison’s comfortable cabin. What a beautiful view! Great location. We would highly recommend to anyone wanting to explore the South Downs area.

    Jo2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Jackson’s Cabin is an absolute gem! Alison & Charlie’s hospitality is amazing, the cabin is the perfect escape for a weekend away from busy life. The flowers, homemade marmalade & extra touches were lovely, and we loved sitting by the fire after a long day walking. The walk down to the coast is beautiful, with great stops along the way in villages like Litlington. The Sussex Ox around the corner from the house is great for Sunday lunch and there are lots of local walks too! Thanks again, we’ll be back!

    Brianna2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cosy retreat in a fantastic location. 3 days of walking (routes from the doorstep) and trail running in the South Downs. The weather was wild and it was wonderful to return to a wood burning stove, in a homely, cosy and beautifully presented cabin. Lovely little touches throughout - even had scones and jam on arrival - thank you.

    Alice2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cabin in a beautiful location with everything you could need for a countryside getaway. The cabin has everything you could need from breakfast cereal and scones that were a wonderful extra treat, to the local walking maps which were absolutely brilliant. Would love to come back soon!

    Liz2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful relaxed getaway. Alison is a kind, generous and thoughtful host.

    Christine2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Deep in the country but reachable by public transport, Allison's cabin is surrounded by easy walks to quaint villages, pubs and even a brewery. Sparkling clean, warm and peaceful cabin, great for a writing, reading and exploring the South Downs.

    Stephanie2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We have just spent a lovely cosy Christmas in Jackson’s Cabin, it was our second stay and hope to return again.

    Madeline2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in Jackson’s cabin, the photos make it look lovely but it’s even nicer in real life - it’s such a lovely space, clean, modern and has everything you’d ever need, lots of maps, loads of kitchen utensils, board games, and the view out of the window is beautiful. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back, it’s definitely one of the nicest Airbnb’s we’ve stayed at, and Alice was a fantastic host. Would recommend for a peaceful weekend escape in the country.

Flat parking a short walk away. There is also a place to store bikes. South Heighton is perfectly placed on the edge of the Downs and within the South Downs National Park. Perfect for hikers and bikers, visitors to Glyndebourne, Charleston, Lewes (including the fireworks) and Seaford and festivals such as Love Supreme and Charleston Festival. Cuckmere and the Seven Sisters for walking and Tide Mills is just minutes away by car for wind surfing and a hang gliding school is 20 mins away. It's a small village with a couple of pubs to drink in and a fabulous pottery to visit. Buses and trains are nearby for Lewes, Seaford, Brighton, Eastbourne and London. A 20 minute walk for either or a very short taxi ride. The ferry to Dieppe is 5 minutes away by car. Seaford and Newhaven are great for seaside walks or a swim. Really good places to eat are a drive away but you can bring & cook your own food. Modest facilities for basic meals. We can make sure you have everything needed for a restful stay. The studio has amazing views so in good weather sit out on the decking and enjoy the sunset or snuggle in bed and watch the view as a train weaves its way across the horizon.

You can walk across the downs to Eastbourne, Seaford or Firle.
    We live right on the South Downs. From the studio it's possible to walk immediately up the hill onto the top and enjoy the scenery from the start. Walk for 1.5 hrs and arrive in the village of Firle with gorgeous cottages, a beautiful church and the best pub. The Ram. Or walk futher to the South Downs Way. From the studio it's possible to visit the sea or the countryside. Local trains can take you to Brighton or Seaford. Bloomsbury visits to Charleston or Monks House in Rodmell are best accessed by car but are relatively close by. Glyndebourne is a 15 minute drive. Below us is the town of Newhaven that is a small industrial working port.
  • The studio is comfortable, private, lots of space, a great bathroom, and a good internet connection. Rhoda is a very good host, available and respectful of your privacy at the same time. The garden is full of birds and rabbits. You have direct access to long hikes in the countryside. I had a peaceful stay and would highly recommend Rhoda's place.

    Alix2020-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Rhoda was super helpful and provided lots of information before and during the stay - my parents had a lovely time!

    Sim2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My colleague stayed at Rhoda's place and he really enjoyed it there. He has found everything you needed for short/long stay. The accommodation was perfectly clean and location was just amazing. He would happily stay there again. Highly recommended.

    Monika2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful and restful place to stay, cosy, stylish and spacious. Rhoda was a great host, very generous with breakfast and planet friendly toiletries, and the location and views are wonderful.

    Maria2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very stylish and cosy accommodation. Lovely supplies for breakfast. Hosts were friendly and quick to respond to communication.

  • We had an wonderful time staying at Rhoda’s place. The room and location were perfect and everything you could need for a great weekend away was provided. Can’t recommend enough would definitely come back for another visit.

  • Rhoda’s place is absolutely fantastic! A lovely little lodge with everything you need! Great view over the downs with some amazing sunsets and sunrises. Great places to visit all within a short distance from the lodge. Bed is comfy, appliances in the kitchen are good if you wish to cook and Rhoda will give you any information you need or require! Thanks for a great stay!

    South Heighton, United Kingdom

    Top floor, light and spacious double room with fireplace in character Victorian house with garden. The room has a comfortable double bed, painted floor, large bay window and original Victorian furniture. I am close to trains, buses, ferry, beach and hill walks.
    I am a yoga teacher and massage therapist so can offer you one to one yoga lessons or a relaxing massage in a lovely quiet warm space. I am also a great cook and will make you a delicious evening meal if you give me enough notice. The house has a garden and a really friendly cat. The house is quirky, old and a little inconvenient, interesting and shabby. I need to point out that the bathroom is in the basement and the bedroom is 2 flights of stairs up so it is not suitable for anyone disabled or infirm. I have had new windows fitted since writing the above so it is much quieter now but in the summer the seagulls can be noisy. So bring some earplugs if you are sensitive to noise.
    Newhaven is on the outside just another industrial small town but has a great beach and cliffs, is only minutes away from the Ferry terminal to Dieppe. Brighton is 30 mins away by bus or train and the historic town of Lewes with it's castle and ancient windy streets is 10 mins by train. I am only minutes walk away from the beautiful downs and river walks.
  • Suzanne is very caring and welcoming. She has a lovely and comfortable home. The apartment is close to the port so if you arrive by ferry (like me) it’s perfect. You have everything close by. It was a perfect stay for me. Thank you again Suzanne

    Ju2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Suzanne was a lovely and warm host and her home is beautiful and peaceful. It's perfect if you just want some time out or want to explore Lewes /Brighton (very close on the train). When I arrived I had a warm bath with salts and essential oils, a nice cup of tea and read one of her many interesting books. She also provided breakfast/tea and coffee for me which was a thoughtful touch. Overall I would highly recommend- Suzanne really is a suoerhost!

    Asha 2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A great stay in a cozy, warmly decorated room and house. Suzanne provided breakfast for us as well. A great spot for the Seven sisters walk. Thanks for having us!

    Lewis2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • After walking 22km, I was exhausted and famished. Suzanne ran a bath (with epson salt and scented trinkets), directed me to a delicious local fish platter and was perfectly pleasant throughout my stay.

    Philip2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had an absolutely wonderful stay. My room was perfect and Suzanne couldn't have been a friendlier, kinder host.

    Amy2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for getting to Seahaven Maritime Academy - 25 mins walk approx Good amenities close by, supermarkets / restaurants etc Lovely room, very homely - bathroom downstairs but absolutely fine! Thanks a lot :D

    Billie2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Suzanne was a super warm and friendly host. Her home is ideally located, a great place to rest whilst doing my course for a week.

Endless country walks on our doorstep and a cosy local pub at the bottom of the lane make for a peaceful, relaxing getaway.

    Rodmell is a very pretty, quiet village on the outskirts of Lewes amongst the Southdown Way National Trail. There are some beautiful walks right on the doorstep. If you venture up the lane you are right in the heart of the South Downs National Park with some outstanding views and amazing walks. If you go down the lane there is a beautiful river walk. You also have the Abergavenny Arms Pub complete with inglenook fire place and traditional oak beams that supplies some delicious, local, hand cooked food and drink. Pleas note, the local pub stops serving food at 3pm on a Sunday. There is also The Monks House that is a National Trust property which was once inhabited by the novelist Virginia Woolf. If you are looking for a bit more entertainment, you have Lewes which is a 5 minute drive away. There are some excellent restaurants and cafes there along with some quirky and interesting shops. Glyndbourne, Charleston and Brighton are also very near by.
  • My friend Marion and I stayed in the Snug for NYE this year, and we could not have had a better time. The space is adorable and tastefully decorated, and well situated if you are looking for a retreat, but still need to be connected to a train station (Southease). Last but not least, Lydia and Adam are the best hosts ever. Adam kindly offered us some craft beer, and Lydia was so gracious when we (don’t do it though!) missed checkout time. Highly recommend this gem for any occasion!

    Hélène2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lydia’s space is perfect if you are looking for a lovely cosy hideout for a couple nights. It has all the amenities you need and very comfortable stay. Walking distance to local pub for a roast and plenty to see in terms of South Downs way, Lewes and all the South Downs have to offer. This was perfect as an escape from London!

    Gabriela2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Woodman's Snug is a lovely place to stay - conveniently located between both Lewes and Brighton. It is a meticulously well-designed and looks exactly like the pictures. On arrival, we were presented with a guide with recommendations for places to visit and eat - also a short description about the family which was a nice touch. Lydia was also kind enough to provide milk, biscuits, tea and coffee. During our stay, Lydia and her family had guests around to celebrate some of their birthdays. We were pleasantly surprised when Adam knocked on our door asking if we would like to have some of the organic pizza they were making for the gathering - a lovely, lovely gesture! Would highly recommend staying here for a nice weekend retreat.

    Cindy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lydia' s place is lovely and cosy. Very well equiped and in a good location. We had a 3 nights stay and found it very comfortable. The local pub is good and easy to walk to. They also welcome dogs. Would definatly recommend.

    Deborah2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal place just outside of Brighton where you can escape the main tourist area. Lovely little village, not from the stunning Lewes and Brighton. Quirky, quiet, clean and just a great escape - you wouldn’t think you were on the side of someone’s house! Lydia was helpful and left us to it for our stay but had plenty of recommendations Highly recommend!

    Hannah2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely annex to Lydia’s house full of style and comfort. Very convenient for visiting Monk’s House and walking the South Downs Way. The Abergavenny Arms serves good food in the village. Lydia was very helpful storing our bikes and letting us clean them.

    Estelle2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little ‘snug’ ideal for a couples weekend away, loads of walks nearby and pub down the road. Place so nicely decorated and so cosy with loads of film options on tv and easy to cook etc Very private once inside but will say it is attached to the main house and entrance is in front garden

    Anna2019-09-19T00:00:00Z

    Dream easily in a bespoke 4-poster bed, and there's a second pretty bedroom. Come morning, wake to a peaceful hideaway brimming with character, art, and beautiful objects in this historic village. Pick a good book to take to the flower-filled garden, and in the winter light the log burner. Plenty to discover in the village and surrounding area, enjoy some of the best walking in the country. All within a couple of hours of London. Close to the Seven Sisters Country Park and the glorious coast and beaches. All this, and we're nestled within the South Downs National Park. Heaven!
    This bright and airy house is ideal for a relaxing break. The area has everything you need for a great walking or cycling holiday or just mooching about. You can just stroll around and enjoy all the lovely pubs and tea houses in the village. Alfriston has one of the best independent bookshops in the country - Much Ado Books. Badgers Tea House is just across the road - a wonderful place to relax (a 10% discount is offered to my guests). Well behaved dogs are welcome (not on the furniture or upstairs please) and they're welcomed in most places around the village. In the winter there is a log burner (initial basket of logs supplied). My house has many times been described as light and "cosy", and is filled with art and interesting things - this is where I live in between bookings so is very much a HOME and not a holiday let.
    The house is in a beautiful medieval village nestling in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The South Downs Way is steps away, while rolling hills, Friston Forest, Cuckmere Haven, and the world-famous Seven Sisters cliffs are not far off. With a wealth of different terrains, you can enjoy every type of walk, from a stroll along the river to a challenging all day yomp!. Walk along the Seven Sisters Heritage Coast or over the Downs. Or just mooch around the village shops and tearooms.
  • Whilst we weren't on holiday, the house and location are nevertheless beautiful and we would definitely book again when life as we know it returns to normal. Would highly recommend to those seeking the quintessential English countryside experience.

    Matthew2020-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jilly was a super host, always available to attend our needs. The cottage was a real joy to spend time in, full of personality, flooded with natural light from large sash windows, snug of an evening with the log burner. The village was delightful and the surrounding landscape second to none. Faultless!

    Ben2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable stay in a great little village

    Chris2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • When we arrived, the village was partially flooded and the main road into the village was impassable. The back road was totally clogged with people picking up their children from school and we had to drive for about 30 minutes to access Jilly’s place from the other side of town. For a while, we didn’t think we would actually be able to get to the house and when we finally parked, we were confronted with another flood that made us think we’d never get to our destination. In steps Jilly, walking her dog and randomly bumping into us in our moment of need! (We were walking in the wrong direction, despite her brilliant instructions!). Jilly showed us to the house and saw us in. She is super friendly and helpful as had even arranged flowers and fizz to be in the house because we were celebrating my wife’s birthday. The TV in the house is tiny and the shelves are packed with books. This says everything about the place in terms of how relaxing it is. We lit the log burner each night, put on music, read and chilled out. A tv free weekend that did us the world of good. On Saturday we wanted to plan a walk that avoided the flooding. Jilly stepped in again, after having messaged her, she popped by and gave us some great suggestions as to where we might go. We took her advice and had a brilliant walk on the Downs. I don’t want to make out that the house was without it’s comforts. It had everything we needed and more. The art was fun, the kitchen fully stocked - the dishwasher was perfect! We had breakfast in The Singing Kettle on Saturday and the village shop is amazing (proper quality local produce and amazing friendly service). The fact that the village was cut off by floods and water works meant it was super quiet and we found it to be completely calming the minute we arrived. Thank You Jilly.

    Mark2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, great host and Alfriston is lovely. Highly recommended!

    James2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful home. It felt like staying at a friends house. A relaxing place with such interesting decor. Jilly was a delight to communicate with and was very attentive. Couldn’t of asked for a better place to stay.

    Kirsty 2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Jilly made us feel most welcome in her beautiful home situated in a lovely quaint village. I thoroughly recommend booking if you are looking for a quiet weekend away filled with walks, pubs and nearby wineries to explore.

    Jessica2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Jilly's home exceeded our (already high) expectations. We've scored her 5/5 on every aspect of our experience. Her house is stylish, cosy and perfectly placed for walks, pubs and a relaxing break away from the usual busy routine. Jilly went the extra mile to ensure we had a top-notch time! We're already planning a return visit...

    Just a few minutes walk downhill from the South Downs Way ‘The Loft’ is the perfect place to retreat after a long day’s hike or cycle. With our local pub 300 meters up the road a pint and a hearty meal await. ‘The Loft’ is situated in a quintessentially English village where a 16th century thatched cottage can be seen across the garden and Virginia Woolf’s ‘Monks House’ is just down the road. You can't help but relax and unwind when you visit The Loft. It's the perfect get away.
    The Loft is a light, modern first floor apartment with its own private entrance and parking space. The kitchen is well equipped with all you will need and tea and coffee making facilities will be waiting for you when you arrive. Free wi-fi is available too. We also offer an optional 'breakfast tray' and fresh eggs from our own chickens that you'll see when you visit. Please enquire about prices and products when booking.
    Rodmell is a lovely quiet village. Whilst there are no streetlights or shops we do have a variety of interesting buildings and history abounds, from thatched cottages and the 12th century St Peters Church to The Monks House (former home of Virginia Woolf and now owned by the National Trust) and our local pub The Abergavenny Arms.
  • Lovely stay in a lovely space!

  • The Garden Retreat is a lovely, cosy and private cabin that is a perfect place to stay after a long and stormy walk along the coast.

    Anja2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Sparklingly clean, and very nice touches like charging cables , tea, coffee milk and water ... Although quite hard to find , Penny gives clear instructions on where the place is.

    Giancarlo2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully decorated cabin in a lovely garden in an incredibly picturesque village. Firle is a wonderfully tranquil place, and the local pub is well worth a stop in. A great place to sleep for a relaxing Sussex visit.

    Oscar2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent place to stay

    Ruben2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Penny's studio was very clean, pleasant and comfortable for the two of us to stay, and is located in a charming village. Penny was communicative and helpful about directions and things to see and do. West Firle has a beautiful little church that is worth visiting, as well as a cosy pub close by to the house. We had a great walk all the way from Firle to Wilmington to see the Long Man, which is highly recommended! Expect a long walk from Glynde station to the house if you don't have a car, and taxis are fairly expensive, but expect beautiful walks from every direction.

    Jack2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cosy place, not too small, quiet and peaceful, everything works fine, we ate at the Rams Inn, which was really nice, we were at Rye before and went to Lewes the next day, both are beautiful old towns.

    Tianhao2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

    This elegant self-contained Edwardian wing of the main house is particularly suitable for families. It features a large fireplace with wood-burning stove, large comfortable sofas and a private garden. The accommodation includes a double bedroom featuring 2 beds together which can be pulled apart, a double let-down bed in a corner of the large living room and 2 single divans to one side of the dining area. Perfectly situated for events at Charleston, Glyndebourne, Firle, Lewes & Eastbourne, as well as the Seven Sisters, the Downs & the sea. All linen, towels and cleaning are included.
    Pekes Wing is part of our 'Distinctly Different' Pekes private estate, centred on its ancient Tudor Manor House, and including other picturesque buildings like the old double-Oast House. Guests in the Wing can enjoy facilities such as the heated indoor Swimming Pool and Tennis Court, and stroll around and enjoy the extensive gardens and parkland. The Pekes estate, well away from any road, is set deeply into the very quiet and peaceful Sussex Weald farm lands (organic - no sprays), and has beautiful views across ancient unspoiled countryside. Beyond that there is the stunning coastline, the seaside towns, historic places like Battle and great houses and gardens. For children there are two nearby exciting adventure venues, as well as farms to visit, etc. East Sussex has great charm, and Pekes is very much part of that. The Wing adjoins but is separate from the Manor house; if both houses are taken the connecting door can be opened. It is very peaceful and snug, and has a charming 'column garden' to sit out in.
    The immediate neighborhood of Pekes is the Sussex Weald with its numerous footpaths and lanes running through ancient farmland and many little woods. Just a few miles away is the South Downs National Park, incorporating the stunning Seven Sisters chalk cliffs, wonderful sheep-grazed downland, lovely natural beaches, charming villages and some lovely houses - all of which has inspired artists and writers for nearly 200 years. The seaside towns of Eastbourne and Brighton are not far off, and it's a short drive to historic Battle, and the fateful events of 1066.
  • Our weekend at The Pekes was exactly what we were after, a relaxing and peaceful escape in beautiful surroundings. Kildare was a great host and went out of his way to ensure everything was spot on during our stay.

    Chris2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation, great country house, nice and helpful landlords.

    Kai2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • It was an incredible vacation, thanks to the warm and kind welcome of Kildare and the wonderful house we've stayed in. Everything was prepared perfectly well, we enjoyed fireplace each evening, visite a lot of nearby cities and places, the atmosphere in the house was exciting as huge history felt in each piece of it.

    Alla2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Guests can expect a wonderfully unique experience. All the properties at Pekes Manor are better "in person" than the photos might lead you to believe. The setting is what makes the stay so enjoyable. Rolling fields, and perfect tranquility. Our wedding guests stayed in all of the properties and loved their experiences. All amenities were as described, and Kildare and his team were a joy to work with. Overall, an incredible experience.

    Simon2018-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Having just returned from a weekend with a couple of girls friends in The Wing we are in awe of what a fabulous place Pekes is. The perfect place to unwind and get away from it all, leaving the stresses of family life and work behind. We loved the fabulous architecture, period furniture and artefacts that filled our home-from-home. As we sat in the hot-tub and then swam in the pool surrounded by lush foliage and mosaics we had to keep pinching ourselves to check it was real. Next time we'll be sure to make use of the sauna too. The Wing contained everything we needed for the weekend - milk was in the fridge on arrival and there were enough logs in basket to enable us to have a roaring fire on the first night. Kildare checked in on us the next morning to see if everything was alright and brought us more logs for a reasonable cost. Pekes really is a hidden gem of a place. We promise to return as soon as the opportunity arises.

    Jane2018-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous and different, set in a beautiful location. Couldn't have asked for more.

    Helen2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our family really enjoyed the week we spent in the Wing at Pekes. It was very spacious for the five of us. It was a bit cold, but we turned the heating up and the beds and duves were very warm and comfy so we weren’t cold at night at all. The kids loved the heated pool. The location was perfect for us, quick drive away from the seaside. Also we went for walks in the local area and had very nice Sunday lunch in the local pub, The Gun . We had a great holiday all together.

    Niina2017-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • The Pekes is a gem of a place in the Sussex countryside, and the grounds are absolutely beautiful, especially the swimming pool nestled inside a magical greenhouse. We had some confusion with guests staying in the main house next door to the Wing, which wasn't great, but Kildare and his team were very responsive, and his staff even gave us a lift to the station the following morning rather than letting us book a taxi. The team was keen to know that we were comfortable and happy, and that makes us want to return.

  • Caroline was the perfect host, i would stay here again and again. I had everything I needed, most importantly serenity. I have made a new friend and will be sure to stay again one day. I have no negative comments, only gratitude ❤

    Dolly2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline is the consummate host, and she’s thought of everything to make her studio room perfect. She very kindly accommodated my changing plans and was always available to answer my questions. The studio is light, airy, modern, clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The kitchen has everything needed, including an induction hob and oven/microwave combo. The only thing lacking is a freezer compartment in the mini fridge, but the trade-off there is that the fridge is absolutely silent with no annoying compressor noises. There’s a slight privacy issue with the foot traffic just outside the main window, but I found it manageable. There’s easy access both to challenging hill walks and level riverside walks, as well as historic attractions and plenty of shops, both chain and independent. There’s bus service nearby if you need to leave town, but the center of Lewes itself is just a short walk away. I would have been happy to have stayed longer if the studio hadn't been, unsurprisingly, fully booked after me. Highly recommended for a stay of any length.

    Teddy2020-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • I've been living in this perfect apartment for six weeks, and I can't find the words to express how well I've felt. The apartment has absolutely everything that you need (and more), the heating is fantastic, everything is new and it's spotlessly clean. There's no single thing I can complain about. Caroline and her husband are fantastic, they've made me feel really at home. I'm looking forward to being here again.

    Carmen2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Mark2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place to stay just on the edge of Lewes. It's really cosy but really well equipped with everything you need for a short break. Caroline was quick to respond whenever I messaged her and went out of her way to help us out when we needed anything. I'd massively recommend it to anyone and we'll definitely be staying again when we're next down!

    Matthew2019-12-02T00:00:00Z

    Totally unique, hand-built, cosy cabin with wood-burner, raised cabin bed, shower room and kitchenette. Fully insulated, with electric heating and hot water. Built by Stu & Aine from recycled timber we're in the heart of the town, just 2 minutes from the Station. Perfect for that romantic weekend away !! We look forward to welcoming you to our cabin, our home and our lovely town.
    We are in the heart of the town. Just 2 minutes from the station and 10 minutes from the High Street. Everything you might want from Lewes is a short walk away. Our Cabin is a unique and lovingly crafted space. In the main area is the raised bed, with sumptuous mattress, feather and down duvet & pillows and French linen sheets. We supply a continental style breakfast (granola, orange juice, fruit, toasts, jams, marmalade, berries, real or instant coffees and English and herb teas) for you to have at your leisure. The kitchenette has toaster, kettle, fridge, microwave and Belfast sink. In the drawers you'll find cooking utensils. There is a pull out table, chairs and double seating. The en suite shower room is well appointed and we provide free quality toiletries & luxury cotton towels. And there are lots of lovely little touches doted through the cabin. Relax and curl up next to the wood-burning stove and enjoy the views of the garden, or rest on the outdoor deck. The Cabin is well appointed and has everything you need for your stay. It is cosy (think a bit bigger than a Shepherd's Hut) and has lots of storage. It's a two night minimum stay at the weekends & Holidays.
    We are so close to Lewes station - it is literally just two minutes (yes - I've timed it !). If you come by car, we can help you with car parking. We overlook the beautiful Grange Gardens, and Southover Grange (handy for weddings there) is close by. It is just a 5 minute walk to Anne of Cleves House (Henry V111's fourth wife), the Castle, the medieval High Street, numerous lovely shops and cafes. It's a 15 minute walk to be out of the town and up onto the surrounding downs and into stunning countryside and a 20 minute drive to the beach and seaside. Glyndebourne, the world famous opera house , is just a ten minute drive away.
  • This little place is a gem. Location fantastic. So near shops. Restaurants. Pubs. Parks. Walks. 20 mins drive to a beautiful beach and coastal walk to seven sisters. Amazing views. Excellent hospitality with lovely touches. Great continental brekkie. Very clean and warm . Stu and aine are so welcoming and friendly. Can’t give a high enough rating. We will definitely return.

A perfect place for a weekend getaway and I imagine even lovelier in the late spring/summer when the garden is in full bloom (though the fire was equally as nice for our time there). Aine and Stu were great throughout our time and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Recommend!

  • Fantastic studio apartment with a lovely continental breakfast. Czarina and James responded promptly to messages in the run up to my stay which was very helpful. Would definitely stay again.

    Rachel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy and comfortable place to stay for a night or two. Well located for a stroll into Lewes. Recommended.

    Tony2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A snug little studio and good location to explore Lewes from. Close to the main house but quite private. Good heating and shower and all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Easy communication & check in.

    Celeste2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • James and Czarina’s place is absolutely gorgeous, it’s the perfect location for a night or two away to relax. The studio is quite big and there is a large bathroom, too. The decor is bright and stylish with a perfect spot to read your book on the sofa, looking out to the garden. The little touches like delicious breakfast and nice shower gel make you feel at home. Check in and out was so easy, as was the communication and responses. We will definitely come back and are already recommending it to our friends and family - thank you so much for having us!

    Lovely double room, overlooking the south facing garden with a glimpse of the sea. Adjacent to bathroom with bath and shower. Direct access to the front door and the only room on this floor so it's nice and private. It's a gentle stroll down into town, a steep climb back to home & a gentle walk up onto the downs. there's even a private yoga studio in the loft. Private yoga tuition available on request.
    The room is on its own floor with a big family bathroom adjacent.
    The Hanover, Queens Park area is lovely. It's colourful and quirky with lots of pubs, cafés, parks and a local organic market comes on Saturdays.
  • Very good landlord very welcoming room very good

    Jiayi2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

    Marc2019-05-12T00:00:00Z

    Beautiful barn, perfect for walkers, with a breakfast to set you up for the day. Also great as a comfortable, spacious base to explore the local countryside and cultural attractions including Glyndebourne, and the local Bloomsbury heritage. This spacious artist's home is located right on the South Downs Way, and only about an hour and a half walk to the coast at Exceat. There is a tree house for kids, swing seats for chilling out on, and the Cuckmere runs through the bottom of the garden.
    Lovely secluded spot, giving directly onto the South Downs Way, as a welcome haven for walkers, close to the picturesque medieval village of Alfriston, with its numerous pubs and tea rooms, and a short walk from the popular rated Sussex Ox pub. It makes a great base for a longer stay as there are loads of local activities and days out to be had in the area, and enough space to just hang out and enjoy the garden.
    Right on the South Downs way, and a good walk from the coast, there is also good access (30 mins) to Brighton, and close to Lewes and Eastbourne. The magnificent Birling Gap is a short drive, as is Charleston Manor, home to cultural icons, the Bloomsbury set,Glyndebourne is also a short drive away. Foodies can get delicious organic and local produce at Middle Farm which also provides great entertainment for children. Also Drusilla's Park is extremely close, an unforgettable day out for children with loads of activities and one of the best outdoor playgrounds I have ever seen.
  • Sarah's barn was beautiful - the perfect stop over on our walk from Lewes to Eastbourne. The hospitality was excellent and breakfast was brilliant. Loved it!

    Lizzie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah is a natural host and her barn is beautiful, the local area is stunning. We can't wait to visit again.

    Callum2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah is such a fantastic host and makes you feel so welcome. The fresh bread and breakfast each morning was such a nice touch. The barn is spectacular and is located in wonderful countryside with many pubs within 10 minutes walk. We battled Storm Dennis during our stay and the roaring fire kept us warm. This place is a great base for exploring the rest of the South Downs and I would highly recommend for a short or long stay.

    Robert2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Stephen2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay at Sarah’s place. The barn is beautiful, has everything you could need and is a short walk along the river to Alfriston. The hospitality is fantastic, breakfast was an added bonus and Sarah was on hand to answer any questions and give us tip on where to eat etc. Thanks so much and hope to visit again.

    *Due to current health concerns we’re taking extra care to deep clean the flat on every turn over. We wash all bedding , towels and covers on a hot wash, in addition to this wipe down all surfaces and handles after a proper clean with a bleach solution. We also have cleaning products on hand should you wish to use them.
    Our flat is a new renovation in the centre of Lewes, originally the beer cellar for The Red White and Blue pub built in 1827 it is now a light and airy, modern well equipped space for a relaxing get away. You have your own front door and the space is completely self contained. The kitchen has an electric oven, dishwasher and washing machine and all the items you'd need if you wanted to cook up a feast. Should you want to eat out the flat is in the very centre of Lewes so all the pubs and restaurants Lewes has to offer are only ever a few minutes walk away.
    Lewes is a busy town with lots going on, the town boasts a huge amount of independent shops and restaurants, The Needlemakers is a great place for shopping as is Cliffe High Street for antiquing.
  • A great central position to explore Lewes in all its glory, train station only 5 mins away but not even heard. A great base to explore the outstanding areas of natural beauty and historical sites that Lewes and surrounding areas have to offer. We were in the area for essential private cancer care so unfortunately didn't have an opportunity to experience any local amenities due to the lockdown, but there are quite a few pubs and restaurants which I discovered upon during my exercise and food shopping journeys.

    Chris2020-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful space which was spotlessly clean and very stylish. Anna and William are excellent hosts and were very accommodating. The village is beautiful and location perfect. We would definitely stay again. Thank you!

    Lea2020-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very central, beautifully decorated, and sparkling clean. We had a brilliant time at Anna's place and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Lewes.

    Courtney2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Roger2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Lewes, England, United Kingdom

    The Dower House is a historic building steeped in the art and literature of Bloomsbury. The former home of Quentin Bell, Virginia Woolf’s nephew and biographer, and his wife Anne Olivier, the renowned scholar and editor of Woolf’s diaries, it is the perfect place for a holiday in the heart of rural Sussex. This special house with its magical walled garden and breathtaking views is situated in the heart of the South Downs National Park, just outside Firle village at the foot of the Downs.
    We encourage guests to rejoice in the bohemian atmosphere of the Dower House, and not to expect hotel-style technology. However, the house is comfortable and beautifully furnished, with 4 bedrooms (3 doubles and one large single ‘bateau-lit’). The two bathrooms (one en suite) have bathtubs surrounded by hand decorated tiles. At the heart of the house is a generously equipped kitchen which features an inglenook fireplace, large pine kitchen table (seats 8), a modern range cooker and adjacent slate-shelved larder. There is a cosy book-lined study and a spacious drawing room opening onto the terrace and garden, with views of Firle Beacon. A large walled garden surrounds the house, with fruit trees, herbaceous borders and a small ornamental pond. An array of decorative art is featured throughout the house; marvellous pottery, sculpture and tiles hand painted by Quentin Bell, lamps and textiles by Cressida Bell, paintings by Roger de Grey, Julian Bell, Adrian Stokes and Winifred Gill, an assortment of beautiful antique furniture and a carved oak Jacobean staircase. With its fascinating history and unique artistic and literary associations, staying at the Dower House is an unusually intimate and enriching experience.
    The historic towns of Lewes, Brighton and Eastbourne are within an easy drive, with Firle Place and Charleston in walking distance. Other local attractions include Monk’s House, Berwick Church, Glyndebourne Opera House, Drusilla’s Zoo, Alfriston Village, Rathfinny Vineyard, Glynde village and the beautiful cliffs and beaches of the Sussex coast. The situation is perfect for hiking; you can see the sea from the top of the Downs in just 20 minutes, then follow the South Downs Way for miles in either direction. Firle village with its shop, pub and church is a short walk away.
  • Absolutely beautiful home and equally beautiful surroundings. A real treat to stay amongst so much Bloomsbury heritage, thank you!

    Alice2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house, great location. Highly recommended.

    Helen2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, beautiful time in the dower house for my dads 80th - walks on the downs, cosy fires and happy rifling through the countless amazing bookshelves. Very special & magical - many many thanks to the family and in particular to Caroline for all her amazing help and kindness.

    Emily2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house in a wonderful location. Very comfortable with wonderful decorative interiors.

    Liz2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is honestly one of the most special places I've ever stayed in my life. As a writer, it was an exceptional place to write, read and think. As a human, it is a warm and soothing space with all the grace notes and unfussy ease of Bloomsbury - it really feels like this house is an encouraging friend.

    Naomi2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • A magical house, filled with beautiful art, fascinating books, antiques, ceramics, interesting textiles, and great spirit. Every room is delightful, but we made our home by the fire in the kitchen and spent hours reading, playing cards, eating delicious local food, and enjoying the beautiful views. We loved our stay here and hope to return.

    Margaret2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is an incredible house in an ideal location for fans of the artistic life, the South Downs and especially Bloomsbury. Cressida has added wonderful touches to a home already steeped in Bloomsbury history, books, and ceramics and Caroline is such a welcoming and kind caretaker of this special place and the guests who stay there. My daughter and I stayed two weeks and loved every minute--I'm already looking forward to my next stay in May! Highest recommendation.

    Kerry2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at the Dower House with opportunities for long walks, quiet naps, cozy reading, and table space for 4 artists to work on their own projects in the kitchen. We were most delighted with the home touches and Bloomsbury connections, and after visits to both Monks House and Charleston we were happy to return to our own tiny bit of creative Sussex where we could touch, photograph, and sketch to our hearts' delight.

  • I just loved Lorraine’s place. Although the listing was not too big, it was very warm and cozy and it felt like home. Everything was neat and clean and comfortable. The additional treats set in the room was very thoughtful and I especially enjoyed the handmade cookies that were provided. They were simply amazing :) There was plenty of space on the driveway to park which was helpful since we wanted to go in and out to visit the seven sisters. Would definately recommend!!

    Eimi2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

( Linda also left us plenty of wood for the fire pit which we co9uld use whenever we wished. Plenty of outdoor areas to make use of. Inside, everything has been thought of in order to make for a perfect stay. The bed is probably one of the best we have stayed in ( making it hard to leave for work in the mornings!) Linda and Ron are just really good people, who have created a very lovely environment and are so friendly. Cannot wait to have another stay here.

  • Linda was definitely a superhost she was always available for everything we need. The area is perfect for those who want to explore the british seaside. And the studio was lovely with very nice views. Hope we have the chance to stay again.

    Lewes is a uniquely characterful town with quirky independent shops and an incredible array of pubs, Georgian buildings, cobbled streets and a medieval castle. There's a local cinema / cafe / restaurant called the Depot which is just as good for hanging out as it is for seeing a film. You can easily lose hours in the vintage / antiques shops and local food markets (Fridays and first Saturday of the month). It's a vibrant place for all ages - famous for summer music festivals, Charleston's Speakers Festival and bonfire parades. At the bottom of our road, is a park perfect for kicking a ball and a playground. Other amenities include a local skatepark, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, tennis courts, churches, historic buildings, music recitals and gig venues (The Con Club two mins away is worth checking for listings). There are various websites (eg. Viva Lewes) where you can see what's on.
  • Warm, exceptionally clean, extensive information about the local area and very comfy. The small kitchen area has all that you will need, with a high spec microwave. Comfy bed on the loft area that my teenage son thought was "a mental space". Sofa bed was so easy to use and good quality bed linen

    Christian2020-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful place to stay, bright, cozy, warm (in early March) and brilliantly well designed and equipped. We were made very welcome and felt truly relaxed throughout our stay. It's an easy walk to the High Street with it's great independent shops and cafes and there's a friendly pub a short stroll away. We will be back!

    Jane2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely clean and well equipped accommodation. Even provided a hair dryer! Friendly and helpful host. Suited us perfectly for our two night stay.

    Weena2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely two night stay here. Ed and Abi were great hosts and very helpful. The place was very clean and tidy with all amenities we needed and more. It’s a cosy space which was perfect for the two of us and the bed sheets were extra comfy! 😊

    Anthony2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing! Great location, and great space! The whole experience is great! Lovely local area

    Jonah2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed our single night in this detached, self-contained studio. Stylishly decorated to a high standard. Really comfortable bed with good quality linen. Everything you need for a stay away from home. Could accommodate two adults and two children easily. Great communication throughout. Would highly recommend.

    Matt2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is cosy, clean and entirely beautiful. It is in an ideal location; Lewes station and the town centre are each within a ten-minute walk and there is a little shop just seconds away from the cottage. It is removed enough from the bustle of the town but is still close enough to everything you might need. The idea behind my trip to Lewes was to use Ed and Abi’s cottage as a base to go to Sussex University campus to study at the library. However, the cottage was so beautiful, comfortable and homely that I did not go to the library once! As soon as I arrived I felt at home, due to the tasteful design flourishes and excellent use of space. The sense of homeliness was helped largely too by Abi, who gave me a really comprehensive welcome. Every base was covered; she was so welcoming, friendly, and took a genuine interest in me and my studies. As the cottage is still in its early days, Ed checked throughout my trip that I was comfortable and everything was working, which it absolutely was. The cottage was warm enough during my stay, and it was excellent that I could turn down the radiator if needed. The cottage itself is beautiful, and feels homely, cosy and close but not at all claustrophobic. This is down to the efficient use of space in its design; every area is utilised and fits neatly together, whilst still maintaining that effortless finesse and style evident in the listing’s photos. I particularly love the flooring, it is beautiful reclaimed wood. It sets off the entire cottage with real individuality — something I imagine is difficult in a space this size. The bathroom is also stunning, and its large size does not compromise the rest of the space at all because it is so neatly tucked behind the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything required for even the most adventurous chef. As well as the quality kitchenware, I loved the really luxurious cooking oil and sea salt. These little touches, as well as the stunning interior design of the cottage really gave it a polish that Ed and Abi should be proud of. I really don’t have any criticisms of the space at all; the bed is the comfiest Airbnb bed I’ve stayed in, the TV is abundant with entertainment, and the laddered mezzanine creates gorgeous levels in the cottage. I was properly looked-after and will absolutely be coming back. This cottage is criminally good value, and I don’t doubt Ed and Abi will be Superhosts in no time. Book this space up up while you can, because at a price like this I know the cottage will be snapped up.

A small but cosy first floor double room with low sloping ceilings, there is a small double bed, a little desk/dressing table, TV and Big views!
    Once an old cart shed 'The Annexe' has been converted into a self-contained two-bed house. The small double bedroom has a stunning view of the Long Man of Wilmington and long views across the Cuckmere valley. It is furnished with a comfortable small double bed.

    Only 14” drive from Glyndebourne Opera House. 5” from Alfriston, 18” from Lewes and Eastbourne, 11” from Exceat and the Seven Sisters National Park.

We would recommend making a reservation in advance as they can get very busy, especially in high season.
  • Elena and Gavin’s house is lovely and we really felt at home. The bedroom and bathroom were cute and sparkling clean. The breakfast (Gavin made homemade bread!) and view were amazing. Gavin gave us some great local tips for walking as we didn’t have a car - there is a lovely pub 20 mins walk from the house. Thanks again!

    Léa2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfectly lovely host, perfect view of the the Long Man and the Downs.

    Emily2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Gavin and Elena were great hosts, very friendly and gave us lots of local tips. The house/room is very cosy and with great views of the English countryside! The homemade bread for breakfast was also a touch we definitely didn’t expect.

    Mariana2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • The area, location and ambience of the house was beautiful. The accommodation was just as described and perfect for a walking weekend. Gavin, the host, was helpful and kind and we felt relaxed and welcome during our stay.

  • We loved our stay here, cosy/warm private room and en-suite in a beautiful home. Breakfast was left out for us in the mornings and we enjoyed eating with the views of the garden. In a very cute English country village and not far to drive to the seven sisters cliffs.

    Bridget2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • My wife & I enjoyed a couple of days staying here. We had a warm welcome and happy in conversation with our hosts who provided excellent local knowledge ( and maps!) as well as freshly baked bread for us to enjoy with our breakfast before heading out. The location is wonderful and provided some much need respite from city living! We enjoyed walks along the severn sisters as well as food in the nearby towns. Hopefully we will return in the not too distant future!

    RELAUNCH !! £32/NIGHT YOUR OWN FLAT 20 MINS FROM BRIGHTON....Cosy studio flat located in the heart of Peacehaven, though very quiet at night... Pull down bed, sofa, tv , wi-fi all there to be used...chest of drawers for clothes all situated in the lounge.. Light , clean & colourful for sure ! Kitchen has cooker, fridge, microwave & washing machine facilities all available.... Bath, shower, sink & toilet in separate part of the flat where clothes rail situated... Double glazed throughout...
    It’s a large/medium studio with separate bathroom and kitchen. The pulldown bed is a double and can be left down or pulled up for extra space..Dead easy to operate as is everything in the flat.
    The flat is literally a stones throw from the Meridian Centre...This is where the bus terminus is and the Coop superstore resides. It opens from 7-10 so if you need to pop over for anything it’s a 1 minute walk... 10 minutes walk away are the cliff tops of Sussex. There are pathways down to the beach and sea. Brighton is 20 minutes away on the bus or car. It really needs no introduction, however for sports fans like me, I can tell you the Amex at Falmer is the same distance by car though getting the train from nearby Newhaven a good tip. Eastbourne is to the West about 12 miles away. Eastbourne Eagles Speedway at Arlington a great way to spend an evening. All of the area is pretty much on the South Downs Way so there are hundreds of country walks to be had.
  • Simon was very welcoming, showed us where to park, told us the best way to travel into Brighton, flat was clean and cozy, very affordable too

    Hannah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Does exactly what is says on the tin. Simon was easy to contact met us with the keys at a convenient time and just let us to it. Excellent value for money

    Katie2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here over the New Year. Excellent spot, quiet town, Simon is such a great host. As advertised. We didn't travel with a car but had no problems with the busses.

    Jonno2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place that’s worth for it’s value and parking on the premises is alright as well. Very cosy neighbourhood and quiet, the apartment is also close by the supermarket! Enjoyed our stay here would recommend it it!

    Shawn2018-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Simon was really welcoming and easy going about everything. The location was easy to get to Brighton from and very good value for money.

    Sasha2018-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very easy time staying at Simon’s place. The location was perfect for us. There were days when we just wanted to take it easy and Peacehaven is a lovely place to stroll around, stop at a cafe, and explore the Telscombe cliffs along the beach. We also had several days out to Brighton, Lewes, and Hastings, and buses were very accessible from Simon’s flat. His place has plenty of character which we also enjoyed - we were even inspired to make an evening of kicking back and revisiting our favorite obscure music of the 80’s. We would definitely be back if we ever find ourselves in the area again!

    Sarah2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy little spot, great for staying in the Brighton at a reasonable price. Simon was wonderful, even leaving bits like new toothbrushes in case you don't have one (which I didn't) makes the time there much better. It's his own home and he makes you feel like it is yours as well once you arrive. Great value and a wonderful chap!

    Marc2018-08-10T00:00:00Z

  • The cottage is in such a beautiful, peaceful setting you will feel instantly relaxed! We loved the contemporary decor and the wood burner. Our hosts left us alone but responded very quickly to our questions, which was just the right balance. A great place for a romantic retreat, with walks from the cottage and a pub next door.

    Rachel2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • A truly lovely stay, gorgeous tea & scones on arrival which set the tone for a wonderful few days. The cottage is very warm & homely. It’s a perfect location for getting out & about. The little dog called in on us Sunday evening, I think she smelt the lamb we were cooking. She came in and was very friendly. The log burner was wonderful, we had it on both Saturday & Sunday evening. Really lovely cottage, full of character. Beautiful waking up to the fields out the back & even saw a few bunnies jumping around. Joy always replies with quick responses and allowed us extra time this morning to check out. Would thoroughly recommend

  • This place is one of the best places we've stayed at. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. The room is very private with a lovely view at the Lewes castle. The place is also just a couple of minutes away from the train station but you won't hear a single train. The room is absolutely lovely and beautifully designed. Fitted with everything we needed, there wasn't a single thing we thought we lacked there. Same goes for the private bathroom with a great walk in shower. The breakfast was also provided and waiting in the small fridge fitted in the room. Perfect if you need to leave early to catch a train. Don't hesitate to stay here, you won't regret it!
