Lewes, East Sussex
Elegant accommodation with cosy fireplace, lovely views and a large sunny garden in Lewes.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
This beautifully decorated and utterly charming 1950's red brick home is nestled at the edge of a quiet cul-de-sac, a quick 15 minute walk from the centre of Lewes. With six bedrooms and two reception rooms it would be perfect for a family gathering or a group of friends seeking a peaceful haven away from city.
On arrival you'll find a spacious, airy house, much larger than it appears in the pictures. The ground floor has two lovely light-filled living rooms where everyone can gather for a welcome drink and take in the art and pretty touches throughout. There's plenty of seating on elegant sofas and stylish, eclectic and comfy chairs. One room has a fireplace for cosy evenings on chilly nights, and is a very social area ideal for board games and reading. The other is great for movie nights with a TV set up for Netflix and Amazon Prime.
A beautiful vintage Danish dining table and chairs completes a very mid-century interior and makes a wonderful spot for enjoying a big convivial feast with the whole group. The galley kitchen is sleek and modern, wider than the usual galley and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, including some necessaries to get you started like, coffee, tea, sugar and spices.
When it's time to pick your bedroom you'll have six, over two floors, to choose from. Some have king size beds, some doubles and some twins, but all are equally lovely and reminiscent of the finest boutique hotel. With soft white sheets, crisp linens and fluffy pillows with lovely plush blankets, you'll feel very spoiled. The rooms will collectively sleep up to 10 very comfortably. The rooms share two bathrooms, both ultra modern with a bath and shower and there's an additional loo on the ground floor for added convenience.
Whilst dining inside would be a very lavish affair there is also a fabulous garden with manicured lawns, a pergola covered with trailing plants and beneath it a lovely outside dining area and a BBQ for sunny afternoons. When not dining al fresco you can pour yourself into a lounger and sunbathe or nap, or maybe settle at the little table in the corner with a good book. The garden is south facing so it's sunny all day long!
If you can drag yourself away from this idyll, there's some lovely walks to be had on the nearby South Downs Way and Lewes centre itself is lovely to stroll around and has plenty of independent shops, antique stores and bustling cafes to keep you happy. For breakfast, or dinner, you can't do better than the original Bill's, a lovely establishment that also serves epic cakes. If you fancy a swim you're only a 20-minute drive from Tide Mills, and don't worry, the hosts provide beach towels so you don't have to bring any. There are 17 pubs to choose from, but the hosts recommend The Swan for its atmosphere and food. And if you fancy a night at the cinema The Depot, a wonderful three screen independent, is a big hit with the locals. Pells Pool, the oldest freshwater outdoor public swimming baths in the UK, is also a wonderful place to spend some time in the summer.
Glyndebourne is just down the road, and a picnic on the lawns with Pimm's is an iconic experience. If you want a big night out, you're a 20-minute drive, or a short train journey, from Brighton where you'll find the wonderful Lanes, with all kinds of bars and clubs and enough restaurants to keep you busy for a month. Take a stroll on the pebble beach and head to the pier for fish and chips and fairground rides. And at the end of it all, head back to your peaceful haven in Lewes where you can unwind in style.
Our prices are slightly higher during July and August, and on bank holidays.
