Countryside retreat set in private grounds in Newick, near Lewes

Surrounded by rolling hills and rural lanes, you will feel urban strains fade away, with birdsong therapy and greenery providing the perfect antidote to busy lifestyles.

This characterful country cottage is split over two floors and sleeps up to six across its two bedrooms.    The downstairs bedroom has a double bed and a single bed, while the open plan loft room boasts a double and two single beds.  There is also a shower room, with toilet, on each level.

The open plan, ground floor living space is set around a central, circular wooden stairway which leads to the attic bedroom.

At one side, a fully equipped kitchen has everything you need for a self catering holiday – oven, hob, fridge, microwave and washing machine. A cosy lounge area includes a sofa, armchair and flatscreen TV, set around the welcoming, wood-burning stove (although central heating is also provided). The dining table comfortably seats six and is strategically placed by the windows, so you can enjoy the fabulous views over the grounds.

Outside you’ll enjoy your own veranda, complete with patio furniture for al fresco dining when the weather is kind.  This is a wonderful setting for young and old, surrounded by wildlife, with chickens, geese, ducks and even Kevin the peacock all to be found in the grounds – and more beckoning in the woods with its pond beyond.

All linen and towels for this self catering cottage near Lewes are included, together with welcome goodies such as milk, tea, coffee and sugar, and there is ample free parking in the grounds.

The online weekly booking prices shown are for up to two people, using just one of the bedrooms. For each extra person, there is a supplement of £50 per week, up to a maximum of six people.    If two people wish to use both bedrooms, they can simply pay a third person supplement.

The delightful village of Newick, near the South Downs, is 20 minutes from Brighton and 10 minutes from Lewes. The village holds several country pubs, restaurants and shops.

Head west to the equally picturesque gardens at Borde Hill whilst also nearby is the village of Ardingly with the South of England Showground, home to the South of England Show each June, and various other events throughout the year.  Whilst in Ardingly you could consider visiting Wakehurst Place, with strong connections to Kew Gardens.

Ashdown Forest is also a short distance away, with 14,000 acres of lowland heathland and woods provides a unique habitat for many species of flora and fauna, and, of course, is the ‘home’ of Winnie the Pooh! For those who love walking or cycling there are miles of trails to explore and views that carry the eye south towards the South Downs.

Just outside Lewes is Glyndebourne, the world famous opera house where opera has been held annually since 1934.
