Self catering holiday accommodation in Lewes

Accommodation near Lewes castleNestling in the shadow of the South Downs, the handsome market town of Lewes offers visitors a tempting mix of medieval history with a Georgian twist, indulgent cafes, bookshops and breweries.

Hike the hills or amble along the banks of the River Ouse (and enjoy a brewery tour of Harveys), take in the castle or hunt out antiques along the delightfully independent high street.

The surrounding countryside offers a wonderful opportunity to refresh on clean air and nature, dotted with pretty villages, with quintessentially English pubs and renowned restaurants.

Holiday ccommodation in Lewes also makes for a great base for the opera at Glyndebourne Festival.

The delightful village of Newick is just a 15 minute drive from Lewes and makes for an excellent base from which to explore. The village holds several country pubs, restaurants and shops.

Nearby attractions include Plumpton Racecourse, the Bluebell Railway at Sheffield Park, which also includes the famous Sheffield Park Gardens, owned by the National Trust. 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.

Lewes enjoys direct train links to London, Gatwick airport, Brighton and Eastbourne.
