Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Lewes, East Sussex your home away from home

The medieval town of Lewes lies on a tributary of the River Ouse which meanders through the scenic South Downs to Newhaven. The town dates back to the 11th century and earlier. The Normans built a fine flint castle and the ruins still dominate the town today. The steep cobbled streets are known as “twittens” and 15th century cottages appear unchanged. They are a favourite setting for historic dramas and films. A vacation home in Lewes is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside, the coastal resort of Brighton and the many historic castles in this lovely area.

Little gem in the beautiful countryside

5 of 5
Lovely lodge perfect for a couple. Huge comfortable bed and we'll equipped kitchen. Had air con which was amazing. Slept better here than I do at home😁 Owners Rod and Gerry very helpful but unobtrusive. Close to beautiful countryside and 20 mins from Brighton. The village of Hurstpierpoint is well served with pubs shops and restaurants. Nice place.
