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.

Wonderful house.

5 of 5
I would like to thank Laura for her help during our stay and all the little things we were presented with on arrival. I wonderful house in a lovely position. My wife and I really enjoy the stay and our young girls also loved the playroom. Great location, great little town. Perfect for Brighton and Eastbourne visits as well as walks on the stunning coast line as well as rockpooling which the girls loved ! Regards The Wheelers.

Beautifully presented apartment - spacious and stylish living area and kitchen, comfy bedrooms, walking distance into Brighton and a stone's throw from the seafront. Friendly and helpful owner too - a problem with the bathroom sink was fixed promptly.
