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.

5 of 5
The landlord was very welcoming and helpful and provided us with plenty of information to make our holiday very enjoyable. The apartment is very clean, very well decorated and newly refurbished. We would highly recommend it to anybody wishing to spend time in Brighton. Sadly our stay wasn't long enough.
