Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Lewes - The Lewes Townhouse

Three bedrooms, centre of lively town, real food, fabulous walks, great shops.

The Lewes Townhouse was built over two hundred years ago and retains much of its original character. It is a typical Lewes house, cosy, compact and full of quirky detail.

As you enter the front door, the well appointed kitchen leads off from the charming hallway. Everything you need; cooking utensils, oven/ hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, dining table, washing machine/dryer, lots of work surface and cupboards full of crockery, glassware, pots and pans and that all important coffee pot.

Upstairs is the living room, comfy sofas, TV/DVD, sound system, games, good books, restful lighting, lovely view to the Downs. Next door is bedroom one, small double with walk in wardrobe. All bedrooms have cotton sheets, plump duvets and pillows, radio and hair-dryer, decent mirrors, restful lighting.

WC with handbasin on this floor.

Upstairs to bedrooms two and three and bathroom. Bedroom two is the largest and bedroom three is compact but cosy.

The bathroom has a good shower, deep bathtub, heated towel rail, washbasin and WC.

The house is close to the lovely Grange Gardens where you will find peaceful places to sit and enjoy the stunning flower planting and a great little art gallery.

The railway station is two minutes away and trains run into the centre of Brighton every ten minutes and into London every half hour. Public transport is excellent, buses run all along the South Coast and to delightful Georgian Tunbridge Wells.

Thank you again on our second visit. I think we've managed to leave without accidently taking any bits of washing machine with us this time... Looking forward to being back at Christmas!

Perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely holiday house, perfectly situated in the centre of the historic town of Lewes. Easy to get to Brighton and surrounding countryside. Belinda and Peter have done the place up with love. There is a very good file of information and tips on things to do that they have compiled. It's got everything you may need. Strongly recommend for relaxing, invigorating holiday.

Perfect place

Brilliant location, and wonderful house. Belinda and Peter are charming and very helpful hosts. The place is spotlessly clean and there is everything you will need for a stay in Lewes. Lovely sitting room on the first floor, kitchen on ground floor and bedrooms on first and second floor. You are right in the heart of Lewes with easy access to Brighton and the surrounding countryside. Definitely, going back there.
