The day is one long round of pleasure at this ‘luxurious but unstuffy’ Edwardian country house beneath the South Downs, where classic lawn sports and garden games make jolly the ‘gorgeous, well-maintained’ grounds.
‘Welcoming, generous, on top of its game – it’s altogether delightful.’ From the hand-woven rugs designed by a local artisan to the home-baked bread and home-cured bacon at breakfast, much is super-local (and just plain super) at this ‘stylishly quirky’, ‘beautifully refurbished’ B&B on the edge of the Old Town, say trusted Guide readers in 2016.
Striking coastline, a vast national park and historic towns
Attractions include Battle Abbey with its poignant evocation of the Battle of Hastings, Brighton with its long shingle beach and Prinny’s famous Pavilion which encapsulates the raffishness of the Regency age. Spa hotels, country hotels, charming reastaurant-with-rooms and tasteful B&Bs all make up the independently-reviewed Good Hotel Guide’s accommodation in Sussex.
While in the pretty county, vsit the ancient town of Winchelsea (where Spike Milligan is buried), the market town of Lewes, Rye (once a Cinque Port, now far inland) with its half-timbered medieval buildings lining cobbled streets, and literary associations with Henry James and EF Benson, Arundel and Leeds castles, Ightham Mote, Winston Churchill’s home, Chartwell, Glyndebourne opera house and Charlston Farmhouse (embellished by the Bloomsbury group). Walk, cycle or ride a horse in the vast, newly opened South Downs national park.
