Our Victorian home is a large semi just outside the beautiful town of Lewes. We are surrounded by the South Downs and have views in all directions. Our home is our haven and is a wonderful place to hang out, set off from and generally enjoy.

The space

We have 5 bedrooms. The en-suite bedroom is generally for our guests but we have an extra double room that can be used if families need more rooms (on application). All the rooms are in very good order. We are mad keen on photography and many of the rooms are adorned with some beautiful original pieces from a number of celebrated artists. The house is quite eclectic but hopefully to most people's liking.

Guest access

Guests have an en-suite double bedroom plus their own living room with a full Sky TV (movies and sport). They are welcome to use the kitchen for making refreshments and the dining room for breakfast. We also have a lovely garden and outside seating.

Interaction with guests

Lewes and Brighton have so much to offer visitors and we know them well. We would be very happy to help make suggestions and recommendations.

Other things to note

We are 3 miles outside Lewes, 1 mile from Cooksbridge train station and there is an hourly bus service that stops outside of the house. We also have limited parking for guests if they choose to drive. We are 5 minutes from a great country pub and only 10 minutes from the South Downs Way. Lewes is a fabulous town to discover with its incredible history, Bonfire activities and Glyndebourne.

House Rules

I'm not sure this needs to be spelt out but this is our home and we live here. We want our guests to feel at home too and enjoy their stay. We've had plenty of fun times here but if we have guests we would respect their sleep and privacy in return for ours.

We have stayed at Laurie and Wendy's place two years in a row, and made it our base for Glyndebourne. We love it; and we'll be back! The house is beautifully decorated, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms are really really clean, and Laurie and Wendy are fantastic hosts. We had a delicious breakfast in their garden, great conversation. Go stay with them!

Laurie is a great host, always going the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. Very recommended and also conveniently close to Lewes and Brighton albeit very quiet at the same time.

Our experience was great overall, Laurie and his wife were perfect hosts, welcoming on arrival, looking after every detail to make our stay was very comfortable including all amenities in our room/bathroom which we enjoyed very much. They were always available and happy to give advise for local places and activities. Amazing breakfast every morning which made a big difference, and much appreciated when you are away from home. We are very thankful for all the attentions they had with us and our little toddler, she also had a blast! and absolutely loved their cat. We highly recommend this place to stay.

Laurie and Wendy's house is beautifully decorated and feels like a warm and welcoming second home the moment you step inside. The bedroom/bathroom are exactly as described and photographed. We had a fantastic stay with our hosts who made us feel like friends and not like paying guests. When it looked like rain Laurie handed us his beloved umbrella (which we promptly lost) and blankets for our Glyndebourne picnic. He cooked a fantastic breakfast in the morning (that we didn’t know was included in the listing!). We had great conversations and will surely come back if only they will have us! Thank you!

Oh thank you for such lovely words! You are all super welcome to come back any time. We even felt a bit flat after you guys left. See you again I hope.
