A stunning luxury holiday setting at the foot of Ditchling Beacon - enjoy the location! Beacon Cottage is so aptly named since it sits right at the foot of Ditchling Beacon one of the best known vantage points on the South Downs. This fabulous cottage is in the grounds of the owners’ home and within ½ mile of the picturesque village of Ditchling, one of the many springline villages that lie beneath the northern slopes of the Downs. The cottage is presented to an exceptional standard and is particularly bright spacious and certainly very comfortable. You’ll find the corner sofa particularly inviting following a day’s walking or cycling on the South Downs. In addition to the spacious downstairs living room there is a modern fully fitted kitchen and an excellent modern shower room. The double bedroom is upstairs and enjoys wonderful views from the roof windows directly to Ditchling Beacon. It really is some outlook. The cottage is full of local information and many books for guests to peruse. There is a beautiful and private rear garden that the owners’ are happy for their guests to enjoy with outdoor seating to both the front and rear of the cottage.
The small and picturesque village of Ditchling with its pubs and individual village shops lies at the foot of the South Downs. Its heart forms a crossroads which links with other nearby villages such as Keymer and Westmeston that also nestle at the foot of the Downs. Ditchling has remained unspoilt over the centuries and has many examples of period Tudor buildings. Wings Place is a fine Tudor building across the road from St Margarets Church once known as ‘Anne of Cleves House’. The house looks particularly imposing when viewed from the church with the backdrop of the Downs immediately behind. It makes for a good photograph. The village has kept the period tradition well and tea rooms and the village deli fit so perfectly into these traditional village surroundings. Ditchling Beacon is a short but testing climb from the cottage should you choose to walk it or even cycle up! At 248 metres (814 feet) it is the third highest point along the South Downs and offers fantastic views both along the Downs and north across the Sussex Weald. The South Downs Way passes through the Beacon giving you the opportunity to walk both east and west along this national trail virtually from your doorstep. Head south over Ditchling Beacon and the Downs gradually slope away towards Brighton. It is a vibrant city with much to offer. It is lively and bustling with a lot of culture and many say it is quite unique. One of its most famous landmarks is the Royal Pavilion the spectacular seaside palace of the Prince Regent (George IV) and the Regency heritage of this period is much in evidence in the city.
Seven miles east of Lewes is the county town of East Sussex. Its castle overlooks the town and is open to visitors as is the Barbican Museum opposite. In such an historic town there is much to see. Lewes is famous for its bonfire celebrations and each year these are attended by thousands of visitors. Visiting on the first Saturday of the month is recommended when a thriving farmers’ market takes place with lots of delicious fare on offer. Glyndebourne, the world famous and world class opera house, is a further 3 miles east from Lewes. Glyndebourne restarted and reinvigorated country house opera in England and today it offers unique presentations in the Sussex countryside attracting world leading performers.
Places to visit include Firle Place, Lewes Castle and The Royal Pavilion. Festivals include Brighton Festival in May, Glyndebourne in July and Lewes Bonfire Societies in November. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
