Featured on Radio 4, Danehill House is a stunning large holiday
home in Sussex, dating back to 1550 and situated in an area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty. On a clear day the Jack and Jill Windmills can be seen on the

pollution. On a clear night the stars twinkle in the night sky and you can pick
out constellations - a treat for anyone who lives in a city.
Wonderful oak beams are found throughout the house. Impressive windows in the vaulted hallway invite the natural sunlight to flood into the house. The layout has been designed with reception rooms on one side balanced with a fabulous kitchen on the other. A large oak table at one end makes the space very sociable - with a beautiful balcony, when the windows are open, you almost feel as though you are in the garden!

Lewes is a wonderful place to visit, with independent shops and a castle and museum, there is plenty to do. Lunch at Bills is very enjoyable, in a lovely setting near the river. From here you can catch a train to Firle and make a day of it, walking back to Lewes along the South Downs.
A visit to Brighton is a must. It's a very interesting town with great shopping facilities. Wander through The Lanes long renowned for its antiques and individual shops, admire the architecture such as the wonderful Brighton Pavilion, walk along the Front and onto the Pier and visit its antique shops and cafes. Lewes (15 minutes) and Rye (30 minutes) are well worth visiting.
