Holiday cottage, Newick, East Sussex
Great place to stay
"We had a nice welcome of the hosts. On everything is thought: Filled fridge, fresh bread, cookies, drinks, shower gel and shampoo... The place has all the comfort you can think about. Good and well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable bed with view over the terrace. A lot of information about East-Sussex is available. Good place to start walks along the footpaths in fields (with friendly sheep and donkeys) and woods. A good spot to explore the county, cities with nice antique shops, and the coastal area. "
With architecturally designed vaulted ceilings, the living area is spacious and bright with a comfortable sprung sofa (which can be utilised as a 5ft bed for a £25 supplement). Entertainment is provided in the form of a TV system, with Freeview channels, DVD and iPod docking station with Wifi available throughout. There is also underfloor heating in this area for those cooler months.
The kitchen is well appointed with a full size oven, hob and fridge freezer, microwave and a small breakfast bar available. With a dining table for four also provided there is plenty of room to enjoy an evening meal or a cooked breakfast.
The spacious king size bedroom area also has vaulted windows which have electronically controlled blinds to operate when night-time arrives. There is television, dressing table and wardrobe all provided in this room so plenty of storage for all of your shopping and walking boots! The bathroom is positioned ensuite to the bedroom and consists of a corner wet room style shower, wc and basin along with heated towel rails.
The sunny patio terraced area is access through full length doors from the bedroom and is a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine on those sunny Summer evenings.
Parking is available at the front of the house and there is space to store bicycles in the passage next to the cottage.
Silvergrove Cottage is positioned on the outer edge of Newick village with countryside walks available from the front door and easy walking access to Chailey Common. Chailey Common is one of the largest commons in the south of England stretching over 180 hectares and was designated a Local Nature Reserve in 1966. The common is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its heathland plants, and diverse insect and bird communities.
With Newick just six miles east from Haywards Heath and less than ten miles north from the county town of Lewes the cottage is well located for a lot of the attractions not just around mid Sussex but across the county as a whole. Drive just five minutes and you can explore over 250 acres of parkland at Sheffield Park with its multitude of paths and resting spots dating back to the 18th century. Copses of trees are dotted around the hillside, attributed to 'Capability' Brown and creating the English landscape appearance he was so famous for. While walking in the parkland you will often hear the sound of the steam trains approaching on the Bluebell Railway, and spot the tell-tale sign of clouds of steam through the trees. At such moments, it is easy to imagine that this landscape has remained largely unchanged for the last 100 years. Fifteen minutes further north and you can discover Wakehurst Place which has been cared for and developed by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew for the last 50 years. It is both a Grade II listed heritage garden of great beauty and a beacon of botanical and horticulture and nature conservation.
The historic market town of Lewes is a short fifteen minute drive from Silvergrove Cottage and it is a fantastic place to visit - full of cafes, restaurants and bars. The River Ouse flows through the town dividing it into two areas between Cliffe High Street presented in beautiful period style with its gateway, a paved bridge, crossing the river and the main High Street that heads up the hill. The castle at the top of the town is open to visitors as is the Barbican Museum opposite. It offers a peaceful area immediately off the High Street. In the town’s Southover district is Anne of Cleves House which is also open to the public. It was left by Henry VIII as a settlement in their divorce. Visiting Lewes on the first Saturday of the month is recommended when the thriving Farmers’ Market comes to town with lots of delicious fare on offer!
Continue on twenty minutes from Lewes and you will be at the Sussex coast. Visit the vibrant city of Brighton with its lively and cosmopolitan atmosphere or head further east towards the traditional seaside town of Seaford - there is something for everyone here!
