Situated in the heart of a beautiful rural village at the foot of the South Downs National Park in West Sussex, the Lodge offers excellent spacious self catering accommodation for two people. It has been built and furnished to a high standard offering quiet comfort and a relaxing atmosphere.
The design of The Lodge is light, sunny and spaciously open plan. The atmosphere is both relaxing and serene with secluded accommodation, decorated and furnished to a high standard using muted colours and French antiques together with modern luxury. The kitchen is very spacious and well appointed. There is a good size bathroom with a large walk in shower and heated towel rail. The bedroom area has a Super King bed with Eqyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels, cosy dressing robes. The kitchen is spaciously designed and fully equipped with ample worktops, a breakfast bar with stools under, a Fan assisted oven, electric hob, microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine and a fridge with an icebox. Ample storage cupboards, stocked with plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. The Lodge has its own air-conditioning unit. In the sitting room area, there are two small comfortable fireside chairs. The TV has a DVD player. There is internet connection, and a clock radio with an IPod charger and dock to play your own music. The double wardrobe is spacious, and there are other storage places.
Through double French doors there is a small private sunny terrace with a table and chairs for eating outside or just sitting enjoying your space. Access to The Lodge is gained through a personal gateway, leading onto the terrace. Or you may wish to take the picnic chairs onto the Village Green, just opposite, and relax there with your favourite book. The Lodge is somewhat tucked away, yet in the heart of a pretty quiet West Sussex village, with excellent restaurants and a 15th century public house selling locally brewed beers and excellent local wines and champagnes. There are also in the village a wealth of boutique shops. To take advantage of the self catering facilities, we also have a well stocked delicatessen, selling artisan breads, local cheeses and other delicacies, a fresh fish shop offering local caught fish and advice with cooking skills, a private wine merchant who will show you local and international wines and beers etc., a well stocked green grocer and a family run butcher, should you wish to buy food and cook back at The Lodge.
The village offers very good restaurants and quaint pubs one being an 15th century public house all within a few moments walk. Take a stroll around the corner to the boutique shops. The village of Hurstpierpoint offers beautiful country walks all around as we are at the foot of the South Downs National Park. If you would like to explore the regency city of Brighton or the historic market town of Lewes they are both close by. Glyndebourne the world famous and world class opera house is approximately 30 minutes drive away. Goodwood racecourse and Goodwood motor racing circuit are also only 45 minutes drive away.
There are excellent travel links to Gatwick airport and London by rail and road. Our self catering holiday accommodation has a mainline rail link at Hassocks railway station which is only two miles away. A very good local bus service is also available.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I am just about to leave the lodge after 65 nights here. I have relocated for a new job and needed temporary accommodation. As a frequent traveller who stays in horribly expensive hotels on business (that i would never pay for with my own money!), I am saddled with high expectations. The lodge is quite simply one of the best places I have ever stayed in my 20 years of travelling. Moving from a large home, I was worried about the lodges compact dimensions. I should never have been concerned. It has a lovely, stylish and spacious atmosphere that I have happily lived in for 2 months.
Rod and Gerry, the owners are great hosts. Which for me means "invisible unless required". They are a lovely, hospitable, charming couple and nothing is too much for them. The village is beautiful, there is free parking across the road and a little terrace. (3 or 4 great pubs, lots of shops, a cop-op for the essentials). What makes it so special? Top notch decor, quality bedding, pillows, towels, a great shower, the list goes on. In terms of Sussex and especially Brighton it offers exceptional value. Stay here rather than a bland "ikea" style apartment in Brighton. I never bother to write reviews for anything, but feel The lodge deserves a fantastic review because quite simply it is......"fantastic". Stay here. You won't be disappointed.”
