Location

The property is set in the thriving heart of Lewes, very conveniently positioned in Priory Street within immediate walking distance of Southover C of E Primary and Priory Senior schools, Grange Gardens, Lewes Leisure Centre, Southdown Sports Club and Lewes mainline station.

Lewes is fondly described as a small town with a big heart. Historians believe the name derives from the Old English hlaews ( hills or mounds ) as Lewes is built into the slopes either side of the Ouse Valley. Lewes is a great place to shop with so many independent, antique and quirky shops. It is also the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat or a drink in one of the eclectic number of pubs. There are three supermarkets, the acclaimed independent Depot cinema, leisure centre, tertiary college, along with well attended primary and senior schools immediately to hand. The Universities of Sussex and Brighton and the coast at Brighton are found 6 and 9 miles away respectively and the famous Glyndebourne Opera House is about 4 miles away on the outskirts of Ringmer. Lewes is situated just off the South Downs way within the magnificent South Downs National Park which is a paradise for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.
