In describing Lewes Muddy Stilettos wrote: "Lewes’ claim to fame is its Bonfire Night party, oops we mean, fireworks display which is the biggest in the country and legendary with locals.

"And the rebel spirit pumps throughout the town, there’s a strong artistic vibe with a touch of elegance.

"The houses are a mix of medieval, Georgian and Victorian and most come with a backstory – namely Anne of Cleves’ former residence and Charleston, a former retreat for artists (and some debauchery) for the likes of Duncan Grant and Virginia Woolf.

"With direct trains to London, the South Downs on the doorstep, the quieter beach at Saltdean nearby and the bright lights of Brighton are down the road you get the best of best worlds in this historic town."
