Antique-lovers heaven for Easter in Lewes
With Easter less than two weeks away and spring in the air – the blossom is out and the sun has some warmth in it again – now’s the time to book a break away to take advantage of that long Bank Holiday. Short Stay Lewes properties still have some availability, so check out our lovely places.
All Short Stay Lewes bed and breakfasts and studios make perfect bases for visiting East Sussex and particularly the popular antique shops that are in abundance in
. It’s easy to spend the whole day in this historic town just wandering round all these. Imagine strolling through the cobbled streets, checking out the shop windows. If you are on the hunt for something particular, what’s more exciting that the anticipation of finding something exquisite – the perfect piece for your living room or a painting for your hall wall? You’ll find everything from trinkets and objects d’art to antique furniture, even pieces that have been restored. Deal done, you can stop for a coffee – there is lots of choice of cafes for a drink – or try out one of Lewes’ many eateries for lunch.
You might need another day just to take in all the sites. Near the top of the High Street, there’s the castle to visit. In Southover, there’s Anne of Cleves’ house as well as the beautiful Southover Grange Gardens, which are worth walking through or taking some time out to sit and relax.
With more days to relax and enjoy your break, there’s plenty to do outside of Lewes. You can easily fill another day just in Brighton with a trip to the Lanes, a visit to Brighton Pavilion and seeing the area from above by going up the new British Airways i360 observation tower on the seafront. A ramble on the South Downs and a walk at the Cuckmere Valley are great ways to enjoy the Sussex countryside and there are lots of National Trust properties in the area too to keep you busy.
All in all, four days over Easter in Sussex can be as packed or as relaxing as you want. Just make sure you find somewhere lovely to use as your base – and with the fabulous accommodation options available at Short Stay Lewes, that is easily sorted!
