Stunning country house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home far exceeded expectations; a stunning mansion over-looking the Sussex countryside with more than enough space and activities for a group of friends to enjoy themselves over a long weekend!

(The indoor table tennis & snooker table were a particularly nice surprise)

The home is large, grand and spacious, functionally it's well equipped with everything you might need and also has that air of grandeur if you're looking for something a little bit more adventurous (think Downton Abbey).

The location is fantastic; just 20 minutes out of Brighton (about an hour and a half drive from London), a great local pub and a large supermarket ten minutes down the road in Lewes.

Karen (owner) and Matt (estate manager) could not have been more helpful throughout the entire process; someone was always on hand email or phone whatever the issue and it really did make our stay that much more enjoyable.

This is the perfect house for a family or groups of friends/families looking to spend sometime in the idyllic English countryside.

Thank you Karen & Matt!

We've vacationed worldwide and Conyboro is 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Our first and lasting impression was "WOW"! Conyboro House is VERY impressive and more than I expected for the price and description. My wife and I have travelled with our kids all over the world and have never found anything to compare with the pure relaxation in genteel furnishings and beautiful surroundings as Conyboro House. And only an hour by train from Victoria Station, a few minutes from historic Lewes and many lovely small villages. A great pub is a five minute walk away, numerous good restaurants for eating out were found, and, if you enjoy doing it yourself, an incredibly well stocked kitchen is available. Everything worked and the nearby caretaker was available to answer an occasional call for guidance. We all enjoyed the heated pool and tennis courts as well as hiking over the extensive grounds. Entertainment opportunities range from the excitement of Brighton to the Glyndebourne Opera House.

Bottom line, we are still obliged to say WOW!! For just your own family or a collection of friends for as long as you have time available, I would recommend Conyboro house with no hesitation whatever.

Magnificent Manor House in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The house is huge and beautifully kept, larger than expected and very clean. Think Downtown Abbey.... Plenty of space to spread out, the kitchen is enormous and fully equipped including 2 dishwashers!!! The outdoor space is just as impressive. Lovely pool and tennis court and miles of endless paths and empty roads for countryside walks. The house is walking distance to the Cooksbridge train station which we easily took into London for sightseeing day trips. There is so much to do near by from zip lining for the kids to walks on the downs to a quick trip into Brighton by the sea. There is even a traditional English Pub right at the end of the driveway with delicious fish and chips served along with locally brewed Harvey's beer. Glyndebourne is nearby for some of the best Opera in the world (we were lucky enough to get tickets). Our family of 6 (including 4 teenage kids) along with 80 year old grandparents had an outstanding stay. We loved the property, had plenty to do and see and cannot wait to return! I wish we had booked two weeks!!!

Left a bitter taste

  • 1 of 5

Gorgeous property, but unfortunately the owner completely ripped us off and would not give us back a substantial sum of money because we had used one extra bedroom than we were meant to (just for storage and we were happy to pay for the extra cleaning costs). Best avoided.

Owner's Response: The traveler was a repeat guest to whom we granted a special discount for an agreed level of accommodation. The agreement was breached by using an additional room. The traveler was charged an amount commensurate with the accommodation actually used. We are disappointed that the traveler, having attempted to use an extra room without paying for it, has complained about having to pay for his actual accommodation.

FABULOUS....MAGNIFICENT... GRAND... AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Conyboro and are booking again for next year. It's truly spectacular. We barely left the house for 3 days - massive grounds, huge house, SO much space and everything you could need for a truly luxury big group break. Loved it. Many thanks to Karen and her team. Wow!
