About the Property

One bedroom, sleeps 2/4, centre of lively town, real food, good walks, great pub

The Bargemasters House was built in 1784 and retains much of its original character. The apartment is a typical Lewes property, cosy, compact and full of quirky detail. It is on the ground floor of the main house.
The front door leads into the charming sitting room complete with wood burner, comfy sofas. One of the sofas becomes a double bed. The kitchen is compact yet everything you need to self cater with a dining table for four.
The bedroom is next with a comfy double bed, plump pillows and cosy lighting. There is an ensuite shower room. Outside there is a small garden and sitting area. TV, Radio and lots of books make this a delightful and peaceful place to spend time, relax, sleep lots and then visit the town, there is always lots going on. Restaurants and good gastro pubs with real ale brewed in our town are on the doorstep, lots of antiques shops and little interesting shops to browse and we have amazing charity shops.
The railway station is seven minutes away and trains run into the centre of Brighton every ten minutes and into London every half hour. Public transport is excellent, buses run all along the South Coast and to delightful Georgian Tunbridge Wells.
