About Lucy Krigstein
I live in London, England with my husband, daughter and son. We both work in London but bought The Old School in 2010 as we wanted to spend weekends out of the city and enjoy the English countryside at its best. We love the house and buying in the beautiful area of Icklesham, on the Brede Valley, with the beach a short distance away, was the best decision we ever made for us and our children. We both love travelling and are lucky enough to have visited many far flung countries and have brought pieces of furniture back with us from our travels which we've used to decorate the house. Our favourite past times are cooking, socialising with friends, playing and watching sports and skiing.

Why Lucy Krigstein chose Icklesham
We bought The Old School after falling in love with the area. We wanted a house with lots of character in a village with a great pub, close to the beach and beautiful country walks. Icklesham gave us all of that -its on the edge of the stunning Brede Valley with plenty of walking and cycling routes and we have the award-winning, family-friendly Queen's Head pub a few minutes walk away with wonderful staff and food. The picturesque towns of Winchelsea and Rye are close-by and there is lots to do in the area for all ages, whatever the weather. Being close to Camber Beach is heaven in the summer time although we can enjoy blustering walks all through the winter too. The location is easy to get to from London via road or train. Overall, we love the area!
What makes this house unique
The Old School, dating from 1845, is a unique property with great open plan, double height ceiling space in the living area and cosy bedrooms. We've completely refurbished it inside whilst retaining the important period features such as the huge fireplace. It's perfect for families too with the large self-contained garden making is safe for kids to run around in. We've tried to supply all the practical and fun things you need when holidaying with children. If you love good food, there are numerous fantastic restaurants in the area and the beaches of Camber and Winchelsea are a short drive away for all the beach-lovers. If you like an active holiday, there are so many options available from watersports, golf, tennis to bowling to name a few. There really is something for everyone!
