Beautiful room in peaceful countryside but with easy access by car, train or ferry. Foxhole Lodge is in the South Downs National Park with a bridleway at the back door. Ideal for walkers/cyclists/writers or anyone who loves tranquility, great views, hills, gardens (1.5 acres!) birds, cats, dogs or the sea. Easy access to Seaford, Lewes, Brighton & Eastbourne. Great pubs. On National Cycle route 2, Avenue Verte & Vanguard Way plus bus routes. 5 mins to Newhaven Ferry. Continental breakfast.

The space

Your attractive room is separate from the rest of the house up a private staircase with its own tea/coffee making area and separate fridge. Lovely views of pretty front garden, and horses in the field beyond.
Cycle friendly house with room to lock bikes & bike wash.
Comfortable king size bed with good quality bedding, and two types of pillow (a firmer feather one and a softer down one) to suit different tastes. The ensuite shower room is a little old fashioned but clean and functional.

Guest access

Continental breakfast, often with eggs from our chickens or home-made bread.
Other than breakfast, we don't provide cooking facilities except by arrangement, but you have a private tea/coffee making area and use of a guest fridge, and there are lots of places to eat out nearby.
Foxhole Lodge is full of character, complete with dogs, cats and chickens, and you have full access to our beautiful terraced front and back gardens plus summer house (ideal quiet space for for writers/students) and a wildflower meadow, in total over 1.5 acres of land forming part of the South Downs National Park.

We are a friendly family and there if you need anything. We can advise on places to visit, walking, sea swimming or cycling and lend you maps.

Really great place to relax and explore the country side in your stride and plenty of public transport to get about.

Pick this one!!! The room is immaculate, the family are lovely and the garden and countryside are stunning. With a private entrance you don't feel intrusive but are equally welcomed into the kitchen and garden with an array of delicious breakfast foods. Emily is full of information, maps and timetables and although tucked away in the countryside, amenities are close and public transport stops at the end of the road!

Great place to stay. Off the main road and perfect for walking over the downs or over the road to the beach, a nice walk into Seaford Y.ou need a car or use the regular buses. Good selection for light breakfast, especially if there are fresh eggs.

Emily and her family hosted my partner and I during the weekend while we were attending the Love Supreme jazz festival. It was just 10 minutes away from the festival site. That allowed us to have a good night sleep instead of camping like in previous years. Emily was very flexible in terms of arrival and departure time, and we were allowed to come back at any time in the evening so we could enjoy till the last concert. Breakfast was fantastic. It had lot of variety and it was great as well for my partner who is saliac too. We were offered fresh eggs from their chickens :) the room was cosy, very clean, with everything we needed including soaps, towels, and side table with teapot. Lovely countryside views from the window and very comfy bed. It really made a difference to our festival weekend. The family has cats and dogs, and chickens as I said. Very lively but peaceful. Would definitely repeat next year when the Festival is on again :)
