A building filled with atmosphere and very informative about its history, it’s defiantly worth visiting both here and Lewes Castle.

In October we stopped off here before going onto Fletching. It was a delight when you see the house for the first time it's just sitting on the roadside looking very charming. All rooms had story's to tell and when you read all the history...More

Enjoyed wandering through the tudor rooms, imagining what life was like. Really enjoyed the museum containing fire backs as we didn't realise there were so many types.Small walled garden to walk around. Friendly staff and small coffee shop.

This was a beautifully preserved Tudor house. Well worth a visit. The fact that Anne of Cleves never actually lived there did not really matter. There was a small museum about Lewes at the back of the house that was very interesting. Southover Grange Gardens...More
