We enjoyed our stay at Hesmonds Oast Lodge enormously and would love to return. The cottage is a beautiful old Sussex building , with a modern luxurious interior, with a country feel. Everything was brand new and spotless, comfy beds, warm and cosy bedrooms. The owner lives next door, so the cottage is completely self contained, but she was very friendly and helped us with info on local walks, and eating in the local pub, only 5 minutes walk into the village. We were there in December, so didn't get to use the terrace, which in summer would be great to sit out, and be completely private. A great place to hunker down and get away from it all, with Lewes and lovely country walks nearby. We'll be back !
