An Introduction to Lewes The historic market town of Lewes is framed by the rolling chalky hills of the South Downs and is full to the brim with exploration opportunities, making it an interesting escape for a traditional British holiday. Steeped in intriguing history, the town was once home to Anne of Cleves (King Henry VIII’s fourth wife). Visit the charming 15th Century book shop, which has survived the test of time and proudly sits on Lewes high street.

Spend an afternoon browsing the local antiques or pay a visit to the local farmers market to stock up on fresh produce and enjoy a homemade self-catering meal in your luxury country cottage.
