Try a mid-Sussex getaway in this cosy Scandinavian lodge with private pool

For those looking for somewhere comfortable but not too compact for a relaxing getaway, then Skansen is just perfectly placed for you to explore both to the east and west across Sussex. This Scandinavian lodge is very comfortable and guests also have use of a private outdoor swimming pool between the months of June and September.

The lodge is located within the grounds of the owner's home on the edge of the picturesque village of Newick. It is only a few metres from the route of the old Bluebell Line that once linked East Grinstead with Lewes. The famous Bluebell Railway which now occupies a good part of this old route is just three miles to the north at Sheffield Park, or should we say one stop up the line!

Skansen is set at the top of the owner's garden in a private and elevated setting. Just a few metres from the door is the private pool, perfect for a relaxing dip on a hot lazy afternoon or that brisk early morning swim!

The bedroom and living space combine well within the cabin with the kitchen being slightly offset. It is bright and airy and gives an immediate impression of good space that doesn't in any way feel cramped. The lodge also has a good sized private shower room set into the corner. Outside in the main season the patio area enjoys the aroma and visual delight of summer flowers and shrubs that all add to the restful experience and tranquility of staying in this delightful area of mid Sussex.

The South East England region

Due south from Skansen, Lewes the county town of East Sussex is only twenty minutes away and home to Anne of Cleve's house and also the Harvey's Brewery which is central to the town. Taking a tour is certainly of interest.

Just outside Lewes is Glyndebourne the world famous opera house where opera has been performed annually since 1934 and it is particularly famous for its productions of Mozart's operas. Glyndebourne is within a twenty minute drive from the lodge.

Haywards Heath

Newick is a short drive east from Haywards Heath so it is well located for a lot of the attractions around Sussex. The nearest of course is The Bluebell Railway at Sheffield Park along with the equally famous Sheffield Park Gardens owned by the National Trust. It is a magnificent internationally renowned 'Capability' Brown landscaped garden.

A short distance north east through the picturesque village of Fletching you quickly reach the Ashdown Forest, with 14,000 acres of lowland heathland that has never been cultivated, it provides a unique habitat for many species of flora and fauna, and of course is the 'home' of Winnie the Pooh! For those who love walking or cycling there are miles of trails to explore and views that carry the eye south towards the South Downs.
