Location

The Stables is one of 12 properties that comprise the tranquil hamlet of Littledene. Nature lovers, walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders can enjoy the nearby foot and bridle paths found at the foot of the downs and National Park, less than 200 metres away. Littledene is ideally located betwixt the cherished, acclaimed and highly sought after villages of Firle and Glynde, with Lewes town centre so easily accessible via the A27.

The county town of Lewes (2.5 miles due west) is fondly described as a small town with a big heart. Historians believe the name derives from the Old English ‘hlaews’ (‘hills’ or ‘mounds’) as Lewes is built into the slopes either side of the Ouse Valley. It was here that Simon de Montfort fought the Battle of Lewes against the King and where Tom Paine, author of ‘The Rights of Man’ once lived. Lewes has long been known for its spirit of independence and the inhabitants are proud of its significant history stretching back to Saxon times. Lewes is a great place to shop with so many independent, antique and quirky shops and also the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat or a drink in one of the eclectic number of pubs. There is also a working brewery situated in the heart of the community on the banks of the Ouse. Commuters abound with a mainline railway station (London/Victoria just over the hour) found at the bottom of Station Street, which in turn leads off the High Street. There are three supermarkets, the acclaimed independent Depot cinema, leisure centre, tertiary college, along with well attended primary and senior schools. The universities of Sussex and Brighton and the coast at Brighton are found 6 and 9 miles away respectively.
