Look no further if you want to get away from the hectic hustle and bustle of modern living and slip into complete peace and tranquillity. loft View is situated in the stunning picturesque village of Alciston in the heart of the Southdowns National Park and accessed by a country lane off the A27 between the villages of Selmeston and Berwick.

The views to the Southdowns are quite spectacular. The Old Coach road (unmade track) that surrounds the village is ideal for walking and birdwatching. The beautiful villages of Alfriston and Firle are equidistant and also offer the opportunity for great walks in the unspoilt countryside around them.

Throughout the year there are events at Charleston Manor (home to the Bloomsbury Set) some 5 miles distant. Firle Place is approximately 3 miles away and is open to visitors during the summer months hosting various events. For Opera enthusiasts Glyndebourne Opera House is situated some 5/6 miles away.

Eastbourne with its splendid Victorian seafront buildings and theatres is a complete contrast and just a 15 minute car ride. loft View is on the ground floor of a building behind what was formerly the village pub but is now a private residence and can be rented together with the one bedroom Loft Apartment above if desired.

Living Area

The Loft Apartment is accessed via an external wooden staircase. The front door leads straight into the living area at the front of the property which is south facing. It is comforta-bly furnished with a sofa, lamp, coffee table, dining table and chairs and a TV with Free-view channels. This lovely room is bright with light flooding in from twin skylights and the door, a cosy hideaway to relax in after a busy day exploring.

Kitchen Area

The kitchen is furnished with an oven/hob, fridge freezer and microwave oven. There is a plentiful supply of crockery, pots, pans and utensils and everything you would need should you decide to dine in rather than taking advantage of one of the many local pubs & restau-rants. A door leads out on to a balcony area at the top of the wooden stairs with a table and chairs where you can sit when the weather is fine to eat outside of just admire the view if you prefer.

Main Bedroom

There is a double bed with bedside tables and lamps, dressing table with drawers, arm-chair and a wardrobe.


The bathroom has a toilet, wash handbasin, heated towel rail and shower cubicle. The window has views out over the countryside.
