The perfect retreat….Found on a quiet country lane Cleavers Lyng is an ideal base for exploring 1066 Country. A grade II listed Country Guesthouse of considerable charm and character, with a history dating back to 1577. The original part of the house was built during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I to which the oak beams and inglenook fireplace in the breakfast area bear witness.
Cleavers Lyng is set amidst elegant gardens ablaze with colour during the spring and summer months with glorious views across unspoiled Sussex countryside. Our one and half acres of landscaped gardens have a wealth of birds and wildlife and are secluded and very peaceful. We have plenty of off road parking. For those that like to take a long walk or a short stroll you can take both directly from the property, with over 500 acres of the Herstmonceux Castle Estate or the hundreds of acres over the Pevensey Marshes.
For those that just like to relax and unwind away from the urban clamour we offer cosy and quality accommodation along with comfortable seating in our downstairs residents lounge area where games and cards are also available. All of our bedrooms are furnished to the highest of standards all with double beds (Four Poster and Balcony Room for that special occassion) and modern en-suite facilities, along with hospitality tray, flat panel colour TV and DVD player and free WIFI connection.
Guests can tuck in to our delicious full English cooked breakfast, prepared from locally sourced produce and quality ingredients – free range eggs, butcher’s sausages, fine back bacon, button mushrooms and home-grown tomatoes (when in season).
Alternatively...if you prefer something a little lighter in the mornings, choose from a selection of cereals, exotic fresh fruit salad, yogurts, toast and warmed croissants served with home-made marmalade and jam. A selection of teas, coffee and fruit juices are also available.
There are a number of restaurants we can personally recommend in Herstmonceux village, including a bistro, the Eastern Promise Indian, the Sundial restaurant offering French cuisine, and two local pubs with more traditional menus.
The nearby towns of Hailsham, Bexhill and Eastbourne also offer a variety of eateries to suit all tastes – from fish and chips to Chinese, Thai and Mexican. Please don’t hesitate to ask us for details on arrival. Should you wish to book a table at a local restaurant, we will happily make a reservation for you.
Guests can relax in the triple aspect lounge which provides glorious views of the grounds which come alive with colour, birds and wildlife. During the winter months, the warm glow from the open inglenook fireplace, create an inviting and cosy ambience. Laptop users may use our WIFI connection free of charge. Please ask us for the password to enable connection.
