This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.

Brand new room in my wonderful medieval house hidden away just off Lewes High Street, nestling under the castle. You have your own front door, an ensuite wet room, a light breakfast and a G&T to greet you! The room is bijou and chic. It has everything you need for your perfect stay in this wonderful historic town. And only six minutes from the station.
