“We usually book with Sykes as we ...”We usually book with Sykes as we like the standard of the facilities and know what to expect in terms of kitchen equipment particularly. The cottage was lovely with some thoughtful décor. The location was exceptional especially for us as we are in our seventies and appreciated single storied and the short walks around the estate with all the spring flowers. The weather was well beyond expectations for March - warm and sunny with no rain all the week.

This lovely terraced lodge is located in the grounds of Glyndley Manor, near Stone Cross and Pevensey, a delightful retreat made up of a manor house, 33 lodges, an open air swimming pool and a small lake, all set in 17 acres of tranquil woodland and beautifully-maintained gardens in Sussex countryside.
This lodge is still set close to the coastal towns of Pevensey and Eastbourne and has been furnished and equipped to the highest of standards, offering couples and families the ideal place to stay when looking to indulge in rest and relaxation.
The charming bedrooms in this lodge are both themed to reflect the warmest seasons.
The soft blues and whites of the double bedroom will have guests drifting off to sleep with summer days on the beach in mind, whilst the twin bedroom, with its pale yellows and creams, gently wakes you up with a spring in your step.
The spacious open plan living accommodation has been carefully furnished to allow everyone to settle down, whatever the weather, and enjoy each others company, either planning days out or making the most of precious time together, this light and welcoming living area lets you enjoy views over grounds to the front and into woodland behind it.
You could be forgiven for not leaving this lovely location for the whole of your stay with walking and birdwatching on your doorstep, and even an open air swimming pool to use during summer months.
However, with so many fascinating and exciting places to visit so close, plan your days out well in advance, so lace up the walking boots, climb into the car or onto the saddle and go exploring!
