Bluebell Magical Walks!

The smell is intoxicating and the woods are alive with a blue hue, its bluebell season! The sun is out and so are the walkers including me! Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon chatting with my friend Jane and took her dog Oscar for a lovely walk in our woods behind the house. Oscar could not contain himself there were so may new creatures to discover and he found that pheasants could take off vertically if required into the tall oak trees in White Lodge's ancient woodland!

Oscar was intrigued by the steep bank at the back of the woods which leads to the old railway line which in summer you can stroll along to get to Barcombe village. Last week we had many walkers to stay Edith and Alan were on a mission to complete another section of The South Downs Way in the beautiful South Downs National Park. Even on their day off they used our Lewes map to explore Lewes Castle and the lovely gardens en-route. They followed the Priory History Trail a circular walk from Lewes town centre through Priory Park during which you can visit some of the historic sites and artefacts associated with Lewes Priory - it's both fascinating and beautiful.

There are many walks direct from White Lodge's luxury bed and breakfast's front door each local wood is now a lovely shade of blue and white (wood anemones) Or you can visit the famous National Trust's Sheffield Park and Nymans which are close by.

The sun deck has come back into use with the lovely sunny weather with guests relaxing between meetings on the sun loungers! If you fancy a short break just call or email Ann on +44 1273 400151 or email Please book direct and support small businesses.
