Attached to a converted granary is this superb compact studio set in a quiet location within the South Downs National Park enjoying wonderful views across paddocks, meadows, the Downs and Firle Beacon. Candlemas House, to which the studio is attached, is a converted granary, originally part of the adjoining working farm of medieval origin. Alciston is on a no-through road and has a direct footpath access to the South Downs, the South Downs Way and the Old Coach Road to Firle and Berwick. Glyndebourne is a ten minute drive away.

A fabulous place! Very well appointed studio was a joy to stop in for a few days. Would love to come back to this hidden gem. Thank you to you both for making our little holiday special.

Previous Customer,

Compact but contains everything needed for your stay. Wonderful location for easy access to beautiful walks in the South Downs National Park, interesting villages and tearooms serving delicious food.

Mr John H,

We've had a brilliant week. Thank you for the use of this comfy studio. It's a real home from home. We appreciated the kind welcome pack. The views from the window and garden are superb and the local walking is fantastic. Many thanks!

Previous Customer,

Enjoyable week, lovely surroundings

G & J,

The property is in a lovely location at the end of a cul-de-sac in a charming small village. Excellent walks through fields and on the South Downs are available from the doorstep. It's a terrific venue to stay for Glyndebourne which is less than 15 minutes away. The property is beautifully equipped with modern appliances, an excellent kitchen area, more than adequate storage and a comfortable settee. There's a pleasant garden with lovely views.

Richard B,

A wonderfully peaceful place to indulge with such beautiful surroundings.

Mr R B,

Small but bijou

Mr H,

Nice small Studio in a village, excellent for a solo traveller or a couple.

Raymond S,

The Studio is perfect for a single traveler or a couple. Located in a lovely village with no through traffic making it very safe and quiet. The accommodations are well thought out and well equipped. I enjoyed every aspect of my stay.

Mr S,
