Stay a little longer

Set in the garden of Virginia Woolf's country retreat, Monks House Studio is a calming space

Why not extend your stay in Rodmell and enjoy a short break in our small holiday cottage at Monk's House? The Garden Studio is a perfect bolthole for two people looking to discover the delights of this part of East Sussex. Whether you're a walker, writer, gardener or foodie, there's so much to enjoy in the vicinity of Monk's House.

For literary lovers, Bateman's, the home of Rudyard Kipling is located approx 35-40 minutes away in the beautiful Dudwell Valley. Henry James' home at Lamb House, Rye is only a little further. Both properties are managed by the National Trust and highly recommended.

For the walkers and cyclists amongst you the South Downs Way is located only a few heartbeats from Rodmell and Monk's House. Extending for almost 100 miles between Eastbourne and Winchester, you can take your pick of which section to complete during your stay. The Seven Sisters section is one of the trickier stetches but well worth it for the fabulous views.

Take this opportunity to discover all that 'Bloomsbury in Sussex' has to offer? Charleston Farmhouse, the home of Virginia Woolf's artist sister is located approx 25 minutes away. The small church at Berwick, painted by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant is also a must!

Perhaps you're looking to do very little but enjoy the piece and tanquility afforded by an evening in the Woolf's beautiful garden. Take up bowls or simply lounge with a good book in one of our many deckchairs. Better still, why not start that novel?
