Planning a last-minute Valentine’s getaway? There are still some romantic, stylish weekend-break properties in and around Sussex available for Valentine’s Day.
The Little Annexe
The Little Annexe is a grown-up space, decorated with jewel tones and sumptuously styled. Just 20 mins from the South Downs Way, it is a great base for blustery, wintery romantic walks and for making the most of the stunning scenery. There is a pub just a short stroll away, if that all sounds like too much activity! Dog-friendly, too.
Lifestyle journalist Amy Maynard painstakingly refurbished and styled ‘The Outbuilding’, in sleepy Appledore, to be a glamorous yet understated space. Cosy at this time of year, with a wood burner and sheepskin-draped armchairs to snuggle up in, yet still flooded with light thanks to large windows and open-plan spaces. If the family need to tag along too, there are some beautiful bespoke bunk beds to keep the children happy.
The Barn is beautifully situated in the grounds of the owners’ listed Georgian house, sharing seven acres of garden and open pasture. Inside the muted colour palette and exposed beams make this a supremely calm and restful place to spend the weekend. The Nespresso machine in the well-equipped kitchen will make lie-ins a must. Why leave?
