Beechwood B and B has been accredited the award for Sussex Breakfast.

IMG_0523IMG_3012http://www.lewes.gov.uk/business/sussexbreakfast.aspNothing says “I’m on holiday, I have the time” better than a delicious breakfast; imagine how much nicer it tastes knowing you’re eating the finest quality local produce.

Fresh baked bread, fresh laid free-range eggs, locally reared pork, locally grown tomatoes washed down by a refreshing glass of apple juice. But The Sussex Breakfast can be lots more depending on the season.

The food producers of West Sussex and East Sussex bring us a huge variety of cheeses, jams, pouring youghurts, cereals, and garden grown ingredients which clever hosts use to create imaginative menus, for when you fancy a change from egg, bacon and sausages.

The Sussex Breakfast consists of a minimum 60% of ethically farmed quality Sussex produce. It includes apple juice – because that’s what we grow in our orchards. Businesses achieving The Sussex Breakfast accreditation are committed to serving the best breakfast they can – one that is fresh, seasonal and oh so tasty.

And that means lower food miles, support for farmers and a more attractive countryside to explore after breakfast – a perfect recipe to work up an appetite for tomorrow.

September at Beechwood

DSC_0516Here we are, September already. The summer is behind us and the first steps into autumn are to be taken. The falling leaves, the morning dew on the grass, the perfect ‘V’ formations of geese heading south for the winter are all signs that we are preparing for autumn and winter.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that the whole country has to lock itself away for the coming months! Oh no! At Beechwood, we’re positively excited at the prospect. The changing seasons bring with it fresh demands and ideas where alternative features can come to the fore.

September, of course, carries the excitement of the children returning to school, rejuvenated and relaxed after their lengthy summer holidays. New school year, new class, sometimes a new school! Those of you without the burden of the daily school run now get the opportunity to venture off somewhere without the pressure of falling over the little darlings at our crowded tourist destinations! And why not come to East Sussex. By jingo – you could even stay here at Beechwood B&B and be served with gigantic portions of luxury, comfort and care!

There is still bundles to see and do here in east Sussex during September. It’s the start of the carnival season where the local bonfire societies take centre stage to provide spectacle. It kicks off with the Uckfield Carnival on Saturday 3rd September, just 3 miles from us http://www.uckfieldcarnival.co.uk and culminates in the massive Lewes Bonfire on Guy Fawkes Night (November 5th)http://www.lewesbonfirecelebrations.com .

Of course, for those of you of a more sedate disposition, and wanting to avoid the throngs and heartstopping firework bangs, September is the perfect time to visit the many Nation Trust properties and gardens we have to offer in east Sussex. Beechwood could be the ideal central base from which to explore. We have Sheffield Park gardens as our must see destination during there autumn months. The walks around the lakes are beautiful at any time of year but during autumn – WOW!WOW!WOW! The colours are of jaw dropping beauty and when you witness the reflections of these colours in the lakes it simply adds to the overall joy.https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/sheffield-park-and-garden http://www.visitsoutheastengland.com/things-to-do/sheffield-park-garden-p49743.

So please don’t just sit indoors waiting for the long dreariness of winter to hit home, take yourself off while we still have the chance of an Indian summer. It’ll help you prepare for the seemingly endless wait for next summer!

Beechwood and Glyndebourne

So, another wonderful opera season draws to a close at Glyndebourne and we at Beechwood are very pleased to continue our association in providing luxury accommodation for the many opera visitors. We always aim to offer relaxation, unrivalled quality and care both in the lead up to guests attendance at Glyndebourne and their return to Beechwood. The season runs from the end of May through to August Bank Holiday with a range of popular and slightly more obscure operas alternating throughout each week. It’s always a joy to see our guests leaving for Glyndebourne dressed in all their finery with gentlemen in black tie and tuxedos and ladies in evening gowns. Bearing in mind the current weather situation in East Sussex (scorching unbroken sunshine) the prospect of enjoying a sumptuous picnic during the interval must be very desirable and for those enjoying the Glyndebourne restaurants, they can always be guaranteed amazing service and food. Many stay for 2 nights and enjoy a filling, beautifully presented breakfast before attending the opera. Most are overcome by the combination of food on offer both with us and Glyndebourne and opt for just a light breakfast on the morning after! It’s such a shame that June was such a wet month as it makes attending Glyndebourne very difficult but it didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of our guests at the time.

Of course, in the not too distant future is the touring Glyndebourne season. This begins at Glyndebourne on Friday 14th October with 13 dates ending on 3rd November and then moving to Milton Keynes, Canterbury, Norwich, Woking and ending on 10th December in Plymouth. The tour performances will be Don Giovanni, Madame Butterfly and Saul and although the occasions are less glamorous (normal day suits are acceptable) and tickets are generally cheaper, the performances themselves are certainly on a par with the summer season.

Naturally we are available to offer our usual quality accommodation for people wanting to bask in such culture at Glyndebourne. So hurry – book your tickets and book your accommodation at Beechwood to get the best of both worlds  ……
