Yesterday we visited Notcutts graden centre in Ditchling West Sussex, just 20 mins drive from Beechwood B and B. Enclosed are some of the beautiful pictures. Guests can have a great day out her with the children.
P.s. Guess who arrives this weekend…..Santa Claus and his reindeer.
This weekend is all about the weather here in East Sussex. Snow is forecast for Sat and Sun how exciting. Arctic Air is bringing snow showers to the uk and temperatures will drop below 10 celsius.
Beechwood b and B is ready however with the fire burning and cosy rooms with Hot Chocolate on offer. A full hearty Breakfast in the morning to set you up for exploring the beautiful South East. The picture below was taken in 2011 when we had a heavy snowfall.
Large parts of Lewes will be affected by road closures this thursday for the annual Bonfire parades, roads will be closed from 5pm.
The Lewes Bonfire Night, or the Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations, is the biggest celebrated Fifth November Event in the world, and is held in the usually peaceful county town of Lewes (pronounced “lu-is or loo-is”), East Sussex, every year on 5th November, and the carnival or festival is known as either the Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations, Lewes Bonfire Night or just simply the Fifth.
It is the biggest and the only proper bonfire night celebration left of its kind in the Uk. This year it will be on Thursday, 5th November 2015. For the latest News, Gossip etc on the Lewes Bonfire, Sussex Bonfires and other general items, take a look at my Twitter feed (veefourvendetta)

No Car Parking in Lewes on Bonfire Night. . .
In fact, This is not one celebration as such, there are in fact six separate Lewes Bonfire Society’s all celebrating the Fifth in various parts of the town, all with their own processions, traditions, costumes, fire sites and fireworks. If you are thinking of driving to this Fifth of November Lewes Bonfire Night Celebration event on Guy Fawkes Night, 5th November, I would forget it as car parking will be a big no, no unless you get here very early as all the car parks and street parking in the town will fill up early. There will be road closures all evening and night all around the Sussex routes into Lewes, starting from about 2pm, and the main procession routes will be out of bounds for car parking. Your best bet is to either use the Bus, The Southern Railway Service or GM Taxi In Lewes.
The Bonfire society are going to make another November the 5th in Lewes East Sussex a night to remember.

Probably the best B&B my wife and I have ever stayed at. The house is large and very well presented. The large and immaculately laid out garden is a major attraction on its own. Our bedroom (Emerald) was large and comfortable with all the facilities we could wish for. The breakfast menu is extensive and the service provided by Carol and Ceri was warm and friendly. Can definitely recommend Beechwood.

It’s Hallowe’en and it’s a glorious Saturday here in East Sussex. We’re just getting ready for the sun to set at Beechwood so that the witches and ghouls can come out to play. We’re awaiting tonight’s guests and we’re wondering whether they are going to trick us because they will certainly have a real 5 star treat this weekend as we always try to provide for our guests. Tommy, Benji and Teddy Bear will greet them with their howling wolves impressions, Ceri will ghost around whilst giving his rendition of “Spooky” and “Bat Out Of Hell” and our Lady In Black, Carol, will do her best Morticia Adams impression because she has ‘It’. Tonight’s dinner will be pumpkin pie, Monster Mash served with a magical gravy potion. We all hope that everyone enjoys their Hallowe’en and try to sleep well!
After a very busy and incredibly well-received series of summer performances, the new season of Touring Glyndebourne is upon us. The autumn productions include Saul and Don Pasquale which begin at the opera house here in East Sussex and then take to the road, visiting UK towns such as Canterbury, Milton Keynes, Woking and Plymouth. The autumn productions will, no doubt, be as well received and the performances throughout the summer, without the formal dress code that is a necessity during the summer. As we are only a 10 minutes drive from Glyndebourne, Beechwood is the perfect base for people visiting the opera and we always try to offer our visitors a comfortable and relaxing stay, which seems to help set the scene perfectly.

Today we visited Sheffield Park gardens which is a National Trust property just 20 minutes drive from Beechwood. It is generally agreed that autumn and spring are the best times to visit Sheffield Park and that is most certainly true, especially on such a lovely sunny day like today. The colours were breathtaking and accentuated by the reflections in the beautiful lakes that visitors are able to walk around. I’ve never seen so many visitors, young, old and canine, at a National Trust at one time and they were all constantly taking photographs. It was photography heaven! We are so blessed here at Beechwood to have an abundance of fabulous places to visit, with many National Trust and English Heritage properties, not to mention privately-owned castles and historical sites. We have visited many of them and can say with honesty that each offer something different to cater for everyone’s needs.
