Strand House

A hidden gem, for those in need of a home from home hideaway…

Strand House, a historic Tudor luxury B&B in Winchelsea, East Sussex was built in 1425. This listed building pre-dates Cardinal Wolsey himself, but as a Wolsey Lodge today it offers every modern comfort. Set in glorious gardens overlooking adjoining meadows, complete with beehives and grazing sheep, there are areas to relax in and paths to explore – one taking you into town via a medieval Strand Gate in the town walls.

The interior is as interesting and inviting as the exterior. Beams, nooks and crannies, uneven floors and ancient doorways lead you through this lovingly restored home, furnished in a Flemish style with complementing antiques. An honesty bar and a choice of sitting rooms, one with a wood burning stove.

Loved by many, this award-winning Lodge can also cater for small intimate weddings, house parties and multi-generation family holidays and celebrations.

Breakfast is served at separate tables in the dining room, complete with inglenook. Enjoy a full Sussex breakfast, followed by freshly baked croissants and bread, served with locally made preserves or honey from Hugh’s beehives.

 Luxurious guest bedrooms – one with a four-poster bed – are individually furnished and vary in size (as befitting such a historic property) and include toweling robes and hospitality tray with homemade biscuits.

Your B&B Hosts

Nothing is too much trouble for Hugh and Mary. Both have many years’ experience in catering and Mary has had a life-long interest in cooking. Special dietary needs are catered for with ease plus packed lunches or delicious dinners, available for guests by prior arrangement. You could not be in better hands!


Castles, battlefields, beaches, gardens and stately homes abound and ancient Winchelsea itself is a hidden delight. Located between the High Weald and the Romney Marsh, 2 miles from the famous medieval town of Rye, 7 miles from Hastings and close to the sea. East Sussex has steam railways, cycle paths, great walks, arts and music festivals and numerous shops to explore, there is something in the area to interest everyone.
