On the edge of South Downs National Park, the house is set in 6 acres of outstanding natural beauty. The abundant gardens have lots of special, enchanting places to visit and there are many idyllic, stirring walks to have in the immediate area.
Inside is warm, relaxed and friendly – yoga and workshops take place in a huge light-filled room of many French windows looking out on to the stunning views whilst a wood-stove warmed yurt in the garden is the setting for relaxing massage treatments. A wood panelled room provides a cosy crèche and there’s also a sofa filled reading room for chatting, relaxing and reading. The bedrooms are cosy and comfortable, each with a double bed.
The delicious and creative food is fantastic, mostly organic and locally sourced where possible. It is also vegetarian.
London is only an hour away and Brighton a 20 minute car journey. Florence House is also close to Seaford station and Eastbourne (with direct links to London Victoria).
Mamaheaven was a very loving and gentle reminder of how life should be for mothers and babies. They made us feel we are doing great jobs as mothers and that we can take care of our babies and ourselves at the same time.
Big thanks to all the team for their kindness and support, for choosing such a beautiful place by the sea and for the lovely food and time they shared with all of us.
Mamaheaven will always stay close to my heart and I will make sure my daughter knows how lovely it felt to be away together for the first time, just the two of us.
