The Old Farmhouse Foxhole Farm, Seaford Road, Newhaven, East Sussex BN9 0EE UK +44 (0) 1273 513 760

The cottages are self catering accommodation on ground floor level, but may have one or two steps to enter and one or two to manage inside the property.
We have tried to provide detailed descriptions of our accommodation and correct measurements wherever possible to assist you when making your decision if our cottage would be suitable for your needs.
From previous experience I think we are able to comfortably accommodate semi mobile people, but our cottages may not suit those who are completely wheelchair bound.
