In honour of Summer Solstice tomorrow (when summer officially begins), we’d like to show you some of the best spaces that are ideal to entertain in.

Hill Brow, Hove

This contemporary detached home has five bedrooms, two/three reception rooms and a luxury master bedroom suite. We’ve included this one because of its beautiful open plan kitchen/diner which leads on to a roof terrace. The garden itself has been thoughtfully landscaped and is perfect for all of the family.

East Lodge, Malthouse Lane, Hurstpierpoint

This is another contender with great outdoor space.  It has four bedrooms, a triple aspect sitting room and is in a secluded rural setting. There’s a wonderful alfresco entertaining area complete with a pizza oven, BBQ and cooking area. It’s the perfect place to entertain on a warm summer’s night.

Underhill Lane, Ditchling

This detached bungalow in a semi-rural location has four double bedrooms, a large family kitchen and a great garden room/conservatory. Living in England, we all know that the weather can turn in the blink of an eye – so a space like this leading out to the garden might be your best bet for when the heavens open and you need a quick escape!

South Lane, Hurstpierpoint

This Victorian maisonette has four bedrooms, a sitting room with a balcony and even a cellar! But what we love most is this lovely courtyard garden. Whilst it might not be the biggest garden going, it will allow for intimate dinners with friends and family. We can’t think of anything better!

Grand Crescent, Rottingdean

This impressive detached home has stunning views of the sea and the Sussex Downs. We love this spacious conservatory which spans the entire width of the house. This would be an ideal place to entertain if the weather’s unreliable – and you get the comfort and warmth of being inside. It’s the best of both worlds!

If a great garden and entertaining space is a must-have for you, make sure you get in touch with a member of our team so you can spend long summer nights in your dream property.
