Stay: Tilton House

East Sussex, England
09.21.2011 | by: Meghan

In the October issue of Conde Nast Traveler, Gully Wells makes a convincing argument for English eccentricity–from crazy hats at weddings to romanticizing the lascivious behavior of the Bloomsbury set. It’s a monster 12-page spread, replete with fashion photos of box-hedge gardens from Sissinghurst castle, bohemian-garbed models traipsing through wild flowers  (and throwing flamboyant garden parties), and a portrait of a topiary designer. And yet, this place–the magnificent Tilton House, with all its history and charm–gets a mere mention under lodgings. Formerly the home of John Maynard Keynes and his Russian ballerina wife (as well as a Bloomsbury meeting spot), the Tilton House is a stately Georgian affair with seven simply decorated bedrooms, all with views over the Sussex Weald or Downs. Portraits of the couple adorn the walls, as if they still lived there, but in place of Bloomsbury gatherings (and plenty of eccentricity–it’s well-documented that Keynes’ wife Russian ballerina Lydia Lopokova used to dance on the lawn under the moonlight.), the house hosts a rotating lineup of writing workshops, yoga retreats, and mushroom foraging outings.

The Details
Rooms starting around $150 (not including workshops). Book your stay at tiltonhouse.co.uk.
