St Benedict is a beautiful and comfortable home dating to 1881 and is finished and run with the style and comfort of a bygone age: the late 19th century, when the house (and the surrounding streets) was built. St.Leonards was a stylish and select resort at that time, attracting wealthy people to the fresh air of the south coast. All the antique decoration, furnishings and fittings are in the period of the late 19th century, with every detail attended to.
