The Getaway is the perfect place to relax and unwind, offering modern, fully equipped accommodation, to suit self catering either indoors or al fresco. Alternatively, guests could visit The Cock Inn 100m away, www.cockpub.co.uk, a 16th century coaching inn. The Cock offers a menu which combines food for a special occasion with value for money. The Atmospheric Bar with its Inglenook Fireplace is friendly and welcoming. Nearby Ringmer village offers two pubs within 10 minutes drive and an excellent, independent butcher, bakers, greengrocer and small supermarket. The Getaway is surrounded by fields, with a footpath to picturesque Barcombe Mills passing the gate. Walkers are within a short drive of the South Downs National Park, the South Downs Way and the Ashdown Forest, making this a wonder...The Getaway is the perfect place to relax and unwind, offering modern, fully equipped accommodation, to suit self catering either indoors or al fresco.

Glyndebourne is 2.5km away, so a visit to the Opera could be combined with the historic town of Lewes, offering a Norman Castle, Priory and Anne of Cleeves's house. With Brighton only 1/2 hours drive away, The Getaway is an ideal place to explore this cosmopolitan town whether for its Regency history or vibrant night life.More

Very clean and comfortable. It is lovely and warm and I found everything I needed . It was ideal for my standard poodle being in a quiet lane and with the field at the back.
