The Escape

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Ringmer, Lewes, East Sussex, England
The Escape is the perfect place to relax and unwind, offering modern, fully equipped accommodation with a cosy familiar feel.
At The Escape you can relax in front of the Log burner, cook a meal in a fully fitted kitchen or enjoy the hospitality of The Cock Inn 100m away. The Cock, a 16th century coaching inn, has an atmospheric bar, inglenook fireplace and lots of history. The menu is extensive and good value for money.
The Escape 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 wonderful base for walking breaks.
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 Cleves House.
