“Delightful and relaxing!”
Reviewed August 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived home yesterday from a lovely few days break at The Getaway. We had such a relaxing time in the beautiful cottage and surrounding gardens. The owners Joy and John were so helpful and welcoming. Arrived to yummy homemade scones! They cute little dog Cara is friendly and adorable. The pub next door "The Cock" also had really nice gardens and delicious food.
We will definitely be going back!

“Great little dog friendly place to stay.”
Reviewed January 26, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed at The Getaway this January when we were on business in the area and had to bring our two dogs. We were welcomed by Joy and a lovely cream tea! Accommodation is spotless and well appointed. Right next to a public footpath through some fields,so good for dog walking. Unfortunately the pub next door was closed the night we arrived so we had to drive into Ringmer to eat. We enjoyed our brief stay and the only thing that I could criticise is that the main road is very near and the traffic noise was a little disturbing. Not good for overnight stays as Joy has a 3 night minimum. But I cannot fault it otherwise.

Unfortunately both criticisms are out of my control. The traffic noise does seem to depend on the wind being in a certain direction as some guests say how quiet it is. It probably depends on how much noise you are used to at home. The pub next door unfortunately decided to close for the night for their staff Christmas party. Something that they hadn't publicised or I would have made my Guests aware of the fact. Never mind I think they are open every day apart from that.
We do say in all our advertising that we have a 3 day minimum stay and at £40 per night (Winter rate) for 2 people I think it represents good value for money.

“The Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Me and my partner very much enjoyed our long weekend away at the getaway. The studio was immaculate and very comfortable, all the essentials were provided and the gardens are beautiful. The surrounding countryside is lovely and all with a great country pub next door! Our hosts were very helpful why still respecting our privacy and we defiantly hope to return in the future!

“Excellent property. Superb location for walking holiday.”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We spent 4 nights at The Getaway. We had everything we needed. There was central heating for when it was cold one day but we were blessed with warm sunshine for most of our stay. Our dog Pepsii enjoyed meeting Cara and exploring the garden. The kitchen was easy to use and we appreciated being provided with some basic supplies. The property is well located to explore Sussex villages or to walk the South Downs Way.

“Excellent, comfortable self catering accommodation”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We chose to stay at The Getaway as we had booked tickets for an Alfie Boe concert in Brighton. The accommodation more than lived up to expectations right from the moment we arrived. We were warmly greeted by John and Joy (and Cara their lovely little dog), and there were fresh flowers and home-made scones and jam on the table. Although it was the coldest Easter on record, inside the accommodation was lovely and warm. Outside there is a pergola with table and chairs for guests exclusive use in warmer weather. Joy is a professional gardener and it was lovely to look out at the spring flowers. The accommodation has everything you need for an enjoyable break away - very relaxing, reclining chairs, comfortable bed with overhead reading lights, full oven/hob, microwave, washing machine and quality crockery, glasses and kitchen utensils. There were DVDs to play as well as maps and a basket of useful, up to date information about the area. As we enjoy walking it was great to have a public footpath nearby. A bonus was being able to walk to The Cock Inn pub, at the end of the cul de sac, which serves delicious meals and seems very popular with local people. We would thoroughly recommend The Getaway to anyone wanting to stay in the Lewes/Brighton area.

“Very good value for the money!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Getaway a lot. It's small but very cosy accommodation. The apartment is really well equipped. I would only add a small stereo or CD player. Owners are kind and helpful, there is loads of info about the area provided. Apartment has a good location with many interesting walks nearby. We (well our dog) loved the huge field behind the house. There is also a great pub literally next door.
