Description

5 The Orchards is conveniently located around 2 miles North of Lewes just outside Ringmer.

Close by is the 16th Century Cock Inn country pub with beautiful gardens, oak beams, flagstone floors, log fire, serving real ales and homecooked food. In the other direction equally close is the local convenience store selling groceries.

Ringmer is one of the largest villages in the south of England dating as early as Roman times. The village church, dedicated to St Mary, is said to be built in the 13th Century. Ringmer boasts two village pubs, The Anchor and The Green Man both known for excellent home cooked food and real ales. The village shops offer a selection of amenities including a general store, various food outlets as well as an independent pet store, hairdressers and bakers. Ringmer has two schools, Ringmer Primary School for ages 4–11 and Kings Academy for students aged 11–16. The village has a county league football team and at the centre is Ringmer Cricket Club.

Lewes is home to a wealth of creative industries and the vibrant patronage of the arts can be felt through the character of its lanes and twittens, as you wander through the town.

Lewes is a unique shopping and leisure destination, offering a wide range of local shops and independent boutiques. Dining out in Lewes is a pleasure with a selection of restaurants and Jolly Sportsman in nearby East Chiltington, to the wide range of gastro pubs, many of which support the resident Harvey’s Brewery.

Visit the farmers market on the first Saturday of every month to pick up some delicious local fare. Pop into Bill’s for a cuppa or something more substantial from the mouthwatering menu. Have a pint of Harvey’s, the local brew, and take in some music in one of the many friendly pubs in the area.

Lewes has an active sporting hub, with a leisure centre, swimming pool and running track. Both Lewes rugby and football clubs are well established, with significant facilities. Easy access is afforded to the leisure facilities of Brighton Marina, within 10 miles, which is the largest man-made marina in Europe, and also hosts a multiplex cinema.

Schooling in Lewes is exceptional and there are a range of well-regarded private and public schools, to include the famous Lewes Old Grammar School which can trace its origins back to the educational foundation started by Agnes Morley during the reign of Henry VIII. South Downs College is located in Lewes offering both full and part time courses and of course the University of Sussex is only 3 miles to the south west at Falmer.

The City of Brighton is only 8 miles away from Lewes on the South Coast and there are also direct rail links to London Victoria, in a little over one hour. Lewes has a maverick population, which over the centuries has resulted in the town developing a truly unique place in history. Lewes is famous for its beautiful Norman Castle, which towers over the High Street along with Anne of Cleves House, part of the annulment settlement for Queen Anne from Henry VIII. The character of Lewes is such that it can boast the first assembly of Parliament!
