Spring Cottage – Rustic Escapes in Sussex

The county of Sussex captures the essence of southern England. With 1,500 square miles of prime landscape and home to wonderful countryside, busy market towns and seaside resorts, this beautiful county has been put on the map recently as Prince Harry and Meghan have been named Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Pretty towns and villages such as Amberley, Chichester, Lewes, Petworth, Arundel and of course the famous South Downs National Park offer countless opportunities to spend a few days relaxing and exploring this lovely region. Easy access to Gatwick Airport and a short train ride from London offer other opportunities.

Sussex has a rich history – there are castles and old houses to visit, beautiful gardens to wander in and many antique fairs and shops to explore. Or go hiking, cycling and horse-riding in the South Downs stopping for lunch in a traditional pub. Sussex retains some culinary traditions with well-known vineyards, beer brewing going back to the 18thcentury such as at Harvey’s Brewery in Lewes, cider making and gin distilling.  Bands such as The Cure and Keane come from Sussex and Brighton was the host of the Eurovision Song Contest when ABBA stepped onto the world stage.

Rustic Escapes offers a complete experience. Our lovely cottage in Amberley is well-equipped to offer our guests a peaceful stay.  We look after you from start to finish so you can relax and enjoy the area. We know the region well and can introduce you to local history, culture and activities allowing you to be as busy or as chilled as you want.
