Location of Vineyard

Breaky Bottom lies in a fold in the South Downs, about 5 miles from Lewes in East Sussex. Visits are by appointment and can usually be made at short notice.

Driving south from the town of Lewes, on the road to Rodmell, you will pass the villages of Kingston, Swanborough and Iford. After Iford (but before Rodmell) look for a right turn off the road into Northease Farm. Breaky Bottom is situated 1.25 miles over the hill, following the farm track! Some of the track is rather rough, other parts smoother, but you will eventually reach a cattle grid when you are on the top of the Downs. Here there is a closed gate signed "Breaky Bottom" but you can use the cattle grid and continue down into the valley. Some people regard this as a pioneering journey, others take it in their stride, but all are delighted with the beauty of this isolated little valley. Come and see for yourself. Please phone 01273 476 427 to arrange your visit
