Northease is a small Hamlet ideally positioned between Kingston & Rodmell. Kingston is a picturesque village with a good range of leisure activities, along with a 15th century church, pre-school and junior school. The village pub, The Juggs provides a good focal point for the village. Rodmell itself has a highly regarded primary school, award winning village pub, village hall and of course the National Trust property, Monks House home to Virginia Woolf.

The historic county town Lewes is located 3 miles away, with its mainline station (Victoria 55 mins) offering a good range of shops and leisure pursuits. Brighton is 7 miles away and Newhaven 4 miles, with its ferry terminal close by, as is the world renowned Glyndebourne Opera House.
