STAY AT A VINE­YARD

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape | Getaway -

On Sus­sex’s rolling South Downs lies Rathfinny, a vine­yard planted in 2012 com­plete with a state-of-the-art, RIBA Award-nominated win­ery. Go now for a whistlestop tour of the blos­som­ing vines – in­clud­ing a tast­ing – and stop for a night in the beau­ti­fully con­verted Flint Barns. Dogs are wel­come and Ade, the es­tate cook, will make up ex­cel­lent packed lunches for £7.95 per pic­nicker. Try a glass of Rathfinny’s cur­rent wine, ‘Cra­dle Val­ley’ – a beau­ti­ful home-grown Pinot Gris – ac­com­pa­nied with a view of the English Chan­nel (dou­ble rooms from £95 per night; rathfinnyestate.com).
