There is much to see and do in this lovely part of Sussex. Crowborough is a charming country town, famous for the fact that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who wrote Sherlock Holmes lived here.
Situated on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, Crowborough is a fabulous base for exploring the countryside and walking over the forest. You and your own Christopher Robin can explore the Enchanted Place, throw sticks from the Poohsticks Bridge or take a cream tea (with plenty of honey) at Piglet's tearooms. There is even a Winnie the Pooh shop in Hartfield, which is a short drive away.
The spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is only 15 minutes away with a huge array of shops and great places to eat out plus two theatres, a museum and art galleries. There is a cinema complex which holds a bowling alley and restaurants so plenty of fun for the children if the weather is not so good.
There is also a dry ski slope just 15 minutes away, Bowles Outdoor Centre which also has fabulous rock climbing possibilities. For sports enthusiasts, the area has an abundance of golf and tennis clubs, riding and walking possibilities.
If you fancy a flutter, Plumpton races are just over half an hour away and nearby Lewes has a medieval castle on a hill top waiting for you to explore while admiring the views across this pretty and historic town. For opera lovers, Glyndebourne is only half an hour away and provides opera in a fabulous and world famous setting.
The cosmopolitan city of Brighton is a forty five minute drive away, where you will find an eclectic mix of individual shops and boutiques, trendy bars and numerous restaurants, not forgetting the famous pier with traditional fun fair rides and fish and chip shops. For families, both the Bluebell steam Railway and Drusilla's zoo offer a really special day out.
