The Ashdown Forest lies a few minutes' drive to the south, with miles of wonderful walks in quite unusual terrain, you could almost be in Scotland! Why not visit Pooh Bridge and have a game of Pooh Sticks, or try and work out which tree is The Lone Pine, the map at Gills Lap will help you decide.
There are plenty of lovely villages nearby, including Hartfield, Forest Row and Frant with Mayfield a little further afield. With great pubs such as The Hatch at Coleman's Hatch and the Hurstwood at High Hurstwood, you can enjoy a wonderful fresh local food. Bowles Outdoor Centre, is situated just 5 minutes away where you can learn to rock climb, build rafts and even ski on the 2 dry ski slopes.
Groombridge Place is a short drive away with its wonderful gardens and raised wooden adventure walk through the woods. The giant swings in the Enchanted Woods are a must for any child or adult! There are a variety of wonderful visitor attractions, including Sissinghurst Gardens, Scotney Castle, a National Trust 14th century moated castle, Bodiam Castle, Lewes Castle, Penshurst Place and Hever Castle.
Bedgebury Forest and National Park is only 20 minutes' drive away, which is a stunning area of natural beauty miles of walks and cycling paths, including 'Go Ape,' a hugely fun activity where you can swing through the trees. Nearby Bewl water is the largest area of inland water in the South-East. If you are a water sports enthusiast, this is the place to visit with lots of activities including sailing, canoeing and wind-surfing.
A visit to Royal Tunbridge Wells is a must. Adored by the young Queen Victoria (hence its royal status), it's a very attractive town with great shopping facilities. It was established as a spa town in Georgian times and was very popular under Richard (Beau) Nash when the Pantiles and its chalybeate spring attracted visitors who wanted to try the waters. Nowadays, it is a pleasant place to wander, admire the architecture and visit its antique shops and cafes. Great for those who love shopping too! Brighton (50 minutes) and Lewes (35 minutes) and Rye (50 minutes) are well worth a visit. Trains to London Bridge leave from Eridge (1 mile away), Crowborough (1.5 miles away) and Tunbridge Wells (4 miles away) and take an under an hour.For more ideas, look on our 'Things to Do' section of the website.
