Owner's tips: "Just a short walk away is the Hurstwood Pub which is in a fantastic country setting, the food is to die for and the wine is good too. Even better there is no need to drive"
Situated within the grounds of the owner's
farm and equestrian centre and close to Ashdown Forest this is a perfect base
for horse enthusiasts and ramblers alike. Both the Wealdway and the Vanguard
Way, two of England's famous walks, lead virtually from the cottages up on to
the Forest. Covering over 6000 acres of the High Weald, an Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty, horse riders have countless bridleways available to them, but
if you prefer to enjoy the countryside on two feet or even two wheels it is
also a great place for walking, cycling and enjoying spectacular views.
For a very different change of scenery and just a few minutes drive away, placed at the very heart of the Sussex Weald, is the bustling town of Uckfield. Its vibrant High Street offers a wide range of services including a picture house dating back to the 1920's, and is the local shopping centre for surrounding villages.
Visit the farmers market on the first Saturday of every month and pick up some delicious local fare, have a pint of Harveys, the local brew, in one of the many friendly pubs or enjoy a mouth- watering meal from any of the town's cosmopolitan range of restaurants.
A short drive will take you to a variety of beautiful visitor attractions, including beautiful Scotney Castle, a National Trust 14th century moated castle, Bodiam Castle, Lewes Castle, Penshurst Place or Hever Castle. Bedgebury Forest and National Park is only 11 miles 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. 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.
Further afield you will discover Glyndbourne, the famous Opera House; the nostalgic Bluebell Railway; Brighton and its stylish Marina, or the more traditional resort of Eastbourne with superb blue flag beaches. Not forgetting of course, the famous Beachy Head together with a variety of National Trust and English Heritage properties and gardens. Should you still have time to spare after all this, London with shopping, shows and famous landmarks is just over an hour from Uckfield or Crowborough stations.
