High Weald

L_033178Westhome B&B offers good value, private, relaxing accommodation with en-suite facilities for a couple, two people or a family of four. A continental breakfast using locally sourced produce is on offer where possible. Westhome is situated in the hamlet of Burwash Weald on one of the prettiest lanes in East Sussex, in the heart of the High Weald.

Through their business and lifestyle, the owners really try to understand what is important about this landscape. They can advise on what to visit and where to go, and one of their favourite activities as a family includes walking gently to Batemans, which takes an hour, and allows exploration of many features of the High Weald landscape. The kids adore Bodiam Castle, which is a twenty minute drive and very family orientated. It's always worth checking out National Trust events diary. They can potentially access gardens that are privately owned if requested. An interesting fact: Willingford Lane used to be a drove road and is of enormous historical interest apart from being one of the most beautiful lanes in the county.

Alison and Stephen Moody are firmly connected to this part of Sussex. Steve's family can be traced back many generations with his grandparents having worked for one family on Willingford Lane for a staggering 100 years. The fields and land are in Steve's blood. There was a period when 4 generations of the family lived at Westhome as recently as 2000. The family earn a living through a landscape business (Frogheath Landscapes) which in turn aims to generate work within a 25mile radius and it prides itself on the development of young staff made up of the very best of Sussex folk.
