Two cosy bedrooms make this cottage ideal for both families and couples looking to experience the wonderful Ashdown Forest. Less than a quarter of a mile from the edge of the Forest, the cottage is ideally located to enjoy this internationally important heathland environment. Deer, stonechats and the enigmatic nightjar are all wildlife you might see during your stay.
Ashdown Forest dates back to Norman times, when it was established as a royal hunting forest, and has a fascinating history including iron working, rabbit farming and grazing by commoners. The knowledgeable and dedicated B&B hosts have a thorough understanding of the area and its importance, and are happy to discuss such things as the delicate ecological and management balance of the Forest with you.
Located on picturesque country roads ideal for cycling, the cottage also has good public transport links and is ideal for guests who want to leave their car at home. There are innumerable walks around the B&B and the wider Ashdown Forest. One fascinating local landmark well worth a visit is Nutley Windmill, and the tourist attractions of the Ashdown Llama Farm and Bluebell Steam Railway are also nearby. Other local activities include golf, fishing and horse-riding.
