To discover what’s on in East Sussex then please go to the Visit England website. This will give you a taste of some of the things on offer. We are close to the border of Kent and many of the county’s attractions are just a short drive away.



Visit the historical village of Mayfield with buildings all higgledy-piggledy that span the centuries.

Hear about the legend of St Dunstan while enjoying breakfast at the Pink Cabbage or, after exploring the village, lunch at the Middle House.


If the weather is nice make sure to sit in the garden to enjoy the stunning views of Sussex countryside.  Before leaving don’t forget to stock up at Truffles Bakery and browse the tempting delicacies in the MH delicatessen.

Closer to home we are extremely lucky to have Whites Garden and café on Meres Lane which is well worth a visit, do mention us to Chris and Jo.



Once a market town but still buzzing with independent shops. These include;

a greengrocer providing local seasonal produce, Pomfrets the butcher, a fishmongers (Sussex by the Sea), and Cuculuo Delicatessen with a wide selection of cheeses, some coming from our very own Five Ashes award wining Alsop and Walker plus lots more tempting goodies.  There is a wide range of “Take Aways” and for a nice treat we love the authentic Greek restaurant, Pilio.

If you need your “shopping fix” we have Sue’s shoes, Farrago and No 37 who will kit out your new wardrobe.

Lastly, but perfect on a rainy day for browsing, are several antique, bric-a-brac and gift shops.




If you enjoy walking then this is an ideal location- we have several footpaths crossing the farm, including circular walks to Mayfield and Heathfield. We are also part of the Sussex Diamond Way.




We are surrounded by iconic gardens including Great Dixter at Northiam, as well as Sissinghurst Castle Gardens and Pashley Manor Gardens that specialises in tulips in the spring, roses in the summer and dahlias in the autumn along with exhibits by local artists.
