Being based in East Sussex means that there is no shortage of places to go, things to do, events to attend and fantastic places to eat.  You'll find one visit just won't be enough! The links to the pages below set out some just to get you started.

The farm is a quiet haven away from it all and the birds and wildlife can be seen and heard as you sit outside.  There are many good walks from the farm and surrounding country. There are also a fair few pubs which you can plan your walk around too!  The farm can be easily found with Graywood signed from East Hoathly village.
