Wealden covers over 300 square miles of rural East Sussex and is one of the most rural areas in England. Nearly two-thirds is recognised as being a national landscape quality, boasting the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the South Downs National Park. The core appeal to visitors is its beautiful, varied and unspoilt landscapes and views. It had undeveloped coastal cliffs, beaches, and countryside that varies from ancient woodland, forests and heathfield to patchwork of medieval fields, parklands, and open rolling downs.
Surrounded by woodland on all but one side, Sunninglye Farm has seven Feather Down lodges within a shady hilltop copse. Each lodge faces outwards with views across the surrounding fields and woodland, ideal for a glamping family holiday in Kent. Visitors are always pleasantly surprised by the peacefulness of the setting, and younger children are free to climb and swing and play safely among the trees near the lodge.
Near the pretty copse where the lodges are located is Rocky Field, home to the nature watch hideout for spotting badgers, foxes, and deer. A little further on is the private pond for messing about with Sunninglye's old boats. There is also Sunninglye's amazing raft building activity, available on request. Donkey and cart rides, kayaking, the Wildlife Challenge, and pony care are just some of the other things to try during your stay. Horse riding can be booked nearby as well.
The towns and villages of Wealden welcome everyone with their very own unique charm. Visit the castle dating back to Roman times in Pevensey or head to Polegate which is the start of the Cuckoo Trail that stretches 14 miles north to Heathfield. The area also offers many fishing and golf opportunities in the area. Why not take the little ones out for the day to Drusilla Park, widely known as the best small zoo in Europe!
