Pevensey Castle

Pevensey Castle

Pevensey Castle is a great family day out in East Sussex, encompassing rich history and fun things to do and see for adults and children. With a history stretching back over 16 centuries, Pevensey Castle chronicles more graphically than any other fortress the story of Britain’s south coast defences.

Beginning in the 4th century as one of the last and strongest of the Roman ‘Saxon Shore’ forts, two-thirds of whose towered walls still stand. It was the landing place of William the Conqueror’s army in 1066. During the century after the Conquest a full-scale Norman castle, with a great square keep and a powerful gatehouse, was built within one corner of the fort. In the 1250s the towered bailey wall was constructed, and soon put to the test during the great siege of 1264.

Belle Tout Lighthouse

Belle Tout Lighthouse

Belle Tout Lighthouse is a guest house and a unique place to stay.

Belle Tout was built in 1832 and the location of the lighthouse was carefully planned so that the light was visible for 20 miles out to sea and that the light would be obscured by the edge of the cliff if sailors were too close to the shore.

Over the years erosion of the cliff reduced the effectiveness of the lighthouse and in 1902 Belle Tout was decommissioned when the new lighthouse built at the base of the cliffs came into service.

In 1999, due to continuing erosion threatening the future of the building the lighthouse was moved 17 metres (56 feet) back from the edge of the cliff by the impressive engineering work of Abbey Pynford.

In April 2008 Belle Tout was purchased by David and Barbara Shaw with the intention of opening it to the public as a bed & breakfast and tourist centre.

Bluebell Railway

Bluebell Railway

Preserved steam trains running through the heart of Sussex. Steam-hauled trains run between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead

The volunteer-run Bluebell Line was the UK’s first preserved standard gauge passenger railway, re-opening part of the Lewes to East Grinstead line of the old London Brighton & South Coast Railway in 1960. Since then it has developed into one of the largest tourist attractions in Sussex, yet it still remains true to its objectives of the preservation for posterity of a country branch line, its steam locomotives, coaches and goods stock, signalling systems, stations and operating practices.
A steam train ride on the Bluebell is one of the top things to do with kids on holiday for a day out in Sussex (the line crosses the border between East Sussex and West Sussex, and is not far from Surrey). This heritage railway is close to Haywards Heath, Gatwick Airport, Uckfield, Brighton and Lewes, in the Ashdown Forest/Mid Sussex area of England. Your children will love to take our vintage steam rail trip during your vacation.

Glyndbourne

Glyndbourne

Glyndebourne is an English country house, the site of an opera house that, since 1934, has been the venue for the annual Glyndebourne Festival Opera.

Founded in 1934 by John Christie and his opera singer wife, Audrey Mildmay, Glyndebourne is committed to presenting opera of the highest quality, commissioning new work, developing new talent and reaching new audiences. Crucially, Glyndebourne has remained financially independent since 1934.

Surrounded by the rolling hills of the South Downs, you get the chance to explore the beautiful gardens and White Cube at Glyndebourne, a temporary art gallery, before you go into our 1,200-seat indoor auditorium.

The interval lasts 90 minutes, giving you plenty of time to take in those stunning views again over a picnic and a glass of bubbly, or to enjoy a spot of dinner at one of our onsite restaurants and visit the Glyndebourne Shop.

There is no dress code but people do like to dress up for the Festival – a tradition that started as a mark of respect to the performers.

Our organic farm shop has a wonderful selection of organic treats including fresh local produce. The Stable Tea Rooms provide light lunches and cream teas.

There’s a craft shop, and camping and caravanning. Entrance is free into to the farm.

Judged in 2008 to be one of England’s most beautiful farms.

The museum shows the flow of change in the farming and domestic ways of life of the families who have lived here – from the first farmer in 1830 to the demise by his grandchildren’s generation in the 1950s.

The Butler family took over, and despite the many changes and pressures in agriculture, have kept the farm unspoilt and in the condition it was originally designed.

Location

Heaven Farm is positioned near to the beautiful Ashdown Forest, and many other popular attractions including the Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park Gardens and the Ashdown Forest Llama Farm.

Our camping facilities are an idea base for exploring the area, or just relaxing on the farm.
