Mayfield - things to see and do

Mayfield is a beautiful and unspoilt historic village. There is a vibrant village culture which is reflected in the wide variety of shops that serve the community.  Mayfield has an excellent village website (Click here) that provides up-to-date information of the activities and businesses in the locality.

Mayfield lies in the heart of the Sussex Weald where there are a myriad of things to do and see.

Country walks and the Ashdown Forest

Ashdown Forest is just a few miles away. The forest has open grazing, heathland, ancient iron workings, windmill, tumbledown stone mills, and of course all it’s associations to Winnie the Pooh.  It's an ideal place for walking, bird watching and just lazing the day away.  Beware of the sheep, and cattle that meander along the roads or the deer that leap across the road as you drive.

The Coast

The coast is little more than half an hour away at Brighton, with it’s myriad attractions; Eastbourne, which has a wonderful air show each August; and Hastings, home to the largest beach based fishing fleet in Britain and the cliffside funicular railway.


Inland Towns and London


Other towns well worth a visit include the Georgian spa town of Tunbridge Wells with the famous Pantiles, and fascinating Lewes, the County Town of Sussex, home to Harveys brewery and the most spectacular fireworks celebrations every November the fifth. If you fancy a theatre trip then London is only an hour away by Train, . A little further afield there are National Trust properties in abundance, such as Scotney Castle with its fantastic early summer display of rhododendrons and azaleas, Sheffield Park and the nearby Bluebell Railway, or at Burwash there is Batemans, once the home of Rudyard Kipling.
