| Events in Sharpthorne | 10 Places to Stay

A small village situated in The High Weald close to Ashdown Forest, with 100 year old brickworks set in 27 acres, to steam trains chugging through the countryside like a moving post card. There is plenty to see whether the glory of Wakehurst Place where the dramatic impact and explosion of colour no matter what time of year your visit, to the lakes, or footpaths meandering through gardens and wooded areas, or perhaps a trip around the historic Mansion House, it’s all here. If you wish to recapture the Victorian era of steam travel or the 1920’s, a visit to The Bluebell Railway will enthral the moment you climb aboard, with the steam billowing out as it forges ahead will transport you back in time. If you arrive on special days you may see Thomas The Tank Engine, or enjoy the splendours of dining on the ‘Golden Arrow’, steam travel has never been so much fun. With Ashdown Forest and castles such as Hever and Chiddingstone a few miles away, the magical days of steam, Winnie the Pooh and Knights on horse back are waiting just for you when you visit. whether walking, cycling, rambling or horse riding.
