Ashdown Forest

Ashdown Park is situated in the heart of the Ashdown Forest. It's a High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has national and international protection because of its wildlife. Nearly two-thirds of its 6500 acres (2500 hectares) are heathland, amounting to 2.5% of the UK's extent of this rare habitat.

Originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times, Ashdown Forest is now one of the largest free public access space in the South East. It is known the world over as the 'home' of Winnie-the-Pooh.

Bedgebury National Pinetum & Park

First mentioned in an Anglo-Saxon Charter and named after the earliest listed resident in the 1400s, Mr John de Bedgebury; Bedgebury began to be shaped into the 350 acre Pinetum we have today in the 19th Century.
Governing bodies including Forestry Commission and Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew have used the space to save specimens and home new tree species.

Recent climate change has increased the scientific importance of the collection and our team have gained an international reputation for their extensive knowledge of conifers and their propagation. The National Pinetum has recently signed memoranda of understanding with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to simplify the transfer of specimens and information.

Visiting from Ashdown Park: 45 minutes by car.
