We are thrilled to have teamed up with The Sussex Wildlife Trust to host a range of events throughout the year as part of our 'Elite in Residence' programme. 

As a conservation charity with over 30,000 members, The Sussex Wildlife Trust focuses on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found in our towns, countryside and coast.
Set in the heart of the Ashdown Forest, with over 186 acres of our own, we are home to an abundance of wildlife, from deer, bats and owls to rare butterflies which can be found in our SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

Our series of in-residence events will give you an opportunity to sample a taste of Ashdown Park and get closer to nature with fine food, fascinating talks and unique walks.
