Bluebell Railway operates historic steam trains on a 22-mile return trip between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead, calling at Horsted Keynes and Kingscote. In addition to a busy calendar of special events, the heritage railway also runs several premier dining trains, including the Golden Arrow, Wealden Rambler afternoon teas, fish and chip specials and ‘Rail Ale’ trains.
Acres of landscape garden – influenced by ‘Capability’ Brown and Humphry Repton – are bordered by historic parkland and woodland at this National Trust property. Four lakes have paths around them which circulate through glades and wooded areas. Special events are held regularly, do check the website for details, and you can enjoy a hearty lunch or light bite in the Coach House Tearoom and pick up a gift, souvenir or plant from the shop.
Bridge Cottage is a medieval Wealden hall house built around 1436 which has been restored as a heritage centre, and an educational and community hub for Uckfield and the wider area. Events held there include concerts, talks, school visits, and holiday activities for children.
The Llama Park is no longer JUST a place for llamas. We have free entry to our Restaurant and Coffee Shop, and a highly reputed Fashion and Gift Shop and if you want to pay to go into the park to see the animals we now have horses, Shetland ponies and donkeys as well as the llamas, alpacas and reindeer. Add to that mix our glorious pigs, sheep and a mischievous herd of goats with peacocks, guinea fowl, ducks, geese and turkeys and you have a wonderful place for a cup of tea, a roast lunch, a shopping day out and a lovely walk in 33 acres of beautiful land.
