The Seed House next to the Bell Walk precinct where Magnet is to open a shop.

National retailer is coming to Uckfield

Magnet, the kitchen retailer, is coming to Uckfield.

It is moving into Unit 3 in The Seed House, in Bell Farm Road, next to the Bell Walk precinct, and at the opposite end of the building to Sussex Beds.

This part of The Seed House is currently being extended and is behind hoarding with homes being built above the shop units.


Hoarding surrounds the end of The Seed House where Magnet, the kitchen retailer, is to open a shop.

Unit 2 between Sussex Beds and Magnet is available to let and being marketed by SO Retail with details, including site plan, floor plan and marketing brochure, here.  

SO managing director Simon Odell says he thinks the unit would be great for a food/cafe type use as it has scope for some outside seating. “Perhaps a wine or specialist beer shop as I have seen a few of these opening up on other High Street locations.”


He adds that the unit has A1 general retail use so could suit a variety of businesses. It also has permission for D1 use so could also suit businesses such as a vet, small art gallery, education/tuition centre.

It is hoped that work on the building will be completed by the end of the year.
