What makes this area so special

Bodle Street Green is a small village in the Sussex Weald. Ideal for families, couples or groups who want a relaxing base, The Old Stores is in a great location. In beautiful countryside, but yet an easy drive to the coast with unspoilt beaches and all the fun of the local seaside towns. Also close to the historic 1066 country with a multitude of ancient castles, tranquil gardens, picture book towns, adventure parks and zoos, steam trains and so much more - there is something to do for all ages and tastes.
There are some lovely National Trust properties such as Rudyard Kipling’s house, Batemans, wonderful gardens at Pashley Manor, Bedgebury Pinetum and Sissinghurst Castle, all within half an hour. Ashburnham Place, Michelham Priory and Herstmonceux Castle are also close to The Old Stores.
The Herstmonceux Observatory Science Centre is a must to visit. It’s the former home of The Royal Greenwich Observatory, where astronomers studied the universe from the 1950s to 1980s. Set amid beautiful Sussex countryside, the site offers a stimulating and unique environment for all ages.
The charming towns of Battle, Hastings and Eastbourne are approximately twenty minutes away. Hastings Old Town is fascinating and Eastbourne has its new marina. The spectacular rugged chalk coastline of the Sussex Heritage Coast is a 40 minute drive away. Seven Sisters and Cuckmere Haven are also well worth a visit. There are good bike rides on The Cuckoo Trail and lots for the children to do at Knockhatch Adventure Park and Drusillas Zoo.
Alternatively, just sit back and take it easy on Eastbourne’s Blue Flag Beach whilst the children explore hidden pebble coves, splash merrily in the rock pools or even try their hand at shrimping. For the more adventurous, experience the thrills of watersports at Hastings (30 minute drive). For nature lovers, Pevensey Levels are a haven for interesting birds, wild flowers and even hares.
Tunbridge Wells is just a 30 minute drive away with its stunning architecture and excellent shopping centre, where of course you can also ’take the waters’ of the revitalising Chalybeate Spring that the town is renowned for.
