Fletching is in the perfect position, a most attractive village just off the beaten track yet ideal for both the Ashdown Forest and Sheffield Park Gardens which the village backs on to, great for afternoon walks with the dogs.
Sheffield Park is a great landscaped garden created by Capability Brown in the 18th century and now owned by the National Trust. The Ashdown Forest stretches over 1400 acres and is immediately due north of Fletching. It was made famous by the stories about Pooh Bear. The forest offers extensive bridleways for both walkers and cyclists with magnificent views that draw the eye south and south east towards the South Downs.
You can pick up all the supplies you need for a picnic along with a great cup of coffee at the Fletching Village Stores which sells artisan breads, pastries, cakes and provisions..
May's House in the centre of Fletching offers relaxing pet-friendly group accommodation for up to ten guests in a traditional East Sussex setting. This beautiful 17th Century large holiday cottage sits between two delightful village pubs; The Griffin and The Rose both of which are dog friendly. Thoughtfully presented and styled, the house has plenty of character with an open outlook to the west across the Sussex countryside and a very private garden.
For a smaller group stay we also recommend the Shepherdess Sussex, which is a collection of simple, humble, charming dwellings of 2 recently refurbished Shepherds Huts along with barn & stables.
