On the East Sussex-Kent border lays the rural market town of Crowborough, a town situated in the Weald area of outstanding natural beauty. The Weald is an area lying between the North and South Downs, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty due to its importance to local wildlife.

Hills, hedges, forests and fields all form part of this space, which at its heart includes Ashdown Forest. As the largest public space in the South East, it’s very popular with tourists, who enjoy the walks, grazing cattle, deer spotting, and tea rooms dotted around the large area.

There is also a literary connection here, with AA Milne setting his Winnie The Pooh stories in the forest, while Crowborough itself was once home to Sherlock Holmes author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, whose statue lies in the town centre. With the spa Town of Royal Tunbridge Wells close by, The Crowborough area is a great place for a day out.
