Find cottages in UckfieldVisit Uckfield

On the western edge of the Weald and less than 40 miles south of London, is the vibrant town of Uckfield. Its rural location is handy for exploring the pretty towns and villages in the Sussex countryside as well as day trips to the South Downs and coast.

In years gone past it was the resting place for pilgrims en route to Canterbury, Chichester and Lewes, in the late thirteenth century. Pudding Cake Lane in Uckfield is so named as it was a place where pilgrims would stop at an inn for slices of pudding cake and the oldest standing house in Uckfield, the 15th century Bridge Cottage, now houses a museum detailing the settlement's growth.

Unknown to many, Uckfield is home to an historical cinema; the Picture House cinema was established in 1915 and is still open today for those seeking adventure on the big screen. The movies are not the only way you will find a mystery to solve in Uckfield, as the town plays host to many a myth and mystery play.

For trivia lovers Uckfield was the last place that Lord Lucan was seen before his mysterious disappearance, and the fossilised remains that turned out to be the hoax of the Piltdown Man were presented in the area. To complete the trio there is a spooky barren woodland nearby that is said to be the home of Nan Tuck's Ghost, the ghost of a witch said to chase away visitors (let's hope not!).

Much more tangible is the beautiful countryside that surrounds Uckfield. West Parks, Hempstead Meadows and Harland's Pond are just some of the local nature reserves that are home to unusual flora and fauna, wetlands and the remains of Mesolithic settlements.

Whether you are looking for history, mystery or the beauty of Mother Nature, then Uckfield could be the perfect place for your break, so search for cottages in Uckfield and start planning your getaway today.

Norfolk Ref: PMMX

These beautifully presented single-storey holiday cottages stand elegantly in a courtyard of similar properties, within the grounds of the spectacular residence, Brantridge Park. From the moment the car passes through the gates winding through the lush meadows of bluebells and daffodils, guests feel as though they have stepped into a piece of British history. The main house, which all guests are welcome to visit, dates back to 1750, and for many years was the home of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, and was a favourite with many of the royal family. The splendid 5-acre landscaped gardens are a particular feature of the location - designed by Princess Alice, there are many hidden trails and paths leading to the 90 acres of woods and parkland. There is a small gym, reception area with tourist information, plentiful books and DVDs to borrow, games room with table football, table tennis, and a separate snooker room, as well as croquet, tennis, bowls and putting, making it the ideal retreat for couples or families. Found halfway between the village of Handcross and Balcombe, the properties are conveniently placed just 45 minutes from both Brighton and London, and about 20 minutes from Gatwick. Discover many NT homes and gardens, such as Leonardslee and Wakehurst Place, also discover The Bluebell Steam Railway and racing at Lingfield or Hichstead.
