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.

Warren Cottage Ref: 30630


Dating back to 1350 with exposed timbers, brickwork and an impressive fireplace with woodburner, this enchanting Grade II listed, end of terrace cottage with surprisingly good ceiling heights, is located a short stroll from Mayfield High Street, with its pubs, coffee shops, florist, bakers, deli, butchers and fine dining eateries. Described as one of the finest villages in East Sussex, the medieval buildings were funded by the profits of the 16th and 17th century Sussex Iron Industry. Famous for the legend of St Dunstan, formerly a blacksmith who said to have tweaked off the devils nose with a fire iron! Come and see the Mayfield Bonfire Boys and Belles, one of the oldest bonfire organisations in the country, who arrange a noisy, colourful torch light procession and firework display in the Autumn, taking you back to 1550 and the Sussex Martyrs and the start of this tradition. Once the iron industry faded Mayfield became a hotbed of smuggling, known as ‘owlers’ the farmers smuggled wool out of the country and returned with brandy and silk! Mayfield also holds a bi-annual festival including classical, jazz and Broadway music with lectures and an art exhibition. An excellent walking and cycling territory with a 3 mile circular walk around the village or slightly further afield, explore the Cuckoo Trail, Bewl Water and Bedgebury Pinetum. Battle Abbey, Batemans, Rudyard Kipling’s home (NT) and Charleston Farm house are well worth visiting. Enjoy beautiful walks with over 50 miles of footpaths and bridal ways, where there are many historical sites to be seen along the way. Nearby, there is a large park with plenty to do for the children. Train enthusiasts can take a journey on the Bluebell Railway or the Kent and East Sussex steam railway. Fishing and golf are also available locally. The Spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is 10 miles. Good rail links from Wadhurst to London where you will arrive in an hour.
