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.

These semi-detached holiday properties (refs 29887, 29895 and 29896) reside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set back from the road, each property has its own individual terrace with furniture, and to the rear of the buildings is a shared grassed area, beyond which is a paddock, an ideal place in which to let off steam, kick a ball around or have a leisurely picnic. Walks and cycle routes beckon from the doorstep. See the beautiful Sheffield Park Gardens (NT) where, in the 1700s, Capability Brown was commissioned to landscape the gardens. A glorious feast of red and golds in the autumn and where the national collection of Ghent azaleas can be seen in their full glory in the spring alongside the bluebells. In 1876 the third Earl of Sheffield laid out a cricket pitch where the first ever match against Australia was played in 1884! The Bluebell Railway offers an opportunity to stroll amongst the locomotives in the engine sheds and perhaps spot ‘Stepney’ who appears in the Thomas the Tank Engine books, and of course take a train journey. Stroll through the Ashdown Forest which covers approximately 10 square miles and in fact is not all forest but largely heathland, where cattle and sheep also freely graze for part of the year. It is also famous for the Winnie The Pooh Stories written by AA Milne who lived on the northern edge of the forest with his son Christopher Robin. Attend Glyndebourne, visit Lewes or head to the coast at Brighton or Eastbourne. Horse riding and golf available locally. Good rail connections to London from Haywards Heath for further sightseeing opportunities. Shop 1 mile, pub 1½ miles and restaurant 250 yards.
