Surrounding Seven Acre Woods
Places to Go, Places to See
You can walk to our local village of Sedlescombe via the public footpaths directly from Seven Acre Woods and the several routes vary from 35 to 90 minutes. The Woodland Trust has some amazing walks through Brede High Woods and the history, scenic paths along with the wildlife and flowers, especially the bluebells, will amaze you all day long.
Right on the doorstep too is the Hastings Fishing Club which allows non-members as well as members and there is the amazing pub restaurant, The Queens Head, in the village which is run by the wonderful James and Gilly and serves fabulous food in atmospheric surroundings. As well there is a hotel, The Brickwall Hotel, that too you can dine and drink. There is the Village Post Office Store that supplies all your needs and you’ll too find an Antiques Store to browse and tennis courts along with a playpark and large recreation ground for exploring with children in tow. A major supermarket is within several miles to stock up on anything that our own Honesty Store or the Village Store may not have.
Below are the most local attractions you may find of interest, the links take your direct to their own website and onsite here in The Cubby you will find information, directions, maps and transport details for many attractions, walks and footpaths local to us.
Brede High Woods
Brede High Woods is home to astonishingly rare wildlife, diverse habitats and long-forgotten iron works. Roam the network of paths and rides through dense ancient woodland, open grassland and sandy heaths in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Hastings Fly Fishing Club
The 56 acre reservoir is stocked with rainbow trout of exceptional quality which have a reputation for being hard fighting and well proportioned fish. These rainbows are obtained from two fish farms. Hooke Springs Trout Farm, located in Dorset, has been in operation for forty years and Bibury Trout Farm in the Cotswolds is one of the oldest having been founded in 1902 Although there are sources nearer to us, we consider that these two farms produce the best stocks available in the UK. There is also a good head of resident brown trout which should be returned when caught.
