An ancient area of woodland covering over 10 square miles of tranquil open heathland and deciduous woodland

Located in the South of England, the Wealden area lies within the Weald and includes two landscape areas – the AONB High Weald (a medieval landscape of wooded, rolling hills studded with sandstone outcrops; small, irregular-shaped fields; scattered farmsteads; and ancient route ways) and the Low Weald (a quintessentially medieval wooded, watery and low-lying undulating landscape). Weald is derived from Old English and means forest. In the Anglo Saxon period, the area had the name Andredes Weald, meaning the forest of Andred, the latter derived from Anderida which is the Roman name of present day Pevensey.

Stretching 35 miles from north to south, Wealden includes the iconic Seven Sisters coastline, the South Downs National Park and the High Weald area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Attractive villages offer you a warm welcome where you will see flint, timber and thatched buildings which reflect the heritage of the local area.
