Wimbles Farm B&B

Foords Lane Vines Cross Horam Heathfield East Sussex TN21 9HA 01435 810 390

We say

This charming family-run farm B&B lies on the fringes of the famous Sussex High Weald and is the perfect base for exploring the best of the countryside around as well as the south coast. Set beside an idyllic lake, gracious hosts, the Ramsay-Smith family, ensure guests want for nothing. Each well-appointed room comes with everything you could need, including tea-and coffee-making facilities, wifi, bathrobes, towels and toiletries, while catering comes courtesy of the farm's own organic veg patch and livestock. The hidden gem though is the straw eco-lodge which overlooks the tranquil lake – an ideal retreat for creative writing, yoga or meditation. Wimbles also boasts an adjoining campsite which is a perfect place for a spot of wild camping if you're not sure you can bear the potential discomforts; or you could try glamping in their well-appointed shepherds' hut.
