Ashdown Forest

Originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times, Ashdown Forest is now one of the largest free public access spaces in the South East. It is a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside. It is known the world over as the ‘home’ of Winnie-the-Pooh.

The Ashdown Forest has a fantastic rights of way network for you to explore and enjoy this rich heathland and woodland landscape. Find out more about walking through Ashdown Forest.
