Wonderful place to visit and take a ride on the old steam trains. Just a short drive from here. They also do all sorts of events - from murder mystery to lunch on the Pullman. Worth checking out or just paying a visit. The volunteers tend to be wonderful and full of local knowledge.

Loads to see and do. From fish and chips on the pier, walks along the sea front, shopping in the Lanes and eating in one of the may great restaurants. You can drive or we recommend taking the train from Haywards Heath as parking can be expensive. Trains are frequent and not expensive. Takes 15-20 mins.

Gorgeous old town to visit and wander. Lots to see and do, including visiting the castle, local walks, great shops (not all chains thankfully) and some nice eating spots too. Do take time to walk top to bottom of the high street and over the river. You can drive about 20-30 mins or take the train from Haywards Health.

If you like good coffee - great place for breakfast or any time of the day. Does a limited menu of lovely things. We buy their coffee too - they are ethical importers and we think its rather wonderful stuff. It's dog friendly and the wifi is good too.

Great home cooked food and delicious cakes. You won't be disappointed. Right next to Jeremys at Borde Hill - this is run by Jeremy's lovely wife Vira. Great for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. It has a garden out back too. Ideal if you go round the gardens at Borde Hill too. About 7 minute drive from us and just down the road from the local Linear guy and Yoga studio and classes too. Might be best to book if you are in a large group. They have a lovely big wooden table for large groups which is nice.

Lovely Bakery in the village - does great bread. Their Donke (which is a rye mix), sourdough and french white cob are all great. They do cakes and pastries too. Also sells some local meats, cheeses etc.

City/town information
Ardingly is a nice village - close to most things and lots of places to visit and things to do. We are not a tiny village, we are a decent size, we have a great bakery, two pubs, a Chinese take away, a tailor, small convenience store and hairdresser. The walks around here are great and we have the reservoir too. You are a short hop to places like Haywards Health (local town and railway station) it has restaurants, Waitrose, Sainsburies and shopping.

Wellbeing
They have a nice space with a pool which is both inside and outside - so very nice for sitting outside in the sunshine and a swim. The spa does day passes and often does deals which include lunch.
