Visit East Sussex

Fletching is a very old (but very beautiful) village and our pretty-as-a-picture pub is surrounded by East Sussex’s most spectacular countryside.

There are bucket-loads of ways to while away those glorious holiday (or weekend away) hours.

If you’re keen on slipping on your walking boots and hitting the trail, there’s more than a handful of local routes to explore. Dogs are most welcome at the Griffin Inn, and we’re sure they’ll be happy with the tail-waggingly good walks on our doorstep.

Spring Farm Alpacas

Now, here’s a great activity if you’re looking to do something a little different.

Spring Farm offer alpaca (and llama) walking around their beautiful farm.Lots of laughs all round, and informative too –  you’ll learn all about alpacas, where they came from, and their daily routines.

It’s huge fun for everyone – and you even have to ‘pay’ your alpaca with carrots at the end of the journey. Does it get any better than that?

Sheffield Park & Garden

With acres of landscaped gardens, parkland and woodland to explore, it’s a blooming great day out in nature.

Sheffield Park is just a 5 minute drive from the pub, so it’s a super local day out.

There are regular workshops, talks and events and there are even some dog friendly routes too, so your pooch can join your outdoors adventure.

Ashdown Forest

Ashdown Forest is the most enormous (and free) outdoor space in the South East.

 It’s known as the ‘home’ of Winnie-the-Pooh, as these very woods inspired A.A.Milne’s classic tales. It is a perfect place for walking (and hunting woozles and heffalumps) and taking in the spectacular views of the Sussex countryside.

Bluebell Railway

Now, this is a fun day out. Riding 11 miles through Sussex on one of the first preserved heritage lines in the country is absolutely thrilling.

Learn about a bit about the history, and have a nose at the fab collections of vintage steam locomotives and carriages. Great fun for all the family.

Settle in for Your Stay

If all of that sounds a little bit like too much effort, then we can highly recommend an alternative.

Grab yourself a bottle of wine (the fancy kind) and something salty to nibble, and settle into our eye-boggingly beautiful garden. Now, that’s a sure-fire way to spend your downtime.

Cheers to that.
