Archant

There is so much to do in this newly-established tourist destination – from wine-tasting to historic houses, sporting activities to luxury hotels

Kingscote Valley, a new tourism destination covering 2,000 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside, is supported by Mid Sussex District Council and works in partnership with West Sussex County Council, East Grinstead Town Council & Tourism, East Grinstead Business Association and Ashdown Forest Tourism Association.

This magical and enchanting valley is steeped in history, rich with ancient woodlands, streams, lakes and vineyards, with a host of walks and trails. Other attractions include historic houses and the Bluebell Railway.

There are plenty of places to stay, including glamping or camping at Yoghurt Rooms, pub accommodation at The Cat Inn and luxury hotels Gravetye Manor and Alexander House Hotel.

National Trust property Standen, an historic Arts and Crafts home, is open to visitors and oenophiles will enjoy wine-tasting at Kingscote Estate.

There are plenty of opportunities for walking nearby and those of an active disposition can enjoy sailing at Weir Wood Sailing Club and cycling at Deer Leap Park.
