The East Sussex region
HORAM (Oakhurst Granary is just at the edge) is a village situated in the Weald of Sussex, once part of a vast forest of 1700 square miles situated between the North Downs and the South Downs of south-east England. The Weald is now a land of green fields, arable farmland and small woods, as nothing is left of the ancient forest except for a few sites which are now of scientific interest.
The southern slopes of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty touch Horam on its northern fringe. Old established rights of way allow you to walk in the fields and woods on routes defined by small yellow waymarks nailed to gates and stiles, or by signposts and unusual concrete marker stones.
It is possible to find peace and solitude in Horam's countryside even though you are never far from habitation. The landscape is cut by streams which have carved valleys, by trees and hedgerows, and by narrow winding lanes. The main stream is the Waldron Ghyll (or Gill) which is a headwater of the River Cuckmere.
Oakhurst Granary is in the middle of the The High Weald Area and the South Downs National Park. The South Downs National Park represents one of the richest and most stunningly complex landscapes in England. As Britain's newest National Park, it stretches from the outskirts of Winchester in the west to the cliffs of Beachy Head near Eastbourne in the east. Best-known for its natural beauty, few people realise just how much history lies beneath their feet from prehistoric burial mounds to Iron Age HIillforts and registered battlefields.
Guest should visit Beachy Head the UK's highest chalk sea cliff features at the western end of Eastbourne seafront in the new South Downs National Park and Seven Sisters Country Park. We have leaflets on the lighthouse, Beachy Head Countryside Centre, Beachy Head pub and boat trips to the iconic Beachy Head light house.
We also encourage our guest to visit the The Seven Wonders of the Weald to the north of the granary which are a cluster of tourist attractions based around seven settlements in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Seven Wonders of the Weald are unique places to visit and only a short drive from one another, offering ample opportunity to discover and enjoy several attractions while visiting and staying in the area. From the beautiful gardens at Marle Place to the 200 acre forest at Bedgebury with a wide range of outdoor activities, there is plenty to choose from to plan a day or several days out in the area.
The Seven Wonders of the Weald - Bedgebury National Pinetum & Forest, Chiddingstone Castle, Marle Place Gardens & Gallery, The Mill Toy and Pedal Car Museum, The Kent & East Susssex Railway, Penshurst Place & Gardens and Biddenden Vineyard - are all within easy reach of Royal Tunbridge Wells.
Also worth a visit are the beautiful National Trust properties nearby like:
Jacobean House home of Ruyard Kipling in Burwash only 10 miles from the Granary or visit
was the Bohemian home and country meeting place for writers, painters and artists known as the Bloomsbury group.
Tucked away on a cobbled street in the heart of the bustling town of Rye a home of high society.
