Bluebell Railway Holiday Cottages Sheffield Park
VIGOES HOLIDAY HOMES
TN22 3RB England
Perfectly placed for the Bluebell Railway these Sheffield Park Holiday Cottages (refs 29887, 29895, 29896 and W43461) reside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the glorious Sussex countryside and once part of Vigoes Dairy Farm until the end of the 20th century. Set back from the road, each property has its own individual terrace with furniture, and to the rear of the buildings is a shared grassed area, beyond which is a paddock, an ideal place in which to let off steam, kick a ball around or have a leisurely picnic.
Spot deer, the occasional buzzard or the very rare short toed eagle! Walks and cycle routes beckon from the doorstep. See the beautiful Sheffield Park Gardens (NT) where, in the 1700s, Capability Brown was commissioned to landscape the gardens. A glorious feast of red and golds in the autumn and where the national collection of Ghent azaleas can be seen in their full glory in the spring alongside the bluebells. In 1876 the third Earl of Sheffield laid out a cricket pitch where the first ever match against Australia was played in 1884! The Bluebell Railway offers an opportunity to stroll amongst the locomotives in the engine sheds and perhaps spot ‘Stepney’ who appears in the Thomas the Tank Engine books, and of course take a train journey. Stroll through the Ashdown Forest which covers approximately 10 square miles and in fact is not all forest but largely heathland, where cattle and sheep also freely graze for part of the year. It is also famous for the Winnie The Pooh Stories written by AA Milne who lived on the northern edge of the forest with his son Christopher Robin. Attend Glyndebourne, visit the county town of Lewes with its museum, antique shops and brewery, or head to the coast at Brighton or Eastbourne across the South Downs. Horse riding available locally. Good rail connections to London from Haywards Heath for further sightseeing opportunities. Shop 1 mile, pub 1½ miles and restaurant 250 yards.
