In addition to its dining options, The Swan also features six charming boutique rooms, providing the perfect base for exploring the countryside of the South East, including the nearby Ashdown Forest. Be sure to book direct for the best rates and enjoy the blend of classic English Inn ambiance and modern comforts.
Originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times, Ashdown Forest is now one of the largest free public access space in the South East. It is a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside and is known the world over as the 'home' of Winnie-the-Pooh.
Owner, Mike Ridley and his wife Jan created the gift and tea shop in 1978, a year earlier having used his skills as a potter to manufacture Winnie-the-Pooh ceramics under licence from Disney – with whom he eventually held a licence for over 10 years and met Christopher Milne on a number of occasions
