What's on

Learn how to make lace during our demonstrations

Every Wednesday, during the open season from April to October, come and enjoy demonstrations by our lace maker. You can even get hands on and have a go yourself. All ages welcome.


Woodland walks

After visiting Ashdown House and grounds why not explore our woods. Did you know that some our woodland is older than the house?

Tree trail

Families can follow our tree trail, using our handy map and markers, and learn all about the trees in Ashdown Woods. We also hold wood craft demonstrations every Wednesday from April to October.
