Places to stay

Woodlands Cottage

Nymans Woodlands Cottage 

A stay at Woodlands Cottage surrounded by ancient woodland in the High Weald AONB is the perfect country retreat. Once the home of the estate game keeper, this picturesque cottage was built in 1868 and is situated in the heart of Nymans woodland. Beyond the woods, at the top of the hill, is Nymans itself, with its partially ruined house and world renowned garden.
