Landscape

The area around the B&B is fairly hilly, a combination of fields and woods and is covered with bluebells and snowdrops in the spring. There are marsh marigolds, violets, buttercups and cow parsley, as well as brambles and hedgerows. The woodlands are full of oaks, sweet chestnut, pine, sycamore, holly, silver birch and some coppiced chestnut. There is a gill running though the woods; a gill is a small ravine with water running through bottom, lined with trees on either side. It's a beautiful place for a walk and Jacqui encourages guests to go out and enjoy the land much as possible.

In Jacqui's previous home, they owned land with some wild orchids in their fields which they protected. Jacqui knows all about the local history of the area and can help guests learn about, and increase their appreciation of the area. There are ancient footpaths leading from a Roman Road at Edenbridge which goes over a hill and up to Ashdown forest- this was used by the Romans to take wood from the forest, make into charcoal and then use in the iron workings at Cowden; the same happened during the Napoleonic wars for making cannonballs. Hence the local names like Furnace wood and Hammerwood. A mile from the B&B is Dry Hill which was the site of a Roman Fort with wonderful views.

Along with her involvement in putting together the Ashdown forest itineraries, Jacqui is as accommodating as possible to guests that want to see and enjoy the landscape. She has a secure bike store and will hang wet clothes up overnight. There is a special place for boots and wellies.

Story behind the experience

Jacqui worked as a therapist for many years, but after their daughters moved out the house seemed too large. On holiday in Canada Jacqui and her husband stayed in a B&B, and suddenly it clicked! They have been running the B&B for about 14 years now, and her beautiful house, delicious breakfasts and fantastic hospitality have kept guests from all over the world coming back again and again.
