The Olde Forge Hotel and Restaurant, once the home of an old forge, still maintains its original open fires and timber beams. The hotel, with all its charm and character offers guests a relaxing haven away from the busy stresses of every day life. 

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Wealden countryside this family owned and run hotel offers a warm welcome and friendly, informal atmosphere.   The restaurant is renowned locally for its high standard of cuisine and service. 

At the Olde Forge Hotel and Restaurant you are close many National Trust properties such as Batemans and Wakehurst Place, historic castles Bodiam and Herstmonceux as well as glorious gardens the like of Nymans, Sheffield Park and Sissinghurst.  Web links to these and many others can be found on the Local Attractions page of our own website. 

The resorts of Brighton, Eastbourne, Battle and Rye are only a short distance away with Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters, part of the new South Downs National Park also close by, with the 160km South Down Way following the old routes and droveways along the ridges of the South Downs starting in Eastbourne itself.
