Ashdown Forest

Local Area

Forest Row takes its name from its close proximity to the Royal Ashdown Forest and has a population of about 5,500 people. Although it has grown significantly, a village atmosphere has been maintained and there is a wide range of shops and restaurants, an interesting mixture of old and new architecture and a diverse population.

The Village Hall is in the centre of the village and Forest Row is home to a large number of local craft fairs, art exhibitions classes and much more.  There are lots of clubs and there is always something going on.

Many leisure activities can be found in the area: Weir Wood Reservoir which is great for sailing, fishing and bird watching, the Royal Ashdown Golf Course, the Ashdown Forest are amongst the main activities available nearby.

Forest Row is well worth a visit as a village and a base for the Ashdown Forest, the Bluebell Railway and other local attractions.
