“A lively, friendly village with great local shopping and schools, and buses to the big towns nearby.“

Welcome to Forest Row

What’s it like?

Forest Row is a vibrant village with a unique atmosphere, where properties go fast because of its fabulous combination of well-regarded state and private schools (including the Michael Hall Rudolf Steiner School), range of beautiful houses, sports clubs and facilities, sailing and fishing at Weirwood Reservoir, golfing at Royal Ashdown Golf Club, cycling along the Forest Way, and 6400 acres of Ashdown Forest to explore.

Theres plenty for families to do, from the two fantastic play areas in the village to swimming and a play centre at The Kings Centre in nearby East Grinstead, and Ashdown Llama Farm. Or take a trip to Winnie the Pooh country at Hartfield, where you can play a game of Pooh Sticks at Pooh Sticks Bridge before stopping off at one of the two excellent pubs.

In Forest Row, quirky shops and places to eat including independent coffee shops offering delicious home-made cake, a health food shop and deli, Hop Yard Brewing Company with Yard Yoga, smoothies and coffee, the award-winning Fine & Scandi Scandinavian Street Kitchen, galleries, and alternative therapy centres add a very special atmosphere to the village.
