Set between the South Downs and Ashdown Forest, Uckfield provides easy access to acres of beautiful Sussex countryside, while at the same time offering speedy transport links to London and the South Coast.
Uckfield developed from small beginnings as a stopping off point for 13th century pilgrims travelling between Canterbury and Chichester. It still has many historical buildings which link today's thriving and friendly town to its fascinating past.
The many attractions for would-be residents include the lively mix of family and high-street shops and restaurants, the award-winning cinema (which regularly live-streams from London theatres, Glyndebourne and La Scala), the excellent sports facilities (including a large and well equipped leisure centre), the East Sussex National Golf Club and the many highly-rated state and independent schools in the area.
Uckfield is surrounded not only by idyllic countryside but also by attractions and beauty spots including Boothland Wood, Hadlow Down, Bentley Wildfowl Museum, Bluebell Railway and Nutley Windmill.
Uckfield and the many surrounding villages offer an attractive mix of rural beauty combined with modern amenities and mainline commuter links.
