Guests visit a local farm on their Nutley Edge supported holiday

A week of history and adventure

Our summer activity breaks are officially underway, starting off with a week full of historical experience on our “Sightseeing” themed break.

On Monday morning, our guests kick started their break with a trip to Oast Farm, a family-run fruit farm, shop, and café, where they had the chance to potter around the shop and enjoy a delicious lunch.

On Tuesday, guests had a day to soak up the beautiful countryside at our Nutley Edge grounds. We explored the on-site nature trail (successfully dodging the rain showers) and spent the afternoon playing “Royal Bingo” and learning facts about the local history in our East Sussex Quiz.

The following day, we explored 700 years of history and award-winning gardens at the romantic double-moated 13th century Hever Castle, which was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn. Despite hours spent roaming the grounds and castle, our group still had energy to party the night away back at Nutley Edge!


Despite a late night, everyone managed to get up early for a ride on the historic Bluebell Railway.

We ended the week with a trip to Middle farm and a picnic in the sun.
