Heathfield is an attractive market town standing on a ridgeway surrounded by beautiful rolling Sussex countryside. It is almost equidistant from Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne, approximately 16 miles.
Heathfield has a busy high street with a variety of small local independent shops as well as supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. There is a good range of bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation available in Heathfield as well as hotels in nearby Buxted, Uckfield and Rushlake Green.
Historically, Heathfield lay on an ancient trackway (The Ridgeway), connecting the South Downs with the Weald. Its market charter was granted in February 1316 during the reign of Edward II. The Wealden iron brought prosperity to the town during the 16th/17th centuries; the coming of the railway (the Cuckoo Line) in 1880 gave it another new lease of life. It became known as the Cuckoo Line because traditionally, the first cuckoo of spring was released from a cage at Heathfield Fair. The trackbed is now named the Cuckoo Trail, part of the National Cycle Network.
The town holds an annual fair named the Heffle Cuckoo Fair each April, the annual Heathfield show takes place each May in the summer. Heathfield is the home of Heathfield Community College, as well as several primary schools in the area and 2 pre-schools.
Opposite the college is a leisure centre, there is a football field and beside it a children’s playground. At near-by Cross-in-Hand there is a rugby club for adults and children. The annual Heathfield & District Agricultural Show is the calendar bringing thousands of visitors.
The local bus network links visitors to main towns and villages
and to the coastal resort of Eastbourne. There is also train
stations within proximity of the town including Buxted Train
Station (7.8 miles) and Uckfield Train Station (8.8) which
provide links to Crowborough, East Croydon & London Bridge.
