Old Lodge

Open vistas of heather, with areas of pine woodland, set in the Ashdown Forest

Old Lodge lies in the heart of the Ashdown Forest, and its character is subtly but notice­ably different from the true lowland heath of Iping Common. The geology is slightly different, but more importantly it sits about 500 feet higher, and that’s enough to make it markedly cooler. Old Lodge has something of the ‘feel’ of a place one might associate with the north west of Britain.
