Batsford Hollow

Stunning Retreat Venue for Hire

in the heart of the High Weald AONB in East Sussex

Located at the far end of the main lake, this space is available for overnight stays for group bookings.

This biodiverse area is sensitively managed to protect the natural world. The facilities for visiting groups have been shaped with this ethos.

We welcome groups who wish to use the space for retreats, appreciation of the natural world and to simply unwind and reconnect with the beauty of the surroundings.
