Tablehurst Farm – Forest Row

Nestled in a stunning spot within this area of outstanding natural beauty, Tablehurst Farm is a hidden gem tucked away on the edge of Forest Row. A local community Co-op owns this biodynamic and organic farm and that is exactly how it feels. A warm welcome and real pride in what they are doing make this a wonderful place to visit. As well as being an open farm where you can explore at will, there is a wonderful café and farm shop, and a beautiful café garden with a wood-fired pizza oven and barbecue which are busy on Friday and Saturday lunchtimes in summer. Follow the farm’s Facebook page for details of the many other community events which take place here. Forest Row bike hire is made easy with Countrybike.

Just as amazing is that Tablehurst Farm is situated a stone’s throw away from the Forest Way off-road cycling route that runs from East Grinstead to Groombridge. This really is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle. Here you can take time to truly relax before exploring miles of countryside along the beautiful Medway river and away from the traffic.

The cafe garden always draws a crowd. It is a great place to kick back and relax.
