Aldingbourne Country Centre


This Country Centre is fortunate to be located in one of the most scenic areas in the country and its Woodand Walk is home to a wide range of wildlife with tranquil, meandering walkways.

There is an exciting children's play area where children can explore and have fun in the woods. If you'd like to get even closer to the animals, take the time to meet the pony, pigs, goats, alpacas, guinea pigs and chickens - they're all friendly!

You can enjoy some retail therapy and feel good knowing that the money you spend is going to a wonderful cause. Aldingbourne make their own gifts and treats and work with local craftspeople to produce a range of beautiful products, from handmade greetings cards to ceramics, jewellery, toys, willow structures and carvings that will suit every taste.

If you'd like to combine a love of locally produced food and shopping, why not take away a selection of fresh vegetables grown on site? You can even buy recycled wood and timber materials and have your horse rugs or duvet cleaned.

There is free parking on site. If you are making a special journey, please contact the Trust as there may be certain days throughout the year when they are closed for training.

While Sussex by the Sea make every effort to ensure all information on this site is correct at the time of publishing we encourage all visitors to check the attraction's website or contact them direct before travelling, especially for information relating to prices / tickets, specialist information and opening times.
