This unusual property was built for the Queen of Bohemia in 1662

Ashdown House with its dolls house appearance, built by Lord Craven, is set in a beautiful valley and surrounded by woodland for you to explore.  There are glorious views of the house from Weathercock Hill (opposite) so it is well worth the steep climb up and across the field across the road.  But if that sounds a bit too strenuous you can also appreciate the strange architecture by wandering through the woods and coming across an equally delightful view of it at house level!

Continue through the wood in an westerly direction and over a style and you will come across Alfred’s Castle – an iron age settlement.
