Sedlescombe is situate in the High Weald area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Dating back to the reign of Edward the Confessor (1042–66). The Countess Godgifu was overlord of
Sedlescombe and the Domesday Book records that by 1086 the Norman nobleman Robert, Count of Eu held
the manor of Sedlescombe. The village name seems to derive from Old English 'setl' meaning a seat or
residence, and 'comb' meaning valley or low place. The village has a wonderful pub, village shop and the
famous and often very grumpy white geese who can be seen strolling casually across the road holding up the
traffic and grazing on the village green.
From the camp site, stroll down to the bottom field to join the public footpath that runs along the north edge,
cross over the River Brede and there you will find the village children's playground, tennis courts and a path
into the heart of the village centre.

Our shabby chic field, the venue for SunshinecampingUK can be found on the B2244 and is just 1⁄4 a mile
from the A21, 6 miles north of Hastings, the post code is TN33 0QX.
