Description: 220 acre mix of woodland, pasture and lake
Farmer(s): Bob Felton and Liz Wallis


Donated to the CRT in 2013 by the late Alison Mountain. Located in the Ashdown Forest and within the High Weald area of outstanding natural beauty, the farm is in a truly magical location.

Twyford Farm is a beautiful 220 acre mix of woodland, pasture and lake which was recently donated to the Countryside Restoration Trust (CRT) by the late Alison Mountain in 2013.

The farm is made up of a mixture of small grass meadows and ancient woodland rich in wildlife such as Roe and Fallow Deer, rare birds such as the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and Marsh Tit and rare flora such as the Ivy Leaved Bellflower. During the first fortnight of May, there is an eruption of Bluebells which is quite breathtaking.

Bob Felton and Liz Wallis are the Tenant Farmers at the property.

Twyford Farm is best approached from the main A22 London/Eastbourne trunk road at the Wych Cross crossroads (traffic lights operate at these crossroads and the Roebuck Hotel is a landmark), turn west towards Sharpthorne along Hindleap Lane and approximately one mile on turn left going south into Twyford Lane and Twyford Farm is found approximately one mile down the lane on the right hand side.
