Not only does Mayfield have a good range of local shops providing all the basic necessities but it also has a range of independent retailers and boutiques offering individual styles and local products in fashion, interior design, jewellery, wooden ware, pet accessories, gifts and souvenirs.  Go to the High Street page and you will see the huge range of items available.

For those looking for more individual and quirky shops, we recommend:

  • Lewes (18 miles away) with its antique shops in Cliffe High Street and book shops in the main High Street
  • Brighton (27 miles away) with its well-known Lanes area, "a fabulous maze of twisting alleyways", specialising in antiques, jewellery, contemporary and designer clothes

There are also major shopping centres at Tunbridge Wells, Eastbourne and Hastings.

The nearest major supermarkets to Mayfield and Five Ashes are at Heathfield (Co-op, Sainsbury's. Waitrose) and Crowborough/Jarvis Brook (Lidl, Morrisons, Tesco, Waitrose)
