Sports and Adventure

Mayfield and Five Ashes offer many sports within the area: badminton, bowls, cricket, football, lawn tennis, rifle club and yoga as well as many other fitness activities in the local halls.

There are also many other sports facilities within a few miles, with a choice of gyms and leisure centres as well as rugby, hockey, athletics, cycling and running clubs.

Adventurous, sporting and recreational outdoor activities, for children and adults are also catered for at sites such as the Bewl Water (canoeing, kayaking, sailing, rowing, fishing, cycling), Bowles Centre (climbing, skiing, snowboarding), Knockhatch Park (cannon arena, adventure play area, boating, bungee trampoline, drop slide, go-karts, mini quads, laser game, waterslide) and GoApe in Bedgebury (high ropes and zip wires).  High Rocks, Harrison Rocks and Eridge Rocks are located just to the north and are renowned as climbing areas.

For those who enjoy jogging or cycling, two disused railway lines within a 30 minutes car drive, provide traffic-tree and fairly level tracks ideal for leisurely or family outings; while Bedgebury Forest provides challenging mountain bike trails.

Our area of Sussex is also endowed with a wide variety of interesting and beautiful golf courses, including the East Sussex National and the heathland Royal Ashdown Golf course.  The nearest golf course, Dewlands Manor, is less than 10 minutes away, while the nearest driving range is 15 minutes away at the Boars Head Golf Club.
