Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Forest Row

Our Story


Welcome to Elms B&B, our family home since 2009. 

To us it is a sanctuary in the midst of our busy modern lives. It is also a haven of professional artistic expression, of quiet reading, of healthy food, of the Astrological Medicinal garden and of international visitors, friends and family.

The house dates back to 1875 and - built of locally quarried large blocks of solid stone-, it stands like an ancient stronghold on top of ‘Doctor’s Hill’ (as it is known by the older locals, who still remember it being ‘their’ Doctor’s house). Yet, step off the ‘Hill’ and find yourself in the heart of Forest Row.

Walk down the hill for any kind of yoga at YardYoga, or exquisite innovative food & craft beers at the HopYard. Meander further and discover a wide array of individual, privately owned shops and over 10 locations to tempt your taste buds.

Forest Row boasts a Film Society, offering a wide range of international Art films, you will find Organic & Biodynamic shops, Art galleries, and - within a 15 minutes cross country walk - you find yourself at Tablehurst Biodynamic Farm with delicatessen butcher shop or at the biodynamic egg farm, Orchard Eggs.

Forest Row is surrounded by countryside and the Ashdown Forest, in which you will find plenty of walking and cycling routes to enjoy. We will gladly lend you our OS maps to plan your days.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at Elms Bed & Breakfast,

with love,
