The Hub is a functional shop, meeting place and Spa designed to meet the needs of a small rural community, as well as guests to the village.
It is a unique celebration of everything local. The products, the people and the place. Bringing these things together in one place, we aim to offer a great range of products showcasing local Food and drink, as well as art, crafts, activities, experiences and even camping equipment that can't be found anywhere else. Everything you find in here (with the exception of maybe Paracetamol and Nappies) has a story to tell.
In bringing all these people together and building network that works in a collaborative way we aim to support and promote other small businesses like our own, as well as supporting community projects and offering rural employment.
For our customers, friendly service, amazing products and experiences in a fun and sustainable environment.
The River Rother
The River Rother runs through the bottom of our 200 acre family farm. It meanders quietly through the valley flanked on either side by open farmland. The unpolluted waters, which guests are free to fish, offers a perfect habitat for all sorts of flora, fauna and wildlife. An ideal place to take a relaxing stroll. Here is a link to one of our local walks: www.highweald.org/downloads/publications/exploring-the-high-weald/11-miles-and-above-walks/905-bodiam-castle-walk/file.html
