The village of Felbridge borders Surrey and Sussex, found just North West of the old Sussex market town of East Grinstead. The village was established in 1856, although its history pre dates back to before Roman times, as the area was rich in iron. This then meant that three lakes were later created to power the growing industry, of which we still enjoy today.
Hedgecourt Lake is an ancient mill pond and the largest body of semi-natural open water in east Surrey. Alongside the lake is a nature reserve with many different plant and animal species. We particularly like Wire Mill Lake, another beautiful mill pond where you can go fishing, walking or water skiing. At the top end of the lake is a 15th Century Mill which is a pub and boutique hotel today. It’s the perfect spot for Sunday lunch, especially in the summer months, when you can sit out on the decking overlooking the lake.
Felbridge’s semi rural location is amongst some stunning countryside, you will never be short of parks and green opens spaces. Whether you’re a keen golfer visiting Chartham Park Country Club or taking the dogs for a walk at Oak Farm Playing Fields.
Felbridge offers a lot more than first meets the eye, with a wide range of activities on offer. Felbridge Show Ground for its horse jumping and dressage, Felbridge Garden Club with its allotments and club and Crawley Mariners Yacht Club for open water swimming and sailing.
