The local area guide to living in Hartfield

Just up the road from Ashdown Forest lies Hartfield, a petite village and civil parish in the stunning county of East Sussex. Though Hartfield may be small, the parish itself contains the following settlements: Holtye, Hammerwood, and Colemans Hatch.

The parish is an ideal hub for professional commuters as it is set 20 minutes south-west of Royal Tunbridge Wells, 38 minutes west of Crawley, 35 minutes north-west of Gatwick Airport and just over an hour and 40 minutes from the Big Smoke. Families are also lured into the village as the educational facilities in the area are quite excellent.

One of Hartfield’s most notable residents was A.A. Milne, the author of the beloved Winnie the Pooh books. In honour of this, a delightful village shop by the name of Pooh Corner sells all manner of memorabilia. His former home, Cotchford Farm, is also located near the village.

Other notable attractions in and around the area include Bolebroke Castle, which was built in 1480 and granted Grade 2 Protected Status. Its most famous resident was Henry VIII, who often used it as a hunting lodge. If you wish to discover more ancient buildings, Hever Castle and Gardens is also situated nearby.

Information about the local residents

As per the 2011 Census, 2,179 residents call the parish of Hartfield home. The Census also recorded 892 households in the area, which are mostly detached and semi-detached properties.

Hartfield is home to a high number of families– 76.4% of all households to be precise. This is due to the excellent schools, outdoor opportunities and quality of life in the village. In addition, over half of the population are in employment (52.4%) and the majority tend to commute to work in the surrounding area or further afield.

Nearby schools

Parents will be delighted to know that a number of institutes can be found within Hartfield and the surrounding area. At the primary level, pupils can attend the only school within the village, St Mary the Virgin Church of England Primary School. The institute teaches students from the age of 4 until 11 and currently has 104 pupils on its roll. Although the school boasts excellent achievements at Level 4, Ofsted did notice that the school requires improvement.

If, however, you’re after a school with excellent Ofsted reports, Groombridge St Thomas' CofE Primary School in Groombridge and St Michael's Primary School in Withyham are two excellent options.

For secondary education, pupils will have to venture to the neighbouring settlements for school. Popular options include The Sackville School in East Grinstead and The Skinners’ School in Royal Tunbridge Wells, which is excellent academically and highly praised by Ofsted!

Getting around

Although Hartfield is petite, it boasts excellent connections to the surrounding area and further afield. Several buses serve the village and connect it with towns such as Crawley and Royal Tunbridge Wells. Buses are reliable, frequent and great for commuters who don’t drive.

For those who do drive, the B2026 and B2110, which connect with the A22 and A26 roads, provide swift access to nearby settlements and major hubs. Unfortunately, the train station in Hartfield closed in 1967 during the Beeching Cuts. Ashurst, Cowden and Eridge are the nearest settlements with mainline stations. From here, trains can be caught to the Big Smoke as well as other destinations in the south.

On top of this, Gatwick Airport is situated nearby and offers domestic and international travel!

Local shops

As mentioned earlier, Pooh Corner is one of the biggest attractions of the village and is certainly worth a visit. If you’re the sporty type, golf and cricket clubs in Hartfield and the surrounding area can be frequented.

In terms of amenities, the immediate village is home to several pubs, a convenience store, medical centre and a smattering of small shops. To access supermarkets or name brand stores, a trip to Royal Tunbridge Wells is required. And don’t forget, London is a mere car or train journey away and offers infinite choice!
