Step into the pages of a storybook in the charming village of Mayfield. With its winding lanes, quaint shops, and historical treasures, this East Sussex gem feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

You’ll love the picturesque High Street, its pavements raised like a stage set. Admire the half-timbered houses, peek into antique shops, and maybe treat yourself to a delicious cream tea in a cozy café.

History buffs, you’re in for a treat! Seek out the remains of Mayfield Palace, once a grand residence of Archbishops of Canterbury. Imagine the feasts and intrigues that unfolded within its walls. Speaking of archbishops, legend has it St. Dunstan himself, a skilled blacksmith, had a rather fiery encounter with the devil in Mayfield.

Venture into the stunning 14th-century St. Dunstan’s Church, with its beautiful stained glass windows and peaceful atmosphere. Explore the surrounding churchyard and admire the ancient yew trees.

Mayfield isn’t just about the past. Enjoy the friendly village atmosphere, browse local crafts and produce at the market, or catch a live music performance at one of the welcoming pubs.
