The Llama Park is set in 33 acres of beautiful land The Park is adjacent to the Ashdown Forest which is in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. The Park is home to an ever-growing variety of animals which today includes llamas, alpacas, reindeer, horses, donkeys, Jacob sheep, Kune Kune pigs, Peafowl and poultry, with more animals on the way.
The Park’s 33 acres are yours to explore and you can do this on your own or take a guided walk in the grounds with a llama by taking one of our famous Llama walks. For the children, there is a great playground right next to the main buildings so parents can relax and enjoy a meal and a drink whilst keeping an eye on their little ones at play.
The Hundred Acre Wood of the Winnie-the-Pooh stories is in actuality Five Hundred Acre Wood in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, England, where the Winnie-the-Pooh stories were set. A.A. Milne’s country home at Cotchford Farm, Hartfield was situated just north of Ashdown Forest, and Five Hundred Acre Wood is a dense beech wood that Christopher Robin Milne would explore on his way from Cotchford Farm onto the Forest.
Five Hundred Acre Wood is long-established, having been originally sold off from the Forest in 1678. The wood remains privately owned, being part of Buckhurst Park estate, and is not therefore generally accessible to the public, though two footpaths which are public rights of way to do, one of which is part of a long-distance footpath, theWealdway, cross through the wood and may be used by members of the public. Milne was inspired by the beautiful landscape of Ashdown Forest to use it as the setting for his Winnie-the-Pooh stories, and many features from the stories can be identified with specific locations in the forest.
