The Hiker's Rest is situated at Saddlescombe Farm, and has quickly become a popular place to stop over for refreshment and rest. Whether visitors to the farm, or passing walkers and cyclists, the Hiker's Rest serves up to all a variety of traditional, organic food and refreshment.
Local produce is used by the Hiker's Rest, a lot of it coming from the farm; and a proportion of all proceeds from the tea shop goes to our host, the National Trust.
Saddlescombe farm is of considerable historic interest and open days are organised every little while, when visitors are taken on a guided tour of the farm. Please contact the tea shop for more details if you are interested.(firstname.lastname@example.org).
From October some building work is planned for the Information Centre next to the Manor House on the farm. Also a permanent toilet and showers will be installed in the Hostel for use by the camp site (hopefully).
A new addition to the Hikers Rest is this wonderful little vegetable cart. We are selling local produce, fresh flowers and homemade Jams and chutney.
You can have a loverly cup of tea, a slice of cake, and take some of the countryside home with you.
