Lindfield is a picturesque and historic village with a Linden tree lined High Street on the outskirts of Haywards Heath. As well as Limes, the High Street is home to many small independent shops and boutiques.
The first known documented reference to Lindfield was in a Saxon charter dated 765AD. Those keen to learn more about the history of Lindfield can look up the Lindfield History Project Group's excellent website.
Lindfield won the annual Best Kept Village in Sussex competition so often that it was persuaded to withdraw at one point just to give everyone else a chance – so you can be sure that everything about the place is just right. There are plenty of attractive buildings preserved in the village. Old Place is a small Elizabethan gabled house and, as the name suggests, Thatched Cottage is a very attractive thatched cottage. We also have a beautiful village pond which completes the classic English village ensemble.
In its position and locality, the village stands within 1.5 miles from neighbouring Haywards Heath – itself only 45 minutes from London Victoria by train. We are an easy 17 miles from Gatwick Airport, and 16 miles from Brighton.
There are also many local attractions in the area surrounding Lindfield.
