Treat yourself

If you’re looking for a luxury experience or something a little bit different, then one of these will get your taste buds going. Take a trip to Tinwood Estate and enjoy a tranquil stay in a vineyard lodge, complete with a tour and tasting experience. Fancy something a bit more hands-on? Try your hand at cheese-making at the High Weald Dairy in Horsted Keynes.

For the foodies out there, keep your eyes open for Horsham’s food and drink festival, an annual event celebrating the county’s artisan food producers.
