Set beautifully on a wooded, sandstone ridge in the western Weald, Bedham is a picturesque, yet tiny hamlet. The hamlet is made up of a few scattered houses, a farmhouse and a pretty, disused school house that doubled up as a church on Sundays.
The tranquillity on offer here made the hamlet a popular escape with artists during the 20th century. Chief amongst them was Edward Elgar, who wrote his four last great works at the timber-framed Brinkwells cottage.

This is a lovely little isolated hamlet in a commanding position looking north over the Sussex weald. Added bonus of an atmospheric little ruined church in the woods below the top of the hill.
