A little bit about……… Bluebell Vineyard

Set amidst bluebell-strewn woods from which the vineyard derives its name, Bluebell Vineyard Estates is a family-run vineyard and winery with a passion for producing world class sparkling wines. Established in 2005, the vineyard has more 70 acres under-vine stretching across East and West Sussex and produces award-winning English sparkling wines.

The Estate offers visitors offer a true ‘grape to glass’ experience, with an insight into grape growing and winemaking in England. The relaxed, fun and informative tours take visitors through the art and science behind winemaking, before a tutored tasting of the award-winning wines in the Estate Tasting Room.

Bluebell Vineyard is just 5 minutes down the road from is the world famous Bluebell Railway – in fact on some days the chug chug chug of the locomotive can be heard from Vineyard! Climb on board, sit back and tuck into a traditional ploughman’s lunch while you enjoy a journey through the beautiful Sussex countryside all the way to East Grinstead and back.

The Bluebell is nearing its 60th anniversary and from its beginnings in 1960 it has grown into one of the largest heritage railways in the country and an extremely popular tourist attraction while still holding onto the traditional values of a small branch line railway.

Your ploughman’s lunch consists of a crusty roll, cheese, salad and pickles and can be collected from the Bessemer Arms restaurant at Sheffield Park Station and your return journey up the line will take 1 ¾ hours.
