    Wine and Cheese tasting vineyard tour
    Has the almost amazing day, tour of the vineyard with wine tasting and cheese pairing. EvOur tour guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I have done tours to other vineyards and this was one of the best. The setting is beautiful and you are surrounded by rolling countryside, It’s a relatively small vineyard but has lots to offer. Great day out. I would highly recommend it. As a tip, I think they might benefit from a small cafe serving basic food such as sandwiches and snacks as I would love to have eaten there in such lovely surrounding.

    Idyllic setting and delicious wine
    Had such a lovely morning here on our way home from Brighton. Did a wine tasting sat in the glorious grounds with some informative help from the lovely person in charge that day. Went for a beautiful walk with our kids in their woods and came away with 3 sensational bottles of wine. Drinking the Ashdown Blend today reminded me to review our lovely time there!

    Great real experience.
    A relaxed, friendly, knowleadgable tour guide made this a great experience. And the wine is full of character (and across a range of taste experiences). All of it is nice, most wine lovers should find something to enjoy in most (if not all) of the wines being tasted.

    An excellent birthday treat!
    A really excellent afternoon yesterday from start to finish! We were a little late as the road was blocked & we eventually found the other entrance. Margaret is a lovely lady who took us on the tour, explaining everything in a really interesting way! We learnt quite a lot! The wine tasting part was great, not rushed at all & Margaret who had probably done it so many times! presented the wines & cheeses in an enthusiastic manner! We bought 3 bottles of sparkling & currently enjoying a bottle for my birthday today! We would definitely recommend this tour & wine tasting with lovely cheeses!

    A wonderful experience - would recommend to all.
    My partner and I took a tour & tasting at Bluebell Vineyard and it was brilliant from beginning to end. Keith was the perfect tour guide, talking us through the fascinating process behind how they make their still and sparkling wines, and answering all our questions along thew way. The tasting was superb too, with 5 different wines to try and an optional accompanying cheese course. The place had a great buzz about it, and the views were phenomenal. On top of all this, the price was right too. Will definitely be returning with some friends later in the summer :)

    An enjoyable afternoon experience
    A friendly, small vineyard with knowledgeable staff. The cheese selection was of high quality and carefully paired with the wines we tasted. The tour was simple, clear and a good explanation of the history, terroir and methods of this particular vineyard. We enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon and made small purchases to help their profits! It will be interesting to see how they develop.

    Interesting and Great Value Tour
    We had an adult family visit and did a 2 hour cheese and wine tour. It was an interesting and informative tour. The wine tastings were very generous and the staff very friendly and helpful. Very enjoyable trip. Highly recommend.

    Friendly, interesting and great value.
    We had a really lovely visit. Howard was an excellent guide and everyone was very friendly including the dogs! We were with a friend in a wheelchair and she had no problems with access. Very good value for money as the wine flowed! Thank you

    Very nice tour of a smallish vineyard
    Great experience, we were lucky and dodged the showers - were indoors when the heavens opened! Very knowledgeable people explained everything about the wine making process. Only down side for me, I was driving so couldn't sample all the wines offered, although my brother made up for that

    Perfect afternoon amongst the vines.
    Superb summer afternoon at Bluebell Vineyard. Excellent wine tasting at a very reasonable price, perfect setting and lots of places to taste the wine across the estate. Had the pleasure of meeting Kevin who manages the estate and even got the opportunity to taste some exclusive wines which have not even been bottled yet. Highly recommend a visit and they offer cheese pairings too!

Had a fabulous afternoon at the wine and cheese tasting tour. The tour guide knew his stuff making the tour informative and fun. The wine did not disappoint which reflected the care taken at every step of the wine making process. The perfectly paired cheese was delicious too. Great scenery, lovely people and delicious wine, what more would you want?

A beautiful vineyard, with lovely walks around the vines and also a woodland option. It was not busy, and we had time to walk and relax by the pond before going to get a drink.

We then went to the bar, you can just have drinks, you don't have to book tastings.

Note, when we arrived we were the only car in the car park and worried it may have been closed. Just walk down the slope and you'll find the bar/tasting area and walks.

This was the best tour and tasting we’ve ever done in Sussex. We booked this as a surprise for our daughters 21st birthday, even the rain did not dampen the spirits of the tour. Our tour guide Keith was knowledgeable, friendly and overall a great guy who made the whole group feel at ease. Cannot recommended the bluebell vineyard tour enough. Stunning views great wine and people. Oh and don’t forget Bertie !! 10/10
