It is the perfect base from which to explore the glorious High Weald landscape with Sissinghurst Castle Garden only a couple of miles away. Also in easy reach are a variety of wonderful attractions including Scotney Castle, Pashley Manor, Bodiam Castle and Bedgebury Pinetum and the enchanting towns of Tenterden and Tunbridge Wells are close by.
