Little Nut Cottage is luxuriously furnished from the smart TV to the wood burning stove in the living area. Each window in the cottage frames stunning scenery of the Wealden countryside which makes your stay that much cosier when the wood burning stove is lit. The bedroom is spacious and airy with large amounts of light entering the detailed windows. There are countless local restaurants and pubs to visit whilst you are there including the infamous Milk House which is known for its fantastic, freshly made pizza. Other local pubs include The Bull in Benenden, which has some of the best burgers in the area, and also The White Horse Inn and The George hotel which are located in Cranbrook. If you are looking for local entertainment the Cranbrook Town Band, founded in the 1920’s, regularly performs in the towns Queen’s hall. As well as the local brass band there are often many theatrical productions showcased there as well as many tribute bands (any Madness fans out there?) If none of that takes your fancy why not take a look at Cranbrook museum and discover how Cranbrook has changed over the centuries. Last but not least one of the biggest attractions to Cranbrook is the windmill itself. It dates back to the 1800’s and is the last, out of 4, remaining windmills in the town. It is now in the hands of Kent County Council who refurbished and restored it to its original working state.
