Tucked away behind the handsome Church at the top of the attractive village green in Benenden is a haven of loveliness.  In gardens that once formed part of the extensive grounds of the acclaimed plant collector "Cherry" Ingram is this utterly enchanting Potting Shed that has been carefully renovated retaining the original beams and timbers to create a charming little cottage which the owner fills with jars of fresh garden flowers. The exceptionally beautiful gardens that surround the owners' house and erstwhile potting shed feature magnificent mature topiary hedges, vegetable patches and flower filled arbours offering many nooks and crannies in which to enjoy endless tranquility. This is an ideal base from which to visit other famous gardens nearby including Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Hole Park, Great Dixter and Pashley Manor. There is only one pub (The Bull Inn) operating in the village now.The Woodcock Inn is about a mile away as the crow flies, a pleasant walk through the woods and across fields  Shop: 500 yards  Pub: 500 yards   Coast: 15 miles
