There is direct access to the forest from a cycle trail within 600 metres of the cottage.  It's also perfectly placed for visiting the coast, many National Trust properties and gardens including Bodiam and Sissinghurst and the nearby towns of Royal Tunbridge Wells and historic Rye and Battle.  From local vineyards and farm shops to golf courses and fishing lakes, this property offers a great holiday base to explore both the Kent countryside and the Sussex coastline.
