In the area there are several highly acclaimed vineyards to visit many National Trust properties, excellent cycle and walking routes, and great shopping with a good mix of independently owned and top chain stores in Tunbridge Wells. The Hop Farm which holds a variety of events during the year is a 10 minute drive. ‘The Garden’s’ a popular wedding venue just outside Yalding are less than a 5 minute drive away. We also benefit from some highly acclaimed restaurants and pubs in the area. Paddock wood train station is a 10 minute drive and London is just 50 minutes on the train.

We welcome bikers who are welcome to securely park their motor bikes in the enclosed garden, which also benefits from a gate than can be bolted.
