Cycling, horse riding, walking, stunning gardens, local flavours and country pubs; if you aren’t delighted with Matfield then we’ll eat our hat!
The area around the village is entwined with beautiful walking trails through farmland, orchards and woodlands. See the link at the bottom for local walking trails.
Once a centre for the thatching industry as well as iron foundries, Cinderhill Woodland and Foal Hurst Wood (wheelchair friendly) are today, still tranquil nature reserves for walking.
A circular cycling route starting and ending in Royal Tunbridge Wells is 37½ km which will take you through Lamberhurst, Horsmonden and Matfield.
Sustrans cycle route 18 will also take you through the wider region with Matfield en-route described as a “picture postcard village”.
Fly fishing can be savoured at Spring Hill Trout Waters. Refreshments and “good advice” available!
