Discover more by staying longer. Explore our numerous charming Wealden villages scattered among a rustic undulating countryside.

The pretty villages of Brenchley, Horsmonden, Goudhurst, and Matfield are just a few of the many endearing places to visit.

Why not stop and sample some Kentish hospitality in one of the numerous country pubs which serve a varied menu made from fresh locally sourced ingredients?

Top tip: try a ‘Ploughman’s’ lunch! A simple meal of bread and cheese made elegant with the addition of tasty local chutneys and salad.

Follow the scenic country car tour to visit our villages, maybe take elevenses in one, lunch in another and afternoon tea in a different spot and choose your favourite.

There is more information on each village page.  Download the brochures for ‘Visit Cranbrook and Beyond’ and ‘Hawkhurst – your guide to smuggling in Kent and Sussex’ to take with you as well as the fascinating ‘On the Wealden Church Trail’ leaflet.
