The Kent region
From mysterious marshlands and breathtaking countryside to the dramatic white cliffs of Dover, there are medieval towns, historic castles, towering cathedrals and bustling seaside resorts to keep you busy on your visit to Kent.
One of the lovliest villages in the Weald of Kent, Biddenden is remarkable for its wide High Street and pavements of Bethersden Marble (a local limestone containing fossilised snailshells), for its brick and timbered houses and the lofty tower of its grey stone church, all of which have attracted artists through the ages. The village is perhaps best known for the tale of the Biddenden Maids, who were born in 1100 joined at the shoulder and hip, and their statue can be seen on the village green today.
The village has an industrial history in sheep and wool and the many fine houses which can be seen the locality are testament to the wealth this trade brought to the area. Back in the 14th century Flemish weavers were encouraged to move to this area and bring their weaving and dying skills with them.
Within 10 minutes walk are a range of local shops including a small supermarket, butchers, post office, hairdressers and tea rooms with gift shop. Biddenden has two restaurants, including the Michelin starred 'West House' and there is a local pub which serves a wide range of food at lunchtime and in the evenings. A little further out is the award-winning Biddenden Vineyards, where you can walk around the vineyards and sample the wines and ciders in their tea rooms and shop afterwards.
The tree-lined high street has historic shops and houses dating back to the 15th-century, but save your pennies for a visit to the local vineyard.
