About this location
The Kent region
The South East England / 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.
Within easy reach are Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, Scotney Castle, Leeds Castle, Bedgebury Pinetum, local award-winning vineyards, Bewl Water, and many others. The Kent coast at sandy Camber Sands is only 30 minutes by car. There are local championship golf courses at Chart Hills and Weald of Kent nearby.
The channel tunnel rail link is 30 minutes by car at Ashford, making day-trips to France and Belgium easy. For those who favour a more active holiday, there is local horse-riding, sailing, fishing, flying at Headcorn Aerodrome, and hot air balloon rides. You can also swim, take leisurely walks in the countryside or pine forests, or borrow a bicycle from us and explore the country lanes.
The Biddenden area
One of the loveliest villages in the Weald of Kent, Biddenden is remarkable for its wide High Street and pavements of Bethersden Marble (a local limestone containing fossilised snail shells), 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, 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.
