The Kent region
Stay at the Pottery Shed and explore Kent, Sussex and 1066 country
The Garden of England - take a trip along lanes to experience the orchards, vineyards, oast houses, lavender fields and quaint villages Kent has to offer. Kent has a fascinating historical past - from Canterbury and Chaucer; Dickens and his links to Rochester and the surrounding area; maritime history from the time of the Roman Invasion through to World War II. Alternatively, experience modern times through the local theatres and galleries, Michelin starred restaurants and nightlife to suit all tastes.
Kent's reputation as The Garden of England dates back over 400 years. It is believed to date back to the time of King Henry VIII when he enjoyed a large dish of cherries from Kent. He was personally responsible for the establishment of many orchards throughout Kent. Today, the gardens of Kent are amongst the most popular attractions in Kent, and some of the most renowned gardens in England . A trip through the countryside at 'Apple Blossom time' is well worth the drive and fine Kentish fruit can be bought at farms, and by the roadside, throughout the county at harvest time.
Kent's coastline is extensive and varied - from the landscapes from the White Cliffs of Dover to the stark, mysterious landscapes of Dungeness and the Romney Marshes - with its history of invaders and smugglers. Simple pleasures can be enjoyed at the Kent Coast such as beach combing, studying rock pools, sandcastles, or fish and chips.
The iconic White Cliffs form part of the heritage coast - there is a vistor centre at this renowned landmark. Other ways to explore include countryside walks and nature trails.In stark contrast is the wet and flat landscape of Romney Marsh whose spectacular and mysterious setting evoke a quality of times gone by from invaders to smugglers.
Not far from the historic city of Canterbury and close to Whitstable is Blean Woods - a large area of ancient woodland and a haven for butterflies and birds.There are many hidden gems to discover along the country roads and hills from Canterbury to Dover or Folkestone - villages such as Barfirstone, Ickham and Chillenden to name but a few.
There are many distinctive attractions in Kent - romantic castles, historic houses full of treasures, austere castles built to form coastal defences,secret gardens, tours by lamplight of ancient caves all reflect the diverse character of the county of Kent.
Day Trip to France
Kent's proximity to France and its train links/ports makes a day trip to the beautiful northern french regions of Nord-Pas de Calais and Picardy. Eurotunnel from Folkestone to Calais takes 35 minutes - or alternatively the high speed Eurostar runs from Ashford International through to Paris or Lille. P&O Ferries and SeaFrance both operate from Dover.Sample the gastronomic delights, stock up on fine wine and cheese, explore the architecture in the historic towns such as Lille or relax on the beautiful beaches of Picardy.
The rural village of Sandhurst is conveniently located just a few miles from Cranbrook, Tenterden and approximately 30 minutes from Royal Tunbridge Wells - all historic towns with cafes, restaurants and a wide range of shops.
This beautiful town with its weatherboarded houses is surrounded by countryside and orchards. The shops are varied and interesting. There is a good choice of hotels, pubs and restaurants, a museum and a fine example of a working windmill - Union Mill. Nearby are the internationally renowned Sissinghurst Gardens. Bodiam Castle is also nearby as is Bedgebury Pinetum - England's national collection of Conifers. There is a restored steam train that runs on the Tenterden to Bodiam Line. Smallhythe Place is the former home of Edwardian actress Ellen Terry. Cranbrook is a perfect location to serve as a base for exploring the area. You can take a trip on the beautifully restored steam trains on the Tenterden to Bodiam line to visit Bodiam Castle. There is a vineyard at Biddenden and also at Tenterden.Thespians will love Smallhythe Place, the former home of Edwardian actress Ellen Terry and musicians will enjoy a visit to Finchcocks Museum of Music at Goudhurst.
Tenterden is often referred to as The Jewel of the Weald. It is a picturesque 'Cinque Port'. The high street is extremely attractive and comprises of historic houses, shops, restaurants and pubs and a partially tree-lined grass verge high street. The tower of St Mildred's Church guards the town - a signal beacon once warned the approach of the Spanish Armada and Horatia - the daughter of Lord Nelson, was the vicar's wife. William Caxton, the printer of the first English book was born here.
Royal Tunbridge Wells
This historic town sits in beautiful Kent Countryside - famous as a spa town in Georgian times. Visitors can enjoy a day out, enjoy the outdoor activities on offer - exploring the castles, historic houses and gardens. Alternatively the town has a wide range of shops - from big high street names to smaller, unusual shops in the Old High Street and in the Pantiles. The choice of restaurants and cafes is endless. There is a train station in the town centre.

"Worst holiday stay ever"
We booked the pottery shed to break up the journey with young children between london and our home in belgium for a family visit. We found the owner and contact person to be extremely inflexible, unpl… More
In response to this review we would first of all express our sadness that these guests perceived their stay as ‘the worst ever’. And secondly our extreme shock to receive this review which is so different from all the responses from our previous guests. We have had over 80 visitors (many not booking through trip advisor) and this is the first negative review or (comment in visitors book) that we have received. And gosh it is very negative. Even the welcome cake didn’t get a mention! Throughout the booking process we were very accommodating to these guests. We had indeed gone to great lengths to accommodate the guests’ booking prior to arrival as they changed the dates on several occasions. They had asked beforehand if they could reduce the number of nights of their stay, but due to the short notice of this we were unable to offer a refund. So the decision to stay only two nights was not, as suggested in the review, made as a result of their bad experience. We also made every effort to reorganize the day to be there when they arrived. Again we fully appreciated the very understandable reason for their lateness. Consequently we were able to be there when they arrived. We always inform our prospective guests that we have a large pond that it is not fenced and we state in our advert that The Pottery Shed is not suitable for young children. If they go ahead and book, then I do just remind them to take care. We are sorry that they took our concern for their children’s safety as over anxious but do not regret suggesting they keep an eye on their young children. I believe it to have been a responsible precaution. We quite understand that the children were scared by the family dogs when they arrived, but we did put the dogs in at the time and reassured them of their friendliness. Quite often guests express the wish to take the dogs home with them when they leave. We do pride ourselves on the cleanliness of The Pottery Shed, the facilities, and the comfort of the beds, and were sorry to note from the review that even in this respect The Pottery Shed did not ‘come up to scratch’ as far as these guests were concerned. We do hope that people who may be interested in booking The Pottery Shed will take the time to read other reviews before dismissing it. Many of our guests return two or three times. We always try to make people feel comfortable and welcome and we are genuinely devastated that these guests found their stay to be so awful.
