About this location
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.
