The South East England region
South East England is one of the nine official regions of England, designated in 1994 and adopted for statistics in 1999. Its boundaries include Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex. In common usage, however, the area referred to as the 'south east' can vary considerably. The headquarters for the region's governmental bodies are in Guildford. The largest city in the region (by population) is Brighton and Hove.
Tenterden is known as "The Jewel Of The Weald", and with good reason. It's wide, light, bright and lined with broad bands of grass and trees separating pedestrians from the roadway, while the shops, restaurants and pubs are housed in historic buildings, many with their original facades and Wealden weatherboarding. Tenterden has above average shopping with many independents selling original merchandise and fashion.
Tenterden was formerly at the centre of the wool trade and later the broadcloth manufacturing industry. Today, it has something for everyone, from golf courses, a leisure centre and trout-fishing lakes to vineyards (Chapel Down Winery being the biggest producer of wines in England), a local history museum and an old-fashioned steam-train rail service that wends its way from Tenterden through acres of beautiful countryside to Bodiam.

"Comfortable cottage in very nice surroundings"
Potkiln cottage is a very nice and comfortable house, with good facilities: good kitchenequipment, shower, wifi and very good beds. There's lots of space around the house which enabled our teenagers to play ball games etc., but with the playground would also be nice for smaller children. Nearby are NT-houses, gardens, castles (Leeds-, Bodiam-, Dover and Hever-Castle) and very nice villages such as Tenterden, Rye and Cranbrook worth while visiting. We enjoyed walking in the country-side over publec footpaths.
Should the wheather be warm, coast and beach are not far off. Travelling to London is easy from Ashford, or from Tonbridge of Sevenoaks.
