Hawkhurst, the 'crossroads' of the Weald, is a well-connected and attractive village, known for its historic buildings and distinctive white colonnade of independent shops plus the Kino, our local boutique cinema.


It's the perfect base for exploring Kent's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as visiting the coast and other local attractions...not forgetting six National Trust properties (Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst, Scotney Castle, Lamb House, Batemans and Smallhythe Place) all within 10 miles!

We are ideally located for visiting Tenterden and Rye, two of the most popular destinations in Kent, both less than 20 minutes away.

From the battlements of Bodiam Castle to the stunning floral displays at Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, there's something for visitors of every age.
