If you're a keen cyclist, we are just off the High Weald Ride, a challenging route taking in some of Kent's best scenery from Tunbridge Wells to Canterbury. Bikes can be rented locally from the following places:

Bewl Water - ride around the reservoir (approx 3 hours)
Bedgebury Pinetum - mountain biking through the forest
Rye E-bike, Rye Harbour - ride along an old road running along the beach/nature reserve to Winchelsea
Rother Rides, Newenden - guided tours (weekends only)
Electric Bike, Biddenden - hire and tours


For keen walkers, there's no shortage of paths and routes, including the High Weald Landscape Trail and Sussex Border Path, both close to the property. We also have a whole page of recommended walks which guests can download when staying with us, including our favourite amble to Bodiam Castle.


There are a number of breweries nearby, including Cellar Head Brewery & Tap Room, Flimwell, The Old Dairy Brewery, Tenterden, Three Legs Brewery, Broad Oak and if you like gin, Anno Gin Distillery, Marden. Please see here for details of Kent's ever-growing wine industry!
