About our home

Our spacious character home is located down a private leafy lane in a traditional English village, yet only 40 mins from central London - via Charing Cross, Waterloo and London Bridge stations.

We are surrounded by stately homes such as Penshurst Place, Hever Castle, Knowle Park, Sissinghurst Gardens, Bodiam Castle and Groombridge Place (location for the film Pride & Prejudice) but just ten minutes from the lively, historic spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells.

One of the UK's trendiest seaside towns, Brighton, is just an hour's drive away, while there are beautiful beaches, stunning sand dunes and a small fishing harbour at Camber and Rye. Plus there is a long off-road cycle track and a working steam railway less than ten minutes away.

So if you love walking, stunning countryside and historic sights, yet also enjoy good restaurants and shopping and want easy access to all the London sights, this would be a perfect base for your trip to the UK.
