There are numerous pretty villages with country pubs and resturants close by, and the whole of the south coast of England is within easy reach.
There are award winning vineyards; Chapel Down and Biddenden Vineyards and a host of National Trust locations. Sissinghurst Castle is a mere 10 minutes drive, Great Dixter is 20 minutes away and the Channel tunnel 30 minutes should you fancy lunch in France.
Rye and the beaches are 30 minutes drive.
We are more than happy to recommend places of interest to visit or eat.
