    • “This was my 60th birthday gathering so age ranges from 20 to 85 no children. The owner was friendly and welcoming and happy to talk about its history. The house was large enough to give us all space and enough entertainment to keep a range of ages occupied.bedrooms were clean and spacious with enough linen. in the lounge it was lovely to sit around the fire although furniture was well worn. There was an audio system for games room and lounge. The kitchen was well supplied with cutlery and crockery we used local outside caterers "Ronnie" and they were happy with facilities and produced excellent meal. Outside plenty of space even though cold managed to play croquet and breakfast outside. Lovely walks and short walk to local pub which was very friendly. Lots of places of interest close by”

About the location


Hever 3 miles; Edenbridge 5 miles; Lingfield 10 miles; Tunbridge Wells 10 miles.

The Tudor village of Chiddingstone can be traced back to the 12th century. Situated on the borders of Sussex and Kent, it offers visitors the perfect place to stay when exploring the many historic houses and castles in this part of the country. You can visit one of the five pubs in the local area, with each pub offering different activities from folk nights to walking tours around the village. If historic houses are your interest, then you are truly spoilt for choice. Hever Castle, the ancestral home of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife, is close by so step back in time and wander the rooms and gardens where this famous Tudor King first met the lady that would change the history of England forever. The village of Hever was built to house the many followers the King took with him when visiting his noblemen. If you fancy a round of golf, there are four golf courses in this vicinity, including The King and Queen Championship Course which is host to the Kent PGA and Kent Open. Lingfield Racecourse is just a short drive away, so have a flutter and either celebrate in style or drown your sorrows, but whatever you do you will be planning your return to this beautiful part of Kent.
