About the location


Lamberhurst 8 miles; Maidstone 8 miles; Royal Tunbridge Wells 11.5 miles.

The small rural village of Collier Street, Kent, sits close to the border with Sussex and was once set at the heart of Britain’s hop-growing region, with whole families, often from London, arriving during the harvest to help bring in the hops. You're sure to find fresh produce locally, as today the fields are home to several crops including cherries, pears, strawberries and asparagus, but this area is more known for its apple orchards. The village is also only a few miles from the The Hop Farm Family Park, previously a brewery owned by the Whitbread family, now a popular family attraction and concert venue. The Kent County Showground at Detling is only a short trip away, where there are events throughout the year from dressage shows to craft fairs, ploughing contests and vintage transport displays. This part of Kent is scattered with historic houses and magnificent castles, including Leeds Castle, just ten miles away, said to be one of the loveliest in the world. If fishing is a favourite pastime, this rural location is a perfect choice, with two large lakes and three rivers to settle beside in the hope of a bite! Collier Street may be a quiet, country village but there is plenty to see and do within easy reach, perfect whether you’re seeking a weekend getaway or a long summer holiday.
