Horsmonden is a quiet village nestled in the Weald of Kent, with the name 'Weald’ derived from the Old English for forest. The High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounds one of England's finest landscapes and visitors are encouraged to explore this historic setting with romantic routes winding over its rolling hills, through pretty flower meadows and woodland. Ramble over the High Weald and be transported back in time as you explore a landscape that has barely changed since medieval times, with an eclectic mix of sandstone ridges, clay valleys and colourful heaths. The area's woodland conceals over 30 small manor houses, several National Trust properties, as well as beautiful parks and gardens. Bewl Water Country Park, the largest area of inland water in the southeast of England, offers an ideal place to try out watersports with windsurfing and sailing, and there’s also fishing, walking and cycling opportunities, with picnic areas dotted all around. Also in the area is Go Ape and beautiful walks at Bedgebury Pinetum. This pretty part of Kent has plenty of scattered villages with traditional inns and shops at their centre, so if a long country walk followed by a delicious pub dinner is on your holiday agenda, then you’ve chosen the right destination. This little village offers a fortnightly Farmers' Market and on the second Sunday in September, Horsmonden hosts the Horse Fair, a lively experience for everyone!
