Places To Visit

We are 100 yards from the entrance to Sissinghurst Castle and its World famous gardens.

We have our own parking area in front of the house and disabled access at the side of the house.

The south facing garden has well stocked borders and a large flat lawn where guests can enjoy a high tea or watch the sunset.

There are some fantastic local walks to enjoy including one to the best pub around - the Three Chimneys - or across the fields to the historic market town of Cranbrook.
