Places to visit

There are many places to visit in Kent & Sussex and we hope you enjoy your time exploring some of the wonderful places our area has to offer.
Just under 2 miles away is our nearest town, Tenterden, known as The Jewel of the Weald, it's a picturesque market town noted for its wide tree lined high street and examples of different historical buildings including medieval.
The 12th century Church of St. Mildred's graces the town with it's 14th century tower, where on a clear day, it's possible to see ships on the English channel and the French coast.
A good range of eateries, pubs and shops are awaiting you too.

If you enjoy Castles we have Bodiam, a 14th century moated castle which is about 20 minutes drive away from us, or if you're feeling like a bit of fun and nostalgia you can catch the steam train from Tenterden which will drop you by Bodiam Castle.  There is good pub opposite the castle which does food, although taking a picnic and sitting in the grounds of the castle is highly recommended.

Beautiful Bodiam Castle

Great Dixter House and Gardens.

This a lovely place to visit if you enjoy gardens and historic architecture.

Smallhythe Place 

This beautiful house is very local to our campsite and was built in the late 15th century and was the home of the renowned Victorian actress Ellen Terry who lived here from 1899 until her death in the house in 1928. The house contains her theatre collection whilst the cottage grounds include her rose garden, nuttery, orchard and The working Barn Theatre.
It is next to the River Rother and before the sea receded it was right next to a thriving shipyard, where apparently Henry VIII ship The Mary Rose was built.

Leed's Castle.

One of the most visited castles in the UK is a 25 minute drive away from our campsite.
Leeds Castle has been a Norman stronghold, the private property of six of England's medieval Queens; a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon, a Jacobean country house, a Georgian mansion, an elegant early 20th century for the influential and famous; and in the 21st century it has become one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain.
