High Weald

L 058174This delightful, 4-star, silver award B&B is located in a weatherboarded house at No1, Great Maytham Cottages; in the peaceful hamlet of Rolvenden Layne, close to the Kentish market towns of Tenterden and Cranbrook. The house was designed by the famous early 20th century architect Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, who was renowned for adapted traditional regional building styles to reflect the requirements of modern living. Every room in the house is beautifully decorated.

Local food is a feature of a B&B stay. The award-winning breakfast is locally sourced and organic wherever possible, and includes eggs from the owners’ chickens. Just 200m away, the Ewe and Lamb pub serves wonderful food also locally sourced, and there are two further pubs in nearby Rolvenden.

There are world-famous gardens and plant collections within 10 miles: in particular Vita Sackville-West’s Sissinghurst and Bedgebury Pinetum – the Forestry Commission’s internationally-important conifer collection. Even nearer is Hole Park, a delightful country house estate well known for its stunning spring bluebell walks.

The surrounding High Weald countryside is well worth exploring by foot or bike, and the B&B has Walkers and Cyclists Welcome certificates.
