Special interest holidays:

The Barn lies in the west corner of the county of Kent and is the last village before Sussex. The two counties being separated by the river Rother and connected by Newenden Bridge.

Surrounded by mainly grazing land the village boasts a population of around 175 and the main claim to fame is its connection to the game of cricket.

Supposedly having the oldest cricket ground, the game or a form of it, has been played on the location since the middles ages. The village green hosts Newenden CC and when matches are played (mainly weekends), qualities associated with a typical English scene can be experienced, cream teas, a local pub and the summer serenity associated with childhood memories.


The Barn is located perfectly to access many of the delights and entertainments available in the area. From a day on the beach at Camber Sands fish and chips in Hastings or places of interest such as Rudyard Kiplings house at Burwash, to the spa town of Tunbridge Wells and the quaint and ancient towns of Rye and Tenterden, there is plenty of variety for everyone, so come and join us for the perfect break.

Further Details:

Today matches played on the green are enhanced by the fact that hitting a six from the pub end must land in the next County to qualify, completely clearing the River Rother. Sky television in recent years arranged matches at the club to celebrate its longevity.

The Village and surrounding areas are very rich in history. This can be gauged by the numerous castles and National Trust properties to be found within a relatively small radius of Newenden.

Castles such as Bodiam (left), Leeds, Hever, Penshurst, and Scotney are easily accessible and National Trust properties such as Chartwell, Smallhythe Place and Batemans are accessible in short time.

For the horticulturists, The world famous gardens at Sissinghurst, Scotney Castle and Great Dixter (left and below) can be reached within 25mins, the latter within 10 mins. Coupled with the variety of gardening centres in the region this can add up to a gardeners paradise.

For the train and steam enthusiasts the every popular Kent & East Sussex railway runs close by and can be seen chugging through the Rother Valley from the Barn. The train and services can be accessed from Northiam station which is 5 minutes from the properties. To enquire and book go to www.kesr.org.uk.

The Danny Lee is moored throughout the spring and summer months at Newenden Bridge and trips can be taken to Bodiam Castle from this point of departure. The option is to come back via the train or travel back on the boat then enjoy a lunch at the White Hart. Either way, coupled with viewing the castle, this will add up to a memorable day.

The area is the hop capital of England . The oast houses and poled fields are evidence of this activity and are abundant in the area adding to the character of the place and resulting in some wonderful local brews. The White Hart pub which, like most drinking establishments these days is laid out as a restaurant, still manages to retain its pub atmosphere.
