On the easterly edge of the Surrey Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies the historic village of beautiful Bletchingley.
Bletchingley has a fascinating history, traced back as far as the Saxon times. There are many fine examples of buildings in the village dated between 1100 and 1600 and it was once home to Anne- of Cleves, the fourth wife of Henry VIII.
If you have time to make a day of your visit to us, there are lots of interesting things to see in the village as well as some lovely walks in the surrounding areas and of course no visit to the village would be complete without a pit stop to our famous cake shop, Lamingtons!
Tucked away down one of the country lanes is our special woodland venue.
We have an interesting mix of wonderful oak, ash, rowan, hornbeam, sweet chestnut, silver birch, larch, holly and laurel.
We keep our location under wraps until you book with us to maintain security.
Our woodland is accessible by walking from the village if you have time and parking there is free. A direct walk from the village will take around 20 minutes. If you prefer a leisurely stroll via the scenic route we have worked out this walk takes about 40 minutes up to an hour depending on your pace or if you keep stopping to admire the wonderful views!
If you are driving, there is designated free parking opposite our venue, details of which will be included in the information sent to you 72 hours before your event starts. The drive from the village takes 2 minutes so you can factor this in to any plans.
May we please request that you consider our lovely neighbours and keep noise to a minimum until you arrive on site!
We await news of a new proposed venue in the historic market town of Wadhurst, six miles south of Tunbridge Wells.
A short walk from the venue is 100 acres of magical ancient forest owned by Forestry England; Snape Wood and Birchett's Wood.
There is wonderful mix of pines, chestnut, birch, oak and other native species crossed with a network of sandy paths edged with heather.
You can really feel the power of these trees huge impressive as you walk amongst their many years.
