about pluckley

Pluckley is famous for being England’s most haunted village and is also where the TV series “The Darling Buds of May” was filmed. It is a beautiful, historic, Kentish village s fringed by apple orchards and looking out over the Weald. Cyclists will find quiet lanes and walkers can explore local footpaths some of which make up the Pluckley Circular Walk. For sustenance the Dering Arms (a great pub and fish restaurant) is just at the end of the lane (2 minutes walk) and there are 2 more pubs within 5 minutes drive.

further afield

For garden enthusiasts Sissinghurst and Great Dixter are nearby whilst the lesser known but impressive Godinton House is around 5 miles away. The nearest beaches are at Camber Sands or Whitstable (35 minutes drive).  A trip to Canterbury with its cathedral is essential whilst the charming coastal village of Rye in East Sussex is well worth a visit. Nearby market town, Tenterden, known as the “Jewel of the Weald” features a historic high street, antique shops and a steam railway.
