The nearest station is Staplehurst (7.5 miles) - this gives regular fast services to London, Ashford International and the Kent Coast. To get to The Holt a taxi will be required (it is a small station but the MTC taxis have an office that is sometimes open - it is best to prebook). You can also come via Tunbridge Wells station (see the information on bus journeys below)

By bus ....

The local bus is the 297 (it is not very frequent but look for bus 297 at http://www.nu-venture.co.uk for times). The bus runs from Tunbridge Wells taking about 75 minutes ride to reach The Holt and then it is a further 15 minutes to reach Tenterden - about 7 times a day in each direction. There is a station at Tunbridge Wells with a fast service to London and the coast.

The Holt is just a 10 minute diversion off the High Weald Landscape Trail - a glorious way to get to the Holt!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
