LOCATION The historic and ancient village of Frant has existed since before the Norman Conquest and is mentioned in the Domesday book. When the Wealden iron industry was at its height, much of the village was owned by ironmasters and became the haunt of smugglers during the 17th and 18th Centuries. The village enjoys a fine 19th Century church, Frant Coffee Shop which serves delicious sandwiches and cakes, and a Post Office/ general store which caters for most day to day needs. There is also a hair salon and an interior design shop. In addition, the village has two fine country inns - The Abergavenny Arms (since 1450) which offers fine food, and The George Inn offers a brilliant range of excellent wines and local guest ales. Both welcome customers with warming log fires during the winter months. The Brecknock Arms is also nearby, on the outskirts of the village in Bells Yew Green. Frant mainline station (1.5 miles from Priory Cottage) provides regular and efficient services into central London, with a commute time of 1 hour 2 minutes into Charing Cross.
For an even greater range of amenities, Royal Tunbridge Wells is located just 3.2 miles away and offers an eclectic range of shopping facilities, supermarkets and amenities. The Pantiles, lined with charming Georgian colonnades, features quaint antique shops, cafés, open air jazz music from its bandstand every Thursday in the winter and summer months, and a cosmopolitan mix of restaurants. Also the Royal Victoria shopping centre is home to many High Street retailers, a food court and ample parking facilities.
