LOCATION Bombazine Cottage is situated between the Wealden villages of Brenchley and Matfield, about 6 miles to the east of Royal Tunbridge Wells. Surrounded by orchards and farmland, the villages lie in the beautiful High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Brenchley is a picturesque village with a medieval church and a number of attractive old timbered houses, including the fine Bishop's Palace and the Workhouse.

Matfield boasts one of the largest village greens in Kent, complete with pond where children can fish. Many of the houses surrounding The Green date back to the 18th century and several have the typical Kentish construction of timber frames with white weatherboarding. The First World War poet, Siegfried Sassoon, was born in the village.

There are excellent schools within the area. The Brenchley & Matfield Parish has a pre- and junior school situated within walking distance of Bombazine Cottage. There is a wide choice of both public and state secondary schools in the area, including the sought-after grammar schools of Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone. The facilities within the villages include a GP surgery, dentist, two butchers, Post Office and general store. Bombazine Cottage is within walking distance of four country pubs, offering good dining and real ale.

The nearest main line railway station is at Paddock Wood (with an adjacent Waitrose) providing fast and frequent services to London Bridge, Charing Cross/Cannon Street and Ashford International, with its excellent services to Europe. The nearby A21 provides a convenient link to the M25 motorway network. There is a 24/7 M&S Simply Food and a Wild Bean Café at the A21 BP petrol station.
