Woodchurch is a beautiful village situated in the heart of the Kent countryside, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to go out and do.
Out and about around Woodchurch and the surrounding areas, you can visit the Rare Breeds Centre, just a mile out of the village. They offer something for everyone, from an exotic butterfly tunnel to their woodland walks and even a Falconry experience. There’s also a Rare Breed Plants and Produce shop, where flowers and food grown on the farm can be bought.
Even closer to the park, Woodchurch is home to a Village Life Museum, where you can learn all about what life was like living in surrounding areas throughout the ages. From Stone Age artefacts to modern day items, if you want to learn a little more about the village then this is the perfect museum for you!
Also in the village are Woodchurch’s two pubs, the Bonny Cravat and the Six Bells. Spend an afternoon in the Bonny Cravat, a traditional Shepherd Neame pub full of character and history. They have a beautiful and spacious garden to while away long, warm summer evenings, as well as a delicious Sunday carvery and top-class cask ales. The Six Bells is advertised as the best kept secret set in the heart of the village and is said to be over 100 years old. With 2 pub gardens and a front wisteria, it is the perfect, cosy corner for you to unwind after a busy day.
For other local amenities, you are spoilt for choice and are in walking distance of a butchers, a selection of local shops, a doctor’s surgery, post office and a lovely village green. Not only that, but there is a bus service that runs throughout the village, as well as stopping right outside of the front of the park. The bus will also take you to Ashford, where you will find the popular designer outlet centre, as well as the town’s International train station.
