Penshurst is a small unspoilt village in beautiful countryside situated in an area known as ‘The Weald of Kent’. It lies between two rivers and is famous for an ancestral home once owned by Henry VIII.
Old timber-framed buildings and converted oast houses afford interest to visitors but traditions such as cricket, still played on one of England’s oldest pitches, and the village fair are still very much part of the community today.
