Its rich past has also left a legacy of impressive castles across the Weald of Kent, such as Leeds Castle and Hever Castle. There is no shortage of historic buildings too, such as the Georgian manor Finchcocks (Goudhurst), the 16th century half timbered house at Smallhythe Place home of the Victorian actress Ellen Terry (Tenterden) and the Union Windmill built in 1814 still working today (Cranbrook).
The area has no shortage of activities for kids too, such as adventure play at Go Ape in Bedgebury Forest (near Cranbrook/Goudhurst), Rare Breeds Centre (near Ashford) and the Hop Farm Family Park (Paddock Wood).
