Sissinghurst is a pretty little village next to Cranbrook. It was originally called Milkhouse Street but changed its name in the 1850s. It’s made famous by Sissinghurst Castle & Gardens – an internationally recognised and delightful garden designed by Vita sackville-West and Harold Nicholson in the 1930s. It’s a must see if you are visiting the area.
From time-to-time events are held on the village green, and the Sissinghurst estate grounds are a great place to go for a walk (open all year).
Although Sissinghurst is just a tiny village, it's proximity to Cranbrook, Tunbridge Wells, Benenden, Hawkhurst and other Weald of Kent villages of interest make it a great base for exploring the area.
