A short drive will take you to a variety of beautiful visitor attractions, including beautiful Scotney Castle, a National Trust 14th century moated castle, Penshurst Place or Hever Castle. Bedgebury Forest and National Park is only 11 miles away, which is a stunning area of natural beauty miles of walks and cycling paths, including 'Go Ape,' a hugely fun activity where you can swing through the trees. Nearby Bewl water is the largest area of inland water in the South-East. If you are a water sports enthusiast, this is the place to visit with lots of activities including sailing, canoeing and wind-surfing. There is even a chance to learn or improve your shooting, clay-pigeon shooting is run by Meadowhead Sporting at Eridge Park - www.clayshoots.co.uk, look at the Things To Do on our website.

A visit to Royal Tunbridge Wells is a must. It's a very attractive town with great shopping facilities. It was established as a spa town in Georgian times and was very popular under Richard (Beau) Nash when the Pantiles and its chalybeate spring attracted visitors who wanted to try the waters. Nowadays, it is a pleasant place to wander, admire the architecture and visit its antique shops and cafes. Brighton and Lewes and Rye are approximately an hour's drive away, and well worth a visit. Trains to London leave from Tunbridge Wells every hour.

Birch Pavilion is like going home to a house you wish was yours! Despite its size, its high ceilings, its luxury feel and its open plan space, its a very sociable and cosy house - I like the fact that the owner meets you at the door and makes sure that you understand how everything works and that you feel at home as soon as you arrive. It's the "what's mine is yours" approach with very few rules and regulations that is refreshingly different from other 'big house rentals' and which makes this a very relaxing place to chill out (or in my case party!) Highly recommended!
Really enjoyed our stay at Birch Pavilion. Was a much more tasteful property than it looked in the photos.
We spent a fantastic 3 nights at Birch Pavilion, we were in a group of 14 to celebrate my 50 birthday and the house more than accommodated all of us .We woke to snow on the first morning and the sight of deer in the field , all very magical. The house is wonderful and warm and homely and more than exceeded all our expectations, quite an achievement when our ages ranged from 9 to 78. Many thanks to John for allowing us to share his home and we hope to return again one day soon .
Janet Edge - March 2013
We (12 of us) spent a lovely & relaxing 4 nights at Birch Pavilion & had a wonderful time. The house & facilities are excellent - all very homely & welcoming - nobody wanted to leave the place especially once the log fire was lit. The kids loved the table football & the dog enjoyed eyeing up the deer on the other side of the fence! Thank you John for letting us stay.
Shona - February 2013
We had a wonderful weekend at Birch Pavilion. It was the perfect place for our writing retreat. There were so many communal living spaces that everyone was able to find somewhere comfortable to work during the day - and with a fantastic view. The walks from the house were also stunning. Birch Pavilion had everything we could have needed and more, and it was warm all weekend despite the snow outside. We are already planning our return visit. Many thanks for a wonderful weekend.
Writing Retreat - Jan 2013
Fantastic house in a beautiful setting with deer running around in the fields outside the windows. Everything we needed was at the house and although a large house it is very comfortable and homely. All rooms are beautiful and the whole group felt very much at home and didn't want to leave. Fab walks in the 3000 acre grounds that would suit all abilities. Great time with friends celebrating the New Year in front of a roaring fire.
Would definitely go back
December 2012 - New Year period
What a fantastic week we all had at Birch Pavilion. The house is beautiful and we all felt very at home there and it had everything we could possibly need or want. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the house is lovely and warm - just want we needed after taking a long walk around the beautiful grounds looking at the deers. My young son had lots of fun playing with the toys and as a group we enjoyed playing some of the board games available. New Years Eve was memorable with a lovely meal for 15 all sitting round the table, party games and then celebrating at midnight. All in all we had a fab time and didn't want to leave, so intend to try and come back for a weekend in the Summer.
Delasalle - New Year 2012
This is a thank you from the Dutch party of ten that spent a lovely week in your Birch Pavilion. We felt it was our home away from home. The little ones loved the toys and games available and us grown ups enjoyed the quiet and relaxing atmosphere, and the beautiful surroundings. We had a great time so, on behalf of all of us 'heel hartelijk dank!'
Ellen (the cheeky one) and Antonia and family October 2012
All 13 of us were extremely impressed by your cottage. Your hospitality comes through in your already impressive home.
For those of us that got to know you better (with our car catastrophe etc!), you were extremely helpful and went above and beyond. All I can say is we are trying to get the first Xmas booking in - I think that says it all! Many thanks again.
Yahini and the hens! September 2012
Thank you John! We had a fantastic week in your lovely home. Thank you for making everything so comfortable, a definite home away from home! The Welcome basket was full of very tasty goodies and was really appreciated by everyone.
There is so much to do in the area and we had a great time visiting Groombridge Place, Go Ape (which was freaky but fun) and Hever Castle. You have been incredibly helpful and informative - definitely would like to come and stay here again! Thanks.
Caroline, Alistair, James and Max
Had a great weekend in your FAB house, so homely, so comfortable and relaxing.
Granny Marie - August 2012
Thank you for letting us stay in your fabulous house, and all the great recommendations for things to do. LOVED the gift basket from the Farm Shop on arrival. The house feels like a real home - we'll be back!!
The Bolgers - August 2012
We had a great time in your lovely house, thanks for the welcome pack, lovely local produce. Many thanks again.
James and Co - August 2012
We had a delightful weekend in your beautiful home. Thank you for your kind hospitality, all the small touches have made the weekend very special. Such a special weekend. The house itself is beautiful and it is obvious it is a real home will all the comforts yet with added luxuries to make it such a treat. The surrounding land is stunning - try and find the rock behind the pines - a lovely place to sit where you can see for miles. We went to 'Go Ape' in Bedgebury Park - terrifying but a lot of fun! Only 15-20 mins drive away.
John went out of his way to accommodate us and paid attention to small details. He kindly went to the Eridge Farm Shop on Saturday morning to fetch us our BBQ meat - the Chinese ribs, sausages and burgers were so tasty and it's great to think that all the produce is locally grown and bred.
A big thank you for the gift basket and bouquet of flowers on arrival - all in all a fabulous weekend. We will definitely be spreading the word!
The Girls! - June 2012
Perfect week-end away in Birch Pavilion. This a truly spectacular property - even better in real life than on pictures. It is extremely well equipped. We found everything we needed from all sorts of kitchen equipment (all of excellent quality), games and DVDs, books, recipe books, etc. We did not need to bring anything with us. John met us personally, and showed us around the house. The cottage is very warm! The fire was on, the flower arrangements and a complementary basket of delicious local food was the icing on the cake! There was not a single thing that we wished was better. Would highly recommend it and definitely stay there again! Thank you John!
What a beautiful weekend at Birch Pavilion! We were a group who were looking for a quiet weekend away in the countryside, and this luxurious house met all our needs. John, the owner, was easy to contact, and helped us to organise every small detail.
On arrival there was a complimentary gift hamper with a selection of local chocolates and drinks etc from the estate, along with a beautiful bunch of flowers, also grown locally. The house itself has large private grounds and is completely secluded. The bedrooms were very tastefully decorated and comfortable, and there were too many bathrooms to count, which meant we were never waiting to use one!
John kindly allowed us to walk freely through the estate, which has breathtaking views over the countryside and animals. We also went to Bedgebury Forest which is only 20 minutes away where they have a Go Ape centre and mountain biking etc - very convenient!
The kitchen is fully equipped and we made use of the good weather to have a BBQ with meat that was delivered to the house at the weekend from the local farm shop - the best burgers and marinated ribs we have tasted in a long time. In the evening we couldn't resist lighting a fire in the large open fireplace, which had been set up ready for us to light.
All in all, we would definately visit again and recommend this to anyone who would like to visit a luxurious setting with all your home comforts and more.
Thank you to John and Lucy for a wonderful weekend!
