Holiday Cottage in Tunbridge Wells, Kent
from £266 pwSleeps 2 + 2
It's so exciting to be on The Pantiles. The evenings are alive with the local restaurants and bars, including the new 'Sankeys Champagne and Seafood Bar' which is right on your doorstep. Daytime brings the more discerning shopper in search of the speciality shops on offer in this historic colonnaded parade and, if you are lucky (or organised) you could be here to witness one of the many festivals or farmers' markets held throughout the year. On lazy weekends the tea rooms and restaurants spill out onto the pavements and it's difficult to pass the selection of cream teas, pastries and wonderful snacks without being tempted! The birthplace of Royal Tunbridge Wells was originally based around the Chalybeate (pronounced Ka-lee-bee-at) Spring. Its name means 'iron rich' and, at certain times of the year, one is able to sample some of this rich red water, as visitors have been doing for centuries. Smartly decorated and with the bedroom and sitting room both overlooking The Pantiles, this apartment will appeal to couples sharing or perhaps those looking for a romantic city break.
The apartment is newly refurbished, has been decorated in calm colours and pale hues and has a very relaxing atmosphere. The cosy sitting room of this self-catering apartment has a sofa bed and feature fireplace, as well as a high table with bar stools. Although you probably will be eating out with so many choices on your doorstep, there is a fantastic kitchen at your disposal.
The Lower Pantiles apartment is ideal for a cosy evening after a busy day exploring the countryside or enjoying the entertainment in Tunbridge Wells. The bedroom has a double bed with memory foam mattress and dark accessories which give the room a calm, executive feel.
All in all, this apartment has all the benefits of exploring the historic spa town on foot and if you have time, there is much to do in the surrounding countryside.

The Lower Pantiles Apartment is in the centre of the famous Pantiles at the Southern end of Royal Tunbridge Wells, just a 10 minute walk from the railway station.
You will find lots to do in this lovely Georgian spa town, with wonderful restaurants, cafes, small galleries and of course the picturesque Pantiles itself. The shopping is extensive as the town is full of boutiques and individual shops. For the evenings, there are two busy theatres in the town centre and a selection of night clubs and bars. 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.
Take a trip out to the surrounding villages where you can find lots of good walks and great pubs for lunch. Groombridge Place is a short drive away with its wonderful gardens and raised wooden adventure walk through the woods. The giant swings in the Enchanted Woods are a must for any child or adult!
There is a variety of wonderful visitor attractions including Scotney Castle, a National Trust 14th century moated castle, Bodiam Castle, Lewes Castle, Penshurst Place and Hever Castle. Bedgebury Forest and National Park is only 30 minutes' drive 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.
Again 30 minutes away is Bewl Water - 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. Bowles Outdoor Centre is situated just 10 minutes away where you can learn to rock climb, build rafts and even ski on the 2 dry ski slopes.
Also only 12 miles away is Ashdown Forest. Originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times, Ashdown Forest is now one of the largest free public access spaces in the South East. It is a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside and is known the world over as the 'home' of Winnie-the-Pooh.
