WAREHORNE

The small hamlet of Warehorne has a small village green surrounded by pretty cottages. But perhaps the main draw today is the gastro pub, The Woolpack, part of a trio, this fine pub with smart rooms offers an array of freshly cooked food from a menu that changes daily.

Across the road stands the imposing Grade I listed church of St Matthew, with an almost modern tower, set in a rolling field surrounded by a flock of sheep. This idyllic scene could have been taken from a Thomas Hardy novel. In fact, the church and the pub are connected by a smugglers tunnel dating back to the 14th century.

The second part of the village is by the crossroads where once stood the school house. The nearest shops and facilities, a fantastic Doctor’s surgery, dentist and village store are at Hamstreet where there is also a railway station on the main line to Ashford International.
