'Originally named for the Chart well on the property, the 800 acres of rolling farmland and woodland have been part of Chartwell since 1848 when the Colquhoun's owned the property. It wasn't until 1921 that the land was split into smaller lots at auction, with the house and 82 acres being bought in 1922 by one legendary statesman.'

'Despite being only 25 miles from London, the Eden Valley is a tranquil gem of the English countryside, its acres of farmland broken by quiet country lanes, its hills swathed in woodland, all surrounding the quietly meandering River Eden.'

Overview

'Edenbridge was established at a crossing point of the River Eden. The town trail follows the straight line left by the Romans on their London to Lewes route. The town appears first in 12th century church records, and archives show Henry III granted a charter for a weekly market in 1227. The River Eden crossing encouraged settlement and by the 13th century Edenbridge had a population of 300; by 1800 this had only risen to 850; but by 1850 it had expanded to 2,000, partly due to the arrival of one of the first railway lines in England in 1841 – the second being completed in the 1880s. Discover all this heritage and more on an enjoyable amble around the town and its historic buildings.'

Overview

'Penshurst is a small unspoilt village in beautiful countryside situated in an area known as "The Weald of Kent". It lies between two rivers and is famous for an ancestral home once owned by Henry VIII. Old timber-framed buildings and converted oast houses afford interest to visitors but traditions such as cricket, still played on one of England’s oldest pitches, and the village fair are still very much part of the community today.'
