IS the whole of the property being rented out?
Guests will have exclusive use of the property during their stay including the ground floor exhibition centre. Access to the tower is restricted. Please see the next question below...
Can we go right to the top of the tower?
Unfortunately, for insurance reasons, guests are not allowed to go to the very top of the tower without being supervised. Public open days are run every Thursday from April to September. Open days are entirley separate from holiday rentals. See Public Open Days for more details.
Where can we park our car?
Follow the signs to Hadlow Tower after entering through the castle gate from the High Street. Visitor parking is clearly marked. For unloading and loading it is also possible to park in the disabled parking next to the tower just along from the visitor parking. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE COURTYARD AS THIS IS PRIVATE PARKING FOR CASTLE GROUNDS RESIDENTS ONLY
Where is good to eat locally?
See BARS & RESTAURANTS for more details. For a coffee and light snacks, Weathered & Worn is just a short walk (turn left out of the castle gates). The Carpenters Arms is a gastro pub about 5 minutes drive from the property. There is also The Hadlow Manor an equally short drive away. Tonbridge is only 10 minutes drive away and has a great variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes
How far is it from London?
The quick train service to London is from Tonbridge, which is about 10 minutes drive from Hadlow. There are several trains an hour to London and they take about 35 minutes to London Bridge or 45 minutes to London Charing Cross
How far is it from The Coast?
The Tower is about 1 hour drive from Camber Sands (for white sandy beaches), to Hastings (for the historic battle and quintissential sea side town) and Dover/Folkestone/Ashford (for onward travel to Europe)
Is the property suitable for young children?
In short - NO. There are a lot of stone steps and due the tower being Grade 1 Listed it is not possible to incorporate safety features such as child gates. There are also floor to ceiling single paned glass windows on some floors and adult supervision at all times is essential. Whilst not forbidden, we would suggest the property is inappropriate for children under 12 years old.
Are pets allowed?
We regret to say that pets are not allowed at the property
