Smarden is a small village within the beautifully green county commonly known as The Garden of England. A Smarden holiday cottage could serve as a base for exploring more of the local area, but there are plenty of amenities within the village itself too. There is a Post Office and store where you can be many essentials. There is also a Butchers and a couple of family-friendly gastro pubs.Smarden is know for having some distintive houses built in the 15th and 16th centuries at a prosperous time in the village's history, which also characterise Kent – your Smarden holiday rental should be no exception, and it may be possible to find one with a quirky style. The Cloth Hall is a fine example of the village's distintive architecture. It is an example of a 15th century timber hall house. A stay in a Smarden holiday home will be an opportunity to get an authentic taste of the village once called home by famous English author and political writer Dorothy Crisp. There are in fact so many gems to be discovered in Kent. Another small town worth visiting is Ashford, which is very closeby and has slightly more tourist attractions.
