The Greensand Way

The Greensand way follows the Sandstone ridge across Surrey and Kent, and provides a long distance walking route of about 108 miles across some of the most beautiful countryside in the South East.

The East Kent section begins at Yalding and the route quickly ascends the ridge before coming along to the villages of Linton, Sutton Valence, Ulcombe and Egerton through orchards and hop fields and with many lovely views over the weald with rolling landscape of farm and woodland.

The scenic route is unsurpassed with many areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and also passes through two Natural Nature Reserves, Hothfield Common rare in Kent for being part peatland and part heathland and the ancient woodland at Ham Street.

You can pick up the Greensand way from the footpaths that run right through Britcher Farm, and carry them along through Elvey Farm and through to the famous village of Pluckley (the most haunted village in Britain) that also stared on the Darling Buds of May television series.

There are some lovely pub gardens to stop at on your way or why not book an afternoon tea at Britcher Farm B&B for some well earned R&R.

The varied walk with numerous stately country homes, ancient churches, castles and beautiful landscapes provides year-round appeal for everyone. The walks are great for dogs and cyclists too but walkers are reminded that they should follow the country code. We have lots of maps out guests are welcome to borrow.
