The Old Stables

An introduction to The Old Stables


  • 4 Star

Built around 1760 as stables to accommodate the coach horses, The Old Stables was converted to a home in 1974 with large generously proportioned rooms.

When you telephone or visit us you can be assured of a warm welcome - we really want you to enjoy your stay in our home.


Set in the heart of the Weald of Kent, the peaceful hamlet of Wissenden enjoys great views across the beautiful Kent countryside. Wissenden is a farming community with the most wonderful footpath walks across the fields and through woodland to the charming old villages of Smarden, Pluckley and Bethersden - all within 2 or 3 miles. All three villages have typically English pubs serving good food and beer. It is also an ideal area from which to explore local villages by bicycle. Although very definitely "off the beaten track" we are only 35 minutes from the Channel Tunnel (Le Shuttle) terminal at Folkestone. We are about 6 miles from Junction 9 on the M20 together with Ashford International station convenient for hourly trains to London Charing Cross and for Eurostar trains to the Continent. If you plan to stay with us you will need a car or bicycles, or of course, you could use taxis.



Charges for rooms are on a double occupancy basis and include a full English or uncooked Breakfast. Single occupancy rates are discounted.

Rates are from £55 - £70 per night per couple (€88 - €112).

Our double and twin rooms can share a bathroom and this makes an ideal arrangement for families and good friends. 


Dinner from £17.50 per person (€28)

Please let us know of any likes or dislikes in advance of booking dinner.

We are not licensed to sell alcohol and are happy for you to bring your own.

The Old Stables is a warm and comfortable home and all bedrooms have extra long or king size beds, coffee and tea making facilities and colour television if you require it. Children are warmly welcomed here and we have a large garden and plenty of private parking available.


Our excellent butcher provides us with locally reared meat, game and poultry. We grow practically all our own vegetables and excellent free range eggs are supplied by neighbours, and we make our own bread. We are therefore able to offer our guests good quality food in relaxed and informal surroundings. Dinner (for those who want it) is served in the Dining Room, as is breakfast, but if the weather is warm enough either can be eaten in the garden.
