pub walk

A circular pub walk from The Hare in Langton Green, near Tunbridge Wells in Kent. The site of the Hare has been home to a pub since 1785, the present building dating back to 1901, and it is a beautiful spot in the centre of Langton Green. The walking route is fairly strenuous but well worth the effort with lovely views, peaceful stretches of ancient tracks and a visit to Groombridge Place, a stunning moated manor house which is now home to a surprising range of animals. There are a number of climbs and descents throughout the route and, whilst most of the path surfaces are well made, they can get muddy in places. Some of the paths are quite narrow and can be a little overgrown in late summer. You will need to negotiate a number of kissing gates, some steps plus nine stiles (some with dedicated dog gates but one which dogs may need a lift over). You are likely to come across cattle grazing in some of the fields so take care with dogs. One of the fields may also be holding some of the menage of animals from the Groomfield Place estate (such as an alpaca or zedonk!). Allow 2 to 2.5 hours.

Decent walk with a good mixture of woodland and meadows. Children of 10 & 12 found it enjoyable and managed to spot some alpacas. Bit of wait in first meadow with cattle blocking exit. Excellent pub meal at the end.

Our very first walk to start out as a family of four, kids are 3 and 8 months. This was an amazing walk which included every aspect we could have hoped for woodland, fields and meadows, a pub for lunch and farm animals. A great day for all. If any gripe, personally a little bit long for the 3 year old to handle : )....
