Perhaps one of the most enchanting walks you can take in Kent are those in and around Hartfield. Both the High Weald Landscape Trail and the Forest Way pass through the town, as well as many local walks, making it a popular stop for ramblers.

Not only is this yet another area of outstanding natural beauty for you to admire, as many walks in Kent are, but it’s also close to the famous Ashdown Forest. This forest became the inspiration for Winnie the Pooh, and the real locations here are immortalised in the stories.

The forest stretches from Kent to Sussex and East Sussex and offers a variety of walks. Perhaps the most popular is the “Pooh’s Walk” which will take you and your own cuddly companion through all the locations where Pooh and his friends had their adventures. You could even have a game of Pooh sticks on the very bridge the world-famous bear did!
