Wingham, established as a village in Roman times, expanded during the Middle Ages due to the prominence of nearby Sandwich as a Cinque Port. Over successive centuries the village has grown, without detriment to its character and now provides a variety of amenities, including a primary school, doctor’s and dentist’s surgeries, post office, village stores, bank and two pubs (The Anchor and The Dog Inn).
Extensive wider facilities are provided by the Cathedral City of Canterbury, 8 miles, including a comprehensive choice of shops, schools, recreational, sporting and cultural opportunities including the Marlowe and Gulbenkian theatres.
Three bus services pass along Wingham high street and trains from Adisham (4.5 miles) link up at Canterbury with the Javelin High Speed train services to London (58 minutes). The barn is 5.5 miles by road from Sandwich station.
There is access onto the A2 some 5 miles to the south, which opens up the journey westwards and links up with the national motorway network.
Well worth considering if you are looking to accommodate multiple team members, looking for a logistical base, or wanting a large family base for the week.
