A 'walk and ride' trail between Wittersham Road and Tenterden railway stations. Start your trip with a ride on the wonderful Kent & East Sussex Railway from Tenterden and then walk back via the pretty village of Small Hythe, with its vineyard and National Trust house.

Kent & East Sussex Railway

This rural light railway line gently wends its way from Tenterden - "The Jewel of The Weald" for ten and a half miles, through the unspoilt countryside of the Rother Valley, to terminate in the shadow of the magnificent National Trust castle at Bodiam.

Vintage steam and historic diesel trains dating from Victorian times transport you back in time. Refreshments are available at Tenterden station and on many trains, including cream teas, light lunches and luxury Pullman dining for dinners.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 1 hour 56 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 517 calories will be burnt.
