Days Out

Visit one of these local landmarks and you'll have the perfect reason to stop by The Carpenters Arms for lunch or dinner. Soak up some Tudor history at nearby Hever Castle, walk around Winston Churchill's family home at Chartwell, or visit the Tap Room and Shop at Westerham Brewery to find out how the beers we serve are made.


The family home of perhaps Britain's best-known Prime Minister, Chartwell is not only a beautiful house and gardens to visit but also a wonderful place to learn about the life of Winston Churchill. Enjoy a walk around the 80 acres of grounds with your dog, or take a look at the huge collection of artefacts.


Built as an archbishop's palace, Knole has been home to the famous Sackville family for the last 400 years. Surrounded by a medieval deer park and its friendly inhabitants, the vast 600-year-old stately home boasts an important collection of art and 17th century tapestries.

Toys Hill

A beautiful expanse of National Trust-owned woodland near Sevenoaks, and a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest thanks to its abundant wildlife. The area inspired National Trust founder Octavia Hill, who grew up in nearby Crockham Hill, to preserve its beauty for future generations.

Hever Castle

The childhood home of Henry VIII's second wife Anne Boleyn is a fascinating place to explore, steeped in centuries of history. Admire the fine collection of Tudor portraiture, take a boat out on the lake, or get lost in the famous maze - a wonderful day out for all the family.

Quebec House

Explore the childhood home of celebrated British Army Major General James Wolfe, discover how he won America for the British at the Battle of Quebec and find out about his tragic death in battle. See the house as it was when the Wolfe family lived there in the 18th century.
