Woodchurch

A picturesque village situated within easy reach of the historic market town of Ashford and the Cinque Ports of Tenterden.


The village sits delightfully on the edge of the Weald of Kent and proudly accommodates an old Kentish Smock Windmill which overlooks the village from the north. Originally one of a pair of windmills on this site, they were collectively known by locals as ‘The Twins’. The stand alone mill is a visitor attraction and opens its doors to visitors throughout the summer months.

As a country village, Woodchurch could not be better stocked with amenities for its residents. There is a butchers shop, a post office, a general store and a newsagents to name just a few. The village also boasts a primary school, a doctor’s surgery, a dedicated museum, a Grade 1 Listed 13th century church, village hall and a beautiful village green.

Like many Kentish villages, Woodchurch has its own Morris dancing side known as the Woodchurch Morris Men, who started dancing together in 1990 to perpetuate the ancient tradition and have many stands throughout the year.

If Morris dancing is not your thing, there are two popular pubs situated in the village, The Bonny Cravat and Six Bells both located opposite the church in the main village. The Bonny Cravat is a managed Shepherd Neamepub and The Six Bells is a free house.

As a large, social community, there is plenty going on. There are many societies held regularly including a local history society, a pantomime society, an art group, a gardening society, the WI, Scouting and Guides Associations and a film society.

For those who enjoy playing sport, there are plenty of active clubs including a football, cricket, badminton, bowls, tennis and a netball club.
