About the Village

Bethersden is a lovely little village about six miles south west of Ashford in East Kent. The village has two pubs, the Bull at the western end of the village on the A28, and The George at the centre, where you also find the Post Office/Shop and other shops. Also here are St. Margaret’s church and the Union Chapel. Behind The George is the George Field, recently acquired by the village as an open landscaped recreational area. To the east, in Mill Road, is the Recreation Ground which provides a wide range of sport facilities such as tennis and basketball and also football. There is a children’s play area and exercise equipment for all ages.

The village has excellent access to transport links, including the A20 motorway (15 minutes away), bus services to Ashford and Tenterden (with excellent shopping facilities), and Ashford International rail station which has high speed services to London and the Continent. Rail services are also available at Pluckley, only 4 miles away.

Bethersden is a small but very friendly community with a surprisingly wide range of leisure facilities. Please visit the Clubs and Societies pages to see what’s available and who to contact.
