Please refer to our Wealdway Accommodation, Services and Mileages Table (below) for places along the Wealdway for which we have service details. We also supply Wealdway guidebooks and maps information.
The Wealdway is an 80 mile walk connecting the Thames at Gravesend in Kent to the English Channel at Eastbourne in East Sussex. It is a surprisingly isolated walk at times, especially considering it passes through the crowded south-east of England. That said, it has plenty of accommodation and other services. The route begins at the same place as the Saxon Shore Way, crosses the North Downs Way near Trottiscliffe, and connects to the South Downs Way just prior to Eastbourne.

Notes on Wealdway Accommodation

Wealdway accommodation
Wealdway

We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Wealdway Accommodation, Services and Mileages Table (below). Simply click on a location to open the location page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info.
We display a wide range of Wealdway accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve the information on our website, so we always welcome Wealdway accommodation recommendations.

Wealdway Restaurants and Pubs

Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Wealdway, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. Please refer to our Wealdway Accommodation, Services and Mileages Table and click on a location. Restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
