Twyford Bridge Yalding

Discover Yalding

Nestled in the beautiful Wealden countryside, Yalding is a quaint village, six miles south-west of historic Maidstone. Yalding village centre is situated approximately half a mile from The Boathouse, to the east. Yalding Railway Station, which serves the Medway Valley Line on the Southeastern network for trains to Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, and Strood/Medway, is situated half a mile to the north of the pub.

The Boathouse country pub is next to Twyford Bridge, one of the finest medieval bridges in the south of England. Popular with kayakers and other river users, it crosses the point where the River Teise meets the River Medway.
