Sadly we have to report that the Hoppers was severely flooded on Sunday 9th February 2020, along with homes and businesses in Five Oak Green - as a result of Storm Ciara.
As of July 2020 we were pleased to report drying out work had been completed and most plastering reinstated. We were awaiting work to replace the flooring.
As of August, a small team of volunteers are onsite to decorate upstairs, whilst professional decorators are working downstairs. A huge amount of work has been achieved by the volunteers and other tradespeople to bring this great building back to life!
If you feel stirred to help financially in any way, please do donate using the following Just Giving site:
The building has stood for 400 years in the village of Five Oak Green near Tonbridge, set among the hop gardens of Kent.
Originally it was a row of farm cottages and is now comfortably furnished to provide a haven for those seeking a time away from the stresses and strains of 21st Century living. It's intriguing history goes back to the 16th Century.
Hoppers consists of two houses connected by a kitchen/dining room. The old main house has twelve beds.
The newer cottage has six beds. The ground floor is accessible for wheelchair users.
