About Woodpecker's Inn

Smallhythe Place is a 16th century timber frame building. It may have been the Smallhythe harbour master's office, from the days when the sea came much further inland and Smallhythe was a busy shipyard. Its fame today lies in its association with the actress Ellen Terry, the Victorian "Queen of the Theatre". She lived here from 1899 to 1928 and her collection of theatrical costumes and memorabilia is displayed. Also to be visited are the gardens including the rose garden, orchard and nuttery. The barn has been converted into a small theatre and performances are staged.

The property is now owned and run by the National Trust. Opening hours for 2008 are 15 March to 26 October, 11am to 5pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. There is a café and shop on site. Free parking is available close to the property.

Access is possible for the disabled.
