About the cottage

Carillon Cottage is located in the centre of Wadhurst High Street next to the Post Office and is owned by the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul.

The cottage opened in August 2001 for the benefit of the community at large and has become a focus for information and support for the whole village. It houses the parish church administrative office, the office for the Social Action Project (SAP) and an information centre open six mornings and four afternoons a week.

The information centre is staffed by a ‘Welcome Team’ of trained volunteers recruited from the local churches and other members of the community. Information is available on a wide range of subjects and volunteers are always willing to help those people who come to us with a problem or query.


carillon1bThe Parish Church Sunday School (Sunday J-Club) meets at the cottage on a Sunday morning, as do various other church-related groups. Carillon Cottage also offers a friendly, comfortable meeting place for other groups such as the Parish Council meetings, MP’s Surgeries and U3A groups.

Rooms can be hired for non-commercial purposes and people are always welcome to drop in just for a chat and a cup of tea. Internet access is also available in this ‘Hot Spot’.

Carillon Cottage provides a unique opportunity for us to work together to provide a service for the whole community. All services at Carillon Cottage are available to everyone and are entirely free of charge.

Since we opened our doors in 2001 we have been constantly evolving and will continue to adapt to the needs of the community in the future.
