Welcome to Hemsted cars

Hemsted Cars is based in Cranbrook, Kent and provides professional private hire services throughout the locality and beyond. All the company's drivers are members of the Institute of Advanced Motorists and/or The Guild of Chauffeurs and we have both male and female drivers.

Our aim is to provide our clients with a service which removes, at least in part, some of the stresses involved in travel. We understand how nail-biting it can be to have to wait for a taxi to the airport or station. We promise we will be on time, in a well maintained car, knowing where we are going.

For those under a little less pressure, we have knowledgeable drivers who are happy to show you round the County. Whether your interest is the incredible gardens of Sissinghurst, Penshurst Place or Knole Park, or the historic houses of Chartwell, Bateman's and Ightham Mote.

We are fortunate enough to live and work in one of the most amazing parts of the country and we would be delighted to share it with you.


Kent, East Sussex and the Home Counties offer unique opportunities to visit castles, stately homes, historic venues and gardens famous the world over. Let us discuss with you a personal itinerary which can be tailored to suit your needs. We will arrange hotels, restaurants or Bed and Breakfasts and local pubs. You tell us what you want and we will help produce your itinerary.


Travel used to be considered glamorous. Now it is more of a scrum and for those who live in a rural setting the first problem can be actually linking up with public transport. Certainly it is a real issue for people living around Cranbrook. Whether your onward journey is for business or pleasure we can deliver you to the local stations, the London airport of your choice or even the port at Dover.


Wherever your journey, Hemsted cars can discuss with you the options available. Often it is a problem of timing. It's very difficult to go up to London for and evening out and still make the last train down. We can arrange to pick you up when it suits you, so you can see the whole of the last act or stay to the end of the party. The same goes for local journeys. Call us we can help.
