Leeds Castle in Kent


Leeds Castle, Kent
One of the loveliest castles in England - says the brochure. Set on a small island surrounded by superb gardens. There is a maze, children's play castle and birds of prey demonstrations.

Bodiam Castle, East Sussex
A beautiful castle surrounded by a moat. One of the few castles left that's still intact. A great place to explore and fabulous for photography.

Sissinghurst Castle & Gardens, Kent
Climb the top of the tower for amazing views! There is a good mix of activities for children and adults and a number of lovely walks.

A street in Rye

Historic towns

Rye, East Sussex
From the historic church to the old cobbled Mermaid Street, Rye is a very interesting place to visit. There is a town market on Thursday and the best Fish'n'Chips on the south coast (I think anyway!) Walk down to the Strand and visit some of the old fishing huts, which are now cafe's and antiques stalls.

Tenterden, Kent
This old market town is well worth a visit with its many unique little shops and cafes to enjoy. It is also home to the Kent & East Sussex Railway, which is also well worth a trip on.

Walking hand in hand through a vineyard

Chapel Down Vineyard, Kent

Based near Tenterden is one of England's leading winemakers. Tours of the vineyard happen most days. There is a great shop on site as well as the fabulous Swan restaurant, and of course, you can taste the wine too!

Woman walking in the countryside

Saxon Shore Way

The 160 mile route features a range of landscapes and scenery, as well as a wealth of cultural and historic interest. It stretches across North Kent to East Sussex, but passes through our local village of Stone in Oxney on its way to the historic town of Rye.

Great Dixter house and gardens

Houses & Gardens

Smallhythe Place, Kent

Home to the late gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd, this fabulous house and amazing gardens is place of pilgrimage for horticulturists from across the world.
