In the Area
Perfectly located in a wonderful country spot yet so close to Canterbury, Wingham and Sandwich. An absolute walker's paradise. Just a few minutes walk along the road is the beautiful Goodnestone Park with its delightful gardens and tearoom, a favourite place for Jane Austen fans. Easy walks along the public rights of way including the Serpentine walk which encircles Goodnestone Gardens. (the free way to enjoy the views!). There is also the Old Dairy cafe with homemade produce from the garden. Wingham Wildlife park and Howletts zoo are very close by and offer a great day out for both young or old, and if bringing a baby it's peaceful and easy there with the buggy. Gibsons Farm shop is a half an hour walk away or minutes by car, and has a complete choice of local produce, including delicious cakes. The seaside towns of Deal, Sandwich and Ramsgate are within easy reach for a lovely day out by the sea. For great shops, dining and more - just 7 miles away from Canterbury and from here you can visit the Cathedral, punt along the river - or just enjoy both. New and old high street shopping, excellent restaurants and West end shows at The Marlowe Theatre. Dover is also an easy distance to visit the Castle, walk along the White Cliffs or take a day trip to France on the ferry! Seaside activities can be enjoyed at both Dover and Folkestone. Paddle boarding, kayaking and water games can be booked before and provide a day out. Closer still is the newly opened Wake and Aqua park in Sandwich.
