Thursday

We journey south arriving at our hotel in the afternoon for our 4-night stay.

Friday

We head to Hush Heath Vineyards. Our visit includes a tour of the estate, with tasting and lunch at the nearby Goodhurst Inn. From here we visit the Winterdale Cheese Farm for a guided tour of the dairy and cave, followed by cheese tasting and cream tea.

Saturday

We begin with a ride to historic Faversham. Nestling between the rural gently sloping Downs and the austere North Kent marshes, Faversham is one of southern England's most charming towns. It now has over 475 listed buildings and a broad selection of independent shops. We have time for lunch here before we leave for our afternoon visit to the Shepherd Neame Brewery for a guided 'behind the scenes' tour. Afterwards we round off the visit with Hop Pickers Afternoon Tea.

Sunday

This morning we head for the land of mysterious marshes and smugglers. First, we come to New Romney. A Cinque Port since 1155, the Great Storm of 1287 changed the course of the River Rother and made New Romney an inland town. Next, we arrive at Lydd. In the 18th and 19th centuries the town was notorious for the activities of 'owlers' (Local smugglers hooting to each other at dead of night). Have a look at All Saints Church - The Cathedral of the Marsh, which has a soaring 132ft tower, and at 199ft is Kent's longest church. As we head inland spot the tower of St Mildred's Church at Tenterden. Horatio, Lord Nelson's daughter by his mistress Emma Hamilton, was at one time the vicar's wife. Known as the 'Jewel in the Weald' the town makes an ideal place to finish the day.

Monday

After breakfast we leave and begin our journey home.
