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


For our first visit today, we head for Staplehurst and Hush Heath Estate and vineyards. Here we enjoy a guided tour and can learn all aspects of grape-growing before visiting the winery where the production process of still and sparkling wine is explained. We finish with a tutored tasting of six Hush Heath Estate wines and ciders. Leaving the vineyard we have a short drive to the Goudhurst Inn, part of the Hush Heath Estate, for Ploughmans Platter lunch.
After our visit we head to Royal Tunbridge Wells. Royal Tunbridge Wells lies in the heart of the beautiful High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The historic spa town has welcomed visitors for over 400 years. Browse among the chic independent shops of the colonnaded Pantiles and the High Street, with buzzy cafes bars, music and one-of-a-kind shops.


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 - 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, parts of it date back to Roman times. We continue to Tenterden - Known as the ‘Jewel in the Weald’ the town makes an ideal place to finish the day.


Today we head to historic Faversham. We begin with a visit to the Shepherd Neame Brewery for a guided ‘behind the scenes’ tour. After our tour you will have free time to get lunch and explore one of southern England’s most charming towns. It now has over 475 listed buildings and a good selection of independent shops. (Cautionary Note: Shepherd Neame Brewery is an industrial site and anyone entering the brewery must be wearing the appropriate footwear – flip flops, sandals or open toe shoes will not be permitted).


After breakfast we leave and begin our journey home.
