Flavours of Kent

The historic county of Kent is renowned not only for its rural beauty but also has more castles than any other county. Our holiday showcases some of the fine wines, ales and cheeses produced in the county and we have also chosen to visit to Hever Castle.. We can enjoy the delights of the award-winning wines of Chapel Down Winery, ales of The Old Dairy Brewery and award-winning cheeses of Cheesemakers of Canterbury. All producers share a great pride in that they use only the finest locally-sourced ingredients for their produce but use the traditional methods in their crafts.
