Farming and Animals in the Kent Downs
Have you ever wandered how to milk a cow, sheer a sheep or drive a tractor?
We're working with local farmers to help them diversify and offer farming experiences to visitors. If you're looking for something less hands-on then why not book a stay in beautiful farmyard or vineyard accommodation all with our outstanding Kent countryside right on the doorstep.
While we continue to turn our exciting plans into reality you can sign-up below and follow our social media channels to get inspiration for the future and to hear more about upcoming farming and animal activities near you.
