Needless to say, falling in love with Hoath House site was inevitable.
The location is simply picturesque with stunning views formed of luscious woodland breaking up typically Kent fields filled with wildlife and local farm animals.
There are dozens of footpaths connected to the property which had to be explored. We set off on a brisk 10k walk.
Straight away we felt engaged with nature in the silent countryside. No cars, no noise! Just the sound of birds, the odd cow and a rustle from bushes as we walked past. The walk stretched over a variety of fields each brining with it some form of wildlife, the best being a herd of wild deer. Although the Buzzards are always a great sight to see.
Along the walk we enjoyed sighting many historical buildings including an old thatched barn and water mill. Of course, Hever Castle was part of the route and this never disappoints, even if only walking the outskirts to see waterfalls, the lake and the surrounding outbuildings.
On the walk back we did stop of for a quick drink in the Rock Pub, a pub almost as old as the local Chiddingstone Castle. Also famous for serving Larkins from the very local brewery (attached to the pub).
Having completed our walk , we both looked forward to the next and were happy in the thought that our guests could share the local beauty. We hope that you enjoy the local walks as we continue to do so, creating your own memories as you go.
We recommend using footpathmap.co.uk to get around.
