Join us as we explore a route of outstanding beauty across orchards, woods, and picture postcard villages in Kent. Our trail will take us through scenic Cobham Park, once walked by Charles Dickens who lived nearby.
From there we will cross the North Downs, hiking through the area's magnificent forests. The trail will take us as far as the mysterious lost village of Dode, abandoned in the 14th century.
On our way back we will stop by picturesque Holly Hill, the highest point of the walk. We will then celebrate the day's adventures with some well deserved food and drink at a local country pub.
