Details

HILLY SCENIC WALK

Venture into the depths of the Kent countryside, through dense woodland & lavish orchards as we hunt down beautiful bluebells (or are they purple), with a close encounter with an impressive Mausoleum & a beer garden or two to complete the day.

Hard moderate hike, tipping on the edge of the strenuous domain, a good test for those wishing to dip their toes into the next level.

(Note): No guarantees we will uncover bluebells.
