Heritage Railways, Vineyards and a Brewery too!
The Garden of England
Ashford and Tenterden really is becoming something of a destination for the discerning wine lover. No surprise then that the Tenterden area in particular is home to award-winning wine makers Chapel Down Winery and Biddenden Vineyards. Close by are Gusbourne Estate and Hush Heath Estate and Winery and all are leading the way in producing quality English wines of distinction. Smaller vineyards at Harbourne, Sandhurst, Westwell and Woodchurch are also worth checking out.
If real ale is your tipple then head over to the Old Dairy Brewery in Tenterden. Book a tour and treat yourself to one or two of their speciality beers from the shop.
Next door you'll find the home of the Kent & East Sussex Railway and south east of Ashford is the world-famous Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway.
