Orchards and vineyards heavy with plump fruit demonstrate the fecundity of the land, which is dotted with elegant stately homes with carefully manicured grounds and intimate walled gardens. Where the fertile landscapes of Kent and East Sussex meet the sea, towering chalk descends into beautiful stretches of beach. Lovely seaside resorts or ancient, historic towns provide a perfect base for exploration.

“Bateman's is a small, history-packed, warm and welcoming National Trust house with perhaps the friendliest volunteer room guides I’ve ever encountered! Really interesting artefacts and exhibition on Rudyard Kipling himself.” (Jackie)
