Coming  Soon


                Witherdens Hall - A delightful Organic Retreat near Wingham in East Kent. Our friend Louise runs  the Hall and the separate Retreat facility. You can combine true business and pleasure in one location. Her special Kune Kune pigs are also the happy recipients of our left over apple pomace after pressing - the sausages are not to be missed at breakfast time!



             Mulberry Cottages - Offer a wonderful portfolio of self catering holiday cottages in Kent and across Southern England . If you want to travel and stay onwards from us then you can choose from delightful country cottages sleeping 2  (like ours) up to impressive spacious barns with swimming pool and tennis court for up to 40. See the website for more details at:



           Cheesemakers of Canterbury - Ashmore Cheeses - The perfect accompaniment for our cider (we personally think the vintage smoked with our Rough Old Wife original dry cider is the *&#$£”!!). Jane and her team are up for a well deserved Taste of Kent Award this year. So take away a piece of true un-pasteurized Kent from her Dargate dairy:
