Muddy says: Goodnestone Park is a stunning, privately owned stately home and garden near Canterbury. You can hire the whole house for that truly special function or weekend with friends. There's a reason it was a favourite of Jane Austen and the producer of Downton Abbey!
Muddy says: Bewl is a big, beautiful reservoir offering a fantastic range of outdoor activities - from cycling to open air cinema, children's parties to cookery courses - there's fun stuff to do all year round. Oh and a decent restaurant too!

Muddy says: Stunning historic gardens only recently restored to their former glory, so earning the name 'the Lost Gardens of Sevenoaks'. Explore the jungle-like pathways, enjoy homemade cake in the café or let little ones discover the cute play area - and there's special events like kids' craft, gardening workshops and foraging courses too!
