Goodnestone Park

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!

Accommodation

Bewl Water

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!

Attractions

One Warwick Park

Muddy says: The perfect nesting spot for a night out, a stone's throw from The Pantiles and more importantly the train station. You're next sleepover is sorted.

Flowers by Enchantment

Muddy says: We love this independent, Tonbridge florist that is really at the heart of the local community and goes the extra mile to give you the best service. If you’re going to say it with flowers, try these friendly folk.
