If you want local produce, Kent Brewery is an excellent microbrewery located on Birling Estate – you can pre-order and they will deliver to site for you – check out their website for a full list of beers. Harvel House Farm Shop is open on Friday and Saturday – serving up their home grown meat – great for your BBQ – if you visit early in the day they will have the best selection of meat to choose from & they will happily store it in their cold store for you to pick up later.
Food and drink
If you want to explore the local eateries – the nearest pub is the Amazon and Tiger in Harvel or The Green Man in Hodsoll Street. Or if you would like a walk to build up your appetite head across Birling Estate to either the Nevill Bull Pub in Birling or the The Duke of Wellington in Ryarsh. Slightly further afield are The George and The Plough in Trottiscliffe and Meopham has The Cricketers, The Kings Arms and The George Inn. If you want to jump in the car for 10mins, West Malling has great range of restaurants.
If open space and country parks are your thing – you can stroll across to our private parkland at the edge of the site – it has magnificent views from the top of the downs. Or walk a little further to Holly Hill open space or the cafe at Trosley Country Park
