🏖 THE ENGLISH SEASIDE 🏖​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
With miles of golden sand and safe swimming in the sea shallows, Dymchurch Beach is a surefire hit with families. Though busy in the summer months, out of season you can often have the beach almost to yourself — even on a sunny Spring Sunday ☀️😎 ​​​​​​​​
💛 There are wonderful beaches within easy reach of Barnfield House…you can be on Camber Sands in 30 minutes, Dymchurch and St Mary's Bay in under an hour.​​​​​​​​
⭐️ With beaches like this, it's perhaps no surprise that Kent's coastline makes the cut in Lonely Planet's ‘Best in Travel 2022’ list of 10 hottest regions to visit this year — in 4th place and the only UK destination to be included. ​​​​​​​​

Oh the bliss of early evening sun, clear blue sky and birdsong… and the beauty of the High Weald AONB!

BLUEBELLS without leaving home?

There are so many fabulous woods close to Barnfield House, plus famous estates such as @holeparkgarden @scotneycastle_nt and @sissinghurstcastlegardennt

Even in our garden, they are putting on a fabulous show this year…in the shade of the mighty oaks on the steep banks of the pond and, here, circling the trunk of an oak felled by a storm years ago.

It's not much that can draw attention away from Scotney Castle….but the Rhododendrons are in competitive mood!

Rhodos seem to elicit strong and polarised opinions…are they the Marmite of the floral world? Are you a fan?

🦋A magical day at Sissinghurst 🌺​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
🌼 Kids of all ages love exploring the extensive gardens at Sissinghurst Castle Garden, as well as climbing the 78 steps of the Elizabethan Tower — the Rapunzel tower according to this little one. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
🦄 What's your idea of a perfect day out with toddlers?

🌷SISSINGHURST IN SPRING 🌺​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
"There is such a sense of urgency in the garden at this time of year. Nature is in charge and won't relinquish its grip for several months." This message from head gardener Troy Scott Smith greeted visitors to Sissinghurst Castle Garden this weekend. I love his blackboard description of coaxing and cajoling the garden into controlled exuberance!​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
The world-renowned garden is top of the 'Not To Be Missed' list for many of our guests — it's just 7 miles from Barnfield House, and one of many fabulous @nationaltrust estates in the area. Have you visited Sissinghurst? And do you have a favourite National Trust place to recommend?​​​​​​​​
