Dogs: We welcome well-behaved dogs, but you should be aware that there are often sheep in the fields close to the house so you must keep a close eye on your dog and make sure that it’s under control all the time.

Things To Do Locally:
We are surrounded by beautiful and interesting places to visit, enough to suit every taste and all weathers, including beautiful towns and villages, houses and gardens, castles, museums, cathedrals and churches, vineyards, wildlife, beaches, cliffs and lakes.
Then there's a miniature railway at Littlestone, a steam railway at Tenterden and miles of open spaces for walking and cycling.
Udimore is a small village but is lucky to have two pubs which provide excellent lunches, dinners and drinks. Trip Advisor has some very nice things to say about the Plough, which is only a short walk away. Their website is still under construction but call Simon Aylott or his son Toby on 01797 223381 to book a table. The King’s Head is a short drive away and under new management. We haven’t been yet (we don’t really need to with the Plough so near and so good!)
