Getting the kids outdoors this winter in Kent

Winter is a great time to bundle up in waterproofs and wellies and get outdoors. Our places are the perfect wintery playground to tempt everyone outside at this time of year. Get the kids running around in the fresh air on the estate at Scotney Castle, marching round the grounds at Emmetts Garden, or exploring the natural play area at Ightham Mote.
