- Family-run farm site overlooking its own vineyard
- Between 20 and 25 minutes from The Hop Farm and Leeds Castle
- Many more vineyards nearby: help available to arrange tours/tastings
You may have heard that the lush county of Kent has rather a few vineyards. Over 50, in vino fact, many of which should be ambled around on a Kent holiday of any type to source many, clanking, souvenirs.
And if you're keen to source Kent wine but don't want to go too far? Bed down at the green and spacious setting of Far Acre Farm 12 miles from Tonbridge, where a vineyard has been flourishing opposite the farm since 2010, to produce still and sparkling wines from pinot noir, pinot meunier, bacchus and chardonnay grapes: bottles and cases available, of course, to buy (the team particularly recommends its sparkling blanc de noir).
Far Acre has easy access to local attractions such as The Hop Farm, Bedgebury, Sissinghurst and Leeds Castle. It's close too to other Kent vineyards if your samples here make you eager to meander further; the Far Acre owners can arrange tours and tastings if you let them know in advance.
The site covers two and a half acres of handsome and level Weald of Kent ground, in a region once famed for its hops and apples and now known for its home-produced sparkling wines. It's a family-friendly and pet-friendly place, with plenty of room for roaming, playing or canine-led walkies, and is in a splendid setting for evening campfires (with wine), using the Far Acre upcycled fire baskets and firewood.
Amenities include showers and toilets, a washing-up area, charging facilities, chemical disposal and ice pack freezing.
