Thank you. It sounds nice but I doubt if we can fit it in. We found a guide who will take us to our priority sites for two days. Thanks to everyone who replied to my post.

Re eating out . From Rusthall you can easily walk to the Beacon pub/ restaurant (www.the-beacon.co.uk) which has good food and fabulous views over the countryside towards southern Tunbridge Wells. A lovely place to sit on the terrace if the weather is good.

Plenty of nice places to eat in T Wells (see restaurant pages), or try The Hare pub in Langton Green, which is the next village to Rusthall. Our current favourite, though, is the George and Dragon in Speldhurst - lovely old building and excellent food. It would be a taxi ride from Rusthall unless you have lots of energy for a very pleasant evening walk. Enjoy your stay, countryside looking lovely at the moment.

I am curious to know how your trip with guide/driver went, as my husband and I are looking to do something similar in spring 2015. Did you use taxis? Did you find a driver? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

It wasn't easy, but we did find a driver/guide. Most guides do not drive clients. Some we checked out provided a driver, but that, of course, increases the cost. We found a driver/guide from the list of guides on a website of Blue Badge Guides for Southeast England. Her name was Mrs. Rebecca Howard, and we used her for two full days; we jointly selected two places to visit each day--Chartwell, Knole the first day and Leeds Castle and Sissinghurst the second. She--and others--will take you wherever you want to go. We went in June 2013 and were lucky that the early spring had been cold, because there were so many things in bloom. If you can't find her or anyone else from the BlueBadge list, let me know and I will look for her email address.

Thank you for you reply! Do you remember the cost for each day?
