Using our trusty National Trust membership card we felt priviledged to be "allowed" to roam free in one of the most special places I have visited in Kent. I even got right to the stop of the Tower, steep, slanted, wooden steps, spectacular views from the top, so far as the mote and beyond. The tower was full of informative writings on the walls where the prisoners of war were kept, the gardens were so pretty with bee hives, an orchard, even Autumn crocus (never knew they existed) underneath the apple trees. Vegetables and fruit grown there supply the tea house and restaurant. Enjoyed the cream tea, only disappointment was the prices in there and the offishness of the young people working there. Also, don't sit at the table downstairs near the window as the pong from the toilets spoiled the taste of the scones!! But all in all, a lovely visit.
