Hush Heath Estate is the home of Balfour Wines.  Visitors are welcome, where you can enjoy vineyard walks, wine tasting and food platters.  There is plenty of seating outside and in, and currently a huge marquee too.  It's a beautiful spot to sit outside and enjoy the view. 

Cycle Route 2: A longer route to Egerton, taking in country lanes, The George pub, the Headcorn Airfield RCAF air memorial and an option to continue to Headcorn Aerodrome

This route has a few gradients so you'll need to be ready, but there is a pit stop at The George pub in Egerton (formerly The Barrow House).  The route back is mostly downhill or flat.

The George in Egerton

Cycle Route 4: A largely flat route to Tenterden, avoiding as much as possible the busy main roads.  Can return the same way or with an optional circular alternative.

There is plenty to see and do in Tenterden but getting there by bike means taking your life into your hands on the A274 so many avoid it.  This route attempts to avoid as many of the busier roads as possible.  It does mean it takes slightly longer but hopefully you'll feel safer.
