Our Rosé Vineyard

This is a very special corner of Kent at the foot of the North Downs, a vineyard buzzing with life, the boundaries left as nature intended, the chalk stream full of energy, meandering down to the nearby river Darenth.

We have three picnic areas, each one with its own charm and natural connection to our Rosé vineyard. There are fifteen picnic pitches in total, each one available to book for two and a half hours with two time slots available each day, Wednesday to Sunday.

From our three picnic areas our 'grapes' picnic pitches are for families with young children for a group size of up to 10 (based on up to 2 households or social bubbles to meet government guidelines). Our 'stream' and 'bottles' picnic pitches are for up to 6 people.

Each comes with the hire of a wine chiller with ice and glassware. Different picnic pitches come with different styles of furniture - do check the list below for a summary before you book.
