The village of Kingston
Descending from Barham Downs at the lower end of the Elham Valley, the first glimpses of Kingston are of the 14th century church tower of St Giles, partially hidden by mature trees. A large part of the village (population approximately 450) lies within a Conservation Area on the north-east facing slope of the valley overlooking the Nailboume stream. From the valley bottom, The Street leads up the ever-steepening valley side to reveal fine views south-westwards across Barham Downs.
There are no shops in Kingston, but visitors are assured of a warm welcome at the Black Robin public house (named after a historical local highwayman).
Dating back to around 1740, The Black Robin is nestled in the heart of the Elham valley, in the Kent Downs Area Of Outstanding Natural beauty, and enjoys views across the countryside.
We serve the best Kentish ales, a carefully selected wine list which includes many award winning English wines, and a freshly cooked menu of British classics and seasonal favourites, all made from the very best locally sourced produce.
Whether you’re after a relaxing few hours sipping a pint of real Kentish ale by roaring log fire, a fresh and wholesome dinner with a chilled glass of wine or a cup of coffee or two with friends, The Black Robin is the perfect place to relax and unwind in good company.
‘Canterbury’s past is as rich as it comes’ says the latest Lonely Planet guide to Britain. This world-famous cathedral city was one of medieval Europe’s great places of pilgrimages and knowledge. Today – with its international visitors and four universities – it still has a distinctly cosmopolitan feel. Less than an hour from London and a 10 minute drive from Mulberry House, it’s in that corner of England that’s almost touching France.
A fantastic day out can be had from visiting historic sites, fab activities like punting together with an excellent array of shops, bars and restaurants. Take a look at the Visit Canterbury site to fully appreciate what this wonderful city has to offer.
Beaches and coastal towns close by.
Whitstable is like no other town by the sea. Its traditional charms, strong arts culture and rich maritime history complement Whitstable’s modern appeal.
Whitstable’s main claim to fame is its oysters which remain an intrinsic part of this sea town’s character and are celebrated every July at the Oyster Festival. Oysters and other delicacies from the sea can be enjoyed at the local restaurants and pubs or taken home from the fresh fish market at the harbour.
There are great little independently owned boutiques and antique/2nd hand shops with a bohemian feel.
There are 14.5 miles of coastline stretching from Seasalter to Reculver which attracts a large number of visitors and water sports enthusiasts. Take a look at Visit Canterbury for a more detailed overview of this wonderful coastline.
