Things to do
There is fantastic walking – including four mapped and signed walks from the door The Bore Place Walks. Explore The Greensand Way, Bough Beech reservoir and Toys Hill and enjoy classic Kent countryside.
Pick Your Own
Kent is the garden of England and in the summer months there are plenty of opportunities to visit traditional farms and pick local fruit, nuts and vegetables.
As we are an organic estate, we have an abundance of wildlife living at Bore Place. At certain times of the year, we organise bat walks which you are welcome to book on to as we have a large bat population. Other commonly spotted species here include badger, hare, deer (including an elusive white deer), newts, rabbits, owls, birds of prey and field mice. We make a great place to bird watch, being only a short walk away from Bough Beech Reservoir which is known as a good spot to see great crested grebe and kingfisher as well as other regular waders and wildfowl. It’s also famous for its migrating ospreys in spring and autumn.
There is also excellent biking on offer. You can find mapped routes here. You can also arrange to hire bikes from countrybike.co.uk who will deliver them to you on-site.
With very little light pollution, Bore Place is a perfect place to stargaze and watch the night skies. At certain times of the year, we run astronomy workshops but even without astronomy knowledge, on a clear night, there is plenty to enjoy whilst sitting out around a fire pit.
We are close to several spots for wild swimming as well as organised outdoor swimming via TriSwim.
We are lucky enough to have a big estate that is very quiet and not visited much. Full of woodlands and quiet spots, we invite you to come and get close to nature in your own way. Watch the sunrise or the sunset, listen to the birdsong, watch the trees in the breeze and feel the benefits of time outside escaping from the pressures of modern life.
There is a programme of exciting events that take place across the year at Bore Place from foraging to beekeeping and bread making to bat walks. Find out more here
