Places to Visit - Badgers in Chilham

If you’re local to Kent, I can highly recommend taking a trip to Chilham, not only to wonder around this beautiful Tudor village boasting a snug little tearoom and welcoming real ale pubs all off the main square, but to visit Badgers on the main road through. Badgers is a small and friendly garden centre who offer cream teas in the cafe, the most wonderful cake displays and ploughman’s lunches to boot as well as a delightful gift and trinket shop and the most inspiring outdoor collection of shabby chic seating, weathered statues, rustic furniture and vintage garden finds – great fun to explore and I always come away with lots of ideas.  

The best bit though? No, not the local cider, although that is good. The grounds are home to many different sorts of wildlife from pot-bellied pigs and rheas to wallabies and capybaras. Not to mention the constant stream of ducks and chickens wandering by. You can visit for free and kids absolutely love it. Ok, you got me, I absolutely love it. Badgers is a real gem in the Kentish countryside, be sure to check it out if you can.
