What to do
You do not have to go far from The George Inn to be able to explore the countryside, coastal paths, white cliffs, rolling downland, mind-expanding marshes and sweeping beaches as well as sleepy villages or heritage-packed cities and towns. The Explore Kent website is full of useful local information and handy links to other websites and maps to download. Activities include walking, cycling and horse riding but also many other opportunities to get involved outdoors with the natural environment.
Kents’ long distance trails. such as The North Downs Way, provide wide horizons, stunning scenery, rich history and an exhilarating sense of freedom.
There are many walks, cycle trails and opportunities for horse riding in nearby Lyminge forest. Easy access trails are available for people with pushchairs, wheelchair users or for those who prefer flatter surfaces with no stiles or gates. These are perfect for the whole family to walk together and enjoy the Kent countryside no matter what age or ability. Kent Health Walks are short, local walks designed to help you to get active, get outdoors and meet new people. Led by friendly volunteers, they are especially good for people who are recovering from illness, or who just need a bit of extra motivation to take more exercise. There are winter walks to suit all abilities - an opportunity to get friends and family together and spend time in the great outdoors.
There are also opportunities to get involved through volunteering to help manage the numerous special habitats and landscapes in our area. This could include helping to plant trees, put up fences, protect local wildlife, or take part in surveys or biological recordings to help with conserving and enhancing our natural environment.
