Edards & Spong Woods
Walk back up to stone street but don’t cross it, instead take the lane on the left and after 0.5 mile turn right onto Misling Lane. There is a bridle path on the next bend which takes you down through the bluebell woods with possible deer sitings and orchids in the spring. Then walk around the field in the valley and up hill back onto Misling Lane

Canterbury City
The historic City of Canterbury with its ancient cathedral, museums and city walls is only a short drive away.

Both Port Lympne and Howlets Wild Animal Parks are also close by.

Alpaca Trekking
Haguelands Village, Burmarsh Road, Burmarsh
Romney Marsh, TN29 0JR

The alpacas we use are halter trained, gentle, sensitive and inquisitive – which leads to fun and laughter; and they get as much pleasure from the trek as you will. Trekking with us is a wonderful way to get the feel of Romney Marsh, the Dykes, the Farmland and crops, and it is a unique time with our alpacas to learn more about them.
Alpacas make ideal partners for trekking for all ages, groups, singles and special occasions.
