Family Fun in the Kent Downs

There’s so much to do as a family in the Kent Downs. Getting your kids out in the countryside is not only healthy but encourages a love of nature and can be a whole lot of fun for free. Rolling down hills, climbing trees, climbing stiles, collecting sea-shells, conker collecting, kicking through autumn leaves…all simple, free and liberating pleasures. Nothing beats a good dose of fresh air in a beautiful location. Below are a host of inexpensive ideas to entertain your family.
