Hello all! I’m Sally and I blog over at Life Loving and All That Grows. Life Loving is my way to inspire others to get out and about and enjoy life more. All That Grows is more focused around my passion for gardening and everything that grows. I’ve teamed up with Joanna to put together a post about some of the nicest walks in Kent. Hope this helps you to get out and about this spring and enjoy some of the beautiful places Kent has to offer.
White Horse Wood Country Park, Detling
The walk around the White Horse Wood Country Park is around 4km in length. You can drive to the country park and there is plenty of parking.
The pathway for the walk starts directly from the car park and the route takes you through some lovely countryside. You can see the ruins of Thurnham Castle and take in the impressive views of the North Downs.
During your walk, you can also see the sculptures that commemorate the ash trees that were lost to Ash dieback disease. Trees are now thriving in the park, as over 20,000 trees have recently been planted there.
Cromers Wood, Sittingbourne
The Cromers Wood is a circular walk of around 2.5km in length. It’s good for kids as there are lots of fairy doors hidden in the trees but if you are taking really little ones, you’d be better with a carrier and not a pram as it’s quite steep in places. It also can get quite muddy.
It’s well sign-posted and there’s also a nice place to stop for a picnic – there are a few picnic benches which are ideal for a bite to eat.
Hucking Estate, Hucking

If you are heading to Hucking Estate for a walk, there are two routes you can choose. One that is just over 1.7km long and a longer walk, known as The Landscape Trail which is just under 5km. There is free parking on the estate or at the nearby Hook and Hatchet pub.
The walks are really picturesque, going through woodlands and fields. You are likely to see sheep and cattle on your route. There are benches and picnic benches dotted throughout the estate, so you can stop to admire the views or even take a picnic. In Spring, the bluebells are out in force.
Riverhill Himalayan Gardens
Located near Sevenoaks, Riverhill Himalayan Gardens is a great day out and one of the beautiful walks in Kent. There are over 12 acres of gardens to explore, including a good climb up to their viewpoint which gives amazing views across Kent. This is a great venue as it allows dogs into almost all areas within the estate, so they can exercise their four-legs whilst you try and keep up on your two!
The gardens are really picturesque all-year round, so it’s well worth planning walks during the different seasons so you can really enjoy the changing scenery.
We have a lot of lovely walks in the beautiful countryside that Kent can offer and these are just a few of them. Where have you walked in Kent? I’d love to hear about your routes.
