Springtime

Springtime

 I love this time of year!  The recent days of glorious bright warm sunshine has lifted the spirits and spurred  the enthusiasm for the garden back into action.  At the moment here at Charcott we are still getting the odd frost so haven’t yet been brave enough to plant anything new but it wont be long.  And to my delight the mild winter has meant that the geraniums that were left in the tubs outside the front door have actually survived and are just beginning to flower.  Last...

Update 13th February 2014

 So, with a further night of wild wind and   rain approaching I thought it might be a good idea to write a few reassuring words about the conditions at Charcott Farmhouse.  Yes, the garden is beyond soggy and coping with muddy Kent clay is not easy but we are dry, up high and well away from any flooding.  The bottom of the drive has seen better days in spite of doing substantial re-topping last year and there is an intermittent extremely large puddle at the bottom of the road but...

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea

  This is something special at Charcott Farmhouse.  We often find that guests arrive tired and stressed after a long drive with slow and crowded motorways and by the time they get here they are  sorely in need of the chance to relax and chill out.   On arrival at Charcott they are welcomed into the house, shown their room and are then offered the chance to sit down either in the guests’ sitting room or, if the weather is kind, outside on the terrace, with a large pot of tea or...
