Ashford has much to offer for the visitor to see and do. From little Tea Rooms in the town centre to the Curious Brewery. Kent is now well established for vineyards so a visit to Balfour Winery, which also offers tours when in season, is a must for wine lovers. With the Kent countryside, there’s plenty of outdoor activities on offer or perhaps just a picnic to take in the scenery. For families who love animals, due to the rural setting, there are a number of interesting options including the Big Cat Sanctuary in Smarden with over 50 big cats and home to Maya the Jaguar, of the BBC2 series Big Cats About the House.
