We had a great trip for the weekend to Oldbury Hill Campsite in Kent for a truly quiet and relaxed time. In fact i walked for two hours before finding a shop that was open on Saturday morning such was our location in a forest somewhere in this pretty county.
There really wasn’t much to do around the site but we did at least locate the Crown Inn, a decent pub with good food and cold cider which tasted even better than normal after dragging our camping gear up a hill for a mile from Kemsing train station.
On the way home we arrived to find the station would have no return trains at all, which is typical for my usual appalling planning which could’ve left us stranded in Kent for the evening. Fortunately i had one bar of battery left on my mobile so could google some local taxi numbers and get ourselves over to Sevenoaks which was on the mainline.
I hadn’t been around Kent at all before and really liked the look of the places that we visited. It also seems commutable to London in some places too. I expect we’ll be back at some point to try another area.
