I have visited Brogdale's Apple Day twice now, and hugely enjoyed the event. The volunteers really know their stuff and are happy to go that extra mile to help you work out the variety of tree growing in your garden, which heritage apple trees to grow and what to do with them, from planting to cooking.

We went as a trio for lunch at the cafe and for a look around the little shops. We had some lovely food - jacket potatoes, baguettes and cake...! All the staff were a joy and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We also spent our money in the shops - a hat for one person, cider for another and handcream for... More

Came here as Christmas at Whitstable was a disaster! There was a lovely but small selection of stalls outside and some pretty ones indoors too. The shop staff are all delightful helpful people the place rarely disappoints, the only past negative was out of date goods at the bakery outlet that appears to have closed! It's a great place to...

This is a plantation hosting two trees of every variety of apple, plum and pear known to planet Earth, to ensure continuity of genus. Check out their website to see the events diary, a highlight is the apple festival at the end of September each year, but there are big happenings throughout the year. In addition, visit Brogdale for high... More

Grandchild had a child's meal, fish finger sandwich, crisps and apple slices, very good value and we three had a coffee. All good and will return to try the... More

Went on November 2, and had a pleasant stroll around the orchards. Sadly, the guided tours have finished now for winter and we could really have done with more information than the self-guided walk is able to provide. The Orchard Pass is good value at £10 (seniors) for a year and we plan to go back monthly and see how... More

Head down to the Brogdale Collection and take the guided tour of the Orchards. The guide let us taste apples brought over by Henry VIII to ones tasting of pineapple and aniseed and many others, none of which was like the ones we buy in the supermarket. Enough to challenge the tastebuds. As this is the home of the national... More

We visited the annual Apple Festival this October because we are thinking of planting some apple trees and wanted to make a selection. The place is an amazing collection of thousands of Apples, Cherries, Pear and Quince varieties. The visit to the orchards is based on a series of guided tours as you cannot just wander around. (The varieties are... More
