My husband and I recently spent a night in the rooms at Terlingham Vineyard and we had an absolutely wonderful time. Lorna and her family were so welcoming to us, including the adorable property dog! While they weren't doing tastings the weekend we stayed, Lorna recommended several wines for us to order and we arrived to a lovely hamper filled with chilled wine and snacks. We had access to the vineyard where we enjoyed our wine, as well as the complementary breakfast in the morning. The view is spectacular and it was basically like having our own private vineyard! The room was comfortable and very clean, would definitely recommend an evening at the vineyard for a perfect weekend getaway!
Had an excellent afternoon at this lovely vineyard. Caroline and Jackie, as always, were fantastic hosts, very informative and enthusiastic about their wines. The wines are all very impressive alongside the delightful cheeseboard. This really is a beautiful place and despite the rotten weather, it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. We would thoroughly recommend a visit to this vineyard!!
We came here for the vineyard tour and tasting. It's a family business and the very friendly sisters toured us around. The vineyard is fairly small but all the vines are tended by hand! The tour was very informative and the tastings were very enjoyable- each wine is very different on the palate. After the tasting session we went into the marquee for our supper; bread, crackers and a large selection of cheese which was very tasty and we had the option to have some more wine at a very reasonable £4 per glass. I thoroughly recommend a visit here.
This visit to Terlingham Vineyard was a gift for Father's Day. It is easy to find and in a beautiful setting in Hawkinge' Kent with amazing views. We were welcomed by three lovely sisters who made everyone feel special. This is a family run business and the owners have 8 Acres of vineyards. Originally from South Africa they have a fantastic knowledge and work ethos at this small but friendly run business. We were in a group of about Twenty people, which was just about right. This was the vineyards first taster/ open day and it was brilliant. The girls were so kind and went through their whole procedure of how they make their wines which incidentally have won two awards. After the tour comes the wine tasting. Everything about the grapes etc was explained and samples were offered. This was done outside a Marquee as it was a lovely day. Then we were offered a lovely cheese board with fresh crusty bread, crackers, biscuits, pickle and lots of different cheeses. You could also buy a glass of their lovely wine too or they provided water or orange juice. The girls never lost sight that you were guests and looked after everyone. To mop up we had cake and a choice of tea and coffee. We also had a lovely chat with their mother who was tending the vines. Overall, very interesting set up in a lovely area, and lovely people, totally recommended. I had a kip for an hour when I got home! Lovely wines, good price, smashing treat. Well worth a visit…
Caroline and Jackie could not have made us more welcome. Their enthusiasm and knowledge made this a really interesting and enjoyable visit despite the weather. The wines that we tasted were super, and the chocolate cake went down a treat!
