Hi I'm Chel - an independant professional photographer, mum, Whitstabubblian* and passionate about all things creative.
This blog is my way of combining my skills, interests and hobbies. I hope you find the blog entertaining/informative and enjoy my photography!
Just a 20 minute drive from Whitstable, located in the village of Chilham is the quaint Badgers Hill Farm & Cidery. It's a lovely place to visit with children and won't break the bank as it's free to visit - the only costs are if you want to buy a bag of food to feed the animals, if you decide to have lunch or afternoon tea from their cafe (which I would highly recommend) or you wish to make a purchase from their shop (perhaps some of their cider or home-made jam).
I recently visited with my partner and our 2 and a half year old son. The farm has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and my son loved it, especially the play park and seeing the animals. With parent's in mind, there are plenty of picnic tables placed around the play area so you can enjoy a bite to eat while the kids play.
There are plenty of animals to see including chickens, goats, donkeys, horses, geese, alpachas and ostriches.
There is also an enchanting area filled with windchimes and garden statues/orniments which are available for purchase. This area has a really magical feel to it with the haunting sounds of the windchimes hanging from the trees as you walk amongst angles, gnomes, fairies and scarecrows.
The cafe offers a variety of fresh home-made delights such as filled baguettes, toasties, quiche, salad, cream teas and cakes. They offer 'Dolls House Sandwiches' for kids comprising of a no-frills (ham/cheese/marmite/jam) sandwich, carrot and cucumber sticks and some smarties - which went down well with our son.
