Buttercups and Daisies: A family friendly walk, in part along The Greensand Way full of stories, folklore, legends and myths about the trees, flora and the fauna we find while out walking in this beautiful area of Kent. On route, we will get to see the amazing and inspiring views of the Weald of Kent and beyond, and the many deer’s prancing in the grounds of Boughton Monchelsea Place.

… but there’s more, this walk also includes a stop at Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats.

There is no set fee for entry to Buttercups but a donation of £4 per person is suggested.

This will be payable on arrival on the day by participants.

Refreshments and gifts can also be purchased, and these goats like to be spoilt, so bags of food are available to purchase for them too.
