Chartham Vineyard is in East Kent, about 3 miles South West of historic Canterbury. We are on the northern fringes of the Kent Downs in an Area of Outstanding National Beauty, that is easy to reach on foot or by bike, car, train and bus.
Chartham Vineyard is right beside the Great Stour Way (also known as the Pilgrims Cycle Trail), which runs between Canterbury and Chartham.
This 3-mile traffic free, route (following National Cycle Route 18), offers a beautiful and tranquil journey along the banks of the River Stour right to our cellar door!
