Introduction:

Hello ! My name is Maggie Morgan. I live on the Kent, Surrey border and have a passion for history, our shared heritage and the natural environment. I run, cycle, walk and climb, whilst sharing my love of Kent and Surrey and all that is unique, amazing and fascinating about them !
From the Romans, to the Roses that grow in our hedgerows, Kent and Surrey and Sussex are rich in layers of history and natural beauty.
Let me show you around these counties. We can walk, explore, and seek out the special places that only a local can know well. Looking forward to meeting you soon !

Personal Interests: I live in an amazing barn surrounded by fields, where my husband Peter and I offer Bed and Breakfast accommodation. We can provide a unique and personalised service that meets your needs and personal interests and ensures your visit to the English countryside is exceptional in every way.

Special Interests:

Stately Homes & Country Houses
As a former Director and General Manager of the National Trust for 20 years, I have first hand ,behind the scenes knowledge of country houses across Kent and Surrey, their families and their secrets ! Specialising in Sir Winston Churchill and Chartwell I was responsible for this National Trust property for 15 years, meeting Mary Soames, Churchill's daughter on many occasions.
I have strong emotional connections with Vita Sackville West - the heiress who had to 'give up' her beloved Knole. Later going on to create, with her husband Harold Nicolson the world famous garden of Sissinghurst.

Countryside
With the North Downs, the Greensand Way and the Vanguard Way on my doorstep I can take you along the trails and by ways of this beautiful part of the English Countryside. My passion for this beautiful landscape along with my intimate knowledge of these trails, means I am an ideal guide to ensure you have a fun and informative guided walk.

Gardens
Kent and Surrey are blessed with incredible gardens - be they historic, such as Penshurst Place, or contemporary, as is Great Dixter. Lesser known gems include Nymans, Emmetts Gardens, Ightham Mote and Scotty Castle Gardens.
Kent is home to perhaps the most well known garden in England, Sissinghurst. Come with me and find out how this garden was created.
