Balfour Hush Heath Estate, the home of Balfour Wines, dates back to the 1503, the manor is Tudor-framed and is currently the family home of the Balfour-Lynn's. The Manor nestles into the hill, overlooking the vineyards and estate with magnificent views across the Weald of Kent. Set across 400 acres enveloped in ancient oak woodland, visitors can pick up a map from their cellar door and explore the estate's vineyards, wild flower meadows and ancient oak woodlands.
