Salomon’s Estate

The weather was atrocious on Friday in Kent… real monsoon weather and even though the forecast was for it to clear up by Saturday morning… how it was raining left you with the impression that this abysmal weather is in for the weekend…. What luck we had when we awoke on Saturday morning, and even though the temperatures had dropped and it was breezy… it was dry.

So off we went… heading towards Royal Tunbridge Wells, and a place called Salomon’s Estate.  Set in the countryside and on a hillside… the hotel, which is renowned for its weddings stood up on the hillside overlooking woodland and a wonderful lake.

You can see why people want to get married there… it is beautiful.

To walk around the estate in free and there is plenty of parking.

With its two lakes, one with a picturesque wooden bridge, there is beauty in every corner of this wonderful estate.

The woodland paths were a bit slippery and he had his camera already to get me flat on my rear as I slid down the paths at times… but I managed to stay on my feet… didn’t do my knees much cop as I tried to retain my balance but the stroll was beautiful.  And the grasses and woodland flowers were a delight to photograph.

So if ever you are in Royal Tunbridge Wells, I highly recommend Salomon’s Estate to take a stroll around.

I am an amateur photographer, blogger and digital artist as well as being the female half of RyanPhotography. We both have a keen interest in landscape and floral photography. And we live in Kent, also known as the Garden of England, in the United Kingdom. We both have a desire to travel and hopefully one day move to somewhere where it is picturesque and a photographer's delight.

My in-laws lived in TW for years but I’ve not only never been to Salomon’s Estate I’ve never heard of it. I especially like your monochrome photo of the grass. The sweeping curve and the texture in the head of the plant are really pleasing.

I just asked my husband who lived in TW and he’s never heard of it either. Oops. We fail.

Thank you… I had never heard of the place until I Googled places to visit in Tunbridge Wells…and it came up in a search. I was quite pleased how that grass came out as it was taken in a very dark area of the woodland.

I think you find that though… there are places where you live that you’ve never heard of. I know when I’ve got talking to people and they’ve asked me if I have visited so and so where I live and I have to say ‘I don’t know where that is or I’ve never heard of it.’ I think we all have a tendency to ignore or know what is local to us.

We were only talking the other night and my husband who has lived in this area for nearly 40 years has never been up Rochester Castle… and it is just over the river from us 😀 😀

I just love comments... Thanks for stopping by...
