We are pleased to be welcoming back visitors to The Nest.
We have created space within our Boot Hill vineyard where you’ll be able to enjoy a leisurely afternoon in the Kent countryside. Inside your picnic you’ll find the best of Kent and Sussex produce, such as artisan cheese and charcuterie, local fruit and homemade bread, accompanied by a bottle of Gusbourne Brut Reserve. All this is presented in a Gusbourne bag with reusable picnic glassware for you to keep.
Picnics are priced at £80 for two people. On your booked date, you can arrive at your own leisure between 12.00 and 13:30. When you book your picnic, we will email to ask which basket - charcuterie or vegetarian - you would like. Please note, it is not possible for guests to bring their own food and wine onto the estate.
Bookings for picnics may be transferred up to one week prior to booked date, subject to availability. Due to the outdoor nature of these events, it is recommended to bring suitable clothing and footwear for your time at Gusbourne.
Please note, picnics must be booked in advance and are not available for drop-in guests.
