Sugar and Spice with I’ll be Mother this Christmas


On Thursday 13 December, we will welcome carol singers to The Beacon. Starting at 7.30pm, the evening will raise money for Hospice in the Weald, who do such vital work in our community, providing care to patients with a terminal illness, their families and carers. We have supported this charity for several years now, and the carols evening is always a lovely way to properly start the festive season. We look forward to seeing you there.


Kingdom Cafe

Our new woodland kitchen café at Kingdom in Penshurst, is open 7 days a week, 9-4pm, including the festive period, except on Christmas Day. Come for breakfast or lunch and bring the family (well-behaved dogs welcome too!) for a walk to burn off one too many mince pies.

We have hearty stews such as braised beef and roast roots and warming curries including one sweet potato, tofu and spinach, plus lighter options such as celeriac and mushroom broth and a warm butternut squash, romanesco, goats’ cheese and pearl barley salad. 

Mother Love

Tis the season to be jolly, but we all know Christmas time is also the season for all things sparkly and the promise of new beginnings and adventures. If you’re planning to pop the question or, indeed, planning to say ‘yes’ to the big question, Mother Love is I’ll be Mother’s new wedding and events team. For weddings and celebrations from 12 to 160 there is a space within our four homes for every wedding whimsy.
