Classic Vehicle Group would like to invite you to The Cider Hop Run. 

For 2021 we are hoping to be able to run the postponed event from 2020 but, Outline details are given below but are still subject to alteration and/or cancellation if government restrictions at the time dictate otherwise.

The start will Great Danes Hotel Ashford Road, Hollingbourne, ME17 1RE near Maidstone. The route will use many previously unused roads around Maidstone Ashford and Canterbury in Kent and our final destination will be Kent PIP Cidery, Bekesbourne CT4 5EA where will have a private tour and a tasting afterwards. Drivers will be offered a non-alcoholic alternative if preferred.

You can grab a tea/ coffee at the start if you want to, and after a short briefing, cars will then head off at around 9.45am You will then follow a tulip map route through the Kent Countryside to a lunch stop at the appropriately named Halfway House Pub , Challock TN25 4 BB , once you have booked I will send you a menu to preselect your lunch to make things quick and easy for us , after lunch we will tour the afternoon and end up at PIP cidery in Bekesbourne where we have a private tour organised for all participants with a sampling at the end. When this is complete you can either stay on at the barn bar venue which remains open all evening or make your way home at your leisure.

Should it assist your journey home, turn right out of the Cidery follow the road and signs to the A2 and you will join the A2 towards London.
