The South East England region

Kent has a haven of traditional English countryside.With rolling hills, wooded valleys and far reaching open landscapes you will be spoilt for choice for a summer picnic spot or crisp autumnal stroll.

If you visit Kent would not be complete without taking the time to appreciate the famous tales of Canterbury and Rochester and paying a visit to some of the towns and villages sitting at the heart of the county. For a more active way to unwind, Kent's 12 blue flag beaches offer many opportunities to take part in water sports.


Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in east Kent, England, about 80 miles (130 km) south-east of London. It is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The town lies above a harbour with cliffs on either side. It has seven bays of golden sand, which are Dumpton Gap, Louisa Bay, Viking Bay, Stone Bay, Joss Bay, Kingsgate Bay and Botany Bay. Broadstairs has a very mild maritime climate.

Broadstairs is a wonderful mixture of Victorian architecture, hidden cobbled squares, cliff top walks and sandy beaches. Our shops still offer a personal service with a range of goods and gifts that independent stores do so well. Delicatessens and local butchers: bakers and grocers; unique clothes, gifts, books, antiques and even a Teddy Bear hospital.

Broadstairs is not only a summer resort but a great place to spend time in the winter. With Halloween events and firework displays through out the local area and beyond it's a good time to have break away from home. The Viking Trail is a good enough reason in itself to visit Broadstairs, a cycling and walking route showing the best of Kent's coastline. A Coast for all Seasons!

The summer holidays may have slipped away, but our coast is still lively and open for inspirational fun at great attractions. Get a cultural fix at Turner Contemporary, or immerse yourself in compelling World War II history at the Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum – all for free. Relive childhood magic at the Hornby Visitor Centre, or follow the adventures of Major Powell-Cotton in Africa and Asia at The Powell-Cotton Museum, Quex House and Gardens.

Kent is a great place for walking and where better to enjoy a day out than along a coastal trail which include:

The Viking Costal Trail - 27 mile (43.5km) route on the Isle of Thanet, where Vikings first landed in Britain in 449AD.

The Saxon Shore Way - a fascinating 163 mile walk, from Gravesend to Hastings, East Sussex.

The South Foreland walk offers a chance to explore parts of the Saxon Shore Way and also sections of the North Downs Way.

The Minnis Bay to Reculver Country Park route follows the coastal defences of the North Kent coast

Walmer Castle to Deal Castle - take in two of the best preserved fortifications to be found along this section of the Kent coast.

Samphire Hoe walk - Enjoy magnificent views along this coastal walk through the newest part of Kent.

Turner and Dickens - newly opened, 4 mile coast to coast route between Turner's Margate and Dickens' Broadstairs.

Maritime Heritage Trail provides four trails centred around Thanet, Medway, Whitstable/Herne Bay and Dover

Wantsum Walk an 8 mile trail between Herne Bay and Birchington

Dover wildlife walk - a short 4 mile circular walk


Cycling near the coast can be very rewarding. Stunning views and often easy flat surfaces make coastal cycling in Kent an ideal way to spend a family day out.

Coast to Cathedral - from Dover to Canterbury

Crab and Winkle Way - from Canterbury to Whitstable

The Viking Coastal Trail - from Pegwell Bay to Reculver

Sandwich in Kent to Rye in East Sussex


Abundance of great places to have traditional seaside fare of fish and chips!

Ice Cream parlours including the famous Morelli's which retains its fifties style

The town is lucky to have a wide range of restaurants, bars, bistros and cafes - serving wonderful local food, freshly prepared. You can enjoy food from almost every continent of the globe.

"Very comfortable, excellent location, lovely secluded garden and off road parking."

We had just 3 days here and wished we could stay longer. The house was immaculately clean and well stocked with crockery and personal touches. The bed was very comfortable and the leather sofas too. Lovely little secluded garden with new furniture for sitting outside and enjoying the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. It was just 5 minutes walk to the town centre and the beaches so no worries about finding a parking space as the car could be left at the house on the driveway, A major advantage. Gina was really welcoming and left us milk and choc chip cookies, as well as an ample supply of tea, coffee and sugar. There was also a sachet of a delicious organic tea from the locally based Rosie Lea tea company. There was Sky TV and free wi-fi so we had everythign we needed and more. Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at Shorley Wall over the 2013 Christmas period. The owners, Gina & Terry have provided a lovely clean & cosy house which was equipped with everything we could have possibly needed, including the Christmas tree! There are also thoughtful extras, in our case, some spiced Christmas tea and delicious cookies. Shorley Wall is also conveniently located in a peaceful cul de sac, yet is only a few minutes walk into town and offers excellent accommodation for friends and family alike. All-in-all, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Shorley Wall and would like to thank Gina & Terry for their excellent hospitality.

"A Great Place to Stay"

Shorley Wall has pretty much every thing in it's favour.
A property with 3 good sized bedrooms, nice family lounge, spacious kitchen & conservatory.

All this and just a 5 min walk to the beautiful Viking Beach
