The South East England / Kent region
Kent is in the South-East of England and consists of many important districts such as Dartford, Maidstone, Ashford, Canterbury and Dover.
Canterbury inspired Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and William Golding worked in Maidstone.
Kent is easily accessible by road, sea or rail. Indeed, Dover is the closest point to France and remains a hub for ferry travel to the rest of Europe.
The Canterbury / Chislet area
The Hayloft barn is situated on a rural country lane and surrounded by open farmland with easy access to reclaimed marshland in particular The Saxon Shore Way. This area is ideal for walking and cycling and there are regular sightings of heron, marsh harrier and egrets. Within easy walking distance of an excellent local pub, complete with log fire and good food served throughout the day. The Cathedral City of Canterbury is close by as well as the costal towns of Whitstable, Sandwich and Herne Bay.
Canterbury is a medieval city which is surrounded by the original city walls. Here you can visit the famous Cathedral and St Augustine’s Abbey, both of which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A whole day can be spent just exploring the Cathedral, Crypt and Cloisters. Canterbury also offers many other tourist attractions including, Historic River Tours, the Canterbury Tales attraction, and extensive shopping especially in the new Whitefriars centre.
Surrounding Canterbury there are many other attractions – for children the wild animal parks at Howletts and Port Lympne are great locations for days out. For garden lovers Kent and East Sussex boast many famous and beautiful gardens to visit. Gardens include Goodnestone Park Gardens, Mount Ephraim, Great Dixter in Northiam and the famous Sissinghurst Castle Gardens. A lovely afternoon can be spent exploring these gardens and enjoying tea and cakes in the tea room afterwards.
With the proximity of the Channel Tunnel and the port of Dover, day trips to France are so easy – you can also take the Eurostar to Paris which only takes 2 hours.
For golfers there is an 18 hole course on the outskirts of Canterbury, also the links course at Royal St George’s in Sandwich and the Royal Cinque Ports in Deal. For fishermen, Marshside Fishing Lakes where a day ticket cost £6 is just a mile away.
