The South East England region
East Kent with the sea on three sides has many wonderful accessible sandy beaches to laze, play, swim and relax, Faversham has several medieval buildings and is the home of Shepherd Neame Kentish ale;
Five minutes along the coast from Faversham lies Whitstable, Kent's Southwold, with a slightly arty air and of course the famous local oysters, a product that has helped the development of seafood eateries in the town.
For those who fancy DIY seafood Herne Bay may well be the place, its famed sea-angling and sea-fishing boats giving you the chance to catch the big one. A couple of miles beyond the bay Streete Cottage in St Nicholas at Wade is a 17th century house that can be rented for an oak-beamed glimpse of the past.
At the eastern end of this coastline sits Margate, where sea-bathing took off with the invention of the bathing engine‚. Margate was for many decades the East Enders‚ choice for a great day out, and still provides simple pleasures: a good beach for the kids; whelks with vinegar; and amusement arcades. Surprising historic houses stand a stroll away, and less well-known still the two big caves beneath the town.
Just 9 miles from Faversham historic Canterbury, a renowned destination even before Chaucer. The Falstaff Inn was built only a couple of centuries after Chaucer; The Woolpack Inn nearby in picturesque Chilham has its own ghost;
To the west is conurbation of Rochester, Gillingham and Chatham with history aplenty to offer.
Rochester has an early Norman Castle with imposing keep, and a Cathedral from the same era. A grubbier part of its past, the old prison hulks, is recalled in the Guildhall Museum.
Chatham for a long time operated the biggest naval dockyard in the land. In the Historic Dockyard you‚ll find the ropery, at more than 400 yards the longest room in the country, and the submarine Ocelot.
Lying between Gillingham and Faversham is the Isle of Sheppey. Sheerness was established as a fort to protect the Medway, developing into a seaside resort in the 19th century. It has a blue flag beach, and the adjoining town of Minster has the Lees Beach, beloved of windsurfers, as well as the historic Abbey for those with a quieter outlook . The south coast has excellent birdwatching at Elmley Marshes and The Swale.
Faversham is one of England’s most historic and charming towns, nestling between the rural delights of the Kent Downs and the austere beauty of its coastal wetlands. It is a picturesque market town with nearly 500 listed buildings. Faversham dates from pre-Roman times, is mentioned in the Domesday Book and is a bustling place with a large numberof independent shops and restaurants.
Faversham also has some of the best walking in England, with way-marked routes through stunning Kent countryside and along the coastal Saxon Shore Way
There is excellent birdwatching a couple of miles from the Town at Harty Ferry.

"Lovely cottage, excellent location, would return again"
We rented the cottage for a week in school half term holiday. The cottage was very comfortable and suited all our needs. Large fridge/freezer, coffee pot and dishwasher - my husbands needs were met! The garden is small but it is big enough to sit out in the morning for breakfast.
The town was a few mintues walk away with a large Tesco round the corner. Faverhsam has a lovely farmers market twice a week, small cinema, pubs, tea shops, of brewary and is an excellent place to holiday - even with teenagers (14 &18)!
We decided to get the train to Canterbury which was much cheaper than parking and only took 10 minutes - recomment theMoat Tea Shop! YUM.
Lovely cottage, hope to return soon!

"Very comfortable, great hosts, perfect base to travel Kent!"
We stayed at this property in September/October 2012. The entire experience was great! The owners of the property were wonderful to deal with and made every effort to accommodate our needs. We were very pleased. The town of Faversham is a great base for exploring the Kent area, including Canterbury, Rochester, Broadstairs, Dover, and much more! The rail station was an easy 15 minute walk from the property, which came in very handy for day trips to London. The property was very comfortable for 2 adults. We would definitely recommend this property to others who want to stay away from the hustle and bustle, but still have easy access to the great sights of Kent!
