The South East England region
Kent is steeped in history and rightly known as the 'Garden of England' with rolling hills, orchards, hop fields and an extensive and varied coastline.
There is something for everyone - the majestic Tudor castles of Dover, Deal and Walmer, the medieval walled city of Canterbury and the narrow lanes and pretty timbered houses of Sandwich as well as lovely rural countryside. The long and varied coast offers the differing resorts of Whitstable, Broadstairs and Folkstone and inland are many pretty country villages with tea rooms. The oldest brewery in England is based at historic Faversham and Tenterden has a picture postcard High Street lined with antique shops. There is also the beautiful and historic garden of Vita Sackville West at Sissinghurst and The Secret Garden in Sandwich designed by Sir Edward Lutyens.
It is also easy to visit France from Dover or via the Eurotunnel and there are 2 major shopping areas - Westwood Cross near Ramsgate and a discoun outlett village near Ashford.
Kent offers a wealth of activities for all year round - there are 3 championship golf courses, walking with wonderful views from the Saxon Shore way along the shore and the cliff tops and of course sailing and fishing anywhere along the coast or on lakes. A short drive takes you to country pubs, tea rooms and antique shops or feel the wind in your hair on any of the cycle paths!

"Brilliant - We loved it"
This is the second time we have stayed at this cottage. The first time being Christmas of 2012. We love the cottage. It is close to everything, always warm and welcoming, decorated beautifully and suits all ages.
We also met the couple who owned the cottage and they were also lovely, friendly and welcoming.
We can't wait to go back and stay. Feels like home from home.
