The South East England region
Kent also known as "The Garden of England" is one of the prettiest counties in England with an abundance of picture postcard villages and rolling fields. Kent enjoys one of the best climates in the UK and particularly the coastal region of south Kent due to its proximity with the Continent. Kent is steeped in history from days of the Vikings, the occupation by the Roman Empire, the invasion by the Normans, through to Oliver Cromwell and the English Civil War. Many famous battles were fought in Kent including the Battle of Hastings, the Battle of Maidstone, the Battle of Aylsford and many others right up to the Battle of Britain during the Second World War. There is a wide selection of museams in Kent in addition to many prestigous Stately Homes such as Leeds Casle near Maidstone. Canterbury and its famous cathedral is a short distance from Margate and for those interested in naval history or just wishing to pop over to Calais for the day then Dover is just along the coast.
Margate is one of Englands most famous Victorian seaside towns with a commanding position overlooking the sea surrounded by many sandy beaches (the main Margate beach being the largest) all of which have the European Flag of approval. Margate has one of the sunniest climates in England and an abundance of available outdoor activities. From sailing, swimming, kite surfing, golf, to cycling or rambling along the coastline Margate and the surrounding area offers beautiful scenery in a vibrant environment. Margate's old town has undergone extensive renovation in recent years and contains an array of fine art galleries, traditional pubs, wine bars, and restaurants to enjoy and relax in as you wander around the cobblestone streets. The recent addition of the Turner Contemporary has attracted national praise for both the gallery and the exhibitions staged to date. Along the coast is Royal Ramsgate with its beatiful marina many harbouside restaurants and wine bars. Further along the coast is the famous sea side town of Broadstairs steeped in the history of Charles Dickens.This lovely town has many fine bars and restaurants and Viking Bay provides a beautiful beach location. Various festivals and events occur throughout the year in both Margate and Broadstairs including jazz, folk music, beach volley ball, art and literary events. Quex House,a fine voluminous country mansion near Birchington offers 250 acres of beautiful parkland and a farm shop. For the golfer there is an abundance of golf clubs in and around the Isle of Thanet including the world famous Royal St George's at Sandwich.

"Like home from home!"
We had a lovely weeks stay in the apartment. It exceeded our expectations, great space, nice decor and furnishings and everything we needed as a family. I personally would have appreciated a hoover to have kept the apartment as immaculate as we found it but that's by no means a negative. The owner and his wife were very accommodating and helpful. As a family we would definitely stay again and would highly recommend.
