The South East England region
Kent is full of historic towns and pretty villages and has outstanding countryside (go to the North Downs). There are many great places to dine out, from sophistcated bars and reataurants to gastro pubs. There are some fabulous market towns and Canterbury is a must see. The region is also famous for its orchards and hop farms. Try a drive out to the vineyards to sample the award winning sparkling and white wines. Kent is truly the garden of England.
Whitstable is the gem on the North Kent coast. Just one and a half hours from the centre of London by road or rail. Famous for its oysters, the regatta and its beach huts: frequented by overseas visitors, the town has become "the place to stay". Speciality shops, good range of restaurants (celebrity chef Richard Phillips at the Pearson’s Arms and the famous Wheeler’s Oyster Bar) and two Michelin-starred ones within easy distance. Local pubs have interesting live music. Whitstable also has a thriving arts vibe. Although Whitstable has become busier, it has a tasteful and relaxed, chic feel to it. All based in a uniquely preserved seaside conservation area. It is reputed to have more independently owned shops in the high street than any other high street in England. The town features frequently in Sunday supplements and magazines.
Amenities: arts centre, bowling, tennis courts and swimming pool, golf, sailing, canoeing. Whitstable Castle is also worth a visit with its pretty gardens and tea room and fabulous views across the bay. Weekend market by the harbour.

"DON'T STAY HERE. Charged a huge amount of hidden costs from deposit"
Left a very sour taste to what should have been a nice holiday. The landlord employed unfair and underhand tactics to take as much money from our deposit as he could, despite us causing no damage and … More
We have been going for two years and have had excellent reviews - in fact we haven't had any bad reviews. We have a good relationship with all our guests and many return.
My husband and I were very upset to have to hold back some deposit money. We have never taken a penny in two years from anyone's deposit. You booked for two adults and the cottage was used as a party venue. We had complaints from neighbours. There was a lot of cleaning and heavy furniture was moved around. This involves extra cleaning costs as my cleaner had to have help getting things ready for the next guests.
I would like to reassure any body wishing to stay at Harbour Cottage. Because we care about our customers - that is why our reviews have consistently been excellent over the two years we have been operating. We are an honest, courteous family who are very upset regarding this review.
