The South East England region
Sitting demurely in London’s backyard, Kent is justly described the garden of England. This neatly manicured landscape of lush farmland, cultivated country estates, fruitful orchards, and carefully nurtured tourist attractions seems to mirror its own glorious public gardens on a grand scale. It’s also the beer garden of England, producing the world-renowned Kent hops and some of the country’s finest ales. Here too are long coastal stretches dotted with old-fashioned beach resorts, spellbinding Canterbury crowned by its fascinating cathedral, and the port of Dover which is close enough to France to smell the garlic or hop over on a day trip to taste it.
With history along every lane, an old alehouse on every corner and a captivating World Heritage–listed cathedral plump in its heart, Canterbury is one of southern England’s top attractions. Its narrow medieval alleyways and precarious timber-beamed buildings are a joy to explore, as are its riverside gardens and ancient city walls. Yet Canterbury is no mere showpiece to times past, but a spirited and lively place with a large student contingent and a wide choice of contemporary bars, restaurants and arts. But book ahead for the best hotels and eateries: pilgrims may no longer flock here in their thousands but there’s a year-round flood of tourists to replace them.
Whitstable is renowned for being a gourmet-lover's heaven. There are at least half a dozen fantastic restaurants within 1 minutes walk of the house including the Oyster Fishery Company, Wheelers Oyster bar, Samphire, Pearsons Arms as well as a fantastic fish and chip shop. A coffee man brews fantastic coffee on the front at the weekend virtually on the doorstep and sells his Mum's amazing cakes and a beach shack serves fresh oysters and fab donuts! A short drive away is the renowned Michelin starred Sportsman pub at Seasalter and in the opposite direction is JoJo's tapas bar in Tankerton. You could eat somewhere different every day of the week for a month and not use the car!
The high street is on your doorstep and has a fantastic array of independent shops(claiming to be the best for this in the UK) with women’s clothing boutiques , kids clothes, a record shop, a deli, ice cream parlour, cupcake shop etc, etc. There a very few chain stores.
Food can be bought from Budgens the supermarket, within walking distance or Tesco's a short drive away as well as fresh fish from the fish market.
There is rarely a night without live entertainment in Whitstable-from live bands to a regular comedy club.
The fascinating city of Canterbury with its famous cathedral is about 15 mins drive or a bus ride away. It has a new theatre - the Marlowe.
Margate, again a short drive away, is a traditional seaside town which now houses the new Turner Contemporary Art Gallery.
To work off all the excesses of food there are public tennis courts just off the seafront and a swimming pool within walking distance as well as a golf course.

"A tasteful, immaculate seaside cottage"
I would definitely recommend this cottage, it's cosy and tastefully done out and very well equipped. The owners have a very good eye for detail with lovely Jo Malone candles and soaps, lovely bits and bobs around the house which gave it that seaside cottage feel and clean, fresh bedding and towels. The location was excellent, a stones throw away to the beach and into the town. A car was certainly not necessary.
Its compact but has everything you need.

"Stylish, very comfortable cottage in a great location"
We spent 3 nights at 4 Sea Street and our stay could not have been better. The cottage has been very stylishly done up, with a lot of attention to detail, making it a very comfortable, cosy place to stay. It is obvious that the owners have gone for quality everywhere and we really appreciated this. Comfortable sofas in the living room, well equipped kitchen and a really good bed with the down duvet and pillows deserving a special mention.
The location in Whitstable is great, literally a few steps from the harbour, shops and restaurants.
The steep steps in the cottage need to be negotiated carefully and during the day there is quite a bit of traffic going past, but that was not a problem at night.

"Beautiful, welcoming house"
We stayed for a few days just after Christmas. Jo was extremely helpful in arranging the booking, and when we arrived the house was spotlessly clean and stylish, with a pint of milk in the fridge, teabags and snacks read for our arrival after our journey. Jo was very quick to respond when we couldn't get the wifi working and it was sorted out immediately. The property is is moments from the beach and the town, so we could happily stroll out to restaurants and shops. The bathroom has no radiator, but aside from that the property was very cosy. The steps up to the bedrooms are exceedingly steep, and would be unsuitable for people with mobility issues, although absolutely fine for us. Parking wasn't the easiest, but we were able to drop off our bags outside before moving the car elsewhere. There is some traffic past the front of the house, but it wasn't unacceptable. I would happily return here.
