Location description from owner

The England region

It's a cliche but Kent is known as the 'Garden of England' for good reason! There are beautiful woods, hop gardens, orchards, rolling hills, farms, picnicking and wildlife areas, scenic drives, cycling routes and designated walks throughout the county.

Not to mention the county's impressive coastline with its many award-winning beaches and its striking chalky cliffs, its 'infinite variety' appealing to those seeking golden sands and amenities such as Margate and Broadstairs or those who opt for natural bays with rock pools and cliff faces as well as those after the more remote and stark beauty of areas such as Dungeness, made known by Derek Jarman.

Kent has an abundance of places of interest and heritage sites. It has castles galore, animal parks, museums that commemorate its maritime and literary heritages, a plethora of historic houses, steam train rides, woodland climbing courses. Canterbury with its incredible cathedral and medieval architecture, and river trip is a must.

France is easily accessible from Dover and Folkestone for an exciting day trip.

Whitstable

Aka 'the Bubble', Whitstable is famed for its oysters and has one of the few remaining working harbours complete with a small fleet fishing boats and fish market.
With its authentic town centre and proximity to Canterbury, London and France and to the fabulous golden beaches of Margate and Broadstairs, it is a much loved place to live in as well as to visit. It avoids being a 'resort' yet has much to offer visitors...

The town centre has an impressive selection of everyday as well as unique, independent shops; art galleries; numerous cafes, eateries and renowned restaurants . Many pubs and venues have live music and comedy nights and there are many delightful places simply to drink and chat in on the beach front, in the town centre and on the outskirts of town.

Strolling around the town and seafront areas reveals a captivating range of architecture, from traditional fisherman's cottages, beach houses, arts and crafts to uber stylish contemporary dwellings.

The beach huts that typify the English coast are much in evidence from the Seasalter to the Tankerton ends of Whitstable,with often quirky and individual decorative schemes. Alongside the 'groynes', or breakwaters, and pebbly beach, the striking beauty of the Kentish coast is at its best here.

Nearby Margate with its glorious sandy beach, Turner Contemporary Gallery and chic Old Town is a 20 mins train ride away (little point to drive when the station is 1 minute walk from the beach!) Slightly further afield, the Victorian resort and one time base of Charles Dickens, Broadstairs offers several fabulous sandy beaches and a great day out.

Scenic walks / bike rides to Reculver and Minnis Bay are easily accessible on the Saxon Shore Way.

Golf, tennis, water sports, children's soft play area, bowling alley and an indoor swimming pool are all available locally as well as the traditional seaside past time of crabbing.

“Nice family home with good garden”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2014

So we booked this property for ourselves, our boys (17 & 12) and both sets of parents. Despite the rain and the fact that we had days where we were kept inside this place was big enough for us not to fall out! Many different areas and plenty of space. Fantastic. On the sunny days the garden was just fab, space for the boys, an eating area and a quiet space away from the house. Twenty min (max) walk into town, v nice. Nice pub up the road. The booking process was both easy and friendly. I would highly recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments about the house and garden. I'm so glad that it worked out for you all and that you enjoyed your stay despite some poor weather at times.
