Make a holiday home or holiday cottage in Kent your home away from home

Kent, the ‘garden of England’, is located in the South East of England, consisting of an exhilarating coastline, open unspoilt countryside and some of the oldest and most important cities and towns in England. If you are looking for self catering holiday accommodation in Kent, you are probably aware of much of what is on offer in England’s oldest county.

Things to do on holiday in Kent

Much of England’s history is centred around Kent, with Julius Caesar, William the Conqueror and Napoleon all landing at some point on the shores of the Kent Coastline. This has left Kent with the most impressive and stately castles, grand houses and fascinating historic monuments in England. Canterbury Cathedral, Dover Castle and Penshurst Palace are amongst a few of the most notable places of interest to explore from a Kent holiday cottage.

The coastline, upon which much of the self catering holiday accommodation in Kent is found, is a haven for water sports. Kite surfing has risen to new levels as a sport in Kent, especially around Whitstable and Ramsgate, and surfers flock to Kent holiday cottages in Joss Bay. There are plentiful sailing waters, and jet skiing, kite surfing, windsurfing and sailing courses available from a Kent holiday cottage along the coast. The seal colonies at Herne Bay and the RSPB Nature Reserve in Dungeness are great places to visit on a family holiday to Kent.

Walking and cycling holidays are a spectacular way to discover the many treasures available from a Kent holiday cottage. Walking along the infamous White Cliffs of Dover or through a bluebell carpeted wood fills you with an enormous sense of wellbeing, and lets you return to a holiday home in Kent feeling great. Kent also has 90 public golf courses, so those of you yearning for a round from your self catering holiday accommodation in Kent need not worry; you can undoubtedly find a course, if you can find the time!

There are some great ideas for family holidays to Kent. The sandy beaches and captivating castles of Kent are backed up by charming wildlife parks, Diggerland and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway.

It is ideally situated close to the high street and sea front and the rooms are all very generous and beautifully presented. The kitchen is among the best equipped we have come across and the jars of sweets in the front room are a nice touch. We'll be back

Can't recommend it highly enough. Beds and pillows so comfortable and the first time I haven't had to sharpen the kitchen knives. Pretty much everything you could want was provided and the overhead shower was a dream. Willow the dog had a great time too playing in the secure graveled back garden. What a shame we have a policy of never visiting the same place twice. Damn!
