Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in South East England your home away from home

Officially, the South East of England consists of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent, East and West Sussex, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and the Isle of Wight, although there are many different popular definitions of South East England.

Kent, the ‘garden of England’, is England’s oldest county, shaped by many centuries of violent history. This turbulent past which has shaped the county is celebrated today, from the preservation of prominent historical monuments and castles to the home of Winston Churchill. Wakeboarding is Kent’s new love, and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy this exciting new sport from a South East England cottage in Kent.

East Sussex is a rural haven for walking, trout fishing and cycling. The spectacular coastline which contains the famous Seven Sisters, Beachy Head and Rye Harbour Nature Reserve has long been a magnet for walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders.

What a little Gem!

5 of 5
Set in a beautiful garden, the pretty Granary has absolutely everything you need. A huge comfy bed in a lovely big bedroom, a large living area with comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen and a neat bathroom. It is close enough to the ferry/tunnel to make it a great stop over point, but far enough away from the noise and traffic of Dover or Folkstone. Robin and Hazel are friendly hosts, chatty but not intrusive. Perfect! Will definitely stay here again when we come this way.

Personal Service, beautiful home and excellent location

5 of 5
It was great to be shown around this lovely house by it's owner Julia a real personal touch in this day and age of "go to the key safe and let yourself in". Really appreciated the well stocked kitchen cupboards, everything you need if you want to cook and breakfast items provided. The location is ideal just minutes from the beach in one direction and the town in the other. Don't want to say too much as we might not be able to get booked in next time! We will definitely come back to The Hythe House.
