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. The pebble beaches baked by the iconic British beach huts are ideal places to sit, swim and picnic.

Very comfortable beds with beautiful bed linen, just the right weight duvet and throws. The decor was to my taste and the finish was very good. Every small detail had been thought of. We would definitely recommend to others, although not if we go back as we will want it!

It is so welcoming, comfortable and has everything you could need. Tucked away in a peaceful corner of Richards huge garden, with walks on the door step and beaches just a 20 minute drive away.
