Bayviews Holiday Cottage: Situated in the town of Herne Bay in the South East of England, this comfortable single level holiday home overlooks the Thames Estuary. Near to Hampton Pier on the West side of Herne Bay it is in the ideal location for holidaymakers: a pleasant stroll along the seafront from the main promenade and town centre but far enough away from the main bustle to provide a haven for relaxation.Positioned atop a small hill, the detached cottage is a stone's throw from the beach and mere minutes walk from a free-to-launch slipway, playing field and children's playground. This pleasantly furnished and comfortably appointed cottage has a conservatory which spans the entire length of the building, allowing uninterrupted panoramic views of the seascapes and magnificent sunsets.With a convenience store within half a mile and historic towns like Canterbury and Whitstable nearby, Bayviews holiday cottage is in an outstanding location from which to enjoy the local area by foot, car or public transport.

Herne Bay and Whitstable: Herne Bay is a popular seaside retreat which really comes alive during the summer months. Nestled on the Kent coast between Reculver and Whitstable, the town's enchanting seafront has been a favourite with visitors since the Victorian era.Young and old alike can delight in the promenade where ice cream parlours, fish and chip shops, amusement arcades and pleasant pubs serve up the traditional British seaside experience. Great beaches lined with brightly coloured beach huts reflect the great character of this seaside town. Sporting enthusiasts including rowers, yachtsmen and jet ski riders pursue their passion in Herne Bay's waters.

The small fishing port of Whitstable has acquired a unique character: a welcoming fusion of traditional maritime charms and modern culture.The town has a reputation for fine oysters: craft shops, boutiques, art galleries, sweet shops, delicatessens, bistros, restaurants, butchers, bakers, gift shops, a theatre, museum and a pub on the beach.

Canterbury: A thriving modern city built amongst historical landmarks, Canterbury's cobbled streets and impressive architecture provide today's visitor with plenty to do and see.One of the most famous historical sites in England, Canterbury Cathedral was the scene of Thomas Becket's murder. This event cemented the Cathedral's status as a popular destination for religious pilgrimages, a practice immortalised in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. The breathtaking Cathedral bell towers dominate the city skyline and with serene tombs, a 12th Century quire and Romanesque Crypt it's a must see attraction for visitors from far and wide. Canterbury boasts a city wall that was constructed in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th Century, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and the oldest Franciscan Friary in England. A guided tour on foot is the best way to soak up the vibrant history still evident today. Alternatively, boat trips of the River Stour afford a popular, and more laid back approach.

A great stay, the accommodation was generously appointed, spotlessly clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This quirky place turned out to be a gem. Full of games for both children and adults, literally on the coast path and near a play park. Lots of space, very well equipped kitchen, and kindly and informative hosts just across the road. We even had a few of East Kent's spectacular sunsets to complement our stay. The children have asked to come back again next year and we certainly hope to.

Une semaine merveilleuse

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine à Bayview cottage. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants, et la maison est l'une des mieux équipées dans lesquelles nous avons séjourné, avec de nombreux jeux. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le billard et les fléchettes! La véranda sur le jardin, aux fauteuils confortables, permet d'apprécier la vue même quand il fait frais, c'est un endroit vraiment agréable dont on a bien profité. La région offre largement de quoi s'occuper pour une semaine, et même plus. Nous étions tristes de partir, et avons bien l'intention de revenir!

Owner's Response: Google translation of Miren's review :- A wonderful week * * * * * We had a great week at Bayview Cottage. The owners are very welcoming, and the house is one of the best equipped in which we stayed, with many games. We especially enjoyed the pool table and darts! The veranda on the garden, with comfortable chairs, allows to enjoy the view even when it's fresh, it's a really nice place which we enjoyed. The area largely provides plenty to do for a week, and more. We were sad to leave, and we intend to return! Date of arrival 25 July 2015
