Holiday Cottages in Kent & Sussex

Kent, the ‘Garden of England’, with its gently undulating hills and abundant orchards is famed for its hop gardens and Oast Houses, together with a growing industry of winemaking. The diverse but spectacular coastline with seven wonderful sandy bays along the Thanet coast to the colourful pebble stone beaches stretching from Sandwich to Hythe, dotted with an abundance of history, our grand castles and tales of smuggling to name just two. If history is not your cup of tea, we have a vast mix of attractions and places of interest along with great shopping destinations. 

Dreamland in Margate, a family attraction from the past that has been recreated, The Turner contemporary gallery standing in prime position on the seafront together with wildlife parks to suit all ages. Canterbury town centre offers a cultural experience with West End shows at the Marlowe Theatre and of course the glorious Cathedral. Cycling along the network of cycle paths both on and off road are another way to take in the scenery and enjoy the glorious countryside. Just 21 miles away is France, which on a clear day can be seen with the naked eye. So, if you fancy a day trip during your stay, don’t forget to pack your passport. Ferry sailings from Dover or trains from Eurotunnel at Folkestone are available.

Sussex, East and West, 1066 country, with glorious beaches, including Camber which is the only sand dune system in East Sussex, ideal for kite surfing and also adorable villages nestling in the idyllic South Downs fabulous for rambling, dog walking and to rest your weary legs in one of the many welcoming pubs. Steam train enthusiasts will be in their element here with The Kent and Sussex light railway and the Bluebell line. Further along the coast is Brighton, famous for its lanes, a shopper’s paradise made up of a fantastic maze of twisting alleyways giving a creative edge to your shopping in the many independent shops and boutiques.

From quaint coastguard and fisherman’s cottages to bright modern seafront apartments, our collection of properties is waiting to be snapped up.
