9 Reasons to Avoid Kent in 2019

Sand sandwiches are SO 1980s. And quiet country lanes are rubbish for playing car games that require spotting other cars. But without further ado, allow us to expand on our reasons to avoid Kent this year, or next for that matter…

1. Temptation for a tipple

2. Thick stone walls do nothing for mobile signal

3. Diets are broken here

4. Adrenalin addiction likely

5. You might discover art

6. Seafood sucks you in

7. Kent air works up an appetite

8. Step-o-meters report exhaustion

9. Facts so fascinating you’ll want to join a pub quiz team

There’s really nothing to see here. But if we’ve failed in our mission to put you off Kent holidays, you can browse our Kent holiday cottages below instead...
